280 kg Blue Marlin
Date added: Sat, 16 Jun 2018 14:09
In the first week of his holiday (June 3) he already managed to get one, stand-up, on the hook.
The fight lasted for almost 2 hours on a 50 lbs rod.

Now two weeks later and on the last day of his holiday,he did it again..
I am talking about angler Peter Zeestraaten, better known by many as Peter Heineken.

Peter managed to catch a Blue Marlin today, in less than 20 minutes, with an estimated weight of about 280 kilos.

Great Peter and what a wonderful end of your fishing days on the Cavalier.

A very good trip to Holland and hopefully we see you again during your next holiday

Wahoo

The boat Cavalier had a very nice start this morning.
With only a part of the lines in the water, they had immediately success.
Jos van Loo from the Netherlands could very quickly cross out the catch of a Wahoo from his bucketlist.

A little later it became super exciting again when a giant Blue Marlin took one of the lures followed by an estimated 800 meter run.
Woooow, what a sensation.
The party unfortunately did not last longer than a few minutes.
Too bad, after all, you can't catch them all.

On the boardradio we heard that two Blue Marlins were caught this day and of course the Wahoo of Jos.

Tomorrow we have another chance

Woooooooow, today the 4th Blue Marlin of the season 2018 has also been caught by the boat Cavalier.

The Cavalier is doing well with this catch, as she is currently the only sport fishing boat in Puerto Rico which has already caught four.
In fact, all other boats still have to catch their 1st marlin.
But as every angler knows, this is of course also a factor of happiness. Or not .............?

Marco Vermeulen was today the lucky angler who could take place in the fighting chair.
It was a tough fight which luckily resulted in the success of this catch.
The Blue Marlin was estimated by the crew at 280/300 kilos.
So, a huge boy. The fish was of course released properly.

Congratulations guys with this beautiful catch.

Red Snappers
Date added: Sat, 02 Jun 2018 18:09
The Cavalier fished this last week several times and successfully on the bottom.
Catches consisted mainly of Red Snappers and Seabreams.

Because of the low water temperature the catches with the trolling are still moderate. Some Skipjacks were caught. This morning we also received a report of the catch of a Blue Marlin

So fingers crossed for the next week

Bottom fishing
Date added: Wed, 30 May 2018 21:11
After the success of the catch of the first Blue Marlin, is the trolling fishing unfortunately a little disappointing.

For this reason fished the boat Cavalier this morning a few hours on the bottom.

Tomorrow we have another day.

Ready for the new season

After the annual check of the boat, went the Cavalier this week Monday back into the water.

On Monday and Tuesday the boat was trolling, but unfortunately without success.
Yesterday, they saw a Bluefin Tuna next to the boat, but unfortunately no more than that.
We haven't see Marlin yet.

This morning fished the Cavalier for a few hours at the bottom.
Here were the catches as before.
Catching Atlantic Bonito and Barracuda with live bait and light rods is always a delicious fishery.

Tomorrow we have another day.

Beware of the Weever Fish !
Date added: Tue, 01 May 2018 18:29
The 1st of May was today in the South of Gran Canaria, a brilliant sunny and almost windless day.
The boat Cavalier fished with their customers on the shallow reef, where outside the many dozens of seabreams also some North Atlantic Bonito's and a beautiful Barracuda was caught.

Small dip for this boy, who has been fishing in the Canarian waters since 1986.
I have warned in those 32 years many hundreds of anglers about the Weever fish venom.
Today it was my turn due to carelessness.
Fucking shit what does that hurt terribly.

I already see the faces of my 'best' friends and anglers laughing, but despite a little bit of bad luck, I really do not wish them this either.
After half an hour of infusion, the pain has happily gone as well as left.

With extra thanks for Cees and Petra Pipping and Marco Bos with his daughter, the latter who managed to catch on light tackle a good sized 8 kilos of Sierra Tuna.

Tomorrow we have another day, so who knows what we will catch again.

Bluefin Tuna
Date added: Sun, 29 Apr 2018 19:16
During the last days, several sport fishing boats were successful with the trolling fishing.
For example, the boats Calrei and the Blue Marlin 3 both caught two Bluefin Tuna this week, which of course were properly released.

There were also several private boats successful this weekend with the capture of one or more of these gigantic powerhouses.

The boat Cavalier has 3 days this week to fight with one of these tuna, because the boat goes Thursday 3/5 to Sunday 6/5 to the dry dock for its annual maintenance.

Good catch to everyone !

Bottom fishing OK - Trolling fishing SHIT

Bottom fishing OK

With the catch of two Bluefin Tuna, the courage went well last week.
How unpredictable is sport fishing has been proven the last days.
Five days of trolling brought unfortunately not one fish in or beside the boat.

Today we tried our luck again with a fishing trip on the bottom.
With catches of Atlantic Bonito, Barracuda and some smaller Snappers a great fishing day, but still .......?

Tomorrow we trolling again.
One thing is certain !!!!!
The Bluefin Tuna or the 1st Blue Marlin is close by.

350 kg Bluefin Tuna
Date added: Sun, 15 Apr 2018 16:53
Many days with a 'zero' are suddenly richly rewarded this weekend.
Yesterday released the Cavalier a beautiful 280 kilos Bluefin Tuna and today they caught another one

Regular customer Kaarlo was allowed to battle with this giant tuna today, which was estimated at a weight of no less than 350 kilos.

Three strikes were needed to get this sample under control.
The 1st one was lost after a 50 meter run and the 2nd strike was lost after a run of 500 meters.

But the 3rd strike was okay and after a hard fight could the crew of the Cavalier release their 4th Big Eye tuna of 2018.

Congratulations !

250.000 kilo
Date added: Tue, 10 Apr 2018 16:50
The Spanish quota for Bluefin tuna, which totaled 250,000 kilos, is closed for Spanish professional fishing.
All 250 tons have already been caught for the year 2018.

Both, the Bluefin tuna and the Blue and White Marlin, can of course be caught by the anglers, unless they are released in good condition.

Due to the strong wind it is not easy to find the above powerhouses the last few days.

Tomorrow we have another day
