Mogán Tournement
Date added: Fri, 12 Jul 2019 09:06
Yesterday the second day of the Mogan Tournement was fished.
It is Eric Pos, who chartered the Cavalier especially for this event.

Eric released allready a Blue Marlin on the 1st tournament day.

After about one hour of fishing he hooked up again
and needed now 20 minutes to catch his second, estimated 300 lbs, Blue Marlin.
Wooooooooow, congrats amigo.

The catches on the other boats were also good to reasonable, so whoever goes home with the honorary metal on Saturday night is still a very big question.

Mogán Tournement
Date added: Tue, 09 Jul 2019 17:18
A great fight by angler Eric Pos resulted in the capture of an estimated 300 lb Blue Marlin this afternoon at 4 pm.

The fish was caught using the bait & switch method, in which the Blue Marlin with artificial bait teasers is lured behind the boat, after which a nosed line is thrown in front of the fish.

Eric and his wife Irene have chartered the Cavalier boat to participate in the 3-day Mogan Big Game Tournement.
Today the first day was fished, after which the second and last day are on Thursday and Saturday this week.

The boat Blue Marlin 3, with Klaas Westerhof on board, was able to release the first Blue Marlin this morning.
After that fish were several misses reported by different boats.

The second Blue Marlin was caught by a private boat.
The third was then caught and released by Eric who worked stand-up only 15 minutes on his fish.
The above results are unofficial and the final decision is of course up to the competition committee which must first approve the photos.

Both boats, Blue Marlin 3 and the Cavalier, can look back on a successful 1st tournament day with 1 release and 1 missed hook up.

The pictures today actually tells you enough.

The Cavalier was trolling for about 3 hours this morning when a school with beautiful large Dorado's was found.

When suddenly 4 of these beautiful green / yellow fighters took the lures at the same time, the party could really start.

Followed by beautiful jumps, all 4 of these Dorado's were caught.

The lucky anglers were Jos van Loo, Eric Pos,Linda Völler and Steven Farinha caught both one.

Great job guys, well done!

Tomorrow starts also the yearly Mogan Tournament.
This tournament is being fished on July 9, 11 and 13.

World Cup 2019
Date added: Thu, 04 Jul 2019 18:10
The boat Cavalier was today, July 4, one of the 151 participants of the one-day Blue Marlin World Cup 2019 tournament.

On board Stefan and Kevin Rausch.
During this world tournament there is only one prize.
And that is for the heaviest Blue Marlin caught on this day.

That one fish brings the winner immediately 750,000 to 1 million dollars.
The minimum weight is a Blue Marlin of 500 lb [225 kg]

Fishing time in all time zones is from 8.30 a.m to 16.30 p.m.
The kick-off was this morning in Cape Verde and ends today at midnight in Kona Hawaii.

The two participating anglers Stefan and Kevin caught 2 Blue Marlin on the Cavalier today with estimated weights of 350 and 400 lb.

Both fish were of course released as they were both below the required 500 lb.

The Cavalier had at least 5 bites today, 2 of which were caught Marlin.
Furthermore, many Marlin were observed, which unfortunately showed no interest at all.
All in all a wonderful and super exciting fishing day with 2 Marlin releases which unfortunately were too small for the main prize.

They will undoubtedly have grown next year.
We will be back again.

Today fished Danny No. 1 the last day of his fishing week on the boat Cavalier.

With the catch of two Blue Marlin on his name, was Danny again optimistic.
And his positive attitude was again rewarded after only one fishing hour.

A nice bite brought at 10 a.m an 18-kilo Wahoo on board.
Wooooow that's a nice start.

The Cavalier hooked up again at 12 p.m.
A giant Blue Marlin showed up between the 2 teasers and fresh bait was now offered with the 'bait & switch' system. Unfortunately the Marlin pulled hook both times and disappeared again.

The last hours of this fishing day was all about seeing the many water turtles and the playing dolphins

Thanks Danny for the nice fishing days and again congratulations with your 3 beautiful catches.

See you in October!

Blue Marlin 3/3
Date added: Fri, 21 Jun 2019 18:35
It became a great fishing day today, which anglers on board the Cavalier will never forget.

It started this morning at 10 a.m when the 1st blue marlin already appeared between the lures. But after two small bites, the fish was gone again.

Half an hour later happened the same thing with the 2nd blue marlin. A few small bites and finished. Pfffffff.

Today we also had Danny Bernard on board. Among the regular customers of the Cavalier better known as Danny No. 1. Danny celebrated his 60th birthday today and how could it have been better.

Strike number 3 was indeed on the rod of birthday boy Danny, who could not have wished for a nicer birthday present. Danny needed twenty minutes to fish his dream fish beside the boat. Great Danny !!! Congratulations again.

One hour later another hook-up. It even became a double strike. Two marlin at the same time. A French angler unfortunately lost his catch, but the other blue marlin came, after a nice fight, in the name of Fredrik Andersson .

But Danny's birthday party wasn't over yet! When he hooked up with his 2nd blaue marlin. And he could also release this beauty.

The total overview of this fishing trip therefore brought 3 blue marlin releases, 3 missed bites and 1 marlin raised.

Woooooow, a fishing day to remember. Birthday boy Danny No. 1 has at least honored his name. Erik, of course, once again congrats with the catch of your blue marlin.

All in all, of course, all the honor of this great fishing day goes to the crew of the Cavalier. Thank you very much Hafid and Aitor !!!!

Billfish Explosion

The Atlantic Ocean in the south of Gran Canaria is currently overwhelmed with Blue Marlin.
Hardly is the 1st released, the next one has already raised.
It has been many years ago, since so many billfish were caught.

After the successful fishing days, there was suddenly a small dip in the Cavalier's catches this morning.

But on the second trip this afternoon it was already 'fiesta' on board.
Now 2 Blue Marlins were caught and no less than 5 were raised.

Good catches were also made today by most of the other boats

Please don't wait too long to contact us, to get a place for the coming days.
There are a few left....

Great Catches
Date added: Wed, 19 Jun 2019 15:00
This year June the Marlin fishing is here in southern Gran Canaria really amazing!

Most fishing boats, including of course the Cavalier, have almost one or more bites every day.
A nice 300 lbs marlin was released yesterday.

Today again 1/3.
So again one release and unfortunately two losers.
One Blue Marlin pulled the hook about10 meters behind the boat.
The second took a run of over 700 meters and adios ........ Bad luck, because this third one was a fucking big fish.
But it's all part of the flushing.

All in all a great fishing day with again the catch of a 280 lbs Blue Marlin. Number 4 of this week. [3 days]

Congratulations crew and angler Maarten Amse from Holland with this nice release.

My advice;

Not yet booked ???
We have next week a few places available !!!
