Siargao Fishing Tour Packages
Siargao Island, the sports fishing capital of the Philippines. Year-round fishing around Siargao includes jack and giant trevally, weighting as much as 40 to 50 kilos. Around the payaos (artificial fish shelters) dwell small yellow fin tuna (two to five kilos), skipjack tuna, durado, and, with luck, marlin. Night fishing around payaos can net about 100 kilos of squid, depending on skill.
March to May is big-game fishing season for sailfish, for which Siargao is particularly famous. Wahoo (tangigue) and yellow fin tuna are also found during this time. Barracudas are found closer to shore. Night fishing is best from May to November, where yellow fin tuna weighting between 35 to 70 kilos can be found. Trolling for durado (also known as dolphin fish and mahi-mahi) is possible from August to November.
