PNG Bluewater Mothership


Fish the most untouched bluewater in the world, from a luxurious mothership!
Eastern Fields is the remnant of a massive ancient volcano - now a just-submerged coral atoll, rising from thousands of metres deep to as close as a metre below the surface, and comprises an area of around 350 square nautical miles of barely touched reef. It rises from the bottom of the Moresby Valley about 90nm WSW of Port Moresby. The reefs are incredibly remote, and as untouched and close to perfect as you can find anywhere in the world. Fish remote and pristine waters of PNG that very few people have ever seen, let alone fished. Eastern Fields is infamous for huge dogtooth tuna, GTs, and pelagics including wahoo, mahi mahi, sailfish and marlin.... see more

Stuart Reid's 50lb Pending World Record PNG Black Bass

Pending World Record Black Bass

Papuan Black Bass are renowned the world over as the toughest pound for pound freshwater fish in the world, and the place to find the biggest Black Bass is PNG's Gulf province. The current all tackle world record Black Bass of 46lbs, and the fish pictured (caught on 19/6/14, by Stuart Reid, Fishabout) which is the pending world record at 50lbs, were both caught from these rivers.

Once you feel the strike you know that no freshwater fish can come close to the power. Watching 100kg guys get knocked over on the strike, reels give way, rods break in half and 130LB pound braid snap from the pound for pound strongest fighting fresh water fish is a sight to behold. If would like to experience the thrill of targeting PNG Black Bass and Barramundi in remote areas with very low fishing pressure contact us now
