Nice Day Out
December 07, 2014 Le Morne 3 Photos
We went out at 7a.m for a half day of fishing with Mr Derek and family. Weather was sunny and fine to fight a big fish. After 45 mins out we found the first school of bonito. We were able to catch 4 bonitos and as they were the perfect size for live bait, we used two of them and started trolling slower speed for marlins and sharks. We went trolling were 2 days before we lost 2 marlins on artificial lures, saying that today if they bite it will be completely different. After 3 hours one of the bonitos was cut by a baby shark... When taking the bonito back we saw about 2 dorados following the bonito, so we just used pieces of bonitos as bait and we were able to catch one of them. A dorado of about 20 pounds. Mr Derek had a nice fight. Then we went back trolling with artificial lures and it was already time to go back home.. We finished the day with 4 bonitos, no 3 and a half bonito and a nice and beautiful dorado.

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

We went out for a full day plus trip. Once out we headed to a spot where tuna were bitting the previous day. Few minutes out another boat informed us that they saw a school of fish. We started moving south. We met a first school of bonito, no bite. We saw another school some distance out. It was a school of tuna and dolphins were on the spot too. First time we went through bang the line situated on the central rigger was going out. The fight last 30mins and the yellowfin tuna was in.
