Malolo Fisher - Fishing Machine

Malolo Fisher Sports - Fishing Machine with Captain Bob offers sports fishing trips. Based in Nadi, Fiji, here you can hope to find and get some nice specimens. Whether it’s game fish you seek, or a nice day out on the water with your friends, you will easily find here what you need.
But, even when you find fish, they will still put up a fight before you can take them home.

Luckily, both Fishing Machine and Captain Bob have what it takes to claim a nice catch. Captain Bob has been fishing around the local waters his whole life. He knows these waters intimately, and will work to make your outing memorable.

Fishing Machine is a 29’ Catamaran that can accommodate up to eight anglers. She is powered by a twin Toyota inboard engine, and gets you to the waters teeming with fish. An hour ride away, fish are numerous and that’s when Fishing Machine comes to action. She is rigged with the navigational equipment, has outriggers, downriggers, lifebuoys, floating rafts, a game chair, custom built toilets. It stores eight rods for game fishing, has Pakula, Zacatacks, Halco and Rapala lures, and fine Penn, Shimano, and Tiagra tackle.

You can fish for the likes of Giant Trevally, Mahi Mahi, Snapper, Grouper, and even Sailfish, Black Marlin, and Yellowfin Tuna. You can try bottom fishing, trolling, jigging, popping, or handline.

You will get the fishing gear and the crew will also take care of the fishing license. There will be water onboard, and an esky with ice. If you want, you can have a BBQ at an extra cost, or you can bring along your own food. You should bring a cap, sunnies, sunscreen, and an extra layer of clothes in case the chase gets wet. Generally, you should wear something comfortable so that you can move with ease. Make sure to pack your camera as you will definitely want to have a photo to show around after the trip.
