Phu Quoc squid fishing

Most of the visitors who visit Ngoc Island on holidays and Tet will probably not miss the new joy of “squid fishing at night”. The dry season (November-April) every year is the ideal time for squid fishing.

Squid fishing should not be done during the day or at night with a full moon because the waves of the sea are very strong. 

Things to keep in mind when you want to fish at night

Things to note when participating in this activity

Prepare a squid bait

Many Phu Quoc squid fishing tours will prepare bait for you, but if you want a “bumper” trip to the sea, you should prepare your own quality bait. Choose bait made from Japan for better squid attraction. In addition to the bait you should also prepare a piece of reflective material to attract the attention of the squid.

Beware of seasickness

If you suffer from seasickness or in poor health, absolutely you should not participate in this experience because you will get on a boat and float on the sea for a long night. Make sure that you take the medicine before joining !!!

Bring windbreakers and anti-cold medicine

The night temperature here is quite low and the sea temperature is lower. If you join night squid fishing in Phu Quoc, you need to prepare yourself a thin windbreaker and cold medicine because, when sitting directly outdoors all night, the wind blowing cold from the sea will make you very susceptible to colds.
