Club BCF Fish Niue

Many an Aussie angler dream of fishing Niue Island. Here is what Club BCF have to say:

While the average Australian might be at a loss if asked to pin Niue Island on a map, the team here at Club BCF caught wind that this small pacific Island paradise offered top-notch fishing and a relaxed lifestyle to match. Being one of the world’s smallest countries, the water (and fish) is never far away. It sounded like the perfect spot to send a couple of Club BCF members to investigate; a job that competition winners, father and son duo, Mike and Tom, relished.

The trip included seven nights accommodation at Matavai Resort, boasting breakfast on the balcony accompanied by a view of the open ocean and breeching whales. Being a BCF adventure, the trip wouldn’t be complete without wetting a line or two, so the boys also tried their luck on four fishing charters.

A range of pelagic fish were caught, including Barracuda, Wahoo and a couple of Mahi Mahi. A few Coronation Trout also joined the party after changing their technique to target demersal species.

If a remote island getaway is a part of your holiday plans, make sure you consider Niue Island. It’s the perfect hideaway to escape the holiday rush and offers some great fishing to boot.

Quintrex’s popular Hornet range continues to be the boat of choice for serious fisherman and the F450 is proving to be one sought-after fishing rig.

The new design of the F450 Hornet maximises fishablity – the slimline sports console increases cockpit space and fishing access while the standard front and rear casting platform offer the perfect fishing spot wherever you may go.

Fully equipped for your next fishing trip the F450 Hornet is complete with a live bait tank in the back deck and tackle box tray as standard while the wide 2.1m beam creates a large front casting platform complete with a battery tray.

Quintrex National Account Manager Cameron Wood said the Hornet range has developed a cult following famous for the stability of the Eclipse V-Flared Hull.

‘The Eclipse Hull allows the beam to be wider at the bow for a larger front casting platform and cuts through choppy water well for all round stability,’ Cameron said.

‘The F450 Hornet is a great performer on the water and you can’t go wrong with the huge amount of features you get as the standard,’ Cameron added.

The F450 Hornet features a 77L underfloor fuel tank and a rating of 75HP meaning you can get to your favourite fishing spot quick and stay out there all day long.

Option up the F450 Hornet with a bow mount thruster plate, burley bucket, bimini and envelope, stereo and speakers and a deluxe rod storage locker for the keen fisherman

The F450 Hornet is available as a Quintrex Instant Boating Package including an engine, Quintrex Trailer and 3 year limited factory warranty.
