Devastating Fishing in Bruma Banks


We have a report from Aidil and Pang from Singapore. They took a trip to Burma Banks. I saw the pictures of their catch and my jaw just dropped. What kind of place is??? Burma Banks??? Myanmar???
It seems that they have impressed their friends and proved the effectiveness of slow pitch jigging.

Hi Totos,

Just came back from my 3 days 3 nights fishing trip in Burma Banks with 10 others. It was an awesome trip with me and a friend, Pang Satawat, mostly on slow pitch. First catch on slow pitch was a doggie. Since then many varieties of fishes were caught on slow jigs, Yellowfin, GT, big eye trevally, amberjack, skipjack, garoupa, snapper, red ruby, long nosed emperor, mangrove jack, baracouta and even a 2m white tip shark caught by Pang Satawat. The sizes also varies but mostly 4 to 5kg.

I am very impressed by the variety and consistency (depending on technique and speed of pitches/jigs) of fishes caught on slow jigs. Even though I have lost a few jigs, I am glad I lost it to fishes and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. I feel that I have much more to learn and am looking forward to the next trip.
