With a bittersweet taste in the mouth
July 5, 2016
Do you know those times when it is with a bittersweet taste in the mouth ??? We are still digesting the situation of the last week with a marlin captured by our friend Tom Ricci. In our attempt to preserve the species we practiced the usual "catch & release" so far everything is normal ... only that this release treated is a large white marlin copy (the identification was not easy) because we judge to be a small blue marlin of about 100 kg ( 220 pond ),we really find it strange appear a blue marlin this time of year around here, but nature never ceases to amaze us ... The surprise of the trip started as soon 20 min. after being at sea with a spearfish on the lines ... barely knew us that 10 min. after the capture of rare and beautiful spearfish would catch this !!! It is certainly the largest white marlin caught in the Azores so far, and" off record " was confided to us that possibly we had in hand a world record of white marlin ... left us with the consolation of liberation and joy that gave the fight, as well as the doubts that will be with us for some time. Azores in its best !!!

The day could have been more perfect at the very end, as the way to the Ponta Delgada harbour and after having seen some well-known activity in the waters we head Rabão vessel there because it could be a school of atlantico bonitos that had risen to the surface ... was much more than that in a matter of seconds one of our 30 lbs reels lose the entire line that broke with a strong flick after a bluefin tuna have sent a big bite the small lure !!!
