Every winter, the waters boil with huge bait balls and feeding tuna. Skipjack, mackerel and big eye tuna make superb light tackle sport and great bait for the marlin that start showing in June. During June July and August large packs of Wahoo and Pacific Sailfish congregate along the barrier reef providing great sport for light tackle anglers.

For the keen bill fish angler or those wishing to experience big game fishing for the first time, the boat can be on the 1000 metre Pacific drop off within 15 minutes trolling for black marlin, blue marlin, striped marlin and Pacific sailfish.

Step up the tackle and strap on a harness for the biggest stand up fight experience of your game fishing career with the greatest prize in the ocean, the giant black marlin.

Sport Fishing

Spend a few exciting hours hunting the big tropical predators such as Wahoo, Spanish mackerel and barracuda that cruise the reef system from the comfort of your very own game fishing boat.

Make your dreams come true with a once in a lifetime specimen GT, mahi mahi, or yellow fin tuna. Relax, and enjoy some screaming reels.

Anglers can sport fish the various pinnacles and bommies within the reef system on Penn International 30lb class rods and reels or, weather permitting, head out through one of the barrier reef passages and step up to Penn International 50lb and 80lb class gear and fish the nearby continental shelf drop off for billfish.

Most Resorts operate a policy of “Catch and Release” on all billfish and other game fish not destined for the dinner table.
