hi guys,

sorry for delay on just checked this thread again after a long time....


kingyslayer, yes aitutaki is good for gts.

bonefish, e2 will happily guide for gts if thats what the customer wants instead of bonefish, via fly or popper.

herby, glad you liked it, aitu is an awesome place, i love it. you are very lucky to make it out to takutea, i have been trying for 3 years and have not managed it yet! too good.

Hi guys

Just got back from the Cooks, spent week in Raro then week in Aitutaki.
For fishing recommend the latter, and the place in pristine!

Fished on Foxy Lady with Jason, think he is cousin of Mark's (Black Pearl)
$180 for 1/2 day, only myself fishing!
Anyways mainly chasing YF tuna, but no luck, yet end of day had half dozen casts into reef and got nice GT (approx. 20-25kg)
Was stoked as with that, and would highly recommend Jason!

As far as accommodation goes, would suggest Samade, east of the airport, Ned will look after ya!
Puffy's is the place to eat, 2 large fish and chip meals, and 4 double bourbons was $42!
Her fish was amazing.

Now is the time to head there, they recently landed a 440kg blue!

I saw those GT's being fed at the wharf in March, really impressive fish. Can only imagine what it must be like to be connected to oneCool

UPDATE
went fishing in rarotonga- which was fantastic- managed to get a Wahoo as it was in season, on the Blue Marlin Charters
i saw Gts in the harbour (akura) and Mauri Lagoon (outside mooring Cafe) but note to the Wise- these things are ppls pets, so poppers and top water stickballs won't work as they get feed the good stuff from the locals.
If u are that keen , a decent Assist Hook 12/0 With some generous size tuna chunks would be the go- u have to burley up a lot but they will come.
Bait, u can get at the Ocean fish shop - (off cuts are around $15 a kg) which is mostly tuna.
Happy fishing
