MV Pure Indulgence - Troppo Fishing

Birth A3 Apia Marina
Apia, Samoa

Hop aboard for a thrilling angling adventure with Troppo Fishing and go after your biggest catch yet! Team up with Captain Gregory Hopping to explore the bountiful waters and exciting fishing that Samoa has to offer.

You will be fishing out of ‘MV Pure Indulgence’ – a beautiful 35’ Bertram cruiser with the capacity to take out up to 10 passengers, though 6 anglers can cast their lines comfortably.  There’s a toilet on board, as well as a salon with a multimedia system for you to take a break from all the fishing action.

She’s a lean sportfishing machine, reliable on the waves, and decked out with all the navigational and fishfinding gear you will need on your trip. There’s a spacious cockpit perfect for when you need a lot of room to battle your big catch, a flybridge to stay on the lookout for the best fishing grounds, and quality rods, reels, and tackle you will use. For the colossal catch, there’s a fighting chair to give you rapport and help you bring that bad boy in.

Capt. Gregory likes to tailor the trips to customers’ preferences, so if there’s a particular species you’d like to target or a fishing technique you’d like to try out, let him know, and he will make it happen. Speaking of the catch, you will be targeting a slew of different species, from Mahi Mahi, Giant Trevally, and Wahoo to Tuna, and agile Billfish like Blue Marlin, Spearfish, and Sailfish. You will get your catch cleaned and filleted after the trip, which means a scrumptious meal for dinner!

The trips with Troppo Fishing are all-inclusive, so food and drinks are provided, you just have to show up and enjoy. Bring your kids, bring your friends, and make the most of the great fishery Samoa has to offer!

Captain Gregory Hopping has been fishing all over the world, but he fell in love with it while he was growing up in Sydney. When he discovered Samoa, after running charters in various countries, he decided to open a fishing business there, and he hasn't looked back since. He's a certified IGFA captain, a passionate conservationist, and a big proponent of Billfish catch-and-release.
