Monday 30th August 2010

Today we hooked up with 2 Blue Marlin losing one after a few minuets . It came twice to the Lure before screaming off and shaking the Hooks free. All was not Lost for Swedish Angler Alexander Sandberg who hooked into a Good specimen which took the short rigger Lure ( Black bart) . He brought the fish to the boat 6 Times before it sounded. Roberto identified the problem the 2nd time to the boat it was tail wrapped. After a Cruelling Long Fight of 1 hour 45 minuets Alex a Divisional Manager at the Phone House in Stockholm locked on and the fish came up DEAD.On weighing the fish it tipped the scales at 360 kilos / 804 lbs. It was Alex´s first Blue Marlin and to see the EXTACTIC look on his and Girlfriend Louise Viman faces Said it all. HIS 1st Blue Marlin and what a fine Specimen of 360 kilos. SO a VERY WELL DONE to all on board. Today Dorado has produced its 6th Marlin over 300 kilos and a monster of 420 kilos WOW! Photos will be updated later today.

Day1 Pasito Big Game Tournament

Thursday 26th August 2010

After a slow week for Blue Marlin, the fishing was excellent today the 1st of 3days of Pasito Blanco Tournament. The Captain Roberto decided to rig dead baits for 2 hours due to how fickle the takes were during the past week. We went back to traditional trolling after a raised a Blue Marlin which took line only to fade. 2 minuets later it returned and Angler Sam Kapleta from Panama South America was on his way to the chair with rod when all went limp. 40 minuets later a 2nd Blue Marlin charged the same Long riogger lure but never Struck. To entice it we slipped a dead bait alonside it but the Marlin only slashed at it before disapearing into the depths.Some 30 minuets later we raised Marlin number 3 but unfortunately with the same outcome. What Luck thats fishing! All in over 20 strikes of Blue Marlin today by the competing boats with 2 boats sharing lead with 2 Marlin released each and 7 boats with 1 marlin release each. Lets hope Tomorrow fishes as well for all clients.



The Blue Marlin that got away

Wednesday 25th August 2010

Bad Luck Today for our clients after a Blue Marlin took Short Rigger Lure and ran off 20 meters of line before sheding the Hook. 2 Minuets later she reappeared to slash at the same lure only to be bill wrapped once again sheding the hooks. (Thats fishing Big Game Style). On a brighter note the women and juniors caught Bonitos and melbas. Once again Paul Lowrey from Cumbria took the Honours with the most caught.
Tomorrow is the 1st day of the Pasito Blanco Tournament which we have previously won so fingers crossed for our clients. Good Luck to all Competing as fishing is unfortunately Patchy and I think 1st to hook up may be in with a good chance of winning! But who knows when this Full moon subsides what might happen as Fishing is Fishing!

Saturday 21st August 2010

Last 4days for the Blue Marlin has been patchey for all boats although Today a few more have been raised, Wednesday we Raised a Spearfish that was not interested. Bonitos make up the bulk of the catch Rate with the odd Dorado. Charter Clients Paul Weston,Friend and wives would have loved to have experienced a Blue Marlin but fully understand that sometimes you have to settle for the smaller fish. This is sign of a True Fisherman. The Crew and Staff would like to Thank you for chartering the Dorado.

Tuesday 17th August 2010

The Captain Roberto ventured into deeper water today even though there were plenty of small bonito in the shallows. The logic being find the Big Hungry one! This Tactic paid off for Angler Dave Margerison From Preston England. Dave a Male Nurse from the Priory in Preston fought the fish for 20/25 minuets. This Beauty struck on the Short rigger line first and threw the hook after pulling the line from the clip, BAD LUCK for David Walkerr whos lure went Airbourne as the Marlin failed to HOOK up. After a minuet or so the fish returned to the centre Rigger and hooked up this Time giving Dave Margerison the LUCK. Small lures seem to be the order of the day so we are keeping switching sizes. WELL done To Dave and all on board today in helping Dreams come True.



Bonito Tuna

Monday 16th August 2010

Quieter today we only raised a Spearfish but caught some specimen Bonito ( skipjack) Tuna. Best was caught by Srefan Busman from Holland who booked with his family.
