Paul kicks of the series in style with a feature length episode from Fiji on the beautiful private island of Namuto where the fishing is fantastic all year round. To start off, Paul heads offshore with wife, Christy and son Jet trolling live baits including Shad, Rainbow Runner and Flying fish and it isn't long before they hook into some big Spanish Mackerel followed by a hard fighting Oceanic White Tip Shark for Paul. Day 2 and Paul and Jet head out again for a short lure fishing session while they are waiting for the tide to turn and Jet lands a huge Needlefish or Longtom as they are often known as. They then set about doing some deep dropping, fishing at 350M with baits and Paul is soon rewarded with a stunning Snake Mackerel, an incredible and truly prehistoric looking fish. Always keen to try new things, Paul also has an exciting session on jet ski, where his guide Taylor stealthily navigates to the edge of a reef where there's plenty of bait fish activity before Paul starts throwing poppers and it isn't long before he gets a powerful Giant Trevally on which is shortly followed by a big Red Bass, another of the reef's main predators. In the last session of this episode, they head out offshore again looking for some bigger species and soon get a lovely Mahi Mahi before finding a big shoal of Yellowfin Tuna. This all action show just shows how incredible the fishing on the Fiji paradise that is Namuto Island truly is.
