Well i've been there and i was not disappointed!!
Everything i have heard and read about was true!!
The people were great,and the bone's were easy pleased..
I loved it and will return as soon as the wife let's me [-o<
I caught about 50 bones,with the biggest about 5 pounds.
I saw some really big GT's around the 50 pound mark..
The guide i had was from the Captain Cook Hotel and his name was eccite (ecces).He was a fantastic and a very patient guide with good spotting eye's!!I would recommend him to anyone going over and definatly use him again!!

Good Trip! How did you get there, where and how long did you stay? How many days did you fish?

Hi Tim!
It was a great trip,very memorable.
I flew from Australia to Fiji and then from Fiji to C I.
We stayed at the Captain Cook Hotel for 8 days and fished everyday.
Some day's were harder then others,but i caught fish every day i was there.
