Vanuatu Fishing Charter: 4 hours of red hot marlin action

Vanuatu Fishing Charter

A huge product in our business is a 4 hour Vanuatu Fishing Charter. A lot of these are shared charters and some solo’s. The biggest difficulty is getting peoples expectations in line with reality. Four hours is not a long time to go game fishing and sometimes guests want to do some reef fishing as well so that leaves even less time to catch a marlin or a fish of a lifetime for that matter. Every now and then someone will do a four hour fishing charter and have a blinder and this was the case with Ed. Ed wasn’t sure about even doing a charter then his wife said he was mad not to, “your in Vanuatu, why not go out and have a go”

Ed decided to book a 4 hour charter. Conditions were dead calm so we headed south toward the Pango F.A.D. We had a marlin bite on the way out but it didn’t hook up. We were at the F.A.D and were clearing the gear to do some jigging and a blue marlin kame screaming in and ate the shotgun lure only meters from the boat. With a bit of free spooling and then on with the drag the fish was on. As Ed started fighting the fish a second one was jumping around a little further out.Ed soone had the fish to the boat for a release. We started heading back home and at about the half way mark another 2 blue marlin jumped on. This time we lost one, a fairly big one at that and Ed soon had the smaller one to the boat. We ended up seeing 5 had 3 on and caught 2. Not a bad 4 hour charter however it doesn’t happen all the time.

Vanuatu Fishing Holidays in Epi

Vanuatu Fishing Holidays

Glenn, Dom and Jason contacted me some time ago about a Vanuatu Fishing holidays. We decided to go the Epi Island option. The fishing for the first day and a half was slow however it got going once we got onto the fish at Epi on an underwater volcano. This is a sometimes active volcano with discoloring of the water happening sometime and sometime a sulfasmell in the area but the couple of days we fished it  it wasn’t active, just full up with fish. The boys had a great time getting amongst the yello9w fin, wahoo and a couple of good sized G.T’s.

The Fishing Family

Game fishing in Vanuatu can certainly be a family affair. Brian, Lindy, Brian Jnr and Tim are back again to Vanuatu for the third time and have just done another days fishing with us. We had a great day on the mahi -mahi and we had a couple of marlin on playing with our skip bait’s however the wouldn’t eat them (Too well fed)
The conditions were superb and great deal of fun was had by all. Everyone caught at least one fish. They will back later in the week to do some Scuba diving with us.

Craig has just compled his third trip

Craig Bellgrove and his mates came in to fish Vanuatu for the third time. They took the Kakoola option this trip and caught heaps. Day one we raised three marlin and tagged two. We also picked up a mahi-mahi at the Mosso Fad  that made the dinner table that evening.

Day two had us off to the Eastern Seamound for a blinder. On arrival we were greeted by multiple strikes of yellowfin. The jigging proved just a little slow except for the first drop when Steve caught his first dogtooth at 25kg. We had a lot of fun catching wahoo on jigs close to the surface which was a first for the boys. We spent 3 hour fishing the area and headed home when we were unable to fit any more fish in the storage areas in the boat.

Day three the team opted to only do 1/2 a day as the boys had some business to conduct so we spent a bit of time a Nguna Island with no result. The score for the day was 1 x 20kg wahoo in Undine Bay.

Craig finally caught a dogtooth that he has been chasing for some time on day 4 at Monument Rock near Mataso Island however there wasn’t much else happening there. The Mataso Seamount turned up a few more yellowfin and a wahoo.

Day 5 we headed back to the Eastern Seamound again hoping to repeat the day earlier in the trip in less than favorable conditions. On arrival we found a few birds moving around but we couldn’t get a bite. After getting beaten up in the conditions for some time we decided to shorten the day and hear home. Just to ad insult to injury we had a marlin jump on and off on the way back to Kakoola.

Day six was head home day so we gave the Mosso F.A.D a good work out and caught a heap of good mah-mahi then headed further south. As the day unfolded we picked up another couple of good size mahi-mahi with one at 17kg for Steve. There was plenty of birds working however they were just following the schools of skipjack that were passing through. We picked up a couple around the 10kg mark. A good sized rainbow runner gumped on at Pango Seamound to round out our day and complete the trip. I spit of a couple of rough day the fishing once again in Vanuatu proved to be very good.

The Ultimate Shared Charter

When Glenn Proebsh booked in for a shared 8 hour charter I’m sure he had no idea of how lucky he would be. About 6 minuites into his first stint on the rod on his very first game fishing charter he hooked up on a nice blue marlin. Forty Minutes later it was tagged and released and we had one very happy angler.
