Cyril has always heard that the waters of the Atlantic ocean in Guiana, South America hold an incredible variety of big fish… But what Cyril really has come to South America for is a true special evil looking fish that looks like it directly arrived from another planet: the giant traira.
Cyril starts his journey with a day of salt water fishing with Pascal and a group of his friends. They fish a pinnacle that holds some beautiful dodgy cubera snappers and reel screaming kingfish.
Then Cyril meets with Francis and Thia, two locals who have a passion for the giant traira. Together with Cyril, they will go on an expedition up the Sinamary river on a motored canoe to fish this monster-like predator in the tiny pools of some rapids… Wading through the fast jungle waters, Cyril will soon know why this bruiser is renowned for its spectacular fights… Action guaranteed…
Super easy and fast way to filet a fish. Misa will reveal a secret Japanese technique to season, cure and grill Spanish Mackerel, too. Filet a whole fish and impress everyone!
http://www.reefari.com This fishing and jigging video shows Knife jigs are great for targetting deep water pelagic fish, It’s a tactic we’ll use when the Spanish Mackerel are holding deep below the trolled lures. Quite often you’ll see a school of fish and generally the larger mackerel, etc aren’t far away, Drift the school and structure with knife jigs can be a game changer and put some runs on the board. That’s what we did in this video and scored some nice Spanish for the effort, or else we wouldn’t have caught anything. Just drop your jig to the bottom and high speed retrieve, Mackerel just love a fast retrieve and will quickly home in on your lure if in the area. This jigging technique is also great on other species such as Yellowtail Kingfish and Samson fish.
The jigs are Reidy’s Heavy duty knife jigs, with a great variety of sizes. The only thing I would recommend is putting wire assist hook rigs on to prevent bite off by Spanish mackerel’s sharp teeth.

Our second trip on the big blue chasing big GT’s and doggies in the Andaman Islands India.
Another amazing trip in the very capable hands of gamefishingindia. Great weather this time and the fishing didn’t disappoint, loads of surface hits on the poppers. We just need to get better at keeping the hooks in ! Jigging was fun too with some good doggies caught. Check out in the vid what took a 15lbs yellow fin tuna livebait !
Had some nice GT’s to 25Kg, but lost a few much bigger. needed another holiday after a weeks fishing as our arms were dropping off !
Enjoy the video
http://www.reefari.com This fishing video shows some great fishing and trolling tips for Tuna and Spanish Mackerel off Mackay around the islands and parker reef. These fishing tips will work anywhere on the Great barrier reef from Hervey bay to Cairns and further north, so well worth a try. This was a gamefishing weekend with the mackay game fishing club and Ian was kind enough to take us for a run on his 18ft Shark cat, “Mates Rate”. The weather was perfect and it was great to see how the smaller cats run. An older hull but with great sea keeping abililties it wasn’t bothered on the day with only small chop. They make for a great fishing boat with heaps of deck space, and can fish up to 4 anglers with no worries. They’re also great for trolling with us running a spread of two lures and two wogs with gars. It’s also worth checking out our “how to rig wogs” video, an easy trolling rig and deadly on Spanish Mackerel. The success rates with these trolling rigs are excellant.
The weather was perfect and as soon as we got to Calder Island, the Tuna were on the Chew, we managed to catch, tag and release a few northern Blue or also known as longtail tuna on lures straight up. Jason lost a real nice fish and could have been a good sized spanish Mackerel, but that’s fishing. After a few nice fish and some good tag points on the cards and the fishing slowed we headed off to Parker reef, about 45 nautical miles off Mackay. As mentioned in the video it’s always worth a troll on the northern point of Calder Island. Always look for defined points and deep water/ledges, they’re normally always be some pelagic fish nearby.
Here we did some more trolling and come across some good numbers of juvenile Spanish Mackerel, nothing huge but once again we got some good points for the Game fishing comp. For the one day we went well and missed out on winning by one fish, and that could have been the one I dropped on the side of the boat. We ended up with a good haul of fish, although we tagged and released them all and had some good laughs. Great for research as well!!
Sometimes fishing, it’s just great to get out on the water.

Rob visits a remote indigenous community in the Tiwi Islands, Northern Territory to meet up with Andy Warton who started the “Off the Hook” program uniting local police with indigenous kids through their commonly loved pastime of fishing.
Then as an extra treat, the indigenous Marine Rangers, who patrol the region for illegal fishing and ghost nets, show Rob their work, before demonstrating just how good fishing can be when regulations are enforced properly.
http://www.reefari.com This Livebait fishing rig video by Ian shows an excellant rig for using with Fusiliers on the Great Barrier reef for Spanish Mackerel. Red bellied Fusiliers are in plague proportions on the reef, and are the Resident Baitfish that Spanish Mackerel, GT’s, Coral trout and heaps more feed on. So of course they make a great livebait. This rig is also great with other similar size fish such as Stripeys, Husseys, small trevally, etc, If it’s live, it’s well worth putting out under a balloon when anchored along a reef edge. Always try and have a livebait rig out under a balloon, while the rest of the gang can continue on reef fishing. It’s just a matter of sitting back and waiting.
I recommend a good quality overhead fishing reel and line, and a good lively bait. These usually can be caught quite easily on a bait jig, or with some smaller hooks and sqid, cast amongst some berly. I like to run the livebait about 20 to 30 feet below a balloon and out behind the boat. The size of the balloon will depend on the wind, In light wind conditions, a bigger balloon is needed to keep the livebait away from the boat. The sinker is a great addition and this helps keep the fish down deeper and swimming into the current.
A great livebait fishing rig with Balloon and well worth trying when reef fishing, we’ve caught a heap of spanish Mackerel on Livebait, very effective.
