Puerto Rico Tournament

Sunday 31st July 2011

Competition time and our regulars Alan and Heather Rimmer charterd the boat for the 3 days being joined by Ged & Karen. Heather won this Tournament previously. The fishing was very slow the 1st day with one Release and Dorado raised a Blue Marlin of approx 200kilos/400lbs which struck on the long rigger taking several meters of line before throwing the hooks. Later that day the centre rigger clip was opened and line going with another Blue Marlin this one was billwrapped. What luck these 2 beauties could have definately taken us into 1st place on the 1st day of the tournament of which 38 boats had entered. Devastating Day had by all crew and clients.The Winning boats 1st , 2nd and 3rd are all private boats and we must congratulate Marlin on 1st place with 2 Marlin, Karelia 2nd place with 1 Marlin and Exodus 3rd place also with 1 Marlin.
We hope the Fishing improves in the next few days-



Blue Marlin Lost.

Wednesday 27th July 2011

Bad Luck Yesterday for our Client Peter Wilkinson as 3 hours into the trip we raised a Blue Marlin of 200kilos/400lbs. It came to the long Rigger and shadowed several lures before it faded into the depths. The Marlin are still very finicky. On the day we also found a shoal of big Dorados and the same scenario ( no Hook ups even though we tried live baiting for them).
Today Wednesday has been dead for all boats lets hope the Competition over the next 3 days fares better.



Fun Day - 150lbs Ray

Sunday 24th July 2011

Today we had a charter for bottom fishing with Lucas, Mick and son Jake. A good selection of fish was caught With the main catch for Lucas of a 150lbs Sting Ray and Jake and excellent Angelshark. A good day out was had by the trio. Next time don´t loose the speed boat(Ha Ha). Thanks for chartering the Dorado and see you next Year.
Photos to follow.
Tomorrow we are back to serious fishing for the Blue Marlin so keep on-line for the Big Game updates.



Blue Marlin

Saturday 23rd July 2011

Total of 6 Blue Marlin have been raised today between the Boats trolling with Dorado being one of the boats. The Marlin was definately a good size but failed to give a positive hook up.The fish are definately in the waters so watch this space! Bonito and Dorados are at present the main catches but if this food source is in the waters the Marlin will definately stay.



Big Blue Marlin 300k- 600lbs showing

Thursday 21st July 2011

The last Few days Has seen Marlin Raised and entering the spread. Today we raised a very Big Blue Marlin estimated at 300kilos/600lbs entering the spread and fading away. This was one of two Blue Marlin raised. As this week has progressed Dorado and Bonito have also shown for those wishing to use Light Tackle. During the forthcoming week we are hopeful that the Blue Marlin will be More active with positive strikes.



Dutch Angler Blue Marlin 150 kilo

Monday 18th July 2011

As we said at the weekend we are waiting for the blue Marlin to run through once again and true to form they didnt let us down. Experienced dutch angler Paul Hoff was the man in the hot seat and played the lively blue for 20 mins befor release. Paul has taken his tally of blue Marlin to well over 120 fish caught on the Dorado boat an acheivement to be proud of over the past few years, one special day we raised 10 blue marlin for him, there were 3 blue marlin raised yesterday, so things are on the up for this coming week, bonitos were also caught and there are some good size dorado to be had. Well done Paul and congratulations to the crew of Dorado, lets hope our luck continues for our clients.



Dorado top charter boat

Sunday 17th July 2011

As of late the Marlin fishing has been slow, but there are gamefish to be had with specimen Dorado and bonitos still making up the main catches, Spearfish are showing, as are some good size Hammerhead shark. Fingers crossed the Blue marlin will show in the forth coming week. Dorado boat tops the catch rate once again for the majestic Blue marlin, and has dominated the position of top boat for the past 10 of 11 years, do not be mislead. Bait and switch tactics should pay off if the Marlin prove to be finicky, and we offer this exciting tactical method to all our charter clients if so wished. good luck to all in pursuite of there dream fish



2 Blue Marlin, Dorados.

Sunday 10th July 2011

Fishing is still hard going with the odd Marlin , spearfish and bonito showing.Our Charter client on Friday was Mitchell from Birmingham and he had bad lick on his 1st Big Game experience. We Raised a Blue Marlin which came to the lures twice without hooking up. Sunday ( today) with regular repeat Charter clients Mike Burgess and friends was the same story only Todaywe hooked up briefly before it faded off only to come back and shadow the lures for a few minuets before sinking to the depths. One hour later we saw another Marlin feeding on the top. Dorado of 8/10 kilos were also raised to the lures.
2 Blue Marlin and No positive hookups, Bad Luck. One good thing the fish are starting to make an appearance after a slow week.



Spearfish, Wahoo, Bonitos.

Wahoo  - click to see more photos

Tuesday 5th July 2011

Over the last 3 days Trolling we raised 11 Spearfish (or as some boats like to call them White Marlin) but hook ups were difficult. Bonitos were caught everday with Angler Ralph Nordin from Sweden having 6 with a nice Wahoo and we also raised 3 Spearfish. Blue Marlin are being raised but once again a little hook shy. Hopefully the Bait shoals will decrease and strikes will turn into Hook Ups.
Thank you to Pierre for chartering Dorado, Sunday and Monday and Ralph for chartering today. SEE you on Thursday Ralph for that BIG Blue.



Cautious Marlin

Saturday 2nd July 2011

This Past week Plenty of Blue Marlin have been raised but hook ups have been slow. The fish are cautious and are slashing at the lures. Therefore the main action this week has been with the Bonitos which are plentiful and Wahoo.
