Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone.

It was a quiet Christmas in the Hidden Paradise. most enjoyed the day with family

I guess a lot of people cooked the Christmas meal in a Lovo, this is the most popular way of preparing the food in the Islands.

We are all keeping a eye on the weather as a depression is hovering around just north west of us, we should know in a day or so if it will develop into anything.

Haven't been out fishing the last week though have heard of a very nice Yellowfin  Tuna being caught, Terry managed to get a look at it & said its should have weighed in over 70kgs?

Well that is all the news from this end of the world.

Be safe

Returning From Koro Island

We have had a few charters over the last couple of week, not the usual fishing charters, but transferring guest to Namena Island Resort, & taking Vodafone technicians to do repairs on the tower located on Koro island.

After dropping off the guests at Namena Island, we were able to fish on the way home, we caught a couple of yellowfin for lunch then on Saturday we were fortunate to catch a very nice Mahimahi.

It weigh in just over 12kg, the first time Terry tried to gaff it it got off, but fortunately it was still on the line so he was able to get it into the boat on the second attempt.

We were late coming home from the Koro trip so weren't able to fish,  the truck they hired had a problem, so had a very long drive back from the tower.

Anyway we had a beautiful calm trip back & saw a rainbow just as we got close to the lighthouse.
