Nice Catches
Date added: Tue, 05 Dec 2017 07:48
Last week, some of the sportfishing boats had caught some large Wahoo
Unfortunately, these fighters do not show up more during the last days.
But there are still nice catches on the bottom and at the surface of the water.

Even with the current 'winter weather' we can not grumble, because with daily temperatures of 25 degrees and little breeze, a day of fishing is still a very good idea.

Satisfied Catches
Date added: Fri, 24 Nov 2017 22:19
A look back at the previous days shows that the catches by the trolling are almost finished.

The best catches are therefore mainly made on the reef / bottom.
The rays are still the largest here and can easily weigh several dozen kilos.

But with light material the other fish also give an excellent sport.
These are usually the Snappers, Breams, Baracuda, Trumpeter Fish, Atlantic Bonito, Jacks ....... etc.

Date added: Mon, 13 Nov 2017 22:19
Yesterday, Sunday November 12, was the Cavalier the only sport fishing boat in Puerto Rico who left the harbour for a day of fishing.
The 5 sport fishermen, who had caught really many Albacores during the 3 previous days, had decided to fish their last fishing day on the bottom/reef.
Their very successful fishing holiday was concluded with catches of Red Snapper, Murenes, some Roggen, many small breams ...... etc.
On the way back to the harbor they hooked in with another Albacore.

Today, was the boat booked again as a Part Charter with 10 fishermen from different nationalities.
It became a good fishing day, especially for the Norwegian angler Geir Inge Sivertsen.
All 4 strikes this day, came on his fishing rod.
Geir caught and released 3 heavy Albacore Tunas and lost unfortunately the last one.

Thanks again and see you all tomorrow

Today, no catch reports were received from other sports fishing boats.

34 Strikes - 25 Albacores - on the boat Cavalier
Date added: Fri, 10 Nov 2017 23:29
The boat Cavalier really broke all records today, when it comes to catching Albacores.
For a while, it seemed the previous days that the schools Albacores had left Gran Canaria, but today it turned out to be the opposite.

Five Norwegian sport fishermen had the day of their lives.
They had 34 strikes of Albacore Tuna, and caught 25 of them.
All, estimated to be 25 to 35 kilos tunas, were again released in good condition.

The Blue Marlin 3 fished today at the bottom. They caught this morningmany dozens of Blue Pufferfish, some big Rays, Red Snappers and a beautiful Mako shark.

In this Last News, I would like to thank our German customers / friends Claudia and Susette very much for the many beautiful and unforgettable fishing days.
Both ladies fished, even like last year, 14 days at both the Blue Marlin 3 and the Cavalier.
With catches of different Albacores, Mako Sharks, Rays, Red Snappers, Maru Eels, Barakuda, Puffer fish ........ etc, they can look back on a very successful fishing holiday.

Good catches on the Cavalier
Date added: Wed, 01 Nov 2017 19:14
Yesterday we had Marcel van Bouwel from Belgium aboard the Cavalier who had rented the boat with some friends.
Since the previous fishing days had been very successful, with catches of Albacore Tuna, it was chosen to go trolling.
During the 1st hour of their trip they caught an Albacore and a beautiful Dorado.
A pity of the rather hard wind which was quite a bit strong on this fishing day.

Today, luckily, we had no more bother of this wind and also the catches were a lot better as yesterday
For example, 8 beautiful Albacores were caught. Bit sorry for the 4 fish who were missed, but this can also happen with fishing

Tomorrow we have another day

Great Catches
Date added: Mon, 23 Oct 2017 22:34
There has been done nice catches on board of the Cavalier.

Because of the school holidays, and the manny junior anglers, decided the crew of our boat to fish on the bottom.

With the trolling fishing it is nearly impossible to catch a nice fish for all anglers.

With the bottom fishing ALL our clients, young or old, have a very good chance to catch a good sized fish.

So daily 10 happy fishermen.

Welcome on board of the Cavalier

There has been done great catches in the last week, during the trolling and the bottom fishing.

The fishing boats who decided togo for the trolling reported daily catches of 2 to 4 Albacores with average weights of 25 to 40 kilos.
The Albacore Tuna must be released since October 12, but it does not matter, of course. It will remain a beautiful sports fish.

The bottom fishing applies to the same rules.
Different species of rays, sharks, .....etc must also be released immediately after the catch, for simple reasons that these fishes are protected.
Nothing wrong with that, because after that you have the chance again, to catch this fish the next day.

Currently in Puerto Rico, in the autumn holidays, is very busy on the sport fishing boats.
If you also want to go fishing, please let me know in advance.
It would be a shame if you, literally and figuratively, just miss the boat:

Bottom fishing
Date added: Mon, 09 Oct 2017 18:06
After many months of successful trolling, had the Cavalier crew this morning chosen for the bottom fishing.

Anchored in their 'old hot spot' it seemed as if the reef fishes had been waiting the whole summer.
Wooooooow , what a wonderful and great start.
Already soon, the first fishes were caught, varying in weights from 500 to 1500 grams.

Peter Heineken hooked up,on the surface, with a light spinning rod, an 8 kilograms Barracuda. What a beautiful fish Peter. Congratulations again.

Daan Kros hooked his fish on the bottom and with the catch of two big Tiger Murenes he had quickly broken his personal record.

Willie Vermeulen fished also with light tackle on the bottom and caught differents species of Comber

All in all, a successful fishing day on the reef. Hopefully, this party will continue.
