A few more first timers for season´s last fishing days…
Here´s a short report of the last fishing days for the season where we still got a couple of Marlin for first timers. As per Duncan´s trip which we reported here (see link below) conditions where hard as water temperature kept rising but at least the water was beautiful and blue and the sea very calm but last few days been extremely hot.
Here´s a day-to-day account of the season´s last fishing days…
VAMIZI 06.12.21 BAZARUTO ISLAND
1 from 1 today on a #200 on a short day.
The fish went for the Black over Red (Capt. Morgan) Bonito Smoker from Pulsator Lures.
Capt. Morgan on Veleiro was the only other boat out there and also got 1 from 1 on a similar size fish.
VAMIZI 07.12.21 BAZARUTO ISLAND
2 from 2 today on a parlor of a day with a breeze from the NE and Blue water.
Great guys from Holland for just one day and we got 74-year-old Yuap Bac his first ever Marlin @ #300 and then Daniel Bac got a little one.
One fish on a lure and the other on the skip bait.
Has it´s been most days very cool bait session early this morning with many species but most importantly some good size queenies for the swim baits.
IBO went 1 from 2 on the swim bait on a #200.
Pic from the archive as both fish were non jumpers today!!!!
VAMIZI 08.12.21 BAZARUTO ISLAND
0 from 1 today, nice fish looking north of #700 came up on one of those big quennies swim bait we caught yesterday.
Was there for ages then faded.
Came back again and after a while it finally whacked it but there was no pick up!!!
Really sad we did not get Harry Kitner his first fish and would have been EPIC to finish it off with another good one.
Bait session in the morning was epic again, could have been a slaughter but we had plenty and made it short.
Last fishing day
Out with Wessel Stander who worked at the lodge as a dive Instructor about 17 years ago. We have always kept in touch and he brough his wife and kids to see the resort and for a nice holiday.
Flat calm out there but when I saw the temperature had climbed more than a degree overnight and now over 28c it was not a good sign.
It was pretty slow and we never saw one but did have a popping and jigging session at 9 mile and got some nice fish including a GT and a big Bohar Snapper.
And that´s it for the Season, a real cracking one and we will shortly write a season report.
Until then all the best, good holidays, Merry Christmas and happy new year…
