Bite Me Gamefishing Charters

Kadavu Island
Kadavu, Fiji

Bite Me Gamefishing Charters operates a 30’ fast offshore centre console sport fishing boat, departing out of the Matava Adventure Resort & Spa on Kadavu Island. The boat is powered by twin Mercury engines and is overall a brand new vessel, having been custom-built for the team in 2014. ‘Bite Me’ is rigged with a conventional range of charter electronics and marine technology, such as GPS, radio and Fishfinder, and features a toilet on board. 30 feet long, it can comfortably accommodate groups of up to 4 anglers per trip.

The Bite Me team primarily focuses on fishing the Great Astrolabe Barrier reef as well as trenches and seamounts around the Kadavu Island, and 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, such as Marlin Magazine, Bluewater Magazine, as well as numerous TV shows.
