New Offshore GT Popping & Jigging Boat

Work is well under way on our brand new offshore GT Popping & Jigging boat Bite Me Too being built by BlueWater craft in Navua, Viti Levu. She will be a 28ft go-fast go-anywhere fishing machine designed to perfectly service the growing GT Popping and deep water jigging specialists as well as offer anglers the opportunity to go after pelagic gamefish such as marlin, Pacific Sailfish, yellowfin Tuna, Dorado and Wahoo on stand-up tackle. Powered by the very latest Twin 150 Mercury 4-strokes she will cruise at 25 kts and be capable of reaching 35+ knots at WOT.

Sister Ship

The vessel will be based on the above design however we have added a number of modifications to suit our fishing around Kadavu Island.

and of course easy access transom door for hauling in a big Yellowfin or sliding in the big GTs for release !

 

I will be personally supervising the finishing touches and loading all the required brand new safety equipment in a few weeks and we hope to have her in Marine Survey and in service by the beginning of December. We are now taking bookings for the summer season starting 1st January 2014.

 

I can’t wait to barrel out to the Kadavu Seamount and drop some jigs !
