Their Third Trip

New Zealanders Peter Wise, Mike Rolo, Geoff Ward and new team member Dave Carville made their third trip to Vanuatu on the 11th on May. In previous years the boys have stayed in our accommodation at Nautilus and fished out of Port Vila each day with great results.
This year they decided to do the Epi Island live ashore option at Lamen Bay and had a great time. Day one was slightly slower than expected however there was still plenty of sashimi and fish for the B.B.Q with the random wahoo and mahi-mahi action. Day two Mike nails a dogtooth at De Chauliac Bank that made his day. Dave was a bit disappointed when a blue marlin dropped off later in the afternoon.
Day three started in a much better tone with a double hook–up on sails within 10 minutes of lines in the water. Dave’s was on first and then falling off to add insult to injury from the previous day. Geoff managed to get his alongside the boat for a nice tag shot however the fish was finally boated as it was not in fit enough condition to be released due to an injury. The rest of the day saw a flurry of wahoo activity around Lapevi Volcano and Palma Island. The day was rounder out with some doggy fishing on the end of Lamen Island where Pete captured himself a nice green job fish that made its way to the dinner table that night.
