And a 650lb Black Marlin for Anton Jankowitz

And a 650lb Black Marlin for Anton Jankowitz: Got our good friend and regular Carl Jankowitz and his brother Anton and friend Andrew come with him for the first of his 9 days and we got a nice #650 Black for Anton Jankowitz yesterday!

It’s been better conditions, the best water we have had this season and all the boats getting into some action this last week. We missed a few small ones but at least the ones that stuck were decent and happy with a back-to-back #750 and #650.

Andrew had first fished with us in 2017 and hooked his first Marlin within 10 minutes of fishing which we released almost 2 hours later at 1100 pounds – so Anton was in the chair!

The first two days with Carl, Anton and Andrew were slow and not much bait around…we missed one about 300 on a lure and then another on the swim bait.

Then yesterday we had a slow start and Carl, Anton, Andrew and myself all felt a tad fragile after the previous night´s bokke´s winning celebrations.

It came on in the afternoon!

At 12h30, we raised one about #500 on the skip, it then followed the swim for ages, eventually whacking but no pick up.

Then we had a real small fish, probably no more than 60 pounds, try to eat the rather large skip bait four times. Hilarious to see, it eventually went for the swim, got all wrapped up and jumped off.

Just after 2pm an amazing bite on the skip bait…

Like really epic and this one stuck.

Anton, who had last caught one with us almost 15 years ago got in the chair and we got this thing on the leader in 22 minutes. Hard fighting deep fish and had to sunset it at the end to get her up.

Really cool stuff and Anton´s biggest to date…

Our good friend Eugene had an epic first day on the water aboard the Salt Shaker this season on the 28th October going 2 from 3 with a 200 and a 700, both caught on a lure. On the same day Veleiro also caught a similar size fish in a YFT live bait which they put a satellite tag in.
