(Continued from Part 1 Topwater Report)

Taking full advantage of great conditions and glassy seas, Andrea Traverso (Ocean Blue guide) suggested exploring a bit further afield, hitting some remote seamounts for doggies. Daniel Risley, Greg Goess and Atha Tolios had never experience anything like this before. Jigging in 200 metres of water for big doggies is hard work but so rewarding when that trophy fish is hooked. The trio got smoked on a few big fish and landed 1/2 dozen doggies with the biggest weighing 30kg and a nice 10kg model on micro jig. By the afternoon all the guys could think of when they reached Trees and Fishes was to have a few cold Tuskers, a cool swim and gourmet dinner.

During this trip the guys also fished around the FAD’s chasing big yellowfin on popper and landing dollies on skirts, topwater and bait as well as target jigging for jelly bean yellowfin and skipjacks on micro jigs.

This GT and Dogtooth Sportfishing adventure for 3 best mates, Daniel Risley, Greg Goess and Atha Tolios. Our 3 enthusiastic anglers were introduced to Andrea Traverso’s world of popping very quickly. With a ‘no mercy and never give up attitude’ it was game-on for Daniel, Greg and Atha. Fishing 3 anglers on the boat meant that the guys maximised casting from the bow and the back platform each session..

There’s plenty of big tough fish that live in Vanuatu’s clear blue water so stay tuned for the trio’s “beast” encounter with heavy metal jigging in our next trip report.

Despite Andrea putting them on to plenty of opportunities on day 1, casting poppers and stickbaits over the many shallow coral reefs, islands, drop-offs and passages, the trio struggled to convert all the strikes & hookups into fish on the deck, with only 1 GT out of 8 landed. No one said GT fishing is a walk in the park….
After their learning curve on the 1st day, they continued fresh on day 2, cast after cast honing their technique and with persistence and positive attitudes closed the day with a tally of 4 GT’s landed out of 12.

So out of a few topwater sessions with Ocean Blue guide Andrea Traverso, the guys earned their stripes, with a ton of new experience, honing techniques and raising some excellent fish and landing some beauties also. Congrats all round!!

Some of the other catches included a nice sailfish plus some assortment of by-catch including some big barracudas, coral trout on popper, big rainbow runner, job fish and whilst trolling offshore a couple of solid wahoo.

Congratulations to Craig & Milton Licciardo on an exceptional week of sport fishing. Craig & Milton fished with Ocean Blue guide Stefan Moderan staying 5 nights at Trees and Fishes private retreat. Lady luck surely was on their side this week with perfect weather conditions which allowed the boys to go and fish further afield on our 17ft Edgewater. The catches included Blue Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Sailfish and Yellowfin Tuna on popper. Great effort guys.
