The Fishing Trip
During this adventure you’ll fish a variety of reef systems, underwater sea mounts and remote volcanic islands with steep cliff faces not only offering superb fishing but spectacular scenery. Sports anglers can target a variety of species including GT’s, dogtooth, yellowfin tuna, wahoo & red bass on casting and jigging gear. The big EdgeWater centre console is perfect for 4 anglers casting, jigging and offshore bluewater sport fishing. It’s not all about heavy tackle as there are plenty of light tackle options using small jigs, poppers and soft plastics around offshore FAD’s, shallow reefs, flats, islands and drop offs.
Fishing the deep waters with Vanuatu’s volcanic islands and seamounts as a backdrop always has a very Jurassic feel to it. Time can be spent jigging drop offs, FAD’s and deep reefs, popper casting for big GT’s, doggies and red bass, plus working island fringes & sending big baits out for wahoo or dogtooth. We’re located on the secluded north west coast of Efate, our lodge in Vanuatu is unique in that anglers can cover such a variety of fishing techniques in such close proximity from base. Traditionally a big game fish destination this is now a serious GT popping adventure, we know there is so much more on offer to sports anglers, and plenty of surprises in store…

- Sportfishing enthusiasts wanting to fish Vanuatu with like minded anglers.
- Anglers unable to charter the whole boat who wish to experience the simplicity of a scheduled charter.
