The weather has turned over the last week, we now have strong wind warnings out for the whole of the Fiji Islands, thankfully we managed to get in another couple of charters before it changed.

It was a sad day on Tuesday when we heard of the sinking of the MV Suilvan in Suva with a cargo of Tuna from the factory in Levuka, thankfully all on board her were rescued.

MV Suilven use to operate as a passenger vessel bringing passengers & cargo from Suva to Savusavu & Taveuni. She will be missed.

This week end sees Koro Sun Resort holding a Music Festival with musicians from all over Fiji, it was a lovely surprise yesterday when they preformed at the local Market.

One of our clients has promised to send me photos of their catch so until I receive them will post what I do have.

Unfortunately I didn't manage to get the pictures of the Yellowfin that were caught also.

Yellowfin Tuna

We have had a few more charters since my last blog.

The first 2 charters we caught some good Yellow fin tuna & lost some good ones also, over the last few charters some of our good lures have gone to big fish, have now got to get online to order more lures.

Garry was someone we had taken out 2 years ago, he didn't catch as many Yellow fin as last time, but hope he still enjoyed the day, mind you we did lose a couple of big fish. 

The big Yellow fin have finally come back in, so hope the long liners keep away so we can get in some good fishing.

The last charter we went out on was more choppy then the last couple, but the people were happy to give it a try so off we went.

We had a big bull Mahimahi right to the boat before it shook its head & threw the lure, that was a shame as it would have been good for dinner.

We landed a barracuda, small Yellow fin & a good size Skip jack tuna, also hooked a blue Marlin, but were only able to play it for a few minutes before it threw the hook, fortunately we saw it jump before throwing the hook so at least they got to see it!

20 Years In Savusavu

Today we celebrate 20 years of operation in the little town of Savusavu.

When we first arrived into Savusavu it really was the Hidden Paradise, there were only a few yachts (could count them on one hand) in the harbour, & we were the only Sport fishing boat around, you knew all the ex pats by name, as there were also just a few of them at that time.
Today there are so many from all over the world that have made Savusavu their home, it is hard to get to know them.

For 10 years we transferred tourist to Moodys Namana Resort & to Dere Bay Resort on Koro Island . Mind you Dere Bay wasn't built then.
Game fishing or Sport fishing was done on days we didn't have a transfer.
We still go to Namena & Koro but only when the Resort boats aren't able to do the transfer.

Over the 20 years we have taken a lot of people from all over the world out fishing & have made a few very good friends.

Not sure how much longer we will be able to operate as it is getting harder to keep a hand on things with all the new regulations that are falling into place.

It has been a lot of fun & we both don't regret bringing Searov over from New Zealand to start our business here.


These are some of the photos we have taken over the years in Savusavu.
