Bazaruto Rats – August´s Baby Black Marlin
Bazaruto Rats – August´s Baby Black Marlin: As we reported last week, we have had a good number of rats. Meaning baby Black Marlin around the Archipelago since mid-July which is a great sign for the upcoming Heavy Tackle Season.
It really depends on the year but normally we start getting the bigger fish coming in around early September but a few years ago we started the season in late August and got a couple fish in the 500-pound region.
This year we are starting the season on the 6th of September but until the 22nd our charters will mostly be light tackle, jigging and popping hopefully with a bit of heavy tackle in between and, of course stocking up on bait.
At this stage and due to late cancellations, we have had two spots open up.
The first is 4 days aboard VAMIZI from the 18 to 21 September and the second is 6 days on IBO from the 20th to the 25th of November.

Juvenile Black Marlin often refer to as Rats normally start showing up on the Bazaruto Archipelago as soon as late July and they can be pissed off, speedy and high flying acrobats that provide great fun on light tackle!
Anyway, at the moment it’s all about these Rats – August´s juvenile Black Marlin, which can, with the right tackle, provide great fun as they are speedy and acrobatic fish that jump their minds out when hooked!
