Charter boat for fishing

Fishing boat trips in Bali and Nusa Penida are an immersive way to experience the island’s beautiful coasts, as well as admire the views of the island from a different perspective. The tours and charters are provided by various marine adventure and water sport companies in Bali and are usually an available option complementing dive tours. The boat captain and crew takes you out on a full-day cruise to wonderful locations, with fishing rods at the stern and lures and lines in tow. This is the most common method offered by fishing tours in Bali, specialising in deep sea fishing, and otherwise known as trolling. The method is used to catch deep-sea fish, and the waters around Bali’s southern coasts are teeming with big game. The boat ride to the exotic fishing sites is usually part of the thrill, and it’s all topped with your successful strike, as you reel in your prize mahi-mahi, wahoo, tuna, trevally, barracuda, or even an Indo-Pacific blue marlin!

Most marine adventure tour operators take their fishing boats down to the deep south-eastern waters off Bali, where rich currents bring together most kinds of popular game fish. Trips start out mostly in the morning from your chosen operator’s base, Tanjung Benoa being the most common point of departure. Hotel pick-up transfers are usually included and, by the time you arrive at the dock, the crew will have already prepared your snacks and drinks, tackle and all the required fishing gear. High hopes of catching a giant marlin might already be on your mind at this point. However, boat fishing is just like any other kind of fishing. There’s always a fifty-fifty chance of success. Some may spend a whole day without even a single tug on their line, while others may get a bountiful harvest in just an hour out at sea.

A few minutes out, the crew will cast out three or four lines at the stern, while the captain steadily lowers the speed to a steady pull - a common technique in troll fishing. You will then observe, while having a go at handling the rods in between. Specially designed ‘fly’ lures are used, sometimes in variations to attract different kinds of game. Barracuda, for example, like to snatch silvery objects they think are shiny mackerel. You will reach the southernmost waters within half an hour. At times, the captain will opt for areas with many seagulls, which often hunt for small fish. Obviously, many small fish should also mean many big fish. This waiting time is usually filled with interesting stories from the crew, as well as chatting about all the technical sides of marine fishing, including all the special gear, lures, weights and hooks and their intended catches.
