Tapani, Marko, Mikko, Tommi (Finland) & Olsen (Norway)
This sympathetic team comes from Finland and Norway for a 82h Eastern Bank + 1 day. They want to catch big pieces! The sea is nice. Marlins’ Bd doesn’t work but a sailfish that unhooks. Nice yellowfin tunas (33kg for the biggest), beautiful wahoos (biggest of 25kg) on live baiting, dorados, jobfish and trevallies will be caught before spending the other days looking for big fish. A big marlin came on to the lines, without an end.
A blue marlin about 80kg will be released and a xiphias gladius will be lost during a night, before striking a big blue marlin. After extravaganza it dies at 350m deep. It will be lost after an hour efforts on 130lb, trying to make it glide.
Large disappointment but great memories and a great adrenaline rush!
