Hollywood movie producer Paul Mason and his some Barry have been at it again. We were out for a days fishing yesterday. Fishing in Vanuatu has been high on Paul’s list of destination for the last 4 years. Yesterday we missed the hot bite due to getting away a little late and it was almost lunch time before we saw our first fish. A blue marlin had 3 shots at climbing onto the shotgun but no hookup was achieved.
We didn’t see another fish until 4pm with another blue at about 70kg coming up on the short corner and peeling off at 200mph. Fifteen minutes into the battle Barry had the fish up by the boat where it received a tag and was sent on its way.
We are off on Monday for and overnighter with Paul and Barry ” I dont think Helga is coming this time” so stay tuned.
Paul has now been fishing with me for 4 years now and has been a regular competitor in the Vanuatu Marlin Classic, and the Port Vila Game Fishing Club November tournament.
