WELCOME TO OCEANIC SPORTFISHING ADVENTURES, NOW BACK IN SAMOA!!

Captain Chris Donato is now back in SAMOA! We took some time to travel with Southern Destiny and after spending time fishing the other south pacific islands and a year fishing in Vanuatu we are ready to put you on the fish back in the beautiful Polynesian islands of Samoa. We are still the same tournament winning boat and the same organization that has broken records and consistently found the fish throughout the South Seas.

There is no better time then now to fish with well known and season tested, Captain Chris Donato. Chris is a 100 ton US Coastguard Master Captain who has traveled and fished several fishing hot spots and has spent many years fishing in and around the Polynesian and recently Melanesian islands of the south pacific. He has experienced different techniques and skills used in other fisheries and is prepared with a bag of tricks that will makes sure to put you in the best possible place to be on the fish. We can accommodate first time novice fisherman as well as expert anglers looking for IGFA World records,national records,line class records or personal records. There is no goal to far for us, we do ask you be specific if you have a certain kind of fishing in mind or a personal goal you would like to achieve.

GRANDERS, 1000 lb MARLIN

My opinion, and this is based on longline catch reports and different scenarios I have seen, is that Samoa and some of the other pacific islands are where these marlin come to spawn. Warm water, plenty of food and proximity to major currents makes it an ideal places to spawn. This explains why some of the most juvenile blue and striped marlin have been caught in Samoa. This also would indicate that certain seasons we would have large females in the 1000lb class roaming our waters ready to spawn with small male marlin. Why have more people not caught them, because nobody is fishing for them or running gear able to deal with them. People see but most are lost.

We have seen a few and just recently in Nov landed and weighed one that went 1024 lbs. I know if and when Samoa becomes more popular and big game boats begin to fish here more regularly we will see several Granders caught a year and the best thing is I have seen big fish here all year round. If your interested in Grander hunting please specify in your email and we can dictate a trip that best suites you as I have a few spot I believe are the areas where they are congregating, with that being said our latest grander 1024 lb blue was caught only 7 miles from the dock just outside the harbour around a school of yellowfin. They are here and waiting for you the question is ARE YOU READY FOR THEM!!!

Come enjoy SAMOA fishing on the LEILANI our 37 Merritt with Captain Chris Donato and his crew as featured in-

So for me I always felt it's the experience and atmosphere that makes Blue Marlin fishing so special, there are so many great fishing spots the world over but in saying that i have always had a special love for Samoa and the fishing has always impressed me above other locations. I guess what I'm saying is that although the fishing can be world class at times it's really the beautiful weather,people and calm seas that have made Samoa a place I love to fish. I can't guarantee that you will come to Samoa and catch a Grander but I can guarantee you will have an amazing experience on and off the water and a bunch of fast energetic blue marlin are the icing on the cake. A good day for us would be 8 Blue Marlin but the average day is about 2-3. Of course there are plenty of mahi mahi and tuna, but I’m talking about Marlin

We went 1 for 1 on Blue Marlin and 1 AHI Yellowfin and a Mahi. We also came across a Monster Blue Marlin tailing and lazy feeding on the surface. Wouldn't commit to our spread, but she was a sea monster, probably better off left alone to breed anyways. Good to see one that big out here right now. Were ready........ ... See MoreSee Less

Photos never do justice to a fish, but heres one that gives you a bit of an idea of her size. Nice one today we conservatively call 550 lb. Also had a smash bite from another one an hr later that was similar size. hmmmm lets see what tomorrow brings ... See MoreSee Less

Today went 1 for 1 on Sails and missed a ahi over 100. Tuna are finally starting to show on the edge, big AHI 100++lbs rolling all day on micro baits,crabs,krill. The bite should finally start to pop in the next few weeks. currents changed and baits starting to really show up. ... See MoreSee Less
