– 30 species in 4 days –

A quiet sea was required to gather 2 jiggers from Reunion (Tof & Fabien) and 2 non-jiggers (Maurice & Andre). In fact, it was the continuity of the previous trip with chopped sea and harsh wind… like a washing machine on spinning mode.

The 82h on the Eastern Bank changed for a 58h + 15h around Rodrigues. However, alchemy operated ! Jiggers caught lots of small pieces and non-jiggers caught lots of small pieces as well.

Out of the first 3 days… no doggy at all : neither small nor big !

Jigging : numerous red coral trouts up to 15kg, small dogtooth tunas (the 4th day), nice jobfish, trevallies, etc…

Live baiting was very much compromised because the numerous sharks. Some of them were caught between 50 and 80kg then released.

In the end, these 4 musketeers caught up to 30 different species, which is a new record for our club… May this comfort ourselves !
