Unchartered Waters – Bassas da India
Unchartered Waters is a true saltwater adventure film set in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Mozambique with 6 anglers realising their dreams after 3 years of planning. Conditions are cramped with 10 people in all on just a 42ft Catamaran and they've brought a ton of fishing gear too, with trolling rods for Sailfish, Marlin and Tuna as well as a range of heavyweight fly rods from 8 weights all the way up to 16 weight. After 3 days, they finally approach Bassas and the trolling rods start beding over with some nice Yellowfin Tuna coming to the boat. With sharks now circling the boat and Sailfish, Wahoo, Barracuda as well as abundant Tunabeing caught, the first day's fishing has been a lot of fun. With a lot of fly anglers on the boat, they approach the captain to devise a plan to target the huge schools of Tuna around, which entails pulling them up to the surface with poppers and then casting flies at the fish. The action is relentless but sharks are playing havoc by attacking their hooked fish near the boat so often the only way is to step up their tackle and bully fish in quickly which is easier said than done. The following day, they reach the Bassas area and leave the main boat to fish on the flats around an atoll targetting Parrotfish and Kingfish. They soon find huge quantities of Parrotfish but these fish are not easy to catchand it requires a lot of skill to firstly stalk and then sight fish them in much the same way as you'd fish in a chalkstream! As they move location again, there's moreaction behind the boat with a variety of species landed including some wonderful Giant Trevally. Back on another flat, this time they find Bonefish and other reef species. This is an excellent film that gives a real insight into the terrific fishing available in the Indian Ocean

Fishing shows on how, what, when to fish for different species
If you can't get out to fish the next best thing is to watch others have all the fun!
