The tuna are finally starting to show up.

Massive schools of very big skipjack and a few isolated yellowfin schools are feeding offshore. The marlin have started to arrive as well; we have seen four in the last two trips. One particularly hungry, fat blue marlin snatched a 24kg yellowfin right off the lure's hook just three metres from our transom! We also spent some time fighting a big blue marlin on 37kg line, so the big girls are starting to show as well.

This arrival of bait and billfish is great to see and should make for some exciting months ahead. Inshore, some big GTs have been caught by some of the local trailerboat fishermen, and Captain Ian on Pure Indulgence has been racking up numbers of spanish mackerel and barracuda.

All and all, things are shaping up to be a good season ahead!

Cheap flights from New Zealand and big blue marlin are just two of the many reasons to come and check Samoa out!
