Stormbird has plenty of sun cover over a spacious deck area and is very popular for groups of up to 6 doing day trips fishing out of Port Vila. (No on board toilet)

Another great benefit of fishing these amazing waters is that you don’t need to travel very far before you begin fishing.

Stormbird is a 8.1 meter Reef Master that is great for day trips out of Port Vila. Stormbird has a great tackle line up whether you want to chase marlin or head out with the family for a few hours reef fishing and have a snorkel on a reef. Stormbird is set up to catch anything from a marlin to casting poppers for a G.T. We normally set the tackle on the day to suit the requirements of the anglers on-board.

Ten to twenty minuets is usually ample to get you amongst the action. We can then troll out around the F.A.D.’s and on a little further and fish the Marlin Highway which is more than 1000 meters deep and has become famous for turning on some amazing fishing. The Marlin Highway run hundreds of miles north and south past this island group to provide some of the best fishing in the world and periodically a 1000lb marlin turns up.

So for what ever your fishing requirements are while you are here in Vanuatu I’m sure there is a package or charter to suit your needs.

Big-game fishing often referred to as offshore sportfishing, offshore gamefishing or blue-water fishing is a form of recreational fishing.… When it comes to fishing Vanuatu you cant go past Wild Blue Fishing Charters. We are also known as Game Fishing Vanuatu

No fish trolling, one hookup, not landed, but I guess trolling is in the lap of the Gods, Went to reef and not much better, we all got 3-4 fish nothing over 20cm. Had good time with crew, as they say “your worst days fishing is better than your best day at work.”

Hi Martin,
Ya sorry about the slow day, We have just come off an amazing week of fishing, the wind had swung to a nor westerly in the morning and that tends to slow things. Thanks for coming anyway. Come and see us another day and we will throw in some additional fishing time for you on us.
Here are some pics of recent catches,

Regards Pete
