The long awaited Olaf Grimowski report on the Azores:
We went to Condor were it was still fairly uncomfortable but full of Blue Marlin too! We caught 3 out of 7 bites and a bite from a Mako of 250 pounds. We first caught a 350 pounder on Bonze Tracker
After that we had the Mako on the DS followed by a doubleheader on Grimmel and Tracker both pulled off (medium size). 3 minutes later we had a strike on the Tracker.
And then finally we caught two again. Mongrel Dog (250 pounds) and at least a decent one.
Over 500 on the tracker again. Doubleheader with Captain Zack caught two for four. Habitat, one for two plus a Mako and Xacara caught a 700 pounder and a White Marlin!
We raised one White in the North the only fishable place with 25kt southerly wind. Not one of my favourite fishing days!
We raised a 600 pounder that didnít switch before it got too rough for what we do on the Condor Bank. We went to the North and saw nothing else. Habitat caught 3 of 4 bites on the Condor (950 & 800 & ?)
We raised three Blues again all on the Bonze Gimmel. Hooked one and the 700 pounder on 1.5 hrs before she broke off. The other two were a double which didnít switch.
As we are world record fishing with Michel & Dedee Delaunay we our first hookups today. We raised three Blue Marlin on the Bonze Grimmel today, hooked two on 16-lb line which we lost the first one immediately and the second one after 2 hrs fight being tail wrapped. We also raised two White Marlin. Habitat raised a 500 pound Blue as well.
We raised a 500 pound Blue that spit our squid out and like a rotten apple left. We also raised two Whites.
Nada again, but Habitat raised two Blues for Daniel their underwater photographer.
