Black marlin, yellowfin and bonito

Trip Info


Started at 09h00 and went north for a change this time. Lot of rain and windy for the next three hours and no activity at the surface so we went to a nearby FAD and found lots of birds around. There we managed to catch seven yellowfin and three bonito and lost a few more. Customers were very happy as this was their first experience at sea. So we headed back slowly with a few lures at the back when suddenly at about 45minutes from the harbour the elastic on the short rigger snapped and that black marlin started jumping everywhere behind. After 30 minutes the fish was caught. Great day again on the Hooker 1.
