Frans, Mart, Dre & Gérard (Netherland)
Fishing conditions were quite nice on Hawkins for this sympathetic team from Holland lead by Frans, a regular. Mart & Dre are recidivists aboard Black Marlin whereas Gerard comes for his very first time.
As they came hands in pockets, our Dutch mates had fun with light conventional 30lb and 50lb tackle catching yellowfin tunas (27kg for the biggest) dorados and wahoos (34kg for the biggest). Even if they tried jigging (small doggies, red coral trouts and jobfish were released), they had real fun baiting catching particularly 2 dogtooth tunas– the 209th and 210th over 50kg aboard Black Marlin: 59kg for Dre and 65kg for Mart, new Holland Record!
