  1. NEVAGIVUP HAS HAD A BIRTHDAY & TAGS A BLUE MARLIN ON 10Kg FLY TIPPET!

    Nevagivup has a new teak deck along with new under water gear as well. She is back in fine form once again and is ready to chase the next record! Angler LanceKenningham from Tasmania had two wishes when he chartered Nevagivup. The first one was to catch a Blue Marlin on conventional tackle, which he achieved on the first day along with some nice Mahi Mahi and Yellowfin Tuna. On the second day of fishing, Lance was on a mission to tag a Blue Marlin on 10Kg Fly tippet. Captain Charles Wheeler called the fish and crewman Russ Housby teased the fish right up to the back of the boat for Lance to cast his fly to; the tease and bite was text book and after a 40 minute fight, the tag was in, estimated weight was 50Kg. There have only been two people to catch Blue Marlin on fly in Vanuatu, one being the legendary Tom Evans and now Lance. This would also make Lance around 20 people in the world to catch a Blue Marlin on fly. Congratulations Lance!
  2. NEVAGIVUP TAKES OUT FIRST AND SECOND PLACE IN THE GRAND HOTEL & CASINO VANUATU MARLIN CLASSIC

    The Grand Hotel and Casino Vanuatu Marlin Classic was held from the 21st – 29th of May 2010. Our base this year was from The Grand Hotel which is located right in the heart of Port Vila. We had twelve teams enter the tournament with teams from Australia, New Zealand and New Caledonia as well as the usual local contingents. Friday night was the Calcutta and Briefing and a great night was had by all, no fishing on the Saturday as we all needed a day of recovery before fishing started on the Sunday. Saturday night saw Port Vila cop over 250mm of rain! The rain did not let up on the Sunday and the first day of fishing was very wet to say the least. Apart from no visibility, Skippers had to dodge large logs and trees that had been washed down from the rivers. The water remained dirty for the whole week and added with water temperatures that fluctuated as much a 2 1/2 degrees centigrade it would prove to make fishing very difficult with numerous marlin being seen swimming on the surface, none of which could be enticed in to a bite. Shogun hooked a nice Blue on 15Kg only to have the marlin jump onto the line and break off! After cease fishing, we had the afternoon weigh ins and I must say that I have never seen wetter fishermen! The weather cleared on Monday morning for the 7am shotgun start which we had every morning. Southern Destiny had a double hook up on Sailfish ...
  3. NEVAGIVUP ADDS ANOTHER FLY FISHING RECORD

    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!
