The season is over with a balance of 8 Blue Marlin released, 7 big eye tunas between 45 and 125 kgs and many albacores. It´s been a slow year for marlin but very good for tunas. Even large Bluefin Tuna showed up in the summer but it was impossible to get a byte!
We have released 4 blue marlin between May and June 17. Season has not started as good as last year but is long, so we hope it gets better day by day. We have also caught 2 Big Eye Tunas of 83 and 95 KG!

We have been fishing in shallow waters and also in the reef catching some snappers, amberjacks, morey eels, and many other smaller fish!
We released our last blue marlin of the season on October 9th and started bottom fishing later on…
