Morning Lost To Sharks In Savusavu

Since my last entry we have had 2 cruise ships visiting Savusavu.
These ones didn't carry as many passengers as the Pacific Dawn & Pacific Sun, but at least they brought trade to the town.

The first one MV Bremmer had just over 130 passengers most of them being German.
The second Paul Gauguin had sailed in from Tahiti on her way to other Fiji ports, where she unloads her passengers at Lautoka, takes on new passengers, then will call back into Savusavu on Thursday on her way back to Boro Bora. She carried just over 300 passengers.

Thankfully the weather has been fine for the visits, here's hoping for the same tomorrow, when Pacific Dawn calls in for her last tip to Savusavu for a long while.

Reports from friends said Yellowfin Tuna had arrived on the sea mount, so Terry & I went to give Searov a run after doing a service.
On arriving at the mount we had a triple hook up, Terry being the only one on the deck tried to reel in the Yellowfin as fast as he could, as we saw the sharks around, needless to say he couldn't bring them in quick enough so lost all 3 fish, lures & line.

Next try was the same, so we quickly left to find somewhere without sharks.
Again we had a hook up & again a Shark, this time it took about 15 mins to bring him to the boat, at the boat Terry cut the line as he was too big to have around, we lost another lure, so it was time to head home.
