Despite heavy rain and strong winds forecast, three friends set out on an adventure with fishing charter company, Game Fishing Rarotonga on Tuesday.
And Steve Dunscombe (Australia), Claive Davies (Wales)
and Daniel Ahpere (New Zealand) were all smiles at the Avatiu Harbour after they
returned with three decent sized yellowfin tuna.
Game Fishing Rarotonga’s Kim Bertelsen said it had
been a good start of the year for the team as they have been going out fishing
on most days.
The charter company with their guests have managed some
good catches of marlin, yellowfin tuna, mahi-mahi and wahoo.
Bertelsen said they have had more people using the
charter during the current lower tourism season.
Game Fishing Rarotonga is looking to expand their
services by setting up an office at the Rarotonga International Airport next
month. They are also looking to purchase another smaller boat in addition to their
current fleet – Lady D which accommodates 12 people and Ruby accommodating four
Bertelsen says they’re expanding in preparation for the
additional flights from Hawaii starting in May and Australia in June this year.
