First Class Fishing Vanuatu for Ocean Blue Regulars!

We had the pleasure in hosting back to Trees and Fishes, Ocean Blue regular Toby Browne & Chris Logan for their yearly father & son adventure, fishing Vanuatu. What a week for this party of 9 anglers who fished with OB guide Stephen Moderan & Eric Festa.

Day one saw a tally of 15 yellowfin tuna, with double hook ups on topwater with the fish ranging from 25kg to 61kg along with a big wahoo, caught on a 60g jig.

Day two dogtooth mayhem, Vanuatu sea mount. Geared up with 170lb leaders, 100lb braid and despite having there drag locked up so tight, the dog tooth pulled this like it was cotton and in no time were busted off.  “These doggies are big and unfriendly. Huge hit after huge hit, drags screaming rods buckled over, and backs and arms aching. Not one got landed. Frustration all around. We had double hook ups, triple hook ups and one quadruple hook up where all four were going for a big one. All busted off. Amongst the 5 of us we would have lost $500 worth of jigs!”, reports Toby Browne.  The sea mount lived up to its reputation and so did the doggies.

Day 3 & 4 saw more yellowfin ranging between 25kg and 40kg as well as a 150kg blue marlin, 25kg dogtooth and a 30kg GT caught out the front of the lodge just on dusk.

Congratulations to all anglers on some great catches and thank you again for visiting our little piece of paradise. Lukem Yu!

We had a fantastic time fishing with the Ocean Blue team. The fishing was first class with plenty of variety on offer. The guides are very friendly and knowledgable of the area and worked hard to put us on the fish. The tree’s and fishes lodge was also superb with great food and staff….. We’ll be back! Thanks again for a great time to all the crew at ocean blue!

Just back from 5 days in Vanuatu staying at Trees & Fishes and fishing with the Ocean Blue team. To say I’m impressed is an understatement. From the moment we were picked up at Port Vila airport the staff were super friendly and helpful. The fishing guides were on point – their local knowledge and experience was obvious as they worked tirelessly to put us on the fish each day, and the boats are very well appointed for sport and game fishing. The resort itself is in a stunning location, and the food served was mind blowing. Everyone here works hard to ensure its a great experience – I will certainly be back!
