Nothing like a chance to step away from everyday life and reconnect with the people closest to you; a time to relax, to be the real you, or indeed to be whoever you want to be. And once ticked from the bucket list, holidays can leave you with a life long happy memories for all to reflect upon over & over again. We recently had the pleasure in welcoming the Van Weeran family to Trees and Fishes for a 7 nights, 4 1/2 days Bluewater fishing adventure. Over the edge with Ocean Blue guide, Andrea Traverso saw father & sons land a bucket load of species, experience new challenges and sharing ample of happiness together.

“We had a great time, thank you to all.”

Over the last few weeks the fishing has been really hot. With plenty of big wahoo’s landed which became annoying at times for anglers as they interfered when chasing other species (a good problem to have I guess). Sailfish have also been plenty full with fish raised on poppers, trolling ballyhoo and live baiting. Other species included GTs and doggies on minnows and livebait. Some of the highlights have been solid yellowfin landed on popper along with mahi mahi fever around our FAD’s. These red hot peaks should continue over the next few months.

“Well done to all involved. Totally awesome adventure. Had a ball and will be back!”

With the water temperature cooling down Anglers have been funding some consistent bites on topwater and trolling over the past weeks. Anglers have been finding some good success and the hot spots around our FAD’s and along our coastlines where the waters are looking pretty clear with some fiesty strikes. With anglers working the poppers, stick baits, live baits and rapala, some of the catches included yellowfin (25-65kg+), wahoo (10-18kg), mahi mahi, blue marlin (280kg+) and GT’s. Anglers also reported a lot of by catches such as humber jacks, job fish and coral trout (28kg). below are some of the Anglers catches.

“Awesome experience all round in every aspects. Perfect location with fish right at your doorstep. Everything about this place is perfect. Had a great time and outstanding professional service from all”

The last few weeks have seen some hot Blue marlin fishing with boats raising anything from 1 to 10 marlin a day, a good part of that on some of our newly deployed FADs.

Same time last year it was the beginning of 2 full months of crazy yellowfin fishing and that this year has shown to be the same. The Wahoo and Mahi Mahi have arrived early, due to sudden water temperature drop, with the guides targeting these species on topwater around our FADS.

Check out below latest anglers catches!

“Winter through to Spring is looking like a promising season with plenty of fish to be targeted. So see you soon in Vanuatu.”

When fishing Vanuatu It is not unusual to catch yellowfin tuna, wahoo, mahi mahi, trouts, job fish, blue marlin,GT’s, dogtooth and some other species on a single trip. This is possibly the easiest time of year to get into fast action fishing around our anglers lodge. Rarely does a day go by where we don’t catch at least a half-dozen species. Anglers will continue to enjoy the “Hot” action over the next few months. Below are some of the catches from our most recent guests.

“Thanks again for our amazing stay at Trees and Fishes recently. All your staff are a credit to you, everything was faultless.”

Reward, Motive, Excite your team. We had the pleasure in welcoming the team from Donaldson Australia to fish with us recently. Nothing like fishing together, enjoying meals together, and experiencing adventures together. Catches included Yellowfin, Big eye yellowfin, blue marlin, mahi mahi, wahoo and deep down for some poulet fish.

“All of the guys thoroughly enjoyed themselves and want to do it again, as do I.
We are sincerely grateful to your staff, particularly Janine, for making our stay very memorable. The fishing with Andrea and Stephen just made it that much better.
Hope we can do it again one day soon.”

We had the privilege in hosting the Quinn & Greene family over the last few weeks. These anglers spent a week fishing Vanuatu from our anglers lodge, Trees and Fishes.

Each morning started off at 730am with anglers getting their cooked breakfast, coffee fix and double checking their gear for the day.

With anglers all onboard, the guides headed straight out to sea to explore our FAD’s where it often holds everything from yellowfin tuna, wahoo, bonito mahi mahi to marlin.

Excited at the sight of busting bait on the surface anglers started to cast poppers on the outside edges of these bait balls looking for the targeted species, yellowfin tuna. This was a non stop action for part of the days.

Ample of yellowfin tuna ranging from 15kg to 60kg broke the surface with the biggest fish of the week weighed in at 65kg landed on PE8. Other species landed included marlin, sailfish, GT and mahi mahi.

I am sure catching tuna on topwater will be one of the many memories these anglers will never forget!

“Amazing food, excellent staff. FAD are fun.”

Sam Greene – Brisbane, Australia

Here in Vanuatu you never have far to go to catch fish. Whether staying at our Trees and Fishes Angler’s Lodge or taking on one of our live on board expeditions there are no long runs to the grounds

Seasoned angler Anthony Dimech and a group of mates recently found that out when on a exploratory live on board trip. With unseasonable northwest winds limiting the accessible locations, the guys were limited to fishing the protected south east corner of the islands.

While this was not the plan it didn’t stop the fish from nailing the poppers and jigs. You don’t always have to travel far to experience some of the best fishing grounds in the Pacific. Targeting large GTs and Dogtooth Tuna using modern high tech heavy spin tackle, armed with state of the art poppers and jigs, the guys were able to land some nice fish. Not to mention the many that won their freedom in anticipation for next years return battle.

“Fabulous, with many fish left behind for next time.”
