Roberta  Davis     email: 
Roberta Davis and Capt. John Llanes Jr. discovered a paradise of their own on the island of Taveuni, Fiji. Their new enterprise, Makaira by the Sea, is not only a beautiful place to visit, it retains its age-old island flavor and has untapped fishing stocks. Wow! We are looking forward to lots more unique and exciting fishing adventures from their South Pacific hideaway.
