Barbara and Bernard, Jean Philippe and Christine, Jean Charles and Dominique

It is with great pleasure that we meet again Barbara and Bernard. They here with two couples of friends, to make them discover fishing with Yann aboard Black Marlin, through 3 one-day and a 34-hour trips.
The cyclonic swell generated by Haleh, which fortunately remained 500 km from Rodrigues, made the stay difficult without altering the very good general atmosphere…

Only trolling was possible in the first few days: yellowfin tunas (20kg the biggest), wahoos (15kg the largest), dorados, and a sailfish released by Jean Philippe.
