Samoa

Samoa forms the heart of Polynesia and offers warm waters, fantastic climate and year-round fishing for all pelagic species. Samoa is just starting to be truly discovered as an exciting game fishing destination.

Big marlin and yellowfin are features of the early (May) and late (November) season runs with yellowfin up to 80+kg being a strong possibility at this time of year.
