Sunday 25th April 2010

Today We went trolling for the Blue Marlin with a group of Anglers. Raising a Blue Marlin 4 Times this beauty frustratingly slashed repeatedly at the lures before fading away and even with Captain Robertos skills could not raise him again. Nice spectacle for all to see but dissapointment with no resulting hook ups. Bad Luck Lads maybe later this coming week we can try again.

2 Blue Marlin  - click to see more photos

Friday 23rd April 2010

After being in Dry dock for several Days due to yearly maintenance + painting Dorado took to the water with vengance. The Dorado Boat has once again achieved the 1st Blue Marlin of the Big Game Season. But in 2010 we have not only had the 1st but went on to catch Number 2. Number 1 was 200kilos /447lbs and the 2nd which was Released was estimated at 180kilos/402lbs this has extended their awesome record of producing the 1st Marlin of the Season to 10 out of 11years ,In all today Dorado Raised 4 Blue Marlin and 1 Spearfish. It was not Easy out there though because the fish were very finicky slashing at the lures and not taking. After stopping the boat several times and then gunning the engine when the Marlin aproached the lures 2 of the Marlins made the mistake of actually mouthing them and resulted in hook ups proving the captains skills for Big Game fishing. Eric a very accomplished angler from Austria was amazed at the action and brought the 1st Blue Marlin of the 2010 Season alongside in 20 minuets. One hour Later Eric was battling with Number 2 Blue Marlin and this was alongside in no time and Released in good condition.
What More can we Say if you want to catch that Dream Fish join us on board DORADO. Fish with the professionals and get more Marlin for your Money you know it makes sense.
Our Record Catches speak for themselves! WELL DONE to Roberto , David and special thanks to Eric for chartering.
Tomorrow we will be bottom fishing BUT keep watching the news.
