Well, marlin were and are still around, but funny to watch how the luck goes around. Nowadays there are an average of 8 to 10 boats fishing the same area and some boats catching up to 8 blues a day and some don’t even see one! Continue reading
Fishing was just great since beginning of april with unusal calm seas for this month! Okay, some days have been quite and it was hard to find a blue, but all over we had some great marlin fishing. I decided to go to San Nicolão for a three days trip Continue reading

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!
Hello everybody, I’m more than proud to inform you about the next TBF captain-trophy winner for most tagged and released atlantic Blue Marlin in 2008: Captain Bonze, fishing on Happy Hooker 1! He is the third of the Happy Hooker fishing team after Captain Simon and myself, to win that trophy! Our very best congratulations to him! Here is what the TBF sent him a day ago: Continue reading
Hello everybody, a Happy New Year and plenty of fish for this year! After a very successful marlin-catching year 2008, with catches up to ten blues a day per boat, we are looking forward for the coming season 2009. Still working on both Hookers, repaintings, overhauls and maintainces, we are quite busy these days. Capt. Simon and capt. Bonze will be back again very soon to take you out to catch your fish(es), both have caught far over 100 blues last year and are already hot to see what this year will bring us! Due that the fuel prices didn’t go down here, we had to raise prices, but that shouldn’t worry you. For that we will offer special charter rates for speed-jigging for august and september with capt. Simon, who showed everybody the last two years that we don’t have only marlin to catch. The biggest amberjacks were caught wheighting in at ~ 50 kg, and some better ones lost after long and hard fights … So when will he come back with one of 80 kg ? As we have seen them already beeing caught by pros here ? We still have some weeks for charter in the hot period, so don’t think that long and book now to make sure you won’t miss the hot bite!
