01.01.2010 A HAPPY NEW YEAR to all ! We had the next reason to party as we were just informed by “The BILLFISH FOUNDATION“ that CAPT. BONZE won his second Title for “Captain of the year 2009 in the Atlantic“ for most ATl. Blue Marlin releases !!! Our Compliments and well done Bonze !
The fishing during april until now was full of highs and some downs between. Capt. Bonze had one day when he caught 10 blues again! As well as Capt. Simons best day was 6 releases so far and he managed to catch already 2 triple-headers! Even when we’ve seen some days without flags on the riggers, the fishing is consistently good. So far there are allmost no thunas caught this year, but we all hope that that will change soon. There are also some new pics on our photo-page, check out.
The Happy Hooker fishing team is complete by now, Captain Bonze is also back and ready to go for the 2009 season. He brought hundreds of his lures and his new models look very promising ! The fishing is hot by now; all boats are catching Blues and some good sizes with them up to 800 lbs ! Even the hoo’s are around in good numbers. We still have some days free in june, one of the hottest period for marlin, so don’t think too long and ask for possibilities!
