I beleive that the price of the charter was a rip off. I should have been a bit smarter and should have looked around. Yea the so called captian Bob was a nice guy, but with a underlining agenda being how to rip off unexpecting people from another country. Other than that, we caught no fish, great !!!

Thanks very much for your comments which I found exaggerated and untrue. Please note that my prices were displayed on the site. So were others. I’m sure that the hundreds of good comments received by our company is still evidence that we are the best in GAMEFISHING and we do strive to please all our customers. Unfortunately for us we bent over backwards to please you. For instance upgrading you to a bigger boat due to the choppy weather, your excessive drinking the night before and excessive smoking whilst on the boat was a constant source of worry to us.if we had known that you had three heart bypass and you are totally unfit to walk or fish we would not have taken your booking. Fortunately for you we are accommodating and understanding but we feel that your comments are unfounded and mischievous .We look forward to seeing you in fiji again. Please feel free to read about excellent service that we are known for in fiji.

We had a really good day. Bob and Mo made us feel welcome and did all they could to make the day safe and enjoyable. We were hoping to catch a trophy/game fish but because it was so calm the fish would not play the game. We had a few strikes but could get a hookup.
Bob said he would get us all a fish and he was true to his promise. He changed tactics and put us onto some Red Snapper, which massive fish. He helped all our crew get a hook up and land a couple of fish each or more.

I would be more than happy to take another charter with these guys.
