The attraction here is the quiet. On the shore it’s rainforest, so there aren’t a lot of people working the waters of the reef. I’ve been here fishing for big Black Marlin, they probably come for the peace and quiet as well and for the feeding, the whole food chain circle of life is played out here, with the marlin close to the top end with big groupers and jacks and manta rays and apparently even hammerhead sharks have been spotted. As well as Black Marlin we’ve caught Blues and Striped Marlin and as well as marlin we’ve caught sailfish and Yellowfin Tuna.

The shore drops away really suddenly and deeply so you don’t’ have to go out too far before you get a nibble, and for most of the week I was there I could see the baitfish churning just below the water which is definitely a good sign and the fish here are of Pacific Ocean size so its definitely the place to come to battle with the big fish. Highly recommended, lots of size records have been broken here, it’s just away from it all and your choice of charter and lodge is limited.
