Fishing Boats, Tackle and Crew

LuresOur fishing boat, “Vagabond” is a 7.5m Cobra built in 2008 in New Zealand and Fiji. “Vagabond” is ideal for fishing the local waters. She is powered by twin 115hp Mercury 4 stroke outboards. She is configured as a ‘walkaround’ with a casting deck in front of the cabin. She has proven to be excellent for both trolling and casting/popper fishing. All safety gear is carried on board—VHF radio, First Aid Kit, Flares etc. She is equipped with a GPS/Chartplotter.

Tackle on board ranges from light spinning gear through to 15kg (30lb) and 24kg (50lb) trolling outfits. All rods and reels are top class, from manufacturers such as Penn, Shimano and Daiwa. A wide range of minnows (Rapalas and Halcos) and skirted lures are carried. Successful techniques include trolling and casting lures, but we also specialize in trolling dead baits.

Giant TrevallyYour fishing guides are local Fijians from the neighbouring island of Yanuya. They have a wealth of experience of the local waters and are keen fishermen themselves.
