Khaled, Adham, Christo & Ahmed
The 82h scheduled on the Eastern bank has unfortunately changed after the first half day, into 34h around the Island.
A mechanical problem forced us to come back home to repair.
There were only 2 days left for these Egyptian fishermen who were doing a very first with us!
The weather is not wonderful : a lot of wind, current and a little swell. Only trolling is possible. After a few small yellowfin tunas kept alive in the tubes, the big tunas (35 to 42 kg) are caught as well as wahoos (18 kg the biggest) for the happiness of our fishermen. Khaled caught his first 200 kg black marlin (yellowfin tuna in Catalina).
The 2nd day, scenario is the same! Adham starts with a black marlin about 130 kg in trolling. This one could not be released. Some beautiful tunas (yellowfin, dogtooth tunas and wahoos)…
In the end, this stay, which started off very badly, ended beautifully.
Congratulations to this wonderful team of aircraft pilots as comfortable on the sea as in the air! Well done Sirs!
