BLUE MARLIN

Sunday 26th June 2011

Bad Luck today for our anglers raising a Blue Marlin 6 times to the lures BUt it did not hook up. The fish was estimatied at approx 250 kilos so a reasonable size as many Marlin over the past couple of weeks have been around the 100/150kilos mark what we would class as Small Marlin.
Still Marlin showing although difficult to catch BUT as we all know everyday is Different so lets look forward to next week fishing.



Bonitos

Friday 24th June 2011

After the succes of the Blue Marlin catch on Tuesday the Marlin are still a little cautious. We raised 2 up on the short rigger but with no Hook Ups and yesterday saw Marlin on the top although we did not hook up.
Bonitos have been the main catches over the last 2 days for us.
Today Friday incredably after the showing of Marlin over the past few days Not one Boat has had a take - Thats Big Game fishing Every Day different.



BLUE MARLIN for Eric

Tuesday 21st June 2011

Today we worked the bait shoals. Fish were raised but the same senario Marlin were entering the spread following the lures BUT not Striking. Deciding to leave the area and try to find the odd Hungry one that had not gorged on the bait shoals. We sighted birds in one area that were not behaving as normal and on arrival at the scene we sighted a Blue Marlin feeding on the top. WE circled and it struck at the long rigger hard enough to give us a hook hold. Eric fought the fish for 20 minuets. This is Eric 28th Blue Marlin whilst fishing with Dorado. I hour later after catching some good bonitos a 2nd Blue Marlin was raised but did not hook up.
Congratulations to Eric.



Austrian Eric returns.

Monday 20th June 2011

Today Eric from Austria and his Friends had a day of losing fish in the play with 1 Wahoo and 6 Bonitos. Even the Marlin did not want to play today coming up and taking short and not hooking up properly. WEll Eric Tomorrows another Day and with your Lucky lines in the Water I am sure that you will get that BLUE MARLIN and whos knows maybe tomorrow.



2 BLUE MARLIN

Sunday 19th June 2011

Friday no fishing due to paperwork in Las Palmas. saturday was slow but a few Blue marlin were raised. Sunday, bad luck for our anglers Trevor Pocklington and his father, Trevor arranged the trip for a fathers day suprise, After an hour we raised aBlue Marlin of 100 kilos, only for it to fade after shadowing the lures for a few minutes, 2hrs later A second fish of 200 kilos appeared in the spread, this one struck the long left and pulled the clip taking several metres of line, it then dropped back and came again this time it pulled the clip of the centre rigger and once again took line before fading, It looks like the fish are taking short due to the amount of bait and bonitos showing, We think by the way they are taking and fading they must be full, We did catch them some bonitos so all was not lost, we thank Trevor for arranging the trip for his father, Lets see if the fish are hungrier tommorow,

Monday 13th June 2011

Great day for our anglers Gerrard and John from Cumbria although we had bad luck we still managed to catch a blue marlin for them. In total we raised 3 blue Marlin. The 1st one went berserk crashing at the lures and pulling all of the lines out of the clips (5 in all ) before taking to the air and stripping 50 metres of line and threw the hooks. 40 minutes later another Blue of 2oo kilos shadowed the centre lure but faded off after a short while more bad luck. 1 hr later we had a positive hook up HURRAY, The fish took to the air and stayed on the surface, giving our clients a spectacular aerobatic display. Gerrard played the fish for 15 mins before Tag & Release. Well done to Roberto for putting our clients on to fish he certainly has the Midas touch lately.
