Mitch Clement

Member since December 2016 Port Vila, Vanuatu
Background
In September 1999 I traveled to Vanuatu with 14 members of the Middle Island fishing club from Kalgoorlie WA to try our luck game fishing in the South Pacific. From the moment we arrived I fell in love with the place and the people and came back 2 months later and invested here. I moved to Port Vila in 2003 to manage a resort I had built. This was sold in 2010 and I have been doing fishing charters since.We are located in the serene waters of Havannah Harbour and even on charterless days I am out finding new jigging or popping spots to take anglers. So many options.
Techniques
We cover all types of fishing including trawling, live baiting, popper and jigging, we deepsea fish with electric reels and reef fish for coral fish.
