FISHING

Tufi’s pristine waters are ideal for game fishing, bottom fishing and estuarine fishing.

Bottom fish the deep clear waters of the Solomon Sea and enjoy the thrill of hooking some big fish at Tufi. Then head to beautiful Komoa Beach and feast on a seafood BBQ, complimented with garden salads, tropical fruits and full bar service.

Dogtooth tuna, yellowfin tuna, wahoo, trevally, spanish mackerel and giant barracuda are all in abundance in this scattered network of reefs of over 250 square miles.

Enjoy bottom fishing for red emperor and nannygai or fish in the estuaries for the mighty mangrove jack. Experience the unspoiled Cape Nelson area, boasting the only tropical fjords in the world.

Tufi Resort offers the unique experience of fishing in absolute pristine waters on outer reefs that have yet to be fished on; it is not unusual to come across two to three reefs in one day that are not on any charts.

All fishing is done away from our regular main diving reefs. This is to take the fishing experience into fantastic locations that are literally untouched paradise for fishermen.

We have discovered reefs that offer large amounts of wahoo, GT’s and huge dogtooth tuna that have spooled us in 5 minutes on a 15kg line. During the mackerel-spawning season (September to January) you can land up to 30 mackerel in two hours of intense game fishing, some of them weighing in at around 25kgs.

Head upstream into the muddy waters of the small rivers that spill into the beautiful fjords, casting into the snags to hook up great fighting fish like mangrove jack.

Our modern fleet will cater for all of your fishing needs. Our boats are skippered by some of the most experienced local seafarers in this area, with intimate knowledge of the best spots to drop a line. Our enthusiastic team will personally discuss weather and conditions with you upon arrival, formulating the best plan for early morning set outs or afternoon sessions.

There is nothing like casting a trawling line out whilst motoring home and quenching a hard earned thirst with the iciest of local beers! Our chefs are keen and waiting to BBQ or bake any of your prize catches, or to fillet your fish and serve it as fresh sashimi.
