Best Bull ever for Mike!!!

Mike is a long standing and regular client aboard “Gavito” and yesterday we left the marina at 10.00 a.m. for an 8 hour Big Game Fishing trip.

At about 12.00 we saw a Blue Marlin approach the spread and started to knock the Port side Outrigger lure. This lasted for about 10 – 15 seconds and it then took off. Unfortunately the line broke and the fish got away.

We believe the fish was about 300/400 lbs so not very big by Madeira standards. We carried on trolling and was on our way back to the marina at about 5.00 p.m. when somebody said that we had caught a length of rope with the shotgun lure I started to wind this in from the fly bridge and thought it was odd that I could only make line if I backed down and also that the “ROPE” was moving rapidly to the starboard side. Lo and Behold the “ROPE” turned out to be the 30 lbs Bull Mahi Mahi pictured above. This had been on Mike’s “Bucket List” for overf 10 years, so he was highly delighted
