Heading to Fiji? Here are the TOP 5 fishing charters to get onboard

Fiji has some of the most incredible marine life in the world, making it a hugely popular destination when it comes to fishing. With such a dense underwater eco-system, the oceans of Fiji offer everything from Tuna and Marlin to Wahoo, Walu, and Mahi Mahi. There’s plenty to catch that will challenge even the most seasoned fisherman.

Although Fiji’s tropical waters house fish throughout the year, some types are more plentiful at certain times than others. If you’re looking to catch Mahi Mahi, you can do so year-round, but you’ll find them in abundance from December through to February and again July through to August.

Giant Trevally flock Fiji’s waters around February through to April, Wahoo from July through to August, Blue Marlin February through to March, and Yellowfin Tuna make a popular appearance from March to April.

With so much variety when it comes to fishing in Fiji, it can be hard to know where to start so we’ve put together a list of the top five fishing charters to get around during your next tropical getaway.
