Of all the places around the world I have been fortunate to wet a line, Papua New Guinea is high on my return list. Jason Yip of does a fantastic job, organizing anglers into some of the remotest areas on earth. In Papaua New Guinea you will go into hand to hand battle with the toughest freshwater fish on earth, the New Guinea Black Bass. The brutes can reach weights exceeding 50lbs if your lucky to land one. Monster barramundi are a side catch and they get huge, over 70lbs. Papua New Guinea is located near Australia. Often anglers fly into Brisbane then onto Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea where Jason's staff will meet you. You then will venture into the remote jungle by 4 wheel drive vechicles to camps Jason has gained permit rights. Make sure to bring along fishing equipment which MIGHT be able to handle these monsters. I recommend Daiwa Lexa 400 reels, short stout tuna jigging rods, 100 to 200 braided line, 200 lbs mono leaders, triple coiled Wolverine split rings, and only lures with wire through construction. This setup will enable you to have a fighting chance at landing the PNG bass. While I fished with Jason, I was knocked onto my face when being pulled by a monster exceeding 40lbs! Jason was able to set the IGFA all tackle record while our group was in camp. For one of the best fishing adventures offered on this planet, get in touch with Steve Yatomi of Steve heads groups into PNG yearly fishing with Jason Yip. Jason recently reported that he has a few opening remaining for 2014. Get in now to the "Land That Time Forgot"
