Philippe and Marc come for the umpteenth time, with Laurent. Peter from Hong Kong, completes the team for an 82h East.

The way up to the bank is rather long and difficult (wind, swell, rain and current… all frontward!) A beautiful blue marlin came 3 times on the lure, unsuccessfully. Sea calmed down well in the following days and allowed large jig sessions, interspersed with trolling fishing sequences.

Jigging: a few dogtooth tunas (22 kg the largest), 4 varieties of jacks (2 GT released), beautiful jobfish, snappers and other groupers.
