Archive for the ‘Cape Verde Marlin Fishing’ Category

“Happy Hooker” weighed in an 1097# blue marlin winning the 2010 World Cup for the second time and taking home over $300,000 in prize money, big congrats’ to all on board. There was only one fish weighed here in Madeira. The Spanish team on “Audaz” boated a 550# fish after a 4 hour battle. Fishing was slow for the rest of the fleet with only a couple other fish raised. The bite had  been slow in Bermuda and Kona leading up to sunday’s tournament. These two places are always big contender’s to take the cup but this year it was Cape Verdes turn. Back in Madeira the fishing was still pretty quite today. “Hawk Eye” released a nice fish around 800# and “Tightline” missed a blue and a white.
