Cape Verde 27.05.11

Our anglers from Russia, Yuri, Konstantin and Antony have never caught Blue Marlin before in their lifes.
We got 7 out of 18 bites in their week. They had a great time and picked up very fast the right technic to fight Marlin in the chair and stand up.

Cape Verde 20.05.11

The last 8 days Fishing was pretty slow for Cape Verdian Standarts. A lot of green water around the fish is gone now from San Nicolau. We fished with Mike from the USA, a real good fisherman, and only got 4 Blue Marlin during his week. We tried hard , fishing Sao Vicente, San Antao and San Nicolau but there was no concentration of bait.
The last 3 days have some russian guys on board who has never caught Marlin before. We caught 3 Blues so far with them and they are very happy.
Conditions looking better right now and we fish out of the south of Mindelo.

SMOKER is fishing again with Albi and Bjoern from Germany like every year. So far far we released 8 Blues out of 23 bites. Most of the time we only fish teaser and pitch Balyhoo to the Marlin. A bit unlucky on the hook up ratio but it is great fun!

We have fished with our Friends Andy Little and Adam from Fox International from the UK. We caught 2 Blue Marlin with them, a 300 lb and a 900 + lb! We had a few more bites but were abit unlucky during the 3 days. I am happy that they are coming back next year!
