They have been hunting for Marlin and other deep sea pelagic creatures ever since! The boat’s record for Blue Marlin is almost 1,000 lbs. You can join Capt. Ludovic for kayak game fishing, as well. He also arranges game fishing charters aboard Diamond Sea, a local vessel captained by his dear friend Byzo.

Die Qualität der Angeln war einfach schlecht bei einer Rute fehlten 2 Ringe. Die Eingesetzten wobbler waren einfachste Qualität. Ich musste meinen ersetzten für 10.00. nur der Tour Führer selbst hatte eine Treibanker. Es gab keine Snacks und die Getränke waren sehr überschaubar Wasser und Sprit welches auch noch nach der dritten Flasche fertig war. Der Preis von 175€ ist durch nichts gerechtfertigt.Die Kanu verfügen über kein Steuersytem sind alt und einfach.

Sory to say, but you were too old and unfit for kayak fishing. You couldnt even step back on your kayak, which was actually a Lure 11.5 from feelfree (latest and stable kayak). Had to tow your kayak from mine to the next jetty. Myself paddling and pulling also your weight as you were grabbing. You couldnt even swim.  Thanks God we were not offshore..
Trip had to be done today inshore, as wind speed was exeeding 30km/h.
Stubborn and didnt listen to captain when he said ‘dont go on the reef’.
Result - You capsized, lost a new lure (‘twitching lure’ at 15€) which u left standing on the kayak(charged you 12€ only). Lost your hat and probably other little things.
Reel was immerged several times. (Which now need a full servicing)
Equipment used by Mr.Juergen :
Rod - shimano nexave (missing 2rings inbetween the others). But still castable.
Reel - penn spinfisherV 3500 (5months old)
Braid - JBraid 30lbs (1month old)
Leader - Yozuri fuorocarbon 25lbs (new)
Lure - Duo pencil realis (1 year old and still catching)
Mr.Juergen got a ‘Batardet’ around 2lbs.
And some little groupers which were released.

Frank, your friend was on his side a gentleman and told me he enjoyed the trip even he didnt get any fish.

I got on my side a little bluefin trevally. And missed another one.

Next time, rent a proper fishing vessel.

Anyway, i do not recomend you to my collegues as customer.
