This waterfront hideaway is an ideal base for Reef, river,lake, lagoon and sea fishing. All just minutes away. All tide access makes easy organization to fish morning, noon and night.
Boats are subject to availability and need to be booked.
Prices run from Fiji $40 an hour plus fuel (small local boat)to $100 + an hour for a large boat. You can also have the opportunity to troll in the magnificent Natewa Bay the largest bay in the South Pacifc.
Anglers can experience popping,trolling ,jigging and fly fishing. Mangrove Jacks, barracuda, sailfish,trevalli,Yellow Fin Tuna and Reef fish are all caught here.
Please bring your own gear. Fishing News Hi, We went fishing this morning and had no luck until we went to the holes in the lagoon and then got two blue trevs and then I hooked a 19-20kg GT which was pretty good. Had fish for breakfast and the big head is wrapped in banana leaves on the bbq for lunch. Ruby and mikes friend Kierry are having a nice girly time and were sitting on pontoon when we got back from fishing with a string of frangipani. Keep on Fishing.
Walu caught trolling out side the reef.
Fisho Talk I took an english guy fishing this morning and he hooked a big trevally which rubbed the lure off on the coral...just ripped the hook off and left the lure jammed in the reef...I had to dive in to retrieve it.
Just following on from your mail to Alex with regards to fishing gear for February.
If we’re going out wide for tuna, what sort of tuna are they? If they’re blue I’ll need more than a 10 pound spinner rod!
I don’t really wanna take too much tackle ( Alex will no doubt bring the shop!) I’d like to get some fish though from the lake, river and the big blue!
Will the 10 pound spinner rod be enough for mahi-mahi, Spanish mackerel and tuna etc? I only plan on bringing one rod and limited tackle, a spinning rod, some lures, traces, and an egg beater reel. I’m not after marlin this trip so hoping this will be enough?
Thanks for your help mate, can’t wait to get there, really looking forward to it!
OK , All set. The weather, well thats a biggy, hopefully it will be fabulous, the best thing is it is never cold. March is usually pleasant and the end of the rainny season but the seasons have not been reliable and it can often be sunny in the morning and rainy in the night with a shower in the afternoon or any which way.
Andrew is a keen fisherman and there is river , reef lake and sea fishing here. Fly fishing, jigging, trolling eTc.
Andrew suggests in the rapalla, a skitter prop small size for the lake fishing. If you want to go after Tuna etc in the deep sea then you best get some tuna surface lures. Large rapalla( blue mullet type 18 cm.) Jigs (spanyid) and some trace Halco weldwire black nylon coated 30 pound. Guess you have your rods if not a light weight casting rod about 10 pound is good.
Hope that is helpfull.Happy to answer more questions that come up. Best Regards Sonja
Hi David,The 10lb rod is for the lake mostly and is probably a bit light for reef fishing,trolling.The Tuna are skipjack and yellowfin but Walu (spanish mackerel) and Wahu are more common,although of course one never knows with fishing.I have a 30lb and a 50lb for trolling.I have you booked for march 1-6 not february? Have had some good fishing recently casting poppers on the reef and landing some 10-15kg trevally,good fun.Look forward to your visit, Andrew
Andrew, Hows the fishing been? Me and the boys went out for my bucks weekend last weekend. Pictures attached. Hooked up to two nice blue marlin, one about 300 pounds and one about 150, stunning fish but both spat the lures close to the boat!!! We're not doing to well with our fishing at the moment!!! Hope you guys are well, I posted reviews on both web pages!
"We have just returned from a wonderful holiday at Salt Lake Lodge. What a breath of fresh air! A wonderfully peacful place with great accomodation, service and hosts. Andrew and Sonya, thank you so much! We cannot speak highly enough of our time there and can't wait to return! Food, fishing and destination were truely amazing and the momeries will remain with us for a lon, long time, thank you.Clean, safe, comfortable, environmentally conscious wonderland. I have travelled far and wide and whilst I have been fortunate enough to visit many places around the world, there are few I would return to so willingly. I would also highly recommend the maid service, Dee cooked up some of the finest food we ate during our time in Fiji and would put many a five star restaurant to shame. 10 out of 10 for Salt Lake Lodge!!!"
