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 weekend. Also congrats must go to Charles for a fantastic weekend and he can also add another tournament win to the list!
