Exotic “live on board” premiere for this extraordinary team with a 70h on the Eastern bank.
The way up is made by night to arrive in the early morning. The sea is calm, no bird, no life on the surface. On the other hand a nice activity in troll fishing with beautiful wahoo (24kg the biggest), yellowfin tuna (14kg the biggest), rainbow runners and a beautiful black marlin of 200kg by Gilou to close this first day.

The current is weak and the activity in jigging and bait fishing is quite peaceful, except for the omnipresence of sharks.
On the 2nd day the troll fishing activity fell. We concentrate on the plateau around the rock heads. Many dog tooth tuna have caught (40kg the largest per Zeb), rainbow runners and 1 chicken fish.

During the last morning, troll fishing regains its strength with wahoos and yellowfin tuna. Squale makes a 40kg sailfish and Zeb a 45kg one. In bait fishing Gilou releases a white tip shark weighing about 70kg.

The return by Marlin’s Bd is no surprise.
It is the PERFECT bench for this 200 year old Team at the TOP in a dreamlike atmosphere. (200 years is the total age of each angler)
