    Company Information

    We are currently in the process of building a 30 foot game fishing boat. This boat is due to be finished and water trialed in early November. It's capabilities will far surpass anything in Goa. No other boat there will even come close to this new boat. It will be able to carry 4 fisherman, and a further 4 onlookers. It will also have a crew of 1 skipper and 1 deckhand. It will have a range of just over 200 nautical miles. At a cruising speed of 22knots. It will be completely fitted out for game and sport fishing.

    This boat will be available for a full day charter with crew. A light lunch and soft drinks will be provided.

    The second option we can offer is our custom sports fishing boats. They primarily work the river mouths, and estuary systems. They are also fully fitted out as sports fishing boats. However although large {5.8meters} we only fish 2 anglers per boat. Again with a crew of 2. This way we ensure a comfortable fishing trip and increase your chances of captured fish. Once again, there are no boats in Goa that even come close to our range of custom fishing boats.

    We provide all fishing tackle and lures. Our fishing equipment can accommodate the range from professional to beginner. From light to heavy game fishing apparel.

    The offshore fishing is good. The caught species are generally, KING MACKERAL, WAHOO, MAHI MAHI {dolphin fish }, and if we are lucky we also get Sailfish.

    The option of the inshore fishing, is especially appealing. We catch large Barramundi, Mangrove Jack {red snapper} and Threadfin salmon. These are all sports fish and are very hard fighters. They are in large numers.

    We provide drinks and a light lunch. If we have clients on board who wish to defer, we can organise a stop at a riverside restaurant for a fantastic lunch.

    My name is Matthew. I am originally from Goa. I am a professional fisherman. I have fished in waters all around the world. From Africa for Nile Perch, Scotland for Scottish Salmon, Alaska for Giant Sturgeon and saltwater Trout species, Mexico for Tailor, Patagonia for Rainbow Trout, Canada for Rainbow Trout and Salmon, Papua for New Guinea Giant Bass, New Zealand for Kingfish, Mauritius for Marlin, and my home in Australia for a great number of fish species. I am a fly fishing champion. I have won countless game fishing titles, estuary fishing and rock and beach fishing championships.

    I design Sports Fishing Boats, hull design and interior layouts for some of the top sports fishing boat manufacturers. I live in Sydney Australia, but now travel to Goa India from October to February to run the Fishing venture in Goa. I have invested a lot of money in building a fleet of state of the art Sports Fishing boats there. I would not let a client fish from a boat that i, myself would not fish from.

    We also have our own fishing lodge here in Goa. For our clients. It is 4 to 5 star accommodation with all meals and fishing included. We offer other activities such as Island trips, Crocodile trips, Diving trips Bird Watching, Sightseeing, and beach trips. This we do for families that come to us where the men want to fish, and the wife and kids want to do other things.

    Depending on the number of people, we can come to certain arrangements on costings. We are currently booking people from Australia, Canada, New Zealand, China, Germany, Switzerland, and Arabic Nations. We are charging $970 per person per night for this package. That is accommodation, which includes all meals, fishing and the other activities. There is no-one in Goa that can offer what we can.

    Circumnavigate Samoa by kayak

    Next year I plan on becoming the first white man to circumnavigate Samoa by kayak. In preparation for that journey, I recently entered the Samoa International Game Fishing Association’s (SIFA) 2012 International Fishing Tournament and competed against the big game boats over 4 days on the water. During this time I went beyond the 1000 foot drop off in the Pacific Ocean on Samoa’s north coast, was accompanied by dolphins, got caught in a huge storm, landed a 4.6kg Spanish Mackerel, sailed through all manner of sea states from glass to 5 foot swell, and although tiring, had an absolute adventure!

    During the adventure I used a POV camera as a head cam, and a couple of Contour HD cameras as back-ups. At one stage in the movie I almost hooked a massive tuna from a cast, and all that footage was captured – it’s an awesome sight. This was a great test for the kayak and the filming equipment, and there are a few modifications I’ll be making before the big journey next year. I hope you enjoy this short production – I certainly enjoyed making it.
