A sunny Atlantic Ocean, 27 degrees Celsius and a cool sea breeze and good catches
On the morning trip we missed unfortunately a hook up with a Blue Marlin.
Wolter Willink from Holland caught on this trip a big heavy Skipjack Tuna.
On the afternoon trip was a big Dorado captured and a heavy Spearfish released

The last fishing days we have not really luck with the catches
Not because the Marlins are suddenly disappeared, but with a lot of food in the water they are at the moment very difficult to catch
This afternoon we caught some Skipjacks so hopefully ............?

BLUE MARLIN FISHING CHARTERS - WEEKLY REVIEW
Today we can look back at a very successful fishing week.
Despite three fishing trips where no fish was caught remains the total very impressive.
The week began very succesfull on the boat CAVALIER with the catch and release of a 280 kilos Blue Marlin and two days later we released a second one of 340 kilos.
There were also caught this week 3 White Marlins.
A highlight was the capture of a Bigeye Tuna which had a weight of over 100 kilos.
Less weight were the three Albacore Tuna, but with 20 to 25 kilos each, still okay.
There were also caught 7 Dorado's and the largest of 13 kilos, has been caught today.
So we can look back at a very successful fishing week.

Tomorrow we have another day !!

BLUE MARLIN 340 KG BIGEYE TUNA 100 KG
Fisherman Edwin Woudenberg, better known as 'Pici Picu' was on its 4th fishing day again very successful.
Edwin caught previously this week a pretty big Albacore Tuna and a Dorado
After only one hour that the boat had left the harbor, they hooked up
A giant Blue Marlin had taken the lure of Edwins' rod and his reel ran off with a speed above which undoubtedly has located 90 kilometers per hour.
A small moment there was a slight panic, but soon was our Pici Picu in the fighting chair and could begin the fight.
Edwin needed an hour to land this huge Blue Marlin
The giant fish was estimated by the expert crew of the CAVALIER at a whopping 340 kilos.
Unbelievable what a GREAT catch.
The Blue Marlin was, after the photo session, released again ! ! !
Hardly were the lines back in the water when we had a second hook up.
The sound of a screaming reel hushed suddenly all conversations about Edwin his Blue Marlin.
Now it was the rod of the Dutch angler Wim Bakker.
Wim also for many years a client who is during each holiday 1 or 2 times is fishing with us could now take his place in the chair.
This time it was a tuna, and what kind of tuna ??
Wim caught a beautiful large Bigeye Tuna, estimated at over 100 kilo ! ! !
Crew, and Anglers Congratulations again! ! !

BLUE MARLIN 270 à 280 KILO
Well, well, well, we had another great day of fishing today.
It was Dave Kirpenstein from Holland which itself will remember this fishing day probably a long time.
Dave fished on the CAVALIER and caught in his first half hour a big Skipjack Tuna.
When his fishing day was barely two hours old, a big school with Albacore Tuna was found.
A great sport on the lighter rods.
Dave landed 2 of these fighters with a weight of 25 kilos each.
At 12 p.m the CAVALIER hooked up again.
A huge Blue Marlin had taken one of the lures.
It was quite a fight but Dave was again the winner and after a 45 minutes fight he released his first Blue Marlin, estimated by the crew on a weight of 270 to 280 kilos.
It was also for the boat Cavalier the first released Blue Marlin of the Big Game Season 2013.
Edwin Woudenberg today started this morning also his first vacation / fishing day and also he caught a beautiful, almost 30 kilo Albacore.

BIG GAME FEVER
Yesterday there has been caught, by a sport fishing boat from Puerto Rico, a large Yellowfin Tuna with a weight of 87 kilos.
The comercial boats even mentions catches of 3000 and more kilos of Albacore Tuna.
The Cavalier found today also a large school with Albacore Tuna, which had unfortunately no any interest in our lures.
Also a White Marlin was seen behind the lures
On the radio we heard a report of a hook up with a Blue Marlin.
So plenty of action, but unfortunately no hook ups and releases
Satisfied after all these exciting moments we returned at 15 pm to the harbor with some big Skipjacks.
Tomorrow we have another day!

SKIPJACKS & MARLIN
This 1st day of May we can see as the opening of the big game season 2013.
The Atlantic Ocean, in the south of Gran Canaria, is completely full with large Skipjack Tuna with weights ranging from 4 to well over 15 lbs.
And every big gamer knows what that means!!!!
The Cavalier was chartered today by Wim Moens who enjoyed together with his young daughter of a fantastic day of fishing.
They caught 12 large Skipjacks.
Today, there has been also a Blue Marlin caught by one of the other fishing boats from Puerto Rico.
The estimated 550 lbs fish was tagged and released.
This catch we can certainly see as the opening of the big game season of 2013. (May - September)
Congratulations to crew and angler !!!
