Pierre & Michel (France)
58h around Rodrigues. Sea is rough, swell is short and wind strong for this first trip. Many yellowfin tunas between 10 and 15kg are caught trolling, as well as nice wahoos (18kg for the biggest) and beautiful dorados (the biggest of 10kg).
Pierre releases a small marlin and a sailfish.
Michel catches the 219th dogtooth tuna over 50 kg aboard Black Marlin, baiting, this one weighing 50.5 kg!!! The other doggies are between 25 and 30kg.
Let’s hope the 2nd trip is less “tonic”.
