Popper Casting

Cast poppers and stickbaits for monster GTs and other reef predators along miles of Great Astrolabe barrier reef breakers.

Kadavu Island has 100km of Great Astrolabe barrier reef, the worlds 4th longest barrier reef and probably the world’s most unspoilt and least explored. The island’s calm inner coral lagoons offer shelter to a variety of trevallies and coral reef predators but the exposed outer barrier reef breakers are home to numerous large GTs in excess of 40kg.

We take anglers popper casting to target the big GTs as well as other species such as bluefin trevally, red bass, dogtooth tuna, green jobfish, narrow barred (Spanish) mackerel and barracuda.

We take great care handling fish and have a policy of releasing all trevallies. If you wish to target the large GTs, we recommend using heavy tackle. This keeps fight times short and maximises the likleyhood of fish being released in good condition.
