Saturday 21st May 2011
Trolling this week has produced mainly Wahoo and Ian Smale from Essex England has finished the week with one of these toothy critters, a Wahoo of 17 kilos/ 37lbs. This week has proved a challenge with the Game fishing with no Marlin Showing.

On Scheduling bottom fishing today OUR clients asked if they could do some trolling, that was the magic word to our crew and True to form we raised them a Blue Marlin. The Words echoed around the Boat, Marlin, Marlin ,the line screaming off , thrilling Jumps witnessed by the clients as they cleared the other lines and then that dreaded silence ,the fish was gone.

Very bad luck it´s Friday the 13th what a day for our client John williamson who was on tender hooks watching spearfish striking at the lures after entering the spread. John did manage to play one although only for a few minutes befor every thing went slack, bad luck my friend. The billfish are moving now so maybe the forthcoming week will yield dividends for those who decide to troll. good luck to all the boats looking for there 1st blue marlin. Lets hope we can add a 3rd to our tally of blue marlin.

BLUE MARLIN 305 kilos - 680lbs DUTCH ANGLER
Friday 6th May 2011
First day back in water after Dry Dock and Captain Roberto decided there was enough bait fish to go Trolling and we came up Trumps for Dutch Angler Gijs Disselhurst from Heeten Holland aged 15 years.The Marlin thrilled all with a sequence of spectacular jumps then turning and Charging towards the Boat with such furocity the fish dived to the depths and sadly sounded and died. This Gave young Gijs a battle and a half on his hands to raise it from the depths. With encouragement from the Crew, Family, other Anglers especially the American Lasses, Gijs battled on for 50 minuets and achieved bringing this 305 kilos/ 680lbs Blue Marlin to the Boat. Officially weighed at 305 kilos. To round off the trip 3 American Ladies took control of the boat bringing Dorado back to the harbour. Take Care if you see these American Beauties about they are good for a GREAT LAUGH BUT dont take prisoners! To all our clients today Enjoy the rest of your Holidays and a special congratulations To Young Angler Gijs. NO GAFS USED AT ANYTIME THE FISH DIED IN PLAY UNFORTUNATELY.
