The last 4 days Smoker and Doña Pi went to San Antao due to strong winds on Sao Vicente.We fished with nice guys from Norway Christian, Guttorm, Oddvar and Thor. Especially San Antao with staying in the remote village of Tarafal was a great experience for them.
Smoker went 2 for 6 on the trip
Doña Pi was 5 for 7.
Smoker will go to San Nicolau today for a few days as there were some promising reports from this island.
Today it was the third and last day for our friends from the Canaries. We went to San Antao again and first Juan Jose caught a 600 lb . Later in the day we had a nice bite on the teaser and Ariel caught a 300 pounder on the pitch bait on 50 lb.
2 boats went to the north and also saw good fishing. We are 3 days off now and start on the 26th again .
After 2 days on land we fish again with Tito, Juan Jose, Luis and Ariel from Las Palmas, Gran Canaria.
Day 1 we went to the deep water as there is no bait and fish on the shallow of San Pedro, we fianlly went 1 for 1.
Today we tried San Antao and were lucky, final result was 2 for 5. One really nice bite on the teaser and we hooked him perfectly on the pitch bait.
Franz, Bastian, Stefan and Werner from Germany had real bad luck with their week . On of their days had to be cancelled due to bad weather and also the remaining days was facing strong winds and few fish.
In four days we only caught 1 Blue ( Werners first Blue ever), lost another 2 and raised one more. For the whole fleet the fishing was really slow with only few Blues caught. I feel sorry for the guys as they could not see the Marlin bite CV usually provides.
The weather will improve by thursday.
Yesterday it was slow, we were 0 for 1. Today SMOKER first checked out the north but after 2 hours we decided to go back to the south and arrived at mid day at San Pedro. We still went 4 for 7.
One boat which fished the whole day the south went 8 for 13.
Doña Pi fished the 3 days before and went 3 for 6.
Yesterday we saw nothing at all. Today it went much better for SMOKER catching 3 for 6 and raising another one.It was the first day for our friends from the Canaries and they had great fun .
One boat reported a 900 pounder and another one raised a real big one .... over 1000 lb ....probably.
The last 4 days Smoker fished the south of Mindelo and we caught 9 Blue Marlin. Bjoern and Peter had their last day and they caught 16 out of 29 bites.
Weather is great and the boats see some fish every day now.
We have fished for one month now and caught 39 Blues so far.
