Sri Lanka is an excellent place to cast your line and participate in the exciting sport of inland and deep sea fishing. The sea of Hikkaduwa is known as one of the best places for game fishing. Here the waters abound with Grouper, Mullet, Spangled Emperor, Bone Fish, Parrot Fish, Rabbit Fish and Barracudas to name a few. Modified fishing boats equipped for professional game fishing will take you out to sea; you will be provided with safety equipment, fishing gear, bait and even food and drinks. Start fishing immediately after the boat leaves or wait till the boat anchors in deep sea at previously identified fish rich points. All you have to do is enjoy the expedition and fish till you drop. And if you are lucky you might observe playful Dolphins following the boat.
Sri Lanka s deep sea fishing is dependent on the season, with western and southern coasts accessible from November to April and the east coast being more suitable from May to September.
