Natural Mystic didn’t have a much action today with only one marlin strike this morning with guests from Anse Chastanet and no strikes this afternoon with guests from Ladera. Reel Affair however, on a six hour fishing trip from the north of the island with a group of friends staying at Bay Gardens and Sandals La Toc had a some good action.
About thirty mintues into the trip the port side outrigger snapped and the Shimano Tiagra 50 started screaming. Bradley’s ( who replaced Errol today who has gone to take part in the Grenada Billfish Tournament) quick action led to a succesful hook up and the fight began. After 15 minutes they landed a very nice Wahoo!!!
Two hours later, another strike and a successful hookup. This time everyone knew that what was on the other end of the line was a lot bigger. Beautiful Sailfish around one hundred pounds, which is quite a decent size for a Sailfish. A twenty five minute fight brought it to the boat and a successful release will see it live to fight another day. This is one of the very rare occasions when the Sailfish didn’t come flying out of the water during the fight.
