Happy H. :0/1 + 1 raised, Calu 0/2 and caught a yellowfin.
We raised 2 out of Peter caught
a 350 pounder on standup 80.
We raised one in the north that
didn´t switch to the bait.
Happy H. 2 had a doubleheader
in the south and caught one out of them.
We didn´t fish today and
the other two boats that fished had nothing.
On the last day of our clients
we spend half a day in the channel of Sao Vicente but we couldn´t
find anything and went in the Habour.
Calu caught 2 in Sao Antao and
Bebiche lost 1 I think.
The Happy Hookers were not so
happy and saw nothing in the south.
We went back to Sao Antao and
raised one marlin on the Super Plunger but it didn´t switch. I
don´t know about the others that day.
We spend the morning still in
Sao Antao but the fish were gone and we moved back to Mindelo after
Calu had 3 bites and bebiche
had 1 further west.
We spend most of our time
trying to catch a wahoo because our clients wanted it but on our way
to the bank of Noreste we caught two marlin around 300 pounds. We
couldn´t find any wahoos and we heared from the other boats
that the fishing went of where we were yesterday. We went back but
the bite was already over.
The others !!! :Happy Hooker
:1/5 plus 5 raised, H.H. 2 :0/2, Bebiche :3/8, Calu ?
We went to Sao Antao today and
good action ! We caught 4 out of six bites and raised anotherone
.Most of them were teased to the boat with the Bart Super Plunger.
The fish were between 200 and 500 pounds.
We Did Bait and switch today
and the first thing we raised was a doubleheader but only one a 400
pounder switched and Thomas caught his firtst blue marlin. Later we
raised a 300 pounder on the “Baselisk” and Andreas
caught it also on standup 80 tackle .
The others : Bebiche 0/1 ,
Happy H. :1/3 , H.H. 2 : 1/3 , Calu : 1/3
We didn´t fish today !
The others :Bebiche : 2/4 ,
Happy H.: 4/6 , Calu : 0/2
Back in the south we had a bite
already at 8.45 on the “Super Pro Jet” from Bart but the
fish came off. Then it was quiet for us for a while . Finally we
raised one fish that didn´t switch to our rubbersquid but the
next one did and we (Peter) nearly caught it but the windonleader was
unfortunately not at the rodtip when the leader broke as we found out
in the evening on the videotape (Sorry Peter !)
Just before it happend !
We fished Lures again for the
rest of the day and had another bite on the Abaco Prowler but it also
pulled off. We wanted to go home in a pretty disappointed mood
already as we got a bite on the Long Left and while I was bringing
the other Lures in another one took the long right and we got both of
them. Peter had his 400 pounder quick and I took the hooks out while
we were backing down towards Uwes 550 pounder.
A good end made our day !
The others :Bebiche 2/3,Happy
H.1 :2/4 plus a couple raised,H . H. 2 :2/8, and Calu 0/6 !
Everybody fished in the south
today and we saw a lot of action !
First we caught a doubleheader
! Uwe brought the first fish (350) on 80 pound line to the boat and
after that Peter jumped in the chair and caught the 450 pounder that
eat the “Andromeda”.
Than we missed a 300 on a
W.Range .A bit later Uwe caught a 550 pounder and it eat the
“Andromeda” again !
Later we missed two more fish
on W.Ranges. So 3/6 for us.The others :Bebiche :4/5 (1 about 750)
,Happy H. :1/1, Happy H. 2 : 2/7 including 1 about 850 pounds, Calu :
1/3 ( The boat is called NHA CRETCHEU)
Peter and Uwe in a good mood !
We fished in the north again
and we had a good day !
First Uwe caught a 700 pounder
,his biggest fish so far ,then we raised a small fish on our bridge
teaser and in the afternoon Peter caught one about 400 pounds. Both
fish were caught on the “Andromeda”(Legendlures) .
The others :Bebiche :3/5 (in
the south!),Happy H. :0/1 , Happy H.2:Nada , Calu :Nada
In the morning we got radio
contact to one of the other boats and they told us that
everybody is in the north again so we went straight there and as we
arrived there were a couple fish seen already . We had one knockdown
of something nobody ever saw and then we hooked a 500 pounder that
Peter caught after having a intense saltwater shower .The other boats
:Bebiche 1/3 ,Calu 2/ ,Happy Hooker 1/1 ,H.H 2 :0/1
Strong wind stopped us from
going to the north again so we tried the south but it was very quiet
In the afternoon we went to the
island of Sao Antao wich has a leeside like Madeira or la gomera but
we couldn´t find anything there either. There was only one more
boat fishing ( Happy Hooker ) and they had one bite in the south.
There were still lots of fish
in the north today !
First we raised a doubleheader
trying to “Bait and switch” but it was just too rough
with white water everywere and too much rolling. The fish didn´t
switch so we decided to change to Lures.
We got 5 more bites out of wich
Peter caught a 300 pounder and Uwe got a 250 !
A wild one !!!
The other boats had the
following results : Bebiche: 2/5 ,Happy Hooker I :0/1 ,H.H II :0/2,
Calu (I can´t spell the
name of the boat) :1/2
We didn´t fish today but
the others had some good action in the north of the island again !
5 blue marlin were caught
including one that Berno called a possible grander 111 Another 3
bites were reported.
We will be out there tomorrow
again and hope to see something similar !
We started fishing on Friday
the 22nd but had to come in early because of fuel problems.
The second day we fished in the
north of the island but only had one wahoobite on our teaser.
The other boats didn´t
have much action either so we decided to move to the island of Sao
Nicolau . We trolled there so it took us until the evening to get to
the fishinggrounds .As we arrived “Bebiche” already had
two bites from wich they caught a 450 pounder. We raised one about
350 on the Zulu from Bart but it didn´t switch.
The next day we also raised one
with the same result and Bebiche went ½ again.
Tuesday the 26th we
first raised one on the bridgeteaser . Than we missed two fish on the
“RPP” and finally caught one about 150 pounds on Roddy´s
Today we spend most of our time
travelling back to Mindelo and caught a wahoo on the way .
As we arrived in the north of
Sao Vicente most of the boats already had bites or caught fish.
It was the first day for a
while that they had good action in our normal fishing grounds close
to Mindelo .
We had to go in early because
Juergen and Alex had to leave but just before going in we missed a
350 pounder wich was billrapped on the Blue Breakfast.
Until we went in 3 fish have
been caught and another 4 bites were called within the three other
boats so I hope that is the start of the topseason now !!!
