Dear all,

I was thinking of either one of the locations for a pure popping/jigging trip. I will be booking a trip with www.gamefishingasia.com to make this trip happen.

Any feed back on the above mentioned subject or are there any Kakis who have been on either or both locations to share their exprience with regards of the following,

1. Cost
2. Catch rate and type of species 
3. Logistics
4. Type of tackle to be brought along.

Again, thank you for any advice on that may come from any of the kakis.

    1. Look to pay about SGD$3200 + ALL IN (with Flight) 

    2. GT and YELLOWFIN TUNA

    3. There are 2 flights in total if I am not wrong. 

    4. Same as with any popping trip. Easier to ask what you have. I'd being my Carpenter TBL PE8, Ripple Ultimo and TR GT Stick PE 10. Stella 18, 10 and 14 respectively. 

    A selection of 120 to 200 Gram lures. 

    Jigs I would use 180 to 250 Grams.
