The Vanuatu Marlin Classic 2012 is being held from the 25th of May – 2nd of June. We still have boats available for this fantastic tournament which is a tag and release marlin only comp. For more information, just drop us an email!
All you have to do is come fishing with us in Vanuatu in 2012 on board either Nevagivup, Reel Capture or Wahoo and catch a Blue or Black Marlin that is over 1,000Lbs. This is fished to IGFA Rules and Regulations, book now so you don’t miss out on this once in a lifetime opportunity. Fish with Vanuatu’s most experienced and most successful charter operator!
May saw Reel Capture head to the Northern Islands for a week and was used as a dive boat for MV CV-9, Skippered by Captain Charlie. They encountered some rough seas for the first few days but the weather became kinder later in the week. August saw Reel Capture heading back North again this time with Steve and his sons. We lost the first couple of days due to bad weather as we could not get out of the harbour but they eventually got away. On the first day they headed straight for Epi and they stayed up at Taso’s at Lamen Bay. They encountered some great fishing with Wahoo and some Dog Tooth Tuna as well. On the last day they overnighted at Havannah Harbour before heading back to Vila the next day.
The last few months has seen some great runs of Blue Marlin coming past with allot of juilevanile marlin and some rather large ones as well. Our boats have been amongst the crowd with one day our three boats raising 12 marlin for the day. Nevagivup was blown away on 130 pound tackle with a 1000 pound + marlin and Reel Capture raised a marlin around the 1200+ pound mark! They also lost an estimated 800+ pound marlin after a two hour fight!
