A littel quieter today

Friday 17th August 2007

After a good week of at least 6/8 blue marlin being raised each day today proved to be the day the fish decided to sleep. 2 Blue marlin were raised today and one private boat brought in a good size Blue Marlin of 290 kilos/648 lbs this yet again was played by a women angler therfore it must be the week for the ldaies.
On an afternoon trip another boat had a Blue Marlin which was reportedly tagged and released !
I want to wish Both Martin on cavalier and Kim on board the Dorado tomorrow(saturday) very TIGHT LINES:



BLUE MARLIN DAY FOR BOTH BOATS.

Thursday 16th August 2007

WOW what a day. LADIES DAY ON BOARD DORADO BOAT.
Dorado boat today hooked into 3 Blue Marlin
I decided to book myself onto the boat today as this week it has been fishing so well. Yes my luck was in The Blue marlin surged at my lure and was running nicely, other anglers on board were clearing their lines ,I was in the chair and suddenly the line goes slack Yes you guessed it the fish was gone and I thought that was my luck for the day gone also. Well approx 35/40mins later we raised yet another Blue Marlin and this time it took again on my rod. The line was screaming off the fish went with such force I was eventually left with the rod and reel in front of me with very little line left on. Daunting though the thought of all that line out I battled on to retrieve the fish. Other clients on board saw more spectacular jumps from this Marlin as it gave a fantastic fight almost to the end but then the fish seemed to go lifeless and as it was brought to the boat the fish was well passed any revival even though we tried and therefore the Marlin was boated. I played the fish for approx 30/40mins and todate even though I have played a much Bigger Blue Marlin this proved to be my hardest battle yet. ( maybe its because I am getting older who knows!) Well the fish was donanted to Tasarte and it was estimated at 200/220 Kilos (450lbs approx). The day was not over Yet we put the lines in the Water yet again and off we set and yes We hooked into another Blue Marlin and this was yet another ladies rod Vixtova Lenra from Checz republic. This fish was played to Tag & release in approx 20mins and was estimated at 100kilos. WELL DONE:Angler and Crew of Dorado.
Well CAVALIER was not to be left out Today as my charter Client Martin Roberts who fishes with our boats every year had a blue Marlin of approx 100kilos/223lbs. MARTIN who is an expert in Light line fishing had this nice Blue Marlin that was tagged and released on 30lbs stand-up.
Martin has a further 3 days charter with us so Come on Martin lets have an even Bigger Blue Marlin on that light Tackle.
CONGRATULATIONS Martin and also the expert crew of Cavalier Hafed and Abraham.
Not many boats hear in the canaries have the expetise that both Cavalier and Dorado have to accommodate anglers who wish to fish on Light Line.
Today saw 7/8 Blue Marlin being Raised so the fishing is excellent this week.
Tight Lines for Friday Boys.

BLUE MARLIN TODAY

Saturday 11th August 2007

Well Dorado boat yet again today has raised billfish with only one other boat having a contact. Yes they raised a Blue Marlin of approx 150kilos. The Fish came to the lure billed it and retreated. Then the fish came up again and went to the lures for the 2nd time. This time we were hoping it would take but yet again the fish retreated and then we raised it for a 3rd time and it just sat behind the lure.
Very disappointing but thats fishing folks and if they are not hungry we cant make them eat.
We can assure you that all the lures are the business as they are well tried and tested and have resulted in many spectacular catches.
Charter Client Chris Withey was well pleased with seeing the Blue Marlin and enjoyed the excitement of the fish to and throwing between the lures.
THATS fishing Folks ! but the billfish are definately on the move again.
