Samoa Fishing Report, April 2013
 
 
Just over 2 years ago I had the pleasure of visiting Samoa to see what the potential was for Fishing Getaways to develop the location as one of our primary fishing destinations. I returned super excited by the potential I saw. In April this year, Samoan Tourism Authority invited me back to meet with a number of operators and to give me a chance to revisit the people I had met on the last trip. I could not wait to get back, especially to Vai-I-Moana, to wet a line with Sale - the owner.
I took Chris Beattie, the managing editor of Club Marine Magazine, with me so look out for an article in their June edition to experience the joys of Samoa. Besides being spoilt with crayfish dinners, Sale took us out on day one for a quick fish - 2 hours on the water - before dark, and this saw us hook up to 3 GT's up to 10kg at once. Just 10 minutes after leaving the jetty! Day two had us fishing in the morning and exploring the cultural sights in the afternoon, but it was day three that saw the most action... We had limited fishing time, so we headed out early. We managed to hook and land a Barracuda that was later cooked and packed for our lunch, an amazing effort by the staff at Vai-I-Moana. Then Sale spotted some birds working out at the 5 mile mark, which produced a double hook up of nice sized Mahi Mahi. After we landed these, it was then time to start back as we had a ferry to catch back to the main island at 2.00pm. When we were about 3 miles out, there was that beautiful sound of line speeding off a reel. After almost being spooled and a number of jumps and a massive effort by Chris and the crew, a 160kg Blue Marlin was captured. Not bad for a 18ft boat and just 4 hours on the water!
Vai-I-Moana lived up to my excitement from the last visit, offering great fishing, great people and great accommodation. Add to this our boat out of Apia and a new resort & boat that we were introduced to on the trip, and Samoa ticks the boxes for all. The 2014 share charter dates have now been released, make sure you book early to secure your place to fish in this tropical paradise!
