Deepwater Jigging

Kadavu Island has 100km of Great Astrolabe barrier reef, the worlds 4th longest barrier reef. Steep outer reef slopes quickly plunge to hundreds of meters in depth and the island itself spikes up from the seafloor some 4,000m below the surface. To the North lies a remote coral atoll and to the South East, a range of underwater sea-mounts rise in places to depths as little as 150m.

A Kadavu Sea Mount 65kg Dogtooth Tuna

The calm inner coral lagoons offer shelter to a variety of reef predators but the exposed outer reef slopes and sea-mounts are home to patrolling Dogtooth tuna, Almaco Jack, Giant Grouper and a whole host of deep-water species.

Deepwater Jigging aboard Bite Me

We explore these remote reef cliffs with jigs ranging in size from 120g knife jigs in relatively shallow waters to 400g fast sinking Zero Dropper jigs on sea mounts and deep-water bottom features.

From your base at Matava Eco-Adventure Resort, the nearest passageway through the barrier reef is just 5 minutes away aboard our fishing vessel Bite Me Too.
