Hi. Going to Upolu in Samoa for a good week of R&R. Does anyone recommend any good fishing charters in Upolu?

I'm not really keen for Marlin fishing. I prefer to try and catch Tuna, Mahimahi, GT, etc. Any recommendations? :y:

I can remember the guy was from Switzerland and had been living there for years, he had a cat and we didnt see anything, he did say at the time that the Russian factory ships had been hammering the place, we tried both trolling and even some reef fishing , but it was very ordinary fishing TBH

Will do. I've been told to go to American Samoa for primo fishing. If I can't find anywhere in Upolu I think i'll be downing cocktails and sunbathing. :y:
