Dorado 2 Blue Marlin up
Monday 31st August 2009
Well after a dissapointing Competition with only 3 Blue Marlin caught by 37 boats in 3 days after a days rest we resumed Big Game fishing today and yes Dorado raised 2 Blue Marlin.
Hooking up with one only for the Gremlins to rear their ugly head . This Blue Marlin took the Lure in full view and then the line snagged on the wind on leader swivel and with an almighty crack the fish was gone.
Later Blue Marlin number 2 was raised in the spread but failed to hook up.
Well thats fishing folks and tomorrow is another day.
On reports heard today Dorado was the only boat to Raise Blue Marlin today.

The Pasito Blanco Tournament this year unfortunately turned out to be a lottery with only 3 Blue Marlin and 1 Tuna being Caught by 37 boats.
Well done to Eduardo and Crew winning with the catch and release of their 1 blue Marlin of approx 200kilos.
Although this Season has produced some excellent fishing this last week has been unusually quiet for the Big Fish so Lets hope a new run of Blue Marlin come through this week to make up for the disapointing fishing all competitors endured during the last 3 days tournament.
Tight lines for the forthcoming weeks fishing.
DORADO - WAHOO
Tuesday 25th August 2009
Due to the last few days being slow for the Blue Marlin we edged our bets for our charter clients today and fished in approx 75 fathoms giving us the chance of Marlin, wahoo and bonito tuna or Dorado. The clients Today were Trevor Pocklington with sister Sarah from Canada and Sarah´s boyfriend Tom from the Uk. The clients agreed our stratergy and were rewarded with a wahoo of 15kilos/30lbs. No boats caught Blue Marlin today so our clients were delighted in catching their 1st ever Big Game fish Wahoo.
Lets hope the Marlin start to move again this week for the Pasito Blanco Tournament on Thursday - Friday and Saturday.Maybe a new run of fish will come through - keeping our fingers crossed.
Thank you for your Custom Trevor and hope you enjoy the rest of your holiday on Gran Canaria.
Dorado hooked Blue Marlin
Saturday 22nd August 2009
The last few days has been hard fishing for all the boats trolling But we are still Raising Blue Marlin without hook ups - Thats Fishing Folks!
Today Saturday was a different story with a hook up of a Blue Marlin on Swedish Ingamar´s son in laws Rod. This blue marlin ran off over 50meters of line before throwing the Hook . Bad luck for this swedish angler.
On wednesday we did an afternoon trip with the Rimmer Party and friends for a fun afternoon and we got it with Alan Rimmer entertaining all on board hooking into a very Large Ray first . Then he was playing a very strong heavy fish caught on live bait only to tangle up with a stingray already hooked and being played and you guessed it both lines cut through. Later he went on to play a heafty Barracuda. Dennis Stolwijk from Holland caught and released a 90kilos / 200lbs Stingray- photos on photo gallery.
Fun afternoon had by all on board.
THE BLUE MARLIN at the moment are very finicky although today showing and hooking up - lets see what next weeks fishing has in store!

Congratulations to Sejourne Dominique From Saint Etienne De Montluc France who chratered the Dorado Boat and they came up with the goods. Marlin Number 1 hooked - Angler in the chair and 5/10mins into the Play line goes slack and fish gone. Bad Luck for all concerned. Not disheartened they proceeded to raise 3 more Blue Marlin before a 2nd hook up and this one was well and truly hooked, angler crew set into action to get this BEAUTY to the boat in good condition. Well done to Angler who played this fish for approx 18mins and the 160kilos/350lbs Blue Marlin was caught and Realeased. A further 3 Blue Marlin were sighted feeding on top but none came to the lures. Well done to Dorado Crew Roberto and Paul for making a dream come true for Dominique Sejourne from France.
Also Tuna Today were sighted on 2 occasions but with no results.
