fishing charters

We cater for all experience levels and thrive on the first time fishos. You can do as little or as much as you like on your charter, from relaxing until the fish hits to becoming part of a crew, setting and retrieving gear.

The main way we fish is by trolling or towing hard and soft body lures behind the boat, targeting the pelagic species, especially yellowfin tuna, wahoo, and mahi mahi. We also slow troll soft plastics for yellowfin, and when in season, Apr-Oct, livebait for mahi mahi and yellowfin tuna around the FADs

We either fish around the Fish Attracting Devices (FADs) or on the drop offs, this means the furthest we travel away from the land is around 2 km and we can be fishing within 5 min from leaving the wharf.

CHARTERS AVAILABLE and COST
We offer shared fishing charters as well as private fishing charters, half and full day.

A shared charter you will have other guests on the boat with you. We require a min of two to go out and we take a maximum of four

On a private charter the boat is your own and we can offer you other types of fishing that we can not on a shared charter. This could include spearfishing, casting for GTs, bottom fishing, light tackle fishing close to the reef for the reef species or snorkelling inside and outside the lagoon.

We also offer the mix and match charters, where we fish first thing then go on into the lagoon for snorkelling and island hopping, this can also be half day or full day. The full day includes a BBQ lunch on One Foot Island, (see lagoon tours for details).

Half day private charter $500, 1-3 pers, $600 4 pers, 4-5hrs

Giant Trevally all year round average 20kg up to 50kg. This fishing is dependant on fishermans ability to cast.

Fishing Equipment
All of our fishing equipment is shimano and is kept in great shape and serviced regularly. We are more into sports fishing so mainly fish 15kg around the FADs and 24kg closer to the reef.

We also have specialised GT gear, shimano stella 18000s, 80lb braid with 130lb fluro trace.

As jigging is so specialised we do not carry jigging gear, however if you have your own and would like to go jigging then this is also an option. Main target would be the dogtooth tuna, biggest landed to date is 63kg. Other species likely to be caught are Giant Trevally and coral trout. Also feel free to bring your own GT gear as well, jigging and casting for GTs is a popular charter.

INCLUDED
Hotel transfers, breakfast and or lunch, hot and cold drinks, all fishing and snorkelling equipment. Any fish will be cleaned, filleted and brought to your accommodation or a local restaurant in time for dinner.
