Blue Marlin
Date added: Wed, 24 May 2017 15:10
Unfortunately, the low water temperature of the last days brought little to no fish at all.
Today, the water temperature was suddenly again two degrees higher than during the previous days, which resulted in several bites of Blue Marlin. The best water temperature for the marlin is 23+ degrees. The warm wave flow is of course of great importance here.

The Cavalier today had 3 Blue Marlines behind the lures.
Two of these took of 5 and 80 meter line and spit out the hook again
The 3rd Marlin only looked curious and disappeared again in depth.

Erik from Mogan and Pedro from the boat Fish On also reported a Blue Marlin behind their lures, but these two were unfortunately not caught.

More luck for the boats Blue Marlin 3 and New Felusi who released both a Blue Marlin this morning.

Pretty much action so and hopefully this will happen during the coming fishing days.

The catches are the last days not really good .
There are some Skipjacks caught, but that's all what's happening.
Yesterday we had a big Blue Marlin behind the lures, but unfortunately no hook up.
The reason for the sudden bad catches can not really be explained, and we can only hope that it will turn quickly again.
And as every fisherman will understand, maybe tomorrow the fish is back again

Date added: Mon, 03 Apr 2017 22:31
Last week, was the boat Cavalier the only one of five sport fishing boats in Puerto Rico who caught and released 4 Bluefin Tuna.

Also, this Monday morning had the clients on this boat 2 bites and caught again 2 Bluefins.

Frank Roche from Holland caught within 30 minutes Bluefin No. 7 and his fellow angler Calle Blomquist from Finland worked 60 minutes on Bluefin number 8.
Both fish with weights of 300 and 280 kg, were released in an excellent condition.

I like to congratulate both anglers again and the crew of the Cavalier, who made it possible again, to change a normal Monday into an unforgetable fishing day.

See you tomorrow

188 ton Bluefin Tuna
Date added: Sat, 25 Mar 2017 22:26
Commercial fishing boats in the Canary Islands needed this year only a few days to catch a total of 188,000 kilos Bluefin Tuna.
This was also the entire quota of 2017.

This quota does not apply to the sport fishing which, unless of course they release the bluefin, are allowed to fish on it.

Unfortunately were the catches for the sport fishing boats this week not overwhelming.
But as any angler will surely know, there are still good and bad fishing days.
Tomorrow another chance.
