Alan Morrison Mothership Trip: gt fish

The Mothership Trip we’ll be Repeating Again & Again!

Alan Morrison is a passionate sports angler who’s fishes remote corners of the globe each year. His request to us was to put together a superb week’s fishing for 2 couples, using the mothership to travel further afield & provide that unique experience that only a quality live on board expedition can deliver.

That was what he told the girls anyway, as the real reason for the guys was to simply get their arms stretched each day on countless dogtooth tuna, GT’s and all other Vanuatu’s species encountered. The group was Alan Morrison, his wife Joanna, and good friends Robert Barraclough & partner Shikin Asari. Planning the itinerary & island to visit, Ocean Blue guide Andrea Traverso quickly recommended the Maskelyne islands, south Malekula. And so the itinerary took shape, a few days were also added at Trees & Fishes post trip, to allow sea legs to settle.

We had an awesome trip. It has truly spoilt us in terms of the luxury of the yacht, quality of the food. Hospitality on Rendezvous was fantastic, the crew, Andrea and Tony on the Edgewater, all of them were not only working to make our trip great, but were great company to spend time with. The Fishing: We however would rate it as some of the best fishing we have had, with opportunities through the days at just about every location we went to. We hooked and lost trophies, landed fish up to around 40kgs, both GTs and doggies on topwater. We also did some light tackle stuff, landing dogtooth to 20kg on PE4. My wife, in an attempt to land some bluefins, hooked a 15-20 kgs GT in the process. Our return to Trees and Fishes, was welcomed as after nearly 6 days of hard slog we ached in muscles we hadn’t known we had. The service on the yacht was brilliant, but the resort took it up a notch. Angele and her team were extraordinary…. So, next year, similar time frame, fly in jump on board and hit the north somewhere… ideally somewhere similar, but different – if you get my drift!
