Western Samoa
Section Jump
Samoa, officially the Independent State of Samoa (formerly known as Western Samoa), is a country governing the western part of the Samoan Islands in the South Pacific Ocean. It became independent from New Zealand in 1962. The two main islands of Samoa are Upolu and one of the biggest islands in Polynesia Savai'i. The capital city Apia and Faleolo International Airport are situated on the island of Upolu. The entire island group, inclusive of American Samoa, was called Navigators Islands by European explorers before the 20th century because of the Samoans' seafaring skillsThe country is located east of the international date line and south of the equator, about halfway between Hawaii and New Zealand in the Polynesian region of the Pacific Ocean. The total land area is just under 3000 sq kms consisting of the two large islands of Upolu and Savaii that account for 99% of the total land area, and eight small islets: the three islets in the Apolima Strait (Manono Island, Apolima and Nu`ulopa), the four Aleipata Islands off the eastern end of Upolu (Nu`utele, Nu`ulua, Namua, and Fanuatapu), and Nu`usafe`e (less than 2.5 acres - in area and about 1.4 km (0.9 mi) off the south coast of Upolu at the village of Vaovai). The main island of Upolu is home to nearly three-quarters of Samoa's population, and its capital city is Apia. Savai'i is the largest of the Samoan islands and the sixth largest Polynesian island.

The climate is equatorial/monsoonal, with an average annual temperature of 26.5C and a rainy season from November to April.

Fishing Samoa's South Side

Article
Over the years I have had the pleasure of fishing in Samoa many times, and generally the results have been good. On some of those occasions I've fished the more exposed south side of Upolo Island with some great catches. Unfortunately, most of my trips to Samoa have been based out of the main port of Apia, where getting around to the south side in a day has been something of a 'mission impossible'...
