Fishing trip Cabo Verde May 2016

Rick Zeedijk and I left to Lisbon on Thursday 12th May, where we stayed one night. The next day we flew to Sao Vicente to start our 6 days fishing for Blue Marlin.

Initially the first day, we planned to go fishing with Randy Das on Cal Rai, was on Sunday but after talking to him we decided to reschedule to Saturday. The waters around São Vicente were green, so we decided to go further towards Santo Antao. It took us three hours to sail to the good spots, which left us with only five hours for fishing. With the catch of 2 blue marlins we can say we had a good start of our fishing trip: 2/2.

Sunday we were free and on Monday we had a seven hours trip to get to Sao Nicolau with the Nha Cretcheu and captain Stuart Simpson. We agreed to fish there for 5 days. It turned out to be fantastic fishing days with 4 and 3 marlins on the last two days. Catch with Stuart in 5 days: 12/19.

In total we caught 14 marlins and a wahoo. Wednesday the 18th of May, I caught my 100th billfish and with 8 marlin in 6 days it became my most successful Big game trip ever.

Many thanks to Didier Jeanne from family hotel Alto Fortim and captains Randy Das and Stuart Simpson and their crew Daddy Das, Steven and Jacko.

I'm already looking forward to our next trip to Cabo Verde. This is planned for the 2nd week of May 2017. The Penn Challenge tournament will be organized from Mindelo on Sao Vicente as part of the open Dutch EFSA Big gameChampionships. If you are interested to join these Championships, please contact me as soon as possible, phone nr: 0031633150610 or send an email to fransvanoss@upcmail.nl.
