PNG BLACK AND SPOTTAIL BASS FISHING

On the North Coast of West New Britain in PNG sits Uluai Island, a spec in the Pacific with white sandy beaches surrounded by cobalt blue water.

The rivers of West New Britain nearby Uluai Island are renowned for what many rate as the toughest fish with fins, the black and spot tail bass.

Accessible from the island are plenty of clear mountain rivers, holding good numbers of both Black and Spot Tail Bass, to 40lb.

Uluai Island is the destination for the new remote lodge which provides the adventure angler with a comfortable base within easy reach of more rivers that hold these brutal piscatorial combatants. The lodge at Uluai, whilst still in its early stages of development provides simple but comfortable accommodation backed up by good food and attentive service.

The scenery is spectacular with an array of marine life likely to appear at anytime in the crystal clear water at your doorstep.
There are several rivers within 20-60 minutes of the island where both black and spot tails will be encountered. Whether you're blooping poppers on the surface, flicking lures at the structure lined banks or trolling the deeper sections of the rivers, that initial strike from these members of the Lutjanis Family will be imprinted in your mind forever.

PNG is one of the true fishing frontiers left in the world and the ultimate destination for many adventure anglers.
