Pro NBA basketballer, Jared Jeffries recently returned to fish Vanuatu with Ocean Blue. Jared had a great trip popping and jigging with us up in the islands June 2012, and this time he returned with a film crew to capture all the action. When not playing in the NBA, fishing the world is Jared’s passion & he’s now taken it to the next level, starring in his new extreme fishing tv show during his off season – so this trip has been 12 months of anticipation.
Guide Andrea Traverso said they caught loads of dogtooth & GT’s in the 20kg bracket which didn’t even qualify for a photo. The biggest doggie landed was in excess of 65kg on a popper. (Jared stands at 6’11 so tends to shrink fish in photo’s!) Poppers & stick baits both did damage, with the quality West Coast poppers & ASWB series getting the big thumbs up from JJ. It wasn’t all glory however, they got decisively beaten, reefed, sharked & spooled. Every session had epic moments, we can’t wait to see the new show “Modern Fishing with Jared jeffries” to be aired in the US early 2014.
Jared rated the total Ocean Blue experience in his top 3 adventures anywhere in the world.
For anglers wanting to do this same frontier expedition to fish this pretty wild country with us, we only have 4 spots left on this October 2013 exploratory expedition. This is a trip of a life time, great value and definitely one not to miss.
