New Years Eve 2014

Terry & I would like to wish you all a Happy New Year, & thanks to all our customers over the years, who have given us a lot of happy memories.

We ended the year with a charter this morning, unfortunately  it didn't turn out to be a very memorial one.

The weather wasn't the best when we left this morning, it had been gusting strongly all night so we knew it was going to be rough.

We worked out way slowly to the mount but nothing was around, we did come across birds but it was only small fish that were there & being small the hooks kept putting out of the soft mouths.

Fortunatly we did manage to hook a Mahimahi but this wasn't one of the bigger ones we  have caught recently, still at least they have dinner.

                                                    Some of the memories of 2014

May you all have a enjoyable New Year's Eve & all the best for 2015.

Merry Christmas

I am a little late wishing everyone a Merry Christmas, hope you all had a wonderful day.

The weather has finally come right so managed to do a couple of fishing trips

Trif caught a nice Mahimahi on the day we went out, there was still a big roll out pass the lighthouse so didn't stay long out there, we came back in & spent a hour or more swimming at split rock, Georgia had fun feeding the little fish.

Yesterday we had a afternoon fish, the roll was still there & some times fairly big ones.

The family we had on board caught 2 nice Mahimahi & on the way home had a double strike which ended up being Yellowfin Tuna, the fist one on, reeled out a long way, but as it got to the boat we could only see the head, rest was taken by a shark,
Thankfully  the other Yellowfin was whole when we got it into the boat!

We were so lucky to get the Yellowfin as I had gone through a few schools of them but they just wouldn't take anything, they were just jumping out of the water having fun.

On the way back up the harbour we came across dolphins that followed the boat for about 5 mins giving us a great sight to end the day on.

Savusavu Wahoo

We haven't had very favourable weather over the last few week to get out to fish.

A week Friday we thought we would give it a try as the guest was departing on Saturday so really wanted to get out.

We left the dock about 10am as it seemed to have calmed down a little, got to the entrance & tried to head out yonder!  that was a mistake so we came back inside.

Fortunately for us about a hour into our sweeps out from the lighthouse we had a strike, we ended up with a nice sized Wahoo, (weighed in at 18.5kg) & boy we were lucky as the hook on the rapala was only just holding into the fish.

Nothing much was around so headed in early as the fish was too big to have the lid down to keep it cold, & we didn't want it too spoil.

This week we managed to get out pass the lighthouse, nothing much was working when we got to the mount so started to look for birds.  We ended up with 3 yellowfin Tuna, but covered a lot of miles, it was still pretty rough so headed back in, at least they have dinner.
