Didier, Anthony, Leo & Felix – France

Weather conditions are just perfect for this 82h trip on the Eastern Bank. Leo goes for his very first fishing trip. Good trolling activity gives some small yellowfin tunas and wahoos. As in the previous sessions, sharks are still here, at sunset, eating up all our bottom and live baits. On the 2nd day, activity is incredible on the surface: it’s bubbling everywhere, all around the boat, melting bonitos, yellowfin tunas and rainbow runners… all day long! 27kg for the biggest yellowfin tuna is 27kg and the biggest rainbow runner is 7.5kg. I this excitement, we had left 2 yellowfin tunas unsuccessfully. At night we are punished the same way by sharks: live baits cut off and bottom baits severed.

Days are ever quite alike! Currents changed… and activity has gone! Few birds but some wahoos are charmed by our rapalas (29kg for the biggest). It is only at noon that Anthony catches his 1st black marlin about 100kg. Fish was strangely hooked since the leader was around the head and pectoral fins. Hook was sliding on, like a lasso. Marlin reached the boat exhausted and could not be re-oxygenated.

At night, many doggies  and jobfishes escape from sharks (22.5kg for the biggest by Didier).

On the last day, Félix releases a nice bull-shark about 150 kg environ after 40 min of intense fight!

The “beautiful” glasses against sea-sickness, brought as much for fun as to test them, provided more burst out of laughter than results!
