If you love a challenge, then Vanuatu's angler and game fishing offers the chance to reel in everything from wahoo, yellowfin tuna, marlin, swordfish, dorado and a number of other fighting fish. While those of you who prefer the excitement without the wrestling will love reef fishing. If you do decide to head out to the reefs, your catch of the day could include everything from Queenfish and Mangrove Jack to Coral Trout, Giant Trevally and Green Jobfish. Occasionally the fringing reefs will also help you to snare bigger fish like Bonito, Mahi Mahi, Marlin and Dogtooth Tuna so make sure you rod has the strength to hold and you won't be telling the story of the one that got away.

Vanuatu fishing also offers the opportunity to go fishing at night and the most common fish you'll catch at this time of the day is Dogtooth tuna and Broadbill. No matter when or where you hit the water, you'll notice huge schools of Sailfish that frequent the waters of Vanuatu with some species seasonal, making spotting them even more exciting. Whether you're a solo angler, find the presence of a companion a more enjoyable experience or want the whole family to experience the excitement of reeling in a fish, there are a great range of day trips and fishing tours available. Particularly popular with larger groups, you can hire two boats and head out into the wild blue yonder in groups, competing for the catch of the day.
