To Captain Tom, Johnny Sailfish and George, It has taken me a while to sit down and collect my thoughts and reflections on our fishing adventure on the ‘Golden Eagle’ in Fiji. Quite probably this has been because I am still yet get beyond the elation I feel when I reflect on those 5 days we shared fishing the seas in and around Kadavu, Fiji aboard the majestic GOLDEN EAGLE.

 

 

I am sure I can speak on behalf of Mick and Erin and say what an absolutely fantastic time we shared, one that will be spoken of many, many times over and remembered often and always with a smile. Even before time has had the opportunity to expand on these memories, several words come to mind to describe those five days... incredible, fantastic, sensational, remarkable, mind blowing & astounding.

 

 

Many of the experiences and the great memories are due entirely to the crew of the GOLDEN EAGLE. What a great bunch of guys you are, welcoming us with friendship and humor and providing some of the most memorable fishing experiences anyone could ever hope for. To you I offer my many, many thanks.

 

 

It was so much more than ‘another’ fishing trip. To meet with the people from Johnny’s village and share with them some of our time in their village, on the island where we weighed that massive dog tooth tuna, as well as on the back of the GOLDEN EAGLE are just some of the some lasting memories. With the incredible fishing grounds around the west end of Kadavu, I can say how I would have liked to have spent even more time there, a lay day or two where we could have explored more of the inshore fishery and the Kadavu culture.

 

 

And the quality of the fishing added even more. To see and have some of the greatest fishing I have ever experienced in over 45 years of fishing …caught my first fish when I was four…speaks volumes for the fishing grounds as well as the fishing package we enjoyed. GOLDEN EAGLE is one of the most capable and well equipped boats I have had the pleasure to fish on. The fishing tackle and equipment is world class and maintained in optimum condition ensuring that for every fish we hooked, we had every opportunity to land it. Well done.

 

 

To Captain Tom, a great skipper who knows how to find the fish. Knew the spots, where to and where not to fish and produced several ‘fish of a lifetime’ for each of us. Vinaka Vakelevu. Seganaleqa, Marau.

 

 

To Johnny Sailfish, great fun and good on the deck. Kept us entertained and when it countered he was ‘all over it’ on the deck. Vinaka na kava, Vinaka na veiwali.

 

 

George, a great mate for many years now, thanks heaps for the opportunity to come and fish with you, Mick and Erin. For essentially three strangers fishing together for the first time, living under each others feet, it was really well organized and held together to produced all that we could dream of. We each had a fishing checklist and ticked off every box – when that happens it has truly been something special. Au maru vakelevu.

 

 

 

Again thanks to crew and owners of GOLDEN EAGLE – A GREAT TIME in a GREAT PLACE. I am sure we will be back again to catch up with Captain Tom, Johnny Sailfish, Kadavu and the GOLDEN EAGLE.

 

 

 

Vinaka Vakelevu, Ni Sa Moce.
