Deep Sea Fishing in Fiji

If you’re looking for a place where you can catch big game all year long, then look no further than Fiji. Deep sea fishing charters in Fiji are popular because it doesn’t take long to reach the fishing grounds (no more than 45 minutes in most cases, often less) and the fishing is simply amazing all the time.

What can I expect from a deep sea fishing trip?

You can find deep sea fishing charters in pretty much any well-populated part of Fiji, but the top locations are Denarau Island, Kadavu Island, Sigatoka, and other places along the Coral Coast. The length of a typical trip will vary depending on where you’re fishing, what you’re hoping to find, as well as how much time you want to spend on the water in general.

If you don’t have much time to spare, or are interested in fishing near the reef areas, you will be able to find deep sea trips that start from three or four hours. These will usually take you fishing for Mahi Mahi, Blue Marlin, Giant Trevally, Sailfish and others that like to hang out near the reefs.

Alternatively, a trip further out is the way to go if you want to hook Dogtooth Tuna, Black Marlin, Wahoo, and more. Regardless of your starting location, you shouldn’t need to go more than 50 miles out at the very most. These trips aren’t done in less than six hours, but eight hours (or more) is highly recommended.

Kadavu Island is a good pick for a mixture of both because of its proximity to the Great Astrolabe Reef, which makes for very diverse fishing without needing to go a long ways out to find some species like Black Marlin.

Fishing Techniques

Trolling is the go-to technique on these trips, and is best used when fishing for Marlin, Sailfish, and Tuna. The Pacific Blue Marlin is one of the most sought-after fish in Fiji and can vary in size from 150 lbs all up to 1000 lbs. You will achieve the best results with trolling lures, skip-baits, and livebaiting. The biggest Blue Marlin are mostly caught from January up until March.

Giant Trevally, the other big player in Fiji, requires a different approach. Professionals use poppers and stickbaits to hook them, and it’ll be a hard-won fight. If you’re chasing extra big GT’s, you might want to consider bringing extra heavy tackle (100 to 130 lb line class). The most frequently used poppers for this purpose are Full Scale, Hammerhead, Orion, and FCL Labo poppers.

How much will it cost?

The good thing about fishing charters in Fiji is the sheer diversity of offers available. Some of the cheaper offers can go below 100$ per hour! Generally speaking, you’re looking at around $900-1000 for a full eight-hour trip, while the shorter ones go for $400-500 and last four or five hours. You are certain to find at least one offer that fits your needs like a glove.

What anglers said about Deep Sea Fishing in Fiji

Very hot time of year, so make sure to wear sun cream and stay out of the sun. The jigging and casting is exciting but hard work on such a hot day. The trolling was great but we only got a few hits that got off. The fish we caught, Coronation trout, were the best I’ve tasted.

October was amazing fishing. The tuna were biting and we were driving through large schools for a couple of hours reeling them in. We caught 19 in all which we heard was a good day on the water. Weather couldn't be beat. High 80's and sunny. Wish we could do this more often.

If you are looking for big game fish, book the longer trip 6 or 8 hours. Our first mate told us there are bigger fleets taking the game fish closet to shore....so to get to the fish you need to go further out which requires the longer trip.
