Covid 19

Play Doctor!

Due to the COVID 19 virus, all our fishing trips are suspended indefinitely.

As of March 15, the Spanish government has decided to impose severe restrictions on the entire country, which of course includes the Canary Islands.

Since Friday, all schools and government agencies, all sporting events, attractions, playgrounds, libraries…. already closed.
As of today March 15, all tourist excursions on land and water are now no longer allowed.
Restaurants, terraces, bars, pubs, discos and most of the shops are closed as of today.
The airport at Las Palmas also has only minimal inbound and outbound flights.
Residents may only leave their home when this is really necessary.
The Supermarkets and Pharmacies will remain open

The following is permitted:

a: Shopping at the supermarket or pharmacy
b: Pin money at the bank
c: Refuel
d: Informal care

Violation of the above is punishable by fines that can amount to very high amounts.
The above applies in any case for the next two weeks.

In the next 2 weeks I will most likely not reach my daily 10,000 steps unless I walk back and forth 625 times in my living room.

So we will spend our days here with my beloved games Monopoly and Play Doctor. The latter was one of my favorite games over 60 years ago.
Despite the fact that I now only have one patient, I will certainly handle this very carefully and economically.

Take care of yourself and each other.

Date added: Mon, 09 Mar 2020 17:24
Wooooow, what a wonderful week.
In 5 fishing days, caught the Cavalier boat no less than 6 Bluefin tuna.

Only today, Monday, though we had 3 bites, two of which were caught and released.
And what kind of ........ pffff.
These tuna were estimated at weights of 300 and 350 kilos.

The first bite was missed at around 10.30 am, after which the second bite was around 11 am.
The Dutchman Paul Blackmore needed about half an hour to fish this monster next to the boat.
Great Paul and congratulations again with your first, estimated 300 kilo Bluefin Tuna.

The second Bluefin was even estimated at around 350 kilos and was caught by a Finnish angler.

Great guys. What a beautiful result.

The fish has been released in an excellent condition.

Congratulations again guys.

Trolling
Date added: Thu, 05 Mar 2020 19:44
Since a week, various sport fishing boats have been trolling again.
After the capture of their first bluefin tuna, the Cavalier has already received several bites from these monsters, but unfortunately without any luck.

For example, yesterday we had the angler Jacob Andreas on board. The result was, two bites of bluefin tuna, of which he was even allowed to try his luck for more than half an hour in the fighting chair. But this tuna also managed to escape 25 meters under the boat.

Today again a lot of activity, but unfortunately no bites. However, many by-catches of Atlantic Bonitos

Who knows, it will be our turn again tomorrow?

Sand storm
Date added: Sun, 23 Feb 2020 17:08
Sandstorm

Since yesterday Gran Canaria has been plagued by a heavy sandstorm, which in some places gave a view of barely 300 meters.
The very strong winds, with gusts of more than 120 to 150 km per hour has therefore caused many destruction.

Fortunately, the fire that broke out in two different places in the middle of the island, is now under control.

In the harbor has the strong winds also destroyed the point of sale + the advertising sign of the boat Cavalier.

So today it's going to be a mess for the crew, instead of enjoying their day off this Sunday.
Totally sour for Hafid, who is even celebrating his birthday today.

It will be clear that the boats need now a good cleaning.
The fishing trip for tomorrow monday 9 AM has therefore been moved to 2 p.m.

Amazing week
Date added: Sat, 15 Feb 2020 18:11
Today we can look back on a very successful fishing week with beautiful catches.
With light material, lots of Snappers, Bonitos and some Barracudas were caught.

Last Thursday we fished a day of trolling. Despite the presence of various whales, we did not catch the first Albacores or Bluefin Tuna of 2020.
But after all, not trying is always wrong.

The Cavalier is at the moment very busy, what means that we are also fishing tomorrow, Sunday.
Do you want to go fishing for a day?
Please let us know as soon as possible.
A phone call is enough.

Have a nice weekend

Albacores
Date added: Tue, 11 Feb 2020 21:12
Since last week there has been Albacore Tuna caught around the islands of La Palma and La Gomera.
The first Bluefin tuna have probably also been observed.

The above messages mean for Gran Canaria, that we can expect these fighters, with a little luck, in only a few days in our fishing waters ???

This week Thursday or Friday we will try one or two days trolling.

Fingers crossed ????

Great Catches
Date added: Wed, 22 Jan 2020 17:07
Last week the catches were a bit disappointing due to the strong wind.
Now that the wind has decreased a lot in the last two days, the catches are fortunately a lot better.

Yesterday and today again plenty of Atlantic Bonitos, Red Snappers, Sea Bream, Moray and Rays and also a nice big Barracuda.

You can find the photos in our 'Hall of Fame'

Windy
Date added: Sat, 18 Jan 2020 16:07
The last fishing days of this week we had strong winds from the South-East.
It made it almost impossible to fish on our own fishing spot.

Also the catches were bad here. We have therefore chosen to fish a few days on the North-West side of the island.
Here the sea was calm.
Yesterday we went also a day trolling.

All in all, there were this week many different fish species caught.

We are already a week further after our latest news update.

I want to thank all anglers again for the many beautiful hours and especially our friends Irene & Eric Pos.
