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.



Pasito Lottery

Sunday 30th August 2009

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.

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.
