We arrived in Vanuatu with Cyclones about to hit Fiji, Australia and one that could have come our way as well…expecting poor weather and not so much fishing, we packed a few “bored” games in case.
Our arrival and first impression of Trees and Fishes was that it definately was not a fishing shack on the beach, it had more class than the 4 fishos that were about to storm its walls. Staff were excellent from the get go, everything just flowed and offered us a kick back and relax vibe, always nice after a long year at work. The food was sensational, every meal a challenge to finish but so good that you felt you just needed that one extra bite, when done the next course would arrive!
The Fishing….well the fishing…. dont think there are to many places in the world you can sight cast to Dogtooth Tuna, and not small ones either! We had a jigging session that saw us go drop for drop from 9am till we said lines up at 15h00 before a GT afrernoon session…yes we didnt land them all and yes a few met the tax man on the way up but we punished our gear with the biggest round 50kilo and average fish round the 8kilo mark…certainly my best experience dogtooth fishing. All that and it was day 1! we did the same for 6 straight days, Andrea the skipper was great, he worked hard to get us good fish, from chasing Doggies to GT we could not fault his constant ability to put us on fish with lures that worked!
I have travelled to many far off places in search of good fishing, this was the best yet. The accomodation and food compliments the fishing, the 32 foot edgewater is in its own class, the hospitality second to none I felt all this took our Trip from being the usual charter to a proffesional sports fishing adventure, worthy of top fishos.
Thanks guys, our team are already plotting our next assault….!
We look forward to getting back to the shores and hospitality of Vanuatu!
PS i have ticked that the “pool” was excellent, although no pool the swimming in crystal clear water right in front of your cabin is far better than any pool!
