We had the pleasure in hosting To Trees and Fishes, Doug & Leanne Read to fish Vanuatu on our couples sports fishing adventure.
Fishing with experienced guide Stephen Moderan, each day combined a variety of species being targeted. Having access to easy logistics from our anglers lodge Stephen made sure their trip was a success.
Couples that fish together stay together – 17th–26th October 2016
With the Yellowfin being plentiful around our FAD’s (fish aggregated device), Doug & Leanne wanted nothing more then to catch as many fish as they could on topwater. New to the offshore topwater, our guides often refer there anglers to the common ‘Yo Yo ‘ trick has the preferred retrieving method for topwater fishing. It is accomplished by constant rhythmic twitches of your rod tip, causing the popper to dart back and forth across the surface.
Nothing beats the adrenaline pumping like a big yellowfin chasing down a popper. When that fish comes out of nowhere, smashes that popper and makes a big wake on the surface, even most experienced anglers get that same feeling of excitement with each strikes. Some of the highlights included Leanne’s 40kg Yellowfin, Doug’s bull Mahi Mahi, GT and solid Sailfish. Great effort guys!
In addition, our nightly canapes, cold refreshments, wellness services, unique setting and tete a tete dinner along our waters edge were some of Doug’s and Leanne’s island time experience with us.
