Sportfish Vanuatu specializes in charters that are customized to suit your level of expertise. With the option of casting poppers along the fringing coastline and breaking reefs, Jigging on drop offs, Trolling the deep blue currents and Fly Fishing or light tackle casting in shallow lagoons, we have it all covered. 

The boat was designed by a fisherman for fisherman, with many unique features, such as bow casting platform, tuna tubes and a live bait tank. With its shallow draft it can reach areas of reef that are almost never fished, giving the angler the opportunity to cast lures at a range of species which inhabit these reefs., such as Giant Trevally’s, Blue Fin Trevally’s, Red Bass, Coral Trout, Green Jobfish, Yellow Lippers and Long Nose Emperors.

While also being able to utilize downriggers and a combination of bait and lures we troll the inshore drop off’s for pelagics, such as Wahoo, Sailfish, Dogtooth, Mahi Mahi, Yellow Fin and Barracuda’s, and small Marlin. We use the best quality tackle, with Rods from Shimano and Ian Miller and a range of Reels from Shimano, Sarragossa’s, Tallica’s and Susstain’s. For trolling we use a combination of short jig rods and powerful spinning gear all loaded with 50 lb braid.

For casting we use a range of spinning gear to suit braid from 10 lb to 80 lb. We carry a large range of lures in all sizes to suit the tackle and conditions, but also encourage you to bring your own. The boat departs from the Wahoo Bar, in picturesque Havannah Harbour, so it’s a short run to the fishing grounds, which means you have more time fishing, increasing your chances of catching that fish of a life time. We have no problem with you taking a piece of fish with you, or alternatively you can have your fish cooked at the Wahoo Bar, while you relax with a cold drink on the deck!!
