Its no secret that all the fisheries around the world are cyclical. There will be 2-3 years of phenomenal diving and fishing followed by a lull of 1-8 years.
The key to success is knowing when and where to go and timing those cycles to be consistently successful is what our team has spent the last 15 years doing world wide .
We’ve had to look further to keep our passion for 200+lb Yellowfin Tunas alive,  and personally, I’ve been waiting for one spot in particular to turn on… That time is now. Last year was a banner year for a select group of lucky divers, this year is yours.
Here’s some video from Ascension Spearfishing
June 24-July 4 Ascension Island
10 days of diving Bluewater for 200+lb Yellowfin and 1000+lb Marlin. Dog Snappers to 35lbs, Wahoo, 100lb Sailfish, Bigeye Tunas, etc but YELLOWFIN and Record Marlin are the goal.
Schedule for Ascension Island Spearfishing Trip.
Last year during the June/July Tuna Season in Ascension was one of the best runs of 150-300lb Yellowfin Tuna in the World. So good in fact they were catching them with spinning rods from the beach crashing giant schools of bait!
  For 2014 I will be spending 25 days in Ascension,  come with me to enjoy some of the most radical diving in the world.
Giant Yellowfin Tuna, 1000+lb Blue Marlin,  the last two Dog Snapper World Records have come from here(over 30lbs!!!), Sailfish over 100lbs, Wahoo, Bigeye Tuna, and Amberjacks of epic proportions will be on hand for your ten days of diving.

There aren’t many places that are “off the map” anymore yet trips like this are the ones we live for. Finding that one spot that no one has ever heard of, with no commercial fishing pressure, beaches without footprints, locals that feel like family in only a few days, pelagics a stones throw from land, and the Fish of a Lifetime possible on every dive is why we go.
This is Ascension Island.
Join me, June 24- July 4 for the stuff of legend before the cycle ends. The time is right, the fish are there,  get your gear packed and land that fish you’ve been dreaming about.
