Fishing at Lissenung

Lissenung Island sits in the middle of two oceans, the South Pacific and the Bismarck Sea, surrounded by deep blue water. New Ireland is home to 149 mostly uninhabited islands, which create a myriad of channels with currents ranging from gentle to ripping.

These strong currents bring in pelagic fish such as Giant Trevally, Spanish Mackerel, Mahi Mahi, Barracuda as well as Yellowfin, Dogtooth and Skipjack Tuna. Plenty of Mangrove Jack, Red Emperor, Coral Trout, Rock Cod and Sweetlips are caught closer to the fringing coral reefs.

Due to our close proximity to the Equator, the water temperature does not change much and remains between 28 and 31 degrees Celsius all year. This means that we do not have specific seasons and fishing is steady year-round. Our local guides have lived here all their lives, and as the villages still rely on fishing to supplement their meals, they know the best fishing grounds in the area. 

Lissenung Island Resort generally has a Catch & Release policy, but we are more than happy for you to bring dinner back to the island where our cooks turn the fish into yummy meals. 



The fishing vessel is a Haines Hunter 600 Offshore Classic with canopy, powered by a 250HP Suzuki 4-stroke outboard engine. We further use a 23′ fiberglass boat, powered by a 140HP Suzuki 4-stroke engine, which has a flat bow, allowing for easy casting. Rod holders for trolling are installed in both boats. On request, we can also supply an open boat without canopy. The boats carry GPS, fish finder, communication devices and safety equipment.

We currently have a Shimano TLD20, a Penn 950 SSm and two Penn 850 SSm, with an assortment of lures, hooks etc., but guests are welcome to bring their own gear.

Wide-brimmed hats, long-sleeved light-weight shirts as well as plenty of sunscreen are essentual to avoid sunburn. All guests using fishing equipment supplied by the resort are required to sign a waiver confirming that they will be liable for any cost incurred for lost lures and/or rods.

Full day fishing trip, incl. rods & lures, 50l petrol
