December 16, 2020
We went out for a half day trip for the first time this season since march due to the covid. We leave the lagoon at 7.30... about 30 minutes out we found a school of bonito and hooked 3 at first time. Caught all of them. The fish dived so we shifted to another school of bonito...no success. While heading to the south we had a strike on the central rigger lure. After 30 minutes of fight the marlin was in. We put back the lures and continued fishing. We then caught some more bonitoes...fight against a 20 pounds yellowfin but lost it. At about 11 a.m we had another strike of marlin on the short corner lure, a blue marlin came from nowhere and attacked the lure twice. The reel started to scream.....we quickly managed to take the other lines in. The marlin made a run of 400 meters then the hook came off. On the way back we caught some more bonitoes and were back with a marlin and 8 bonitoes

Went out for an afternoon trip. Few minutes after leaving the lagoon we saw a school of fish but no bite. We went through 3 to 4 schools of tuna and bonito but no success.

After one hour of fight the tuna was down behind the boat but did not wanted to come up. After few more minutes it starte coming up. Few meters from the boat the rod broke but we were able to bring it up and gaff it. We were back to the beach with 2 nice fish.
