Bite Me Gamefishing Charters

Kadavu Island
Kadavu, Fiji

Bite Me Gamefishing Charters runs sportfishing trips off the coast of Kadavu Island. If you happen to visit the Matava Adventure Resort on the island, fishing for GTs, Wahoo, and Tuna is a great way to spend your vacation there.

These fish are biting well year round, and you can indulge in a variety of techniques. Trolling for GTs, Wahoo, Marlin, or Tuna is just one of the options. If you wish to target the extra large GTs on poppers, or Dogtooth Tuna on deepwater jigs, it is recommend that you bring along your own specialized heavy tackle.

The crew of the Bite Me Gamefishing Charters focuses primarily on fishing the Great Astrolabe Barrier reef, as well as trenches and seamounts around the Kadavu Island. They hold over 50 National and IGFA World Records. Captain Joeli Tuku has trained with Bite Me Gamefishing Charters for 12 years, accumulating an intimate knowledge of the island’s waterways. He has been featured in a variety of high-profile fishing publications and magazines, as well as numerous TV shows.

You will be fishing aboard 30’ offshore sportfishing boat made by Bluewater Craft. The boat is powered by twin Mercury engines and is overall a brand new vessel, having been custom-built for the team in 2014. The vessel is rigged with a conventional range of charter electronics and marine technology, such as GPS, radio and fishfinder, and features a toilet on board. She can comfortably accommodate groups of up to 4 anglers per trip.

The base price includes all trolling tackle required for the trip (mainly by Penn International and Shimano). Beverages, bottled water, as well as lunch are all part of a full day package, along with a complimentary cleaning of your catch. You don’t need a fishing license. Pack a camera, sunblock, a cap, sunglasses, and comfortable clothes. Then hop on, and enjoy your trip. Kids are welcome. Pack for the trip, and come get that Trevally!
