Lord Howe Island Trip April 2008


Recommended Posts

Hi raiders

I'm planning a trip to LHI, this trip will consist of LB fishing, targeting big kings, yellowfinn tuna, sharks, silver drummer and the exotic blue fish, which is extinct from the mainland.

Fly fisherman are welcome,with big drummer, bonefish on offer and after witnessing a 10kg king being land on fly at clear water place, i can say fly fisherman will test their tackle.

Numbers need to be finalized, so that accommidation and charters can be booked.

Wahoo upwards of 30kgs, 10kg silver,bluefin and black travelly will be target species on the charters, including jigging for monster kings.

Snorkeling, diving, surfing, moutaineering, bird watching, hiking and 5:00pm fish feedings at ned's beach(great fun snorkeling with 30kg kings) are other activities on offer.

BBQ our catch every night, drinks at the bowls club and with plenty of good cafe/restaurants to choose from we won't be going hungry

Cost of return ticket $830

Cost of shared accommodation $100 each per night each

Cost of charters to balls pyramid $900 a day max of 8 person (recommend 6)

Cost of lagoon charters $45per hour

The chaters have to be booked by easter 16/4 - 27/4/08

Any interest please PM chriso or call 0448920140 to get the ball rolling(7 places confirmed)post-3449-1174370042_thumb.jpg
