La Gomera, Canary Islands – Over the last week the Blue Marlin bite has materialized off La Gomera. Boats are getting shots as many as five (5) Blue Marlin a day with many of them of the larger variety. Capt. Bernardo Niz Ruiz on Noalex has experienced some of the best fishing with two days were he released four (4) Blue Marlin including a 700 & 600. The Hedonist has also experienced excellent fishing boasting their own four (4) Blue Marlin day.
The largest fish we have confirmation on came from Capt. Jason Pipe on Bocinegro who released an estimated 800 lbs. Blue Marlin, on that same day releasing a 600. We love the numbers, but two 500+ Blue Marlin in a day is pretty special. Other boats getting into the “big girl” action was Maynieves who released a 700 lbs. Blue Marlin and Nell Magic releasing a 600.
This is just the start of the season in La Gomera and the Canary Islands for that matter. We should see continued good fishing through the summer and don’t be surprised if we get one with four digits.
