This time, this friends’ trio wants to make 3 trips of 34h “special marlins, stand up”. They are convinced that there is marlin in Rodrigues but no one really looks for it. The 1st trip is around the island and the 2 others are on the Eastern Bank. The weather conditions are difficult at first and rough in the end. But they are warriors! What’s the result by the way? 9 marlins seen, 8 strikes, 3 unhooked, 5 caught.

2 black marlins noirs are embarked:

• the 1st of 250kg has arrived dead by the boat after a 2h30 fight. If it seemed well hooked by the fish’s mouth, after numerous jumps, it unhooked but the hook came right… in the anus!

This trip, in an excellent atmosphere and a rough sea, shows that you can have fun if you only look for marlin!
