The destination spots where we will fish are around 30-40 minutes cruise onboard our power boat, starts from Labuan Bajo harbor.
There are so many fishing spots in this area that will satisfy all of our guests. The fishing in a day will produce 20-30 strikes, especially in peak season, every september thru december annually. It also has a good season all year and on month March.
The fishing tackle class that should be use in Komodo is spinning type with the class of 80 pounds/lbs. If you are experienced sportfisherman and would like to try smaller tackle are also possible. But we would like recommend the 80lbs class and more so the chance for the GT to survive due to the fight time is bigger. With the smaller class, the fighting time will take longer time that exhaust our catch, makes lower survival chance for the target fish.
