Papua New Guinea is famous for its fishing, with the Papuan Black Bass being world renowned as pound-for-pound, the world’s toughest fighting fish.
Fishing is probably the most popular pastime for coast and Island dwelling Papua new Guineans; whether it is for the sport, angling for leisure, earning an income or just wanting to feed the family.
Papua New Guinea has an incredible array of light tackle sport fishing options, with almost every species of Pacific gamefish inhabiting the plankton and baitfish-rich waters adjacent to the reef and continental shelf… Imagine trolling rigged baits or deep diving minnow lures for the likes of wahoo, spanish mackerel, yellowfin tuna, dolphin fish (mahi-mahi), various trevally, sailfish and marlin. These tropical speedtsers offer exceptional sportfishing opportunities. Then of course river fishing adventures abound for Barramundi, Mangrove Jack, Golden Snapper, Threadfin Salmon, Spottail Bass and the highly sought Black Bass.
