Alfreds Fishing Charter Samoa

Alfred Schwalger

Born into a fishing family, Tuatagaloa Alfred Schwalger has been a dedicated fisherman for the best part of half a century. He is also President of the Samoan International Game Fishing Association a position that highlights his ongoing commitment to the sport and game fishing community here in Samoa.

At one point in his fishing life Alfred was considered the best ‘surf caster’ in Samoa. Chasing GT’s around Samoa’s many reefs was once his passion until he took up deep sea fishing some 20 years ago. After resigning from his position as General Manager of the Development Bank of Samoa in 1991, he decided to pursue a career as a ‘fishing charter operator’. He is now openly endorsed by his peers as one of the best skippers for charter fishing in the south pacific.

The Boat

Kingfisher II

Our new boat “Kingfisher II”, is an 8 meter offshore fishing vessel custom built for us in New Zealand and imported into Samoa exclusively for our private charters. The boat is well set up for game fishing featuring modern Raymarine electronics, a powerful 225 horsepower Honda 4 stroke outboard and excellent gear. We’ve managed to engage some huge fish with this boat and it has never failed to step up to the plate when the pressure is on and precision and power is required. It features a very efficient hull, ensuring an extra soft, safe and comfortable ride.

The Gear

The Kingfisher II is well equipped with excellent pro gear including:

2 x Shimano Tiagra 50′s
5 x Shimano Tiagra 80′s
2 x Shimano Tyrnos
2 x Penn Spinfisher V

2 x 60kg Rods
