The rule of thumb is, the deeper the water, the bigger the fish. You never know when or where a big fish will strike. We fish off west coast of Goa, India, approx. 40- 60kms offshore. Depth range 160-260ft. Hi speed trolling, use of GPS, fish finder depth sounder, compass covering lots of ground to locate fish. Once located, fishing is done at steady trolling speed. Techniques range from trolling artificial lure, natural baits, also trolling with down riggers Experience the thrill and excitement of trolling lures through a Mackerel and Tuna feeding frenzy.
