FIJI - Matava Inshore Fishing Report – April 2007

Postby BiteMeFiji » Mon May 21, 2007 4:09 am

For the waters around Kadavu Island- Fiji Islands
Charter Operator – Matava Resort Gamefishing
Boat Names – Offensive Tackle
Average Water Temp – 29.0
Average Sea State – Calm / mild chop
Average Winds – 5-10kts
Water Clarity – Variable inshore, good offshore

Inshore


The Narrow Barred (Spanish) Mackerel are getting more active because of the cooling water with the average size now increasing to about 30lbs. If you find a patch of schooling juveniles there is normally a big guy or two lurking nearby.

On the deepwater jigging and bait fishing side, still lots of action there. This type of fishing is good all year round and unaffected by seasons.

There are quite a few large Great Barracuda around at the moment, particularly in the inner lagoons.

The popper casting for Trevally has been average but will heat up big time in June/July. Divers recently reported seeing a school of huge Bluefin Trevally near one of our dive sites. They were cruising the shallows on top of the reef and were reported to average about 20lbs. That makes them all potential World Records.

Summary:

Water – Spiked up to 29 degrees but is now 28 degrees and falling.

Pacific Blue Marlin – Gone quiet as they feed deeper in cooler water and roam farther South

Sailfish – First few starting to congregate along the barrier reef

Wahoo - First few now congregating on barrier reef points

Yellowfin Tuna - Here in good numbers but often not surface feeding.

Mackerel – Plenty of small ones inshore, the bigger guys just starting to bite.

Mahi Mahi – Yes, lots to 20lbs about 3 miles offshore.
