Jean Luc and Anne come back for the 3rd time for an 82h on the Eastern Bank.
Only one marlin strike on Marlins’ Bd. At sunset, a live bonito is sent on which we get a nice dogtooth tuna.
Jean Luc and Anne were delighted with heavy spinning, bringing nice pieces of yellowfin tunas, (the largest of 36kg), as well as wahoos and dorados on a beautiful wreck.

After several attempts in baiting (Catalina), a marlin unfortunately spat out the live yellowfin tuna. Anne: marlin… will be for another time!
Jigging and slow jigging made it possible to reach a wide variety of fish, including 4 released GTs, blue jacks, lugubris, jobfish, rainbow runners, etc…
