Vanuatu Charter Game Fishing | Crusoe Fishing Adventures


    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!
  4. Reel Capture takes out 6Kg Easter Tournament

    The Port Vila Game Fishing Club held its annual 6Kg Easter Tournament based at the Wahoo Bar in Havanna Harbour and of course over the Easter weekend. There were nine teams entered and the weather was still calm and warm, Reel Capture had the Triple J team on board from Victoria which was the Alexander family team with dad John with sons John and James. The fishing was a little quite on the first day with Makira bringing a nice Wahoo to the weigh station, we fished north this day at Nguna after Charles bought the boat around to Havanna Harbour from Port Vila. The game plan was to depart Port Vila on the Sunday morning and to fish Devils FAD. This proved to be a smart move after the slow fishing the day before. Once we got to the FAD and put the gear in the water, it was battle stations! We were pulling in fish over fist with some nice Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Rainbow Runners and Yellowfin Tuna. We also lost two Blue Marlin as well only to have Horizon catch one of the fish that we lost and Fred bought the gear back home for us. The Triple J team cleaned up the tournament up with James taking out Champion Male Angler and they also took out Champion team. The guys did a great job seeing that they hadn’t fished 6Kg before but they were helped along by Eric and Michelle who did the deck for the ...

      Kiwi anglers David and Jim from Nelson, had a cracking day out with Captain Richard Moruk on the 3rd of September 2012. On a half day charter our of Port Vila Vanuatu, our crew managed to raise 3 Blue Marlin for the day with tagging one, jumping one off and landing a whopper 720 pounder! Both David and Jim both got to experience the fight and after an hour and a half fight, the decision was made to land the fish as it was as tired as the guys were! Not a bad trip for these very lucky fisherman as they had won their holiday and fishing trip in a draw! Congratulations guys on a nice fish!
