Highly recommend using these guys and would suggest full day trip to be able to target a couple of different species, fantastic equipment & comfort aboard. A+++

No fish trolling, one hookup, not landed, but I guess trolling is in the lap of the Gods, Went to reef and not much better, we all got 3-4 fish nothing over 20cm. Had good time with crew, as they say “your worst days fishing is better than your best day at work.”

Great half day on the water , fishing very quiet but not for lack of trying the two boys didn’t stop trying to put us onto the fish. trolling , bottom fishing and lure casting.

Hi Martin,
Ya sorry about the slow day, We have just come off an amazing week of fishing, the wind had swung to a nor westerly in the morning and that tends to slow things. Thanks for coming anyway. Come and see us another day and we will throw in some additional fishing time for you on us.
Here are some pics of recent catches, https://www.facebook.com/Game-Fishing-Vanuatu-285695674885250/?ref=hl

Crew and experience was awesome. Office staff lacked in personal relations and was quite rude and abrupt.

What can I say, the crew were awesome, they couldn’t do enough to try and get you onto the fish, the gear was spot on, even when the fishing was tough it was just good to be out on storm bird.
we were lucky enough to catch a black marlin on a 4 hour trip (which turned into a 7 hour trip) on the way home, there was no moaning about times or extra charges. we also caught Mahi Mahi and Tuna.
Cheers guys for an awesome trip that I will never forget.

As one of the guys in the crew for 2 of the 3 days fishing I gotta say Badger’s review was pretty spot on; the crew was totally AWESOME!  ALL of them, Skipper Kenny, and deck hands Tommy ‘the brother from the North’ and Leo ‘the Lion Tamer’. They are a great bunch who worked very hard, (non stop I might add), and they made each trip a really fun day. Nothing was too much trouble for these guys and with the skills AND the customer service these guys provide, you certainly couldn’t ask for a better crew! 12 outta 10!

The boat was a great boat, ideal for 6 plus crew and very comfortable, so no complaints there although no toilet (which prevented one of the girls from coming). 

The only ‘letdown’ of the whole trip was that only once we arrived at the boat were we told “the boat keeps the catch” which I now find interesting as this website (FishingBooker.com) clearly states “Clients Keep Catch”.  I think the details on this site need to be updated PLUS it would be good to advise clients via email BEFORE they arrive at the jetty!

Anyway, it wasn’t a problem when the charter owner said a nice marlin which one of the boys caught would be given to the local hospital (“they don’t eat very well unless we give them fish” we were told) and all the boys were happy about this. However, it was disappointing to find out later that this very same marlin had been sold and was actually being offered to us on the menu at our hotel!

Me and my son went out on with Wild Blue, the skipper put us in the right place at the right time. Pete and Leanne run a great charter company and watching the skipper on the controls while Max pooled out a marlin showed the skipper’s true expertise.
