CRUSOE FISHING FORFILLS A YOUNG MANS DREAM

 Father and son duo Steve and Joseph decided to escape the winter cold of Victoria and headed over to Vanuatu for some warmth. Joseph had decided that he wanted to catch a Blue Marlin as he had caught allot of other species. We ventured out on Reel Capture for a full day charter and worked the new FADS off Port Vila, with a nice Wahoo in the boat we decided to work North. After an hour or so, Joseph was hooked up to a nice Blue Marlin around the 130Kg mark, unfortunately his fish ended up tail wrapped and died, after a 2 1/2 hour battle the fish was in the boat. The guys decided that they wanted to head out again for another day on board Nevagivup. This time Joseph was on a mission and wanted to catch a bigger marlin, unfortunately this fished died and weighed a nice 165Kg. Steve also landed a nice Wahoo around the 25Kg mark. The guys had a great time and have vowed to return next year for a live aboard charter.
