Trip to Koro Island

It was a beautiful morning as we left the Copra Shed Marina dock for Koro Island, with our passengers.

The seas looked calm as we approached the lighthouse, so it was going to be a lovely trip across.

On the way over I saw a few schools of fish working, but we couldn't stop as there had to be work done on Koro.

We arrived at Dere Bay just after 8.30, the men leaving to do the work on the Vodafone Tower.

Terry & I spend most of the time waiting in the cool of the bure, that Dere Bay have on their dock. It is a lovely spot on a day like this, as it got fairly hot waiting on Searov, as the day progressed.

It took longer then expected for the work to be done, so we didn't leave for the return trip until 2.00.
On the way across we had said if we saw fish working, we would try for a fish. but didn't have too much time to waste.

About half way across , I saw a big workup of birds & fish, so the lines were put out, a little later we had a double hook up, lost both, the men hadn't used a rod before, so Terry had to show them how to work it.

Thankfully, another double strike, this time we got both in, skippys. at least they have something for dinner.

We had another couple of strikes, but didn't land them so pulled everything in & headed for home, reaching Savusavu just before 5.00.

This has been a long day, just need a shower & a early night.
