1st February 2007

Broadbill was out along with White Otter, Shuwari & Jasiri but only sails were caught today 3 on Shuwari and 1 on Jasiri. I believe that White Otter lost a decent sized blue marlin that from what I gather managed to spool them.

2nd February 2007

No boats out from Sea Adventures but White Otter, Shuwari & Jasiri were out. Not many marlin were seen and those that were were mostly not taking what was on offer. No marlin caught and not too sure if there were any sails taken.

3rd February 2007

Kamara II out with Marcel Dekkers and Dinand Rouwenhorst returning for their 3rd trip on Kamara II. Shuwari, Jasiri, Otter and Pandora were also out today. There was a fantastic sea although not that many flying fish. We headed straight out deep and had our 1st strikes at 7.10am from a pair of sails that unfortunately we missed. The problem with them being out in the deep water is that they so often hit the marlin lures rather than the strips so far more difficult to hook up with. Action was fairly continuous all day with fish being seen or struck nearly every 30 min or so. Kamara II ended up with 2 striped marlin & 2 sails, White Otter tagged a blue marlin they estimated at 250-300 lb, Shuwari &
Jasiri missed out but little Pandora got a stripey & 2 sail.

4th February - Marcel & Dinand were again on Kamara II and 2 young German anglers were fishing with Pat on Broadbill. They had been fishing for some years always out from Mtwapa as well as Lamu and had never caught anything bigger than a kingfish. Shuwari & Jasiri were also out and the fishing continued to be great fun. Kamara II had a stripey & 3 sails, Broadbill 2 striped marlin, Otter a sail, Shuwari a stripey & a sail, and Jasiri 2 sail.

5th February 2007

A little bit overcast in the morning but it cleared by midday and the sea was quite choppy, a lot of dead squid again.
The young Germans had a dream day following on from their 2 marlin yesterday to record a Grand Slam on Broadbill with a small blue marlin, a stripey & 3 sailfish. Kamara II also had a good day with 2 striped marlin & 3 sailfish, White Otter 1 stripey, Shuwari a small blue & Jasiri a stripey & a sail.

6th February 2007

Marcel & Dinand had planned today to be their day off and a good or lucky choice it proved to be. The fishing was much quieter today and although we had our chances from both marlin and sail it was not to be. Shuwari did manage a blue of about 180-lb as well as a stripey, and Pandora a small black marlin and a sail but Jasiri & Otter ended with nothing. Shuwari hooked an estimated 500-lb black marlin on 50-lb line on the way home but unfortunately popped the line after a long fight.

7th February 2007

Not as many seen today as earlier in the week, very calm until midday after which the wind and sea picked up. A lot of flying fish and dead squid everywhere but Kamara II with Marcel & Dinand again on board had a great day. We recorded the first Grand Slam for Kamara II with a small black marlin on 30, a stripey on 30 and 2 sailfish. Dinand also hooked up with a nice black marlin on 50 that rose to the teaser and took a lure, around 300-lb. It jumped like hell and took out most of the reel after which we were steadily recovering line. We had the reel mostly full when after 20 min the hook pulled. That would have been a very nice ending to the day!
Jasiri tagged a blue, Shuwari a stripey & a sail and Otter a sail.

8th February 2007

Much rougher today but surprisingly few fish seen for the wonderful conditions. We saw a few marlin finning but couldn't interest any of them and ended up with just a sail, a bit of a come down for the Dutch lads but still they have had 18 billfish in 5 days with 1 day to come. Broadbill also tagged a sail, Otter a stripey & a sail, Shuwari & Jasiri nothing. But the top boat today was the smallest, Pandora who had 2 striped marlin & 2 sails. Otter had run in to a big mixed pack of sails and 2 striped marlin on their way home that were knocking every thing down finally getting 1 marlin out of it.

9th February 2007

Again the sea was rather calm in the morning and the weather very sultry but in the afternoon the sea picked up and the rips started to show nicely. Jasiri tagged a blue marlin that they estimated to be about 300-lb on 50 plus 2 sails and White Otter boated a smaller blue that was mutilated by sharks. This is a very rare situation in the Pemba Channel even when a marlin has died. Kamara II tagged a stripey for Marcel on 30 and Broadbill fished by Mark & Suzie Russell from the Uk tagged a stripey for Mark and a sail. Shuwari had just one sail but there were still quite a few blacks and stripes seen today.

10th February

The sea was much rougher from the outset today but fish were rather hard to find. Brian Emmott from Mombasa got stuck in to a nice black marlin on a 50-lb line that performed rather like a blue might be expected to. Actually the teenage blacks do very often perform really well once hooked whereas once they grow big can become rather dour and sulky, darned hard work. After only 20 min the fish was brought to the boat side for tagging estimated at about 280-lb.
The Russell's on Broadbill took a stripey and 2 sail, the stripey a nice one of about 160-lb caught by Suzie. White Otter had 2 sails but Jasiri & Shuwari missed out today.

Mon 12th February

One of our long term regulars, John Carr-Hartley from Botswana fishing with another regular Doug McKendrick and Martin who had never done this sort of fishing before were just starting what was to be a wonderful week. Doug who had had bad luck in recent years started it all off with 2 stripeys in quick succession and Martin getting both his first marlin, a striped and first sail on the 1st day. Broadbill fishing out of Funzi Keys didn't manage to score but White Otter had a small black marlin and Shuwari a stripey.

Tue 13th February

John and co fishing on Kamara II again did well today with a GRAND SLAM, which is always a great achievement. John after 20-yrs of fishing for marlin finally caught his first black marlin, a beauty of about 265-lb (120-kg) on 50-lb line. The party then added a stripey and 2 sailfish to this to complete the slam. Shuwari had a sail and unfortunately Broadbill missed out.
