Fishing Report 4

November Catch Report 2007.
By Jonas Nyqvist.

A round–up of some of the interesting Similan Islands charters during November 2007.

The Black Marlin season started for real in November on Thonmai seamount west of Similan Islands. Our first trip for the season to the seamount was with our old customer Sumanth from India (also known as Freddy Mercury!) last trip with us he caught a very nice 77kg Dogtooth Tuna at the Andaman Islands. This trip he was equally lucky with the release of the first Black Marlin of the season, an estimated 80kg Black, caught on an Aussie Nightmare lure fished from the outrigger. The fish fought for half an hour and made some spectacular jumps. Freddy and his 2 Indian friends also caught 18 Wahoo, 5 nice Dorado, many Tuna and Barracuda. You can take a look at one of the nice Dorado here, a lovely male.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The second trip to the seamount was with Swedish anglers Claes and Peter. The Wahoo and Dorado fishing was good around the F.A.D.’s with 19 Wahoo and 6 Dorado caught and a couple of Rainbow Runner and 2 Giant Trevally. Peter was fighting a 7kg Wahoo when a big Black Marlin came up behind it and tried to inhale it 3 times, the last time just 2 meters behind the transom; there was not many small Skipjacks or Yellowfin Tuna at the seamount, so the Marlin probably changed diet to Wahoo!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The third trip of the month was with Spanish angler Daniel Calleja and his 2 fishing friends. The Tuna were now back on the seamount, and we caught Skipjacks, Yellowfin and Eastern Little Tuna on the Tuna lures. The second day Daniel hooked up a beautiful 150kg Black Marlin; the fish hit a green and blue 12 inch lure and went ballistic, jumped for hundreds of meters and then went deep. It took Daniel almost an hour of hard-core battling to get the fish into the boat.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We fished altogether four days in November on the seamount west of Similan Islands, and had contact with Marlin on three of the days, all around the same area of the seamount.
