Friday 11th

The strong winds have been blowing for over a week, last Sunday & Monday all flight into Savusavu had to be canceled because of the weather.

All passengers had to fly into Labasa, then find their own transport into Savusavu, this isn't very good for the poor tourist that has never been to Vanua Levu before.
We had one such couple, arriving into Labasa not knowing Savusavu was a hour & half away by taxi, at a cost of $100.

Anyway, we had a booking for a charter, but there wasn't any way that we could go the usual spots, outside the entrance to Savusavu, as the weather forecast was for winds 20 - 25knts.
The family were leaving on Saturday so asked to try inside the harbour.

The winds in the harbour wasn't as strong, so we gave it a shot.
There just didn't seem to be anything around, though we did see a pod of dolphins, doing a display for us for about 5 mins.

Luckily we did manage to pick up a nice size Yellowfin Tuna, but lost a Wahoo, one of the daughters was playing the fish, but not having fished before, she had too much slack on the line, & after the second run, it through the hook.

How that they have flown out, the weather has come good with light winds & calm seas, good fishing weather!
