    Deep sea fishing in April

    Does anyone know if the seas are rough for deep sea fishing off Phuket in April? Is the fishing any good around that time?

    Fishing is never great near Phuket but the seas are usually still good in April. Towards the end can be riskier if it`s an early start to the rainy season.

    So the answer is yes it`s possible and if the weather is ok you can book something while you`re there.

    I've been out trawling in April, but not deep sea/bottom fishing. Ocean was gentle on the day, but was a bit variable over the week, yet all days were fishable, not that we caught much. Spent the day searching for boiling water, birds diving, etc. Trawled through identified spots around a dozen times over the day, but didn't hook big fish.

    Ok cool. Sounds like I might give it a go. Hopefully the early weather doesn't set in. I love fishing but my brother in law who is coming with us said he gets sea sick relatively easy.

    There are so many longboats and trawlers fishing the Andaman coast the charter fishing is so-so on day charters.
    Overnight charters would be a better result but not for the B.I.L.
    Trolling is often a tedious way to fish here compared to say west coast of OZ.
