Sail at the Channel Markers

Mid month we experienced stronger than normal winds for this time of the year however the fishing has been good. Sail fish have been on the bite consistently close in and providing great action. Regular Shogun angler Paul Mason out of California arrived with his son and grandson for three days of fishing. Grandson Gordon had a sail tagged first up at the channel markers, about 4 min from the dock.

His farther Barry achieved a second at Devils Point a further 20 min out. A great start to the day.
The annual 3-Species Comp was run on the 20th with 5 boats participating and local angler Adrian competing in his kayak who ventured out in Havannah Harbor – this is probably a first for any comp here. I can’t understand why not more people kayak fish in Vanuatu. Unfortunately fishing was very lean, at least on the northern side of Efate. 3 boats weighed in fish however non reached the 1/3 line class weight.
Nevertheless Frieda scored a Women’s Doggy record on 10kg – well done Frieda.

Good luck at the weigh in’s
