Cape Verde marlin bite comes to a fantastic close: by Captain Duarte Rato

Cape Verde marlin bite comes to a fantastic close: by Captain Duarte Rato

 

“Hi Sean,

 

My season in Cape Verde is over which is a pity as the bite is still going really strong. But, time to get back home after a short stop in Lisbon for a week and get the boat ready for the Marlin Season at Bazaruto.

 

In total Blue Marlin numbers for Cape Verde were;

 

Raised:       81

 

Strikes:       52

 

Hook-up:     41

 

Releases:    36

 

 

So we averaged just above 2 Marlin a day and I would say the fishes’ average weight were around 250 to 300 pounds with a few 400´s and the biggest a solid 500 – not BIg fish but the numbers certainly make up for it!!!!

 

Epic stuff brother!!!!”
