For the 2nd trio on the Eastern bank, weather is favourable. On the way, on Marlin’s Bd, Guy releases a small blue marlin about 80 kg, caught trolling. One hour later another marlin, much bigger this time, swallows the bonito that Guy put on small tackle. After a 5:30 fient, l’une breaks at the bottom. On the 2nd day, our two fishermen will be fully active on trolling, mainly consisrting in yellowfin tuna (38kg the largest) and wahoos (28kg the biggest).
