Sam, Helen & Fred – China
Our first team from China is very lucky. They could have embarked the last flight to Rodrigues before airport was closed in Mauritius, because of the cyclone Carlos.
A 82h trip on the Eastern Bank is initially scheduled. Yann wants to take no risk with such a system around and decides to fish around Rodrigues.
Activity is good, as much for trolling as for baiting. Jigging is a little more…. delicate!
• Fred catches a 66kg dogtooth tuna baiting, on live bonito. It is the 222th doggy over 50kg caught aboard Black Marlin.
• Helen, live baiting as wall, catches a 40kg doggy.
• Sam, catches is very first marlin, about 100kg, within 20 min, trolling.
Numerous yellowfin tunas (40kg for the biggest) are caught trolling, as well as nice wahoos (biggest of 20kg). They confirm that activity is still great around Rodrigues.
These very young and nice Chinese customers have gone back with more souvenirs than dreams! This is also our best satisfaction…
