Wahoo & Black Marlin caught from Robin`s boat Piromero in the vicinity of The kastele R/bay

Phillip Marx caught the 110kg Marlin and we successfully tagged & released the fish & the 18kg Wahoo we got whilst trolling for Marlin.

Worth mentioning, the sea conditions were quite bad, although barometric pressure once again proved it is best to fish on a falling barometer.

Skipper during this Compo: Robin Vermaak.
