Kenya - GT Popper Trip

For a long time, we had the feeling that Kenya has to offer a very special fishing on GT. During the last group trips in October, we were able to catch GTs over 30 kilo every day while fishing with the Downrigger. Reason enough to take a look at the popping for Giant Trevally. And what shall we say ... It rocked!!! The average sizes of over 20kg where amazing and the heaviest GT weight in over 55kg! We found a true popper paradise in Kenya!


The group tour takes you to the north of Kenya and to the best spots for popping and jigging for GT. You will fish a total of six full days for anything you can catch. A great combination of blue water fish, reef fish and bait & switch fishing for billfish is waiting for you on this unique fishing expedition.

Exemplary itinerary

The group tour starts at your home airport. From there you will fly to Nairobi. After your arrival in Naibobi, you will spend one night in a hotel before flying out the next morning to Lamu. You will picked up in Lamu with our speed boat which will take you to Mikes Camp on a remote island. You will stay in Mikes camp for two nights. After your arrival there is enough time to prepare your fishing equipment for the next days. You will start fishing the next morning.

On the third day fishing you will check-in into a small hotel/guesthouse in Lamu from where you will fish the next four days. After the total of six fishing days in and around Lamu, you will fly back to Nairobi in the early morning. Depending on your international flight connections, you will go straight to the airport or stay another night in NBO before flying back home.

Our Boats

On this group tour you will be guided by fishing legend "Angus Paul" as well as his son "Arran Paul". Angus is one of the best captains in Kenya and his son Arran has raised attention in recent years with great catches. Arran fishes next to Kenya on Cape Verde and other top destinations. The boats you will use are "Neptune" and "Eclare". Three anglers share one boat. Both boats offer plenty of space for popping and are equipped with echosounders, GPS, radio and satellite phones.
