New Caledonia’s Trophy GTs (Part 1)
Article by Grant Dixon, published in New Zealand Fishing News

Prior to my first New Caledonia experience targeting their trophy giant trevally with poppers, I never realised just how technical this form of fishing could be. In the past I had been content to rip out the cast and then bring the lure back to the boat with a series of jerks, interspersed with some furious winding. The process would be repeated until either a fish was raised or it all became far too taxing on ageing muscles. However, after fishing with Etienne Picquel, operator of Blue Caledonie Fishing Trips, I now know very differently. In addition to having a comprehensive knowledge of the grounds and the target species, Etienne is also a patient teacher who’s prepared to pass on what he knows to those prepared to listen. And it pays to listen closely. More here

Don’t take our word for it

Fantastic trip with 5 star, fishing, crew, accommodation and meals. An excellent way to kick off one of the “bucket list” items. Sensational way to spend a week. We will definitely return.
