The quaint island of Lola is situated in the Western Province of the Solomon Islands, bordered by white sandy beaches, the clearest, vibrant, blue waters imaginable and coral reefs teeming with marine life. Unbeknown to most Australians, Lola is home to a fishing tournament attracting over 300 competitors: the annual Stunned Mullet competition, now in its eighth year. I was fortunate to attend the recent tournament and experience what has to be one of the most diverse, abundant and accessible fisheries in the Pacific.
