Vanuatu Charter Game Fishing | Crusoe Fishing Adventures


    Nevagivup has added another record this time for Samantha Vale fishing with 10Kg Tippet fly fishing. The aim was to target Wahoo for the girls but instead we ended up with a Sail. This was Sam’s first Sailfish and the catch was a great achievement for her weighing in at 42Kg. The tease and fight was nothing but text book with everything going to plan. With Russ and Richard on the gaffs and Captain Charles Wheeler at the helm, this was a day to be remembered by all on board. Well done Sam!  

    Sunday the 22nd of February 2009 saw five vessels take the ladies out  to fish the waters of Port Vila. The weather gods had looked down on us once again and the ladies had a great day out on the water with the odd glass of champagne being consumed. Nevagivup skippered by Captain Charles Wheeler, with anglers Michelle Temminck and Samantha Vale and deck hands Russ Housby and Richard Moruk, took out the tournament with two Mahi Mahi to Sam and adding another 10Kg record to Nevagivup’s tally. We also lost two Blue Marlin, with the hard luck story of the tournament going to Michelle after a 1 1/2 hour fight with a 500pd Blue Marlin on 30pd line. Due to some minor problems on the boat, we had to cut the fish off. All in all, it was a wonderful day out on the water and some of the ladies got amoungst the action.

    January 2009 saw Horizon head up to Santo for a two week charter on Ratu Island, one of Santo’s newest resorts. After a hectic Christmas period, Michelle, Charles and Paul decided to bring Horizon home after her charter with Charlie and James and take a short fishing break. The weather was superb and allowed us to fish off Santo for the first day mooring at Bokissa Island that night. This day Paul tagged and released his first Blue Marlin. The second day saw us head South to fish the rich waters off Malakula. We encoutered some rather large Yellowfin Tuna and Charles tipped the scales with a nice fin around the 70kg mark. We anchored at Port Sandwich at Malakula which is a large river with amazing scenary. Wednesday morning was an early start to encounter some large Dogtooth Tuna at the southern end of Malakula. Michelle encoutered some large doggies only to pull the hooks. We landed two nice doggies around the 20kg mark and landed a couple of Wahoo as well. We then trolled down to Cooks Reef and anchored off Emae Island for the night. Thursday was also an early start as we had to make the passage between the islands where the currents meet. Here we encoutered some nice blue marlin as well with Michelle tagging a Blue around the 100kg mark and Paul tagging another blue around the 200kg mark. We also raised another two for the day and landed a couple of nice Mahi Mahi ...

    ‘Congrats to Crusoe Fishing – Vanuatu. We recently had a terrific few days fishing: their operation was most professional and their boats and gear were excellent and in top order. Nothing was too much trouble, especially to work around the weather to suit our needs and to get some great fishing in. Michelle and Charles of Crusoe Fishing were great hosts and worked hard to make it the best time for all. We can thoroughly recommend Crusoe Fishing. Paul & Petah.’
