Dorado- 1st Big Eye Tuna on Gran Canaria

Saturday 11th July 2009

Well I predicted a suprise for you last week and it came true in the way of BIGEYE TUNAS Although this is not our 1st Tuna of the Season as that was Caught in La Gomera THIS is our 1st Big Eye Tuna in Gran Canaria. Dorado boat hooked up with 2 out of the 4 strikes it had with bigeye. These beauties were the first to be caught this year by any charter boat in GRAN CANARIA. The lucky anglers were mike burgess who landed the first fish and friend Jon Dyson. Mike and John have fished with us for numerous years, and it is their first BIGEYE TUNA lets hope the tuna stay for a few weeks more and give more anglers the opportunity to fight these splendid specimens. well done lads keep the flags flying hight WEIGHT 72 KILOS and 66 KILOS for jon



MARLIN !

Saturday 11th July 2009

hooked up with a good size Marlin which ran out approx 500 metres of line befor shedding the hook It was our second raised blue marlin of the day the first came into the spread but showed no signs of being hungry enough to strike at the lures, At the moment the fish are full of mackerel and only curiousity entices them into the spread .good luck for tommorow with clients KEITH and ANITA MILLER



DORADO 2 BLUE MARLIN

Thursday 9th July 2009

After making 2nd place in the GOMERA competition the WADRUP FAMILY decided this year they would try their luck in the waters of Gran canaria.Only one of the family of 4anglers didnt catch so it was a no contest who would be in the hot seat CAROL WADRUP THE WIFE OF john. Carol although being a novice to big game fishing had seen many hook ups with BLUE MARLIN so the spectacular sight of seeing the fish air bourne only added to the thrill, but wait a minute CAROL would be fighting this one. Without hesitation she strapped herself into the harness and began the battle of wits with the magnificent specimen after a hectic fight CAROL had the fish alongside of the boat in under 30 mins. Although both arms were bruised from the fight CAROL rekoned it was one of the best moments in her fishing carrer. The fish was approx 280 to 300 kilos, bettering her husbands fish of 230kilos which JOHN had in the GOMERA TOURNAMENT THIS WAS carols SECOND blue marlin hook up of the day Well neal i hope you reading this as you were beaten last year by your son now its the sister in law and what a weight for you to beat (this is just a family rivalry feud) Well done girl and hopefully you will return next year and kick arse again The second BLUE MARLIN of the day was caught by bait and switch tactics which has to be the altimate in big game fishing where you raise the marlin and tease it to the stern of the boat by bringing the hookless lures in and let the marlin follow them to the back of the boat, then pitch them a dead bait 9 times out of ten they will swallow the bait for a hook up. We will be employing this method more often in the near future as the thrill of seeing these magnificent creatures in close up is an indescribable experience, but you must have an experienced crew fast enough to be one step in front of the marlin many a time ive had to yank the hookless lure out of there mouths and bring them to the boat well done to anglers and crew for making the day so pleasurable

THE BOAT RAISES-10 BLUE MARLIN

Tuesday 7th July 2009

DORADO BOAT RAISED 10 and used a different tactic.After so manyhookups the day before dorado reverted to bait and switch and coaxed 5 out of the 10 to the back of the boat where a dead bait was pitched to them lessthan 4 metres from the stern the fish were taking the bait and screaming off with it but not swallowing them. This was an awsome sight being so close to these magnificent creatures and looking them in the eye IT was dutch angler paul hoff with the rod in his hand and after this experiencehas vowed to try this method again The full moon this week has played havoc with the takes we are having (eating all night and being full of mackerel) with so many fish out there things will improve
