CAPE VERDE: last report from Capt Zak Conde

Hello to all from the paradise of the atlantic blue marlin. 
sorry for the delay, but i had long days with lots of action and moving from island to island and spending nights on the mothership itoma for two days with john and his team.

16-04-2012 second day for john in sao nicolau island. 1 for 3, a 300lbs. we pull the hooks off one around 800lbs, a beautiful fish. nice conditions, but not so many around.

17-04-2012 zero, yes a day with no fish. sometimes its true - no fish today.

18-04-2012 0 for 1, pull the hooks off one around 500lbs.

19-04-2012 a great day and a bad day, 5 for 14 bites. our friend john had no luck on the pitch and on lures on his turn. its bad fishing, no luck this day. we hook up fish on bait and lures - 350, 300, 200, 400 and 275lbs. we lost two nice fish on this day. fishing out of sao vicente, fantastic weather and lots of action for all the fleet.

20-04-2012 another great day, 650, 550 and a 250lbs, all on lures. makaira and andy moyes lures have been doing all the work. they are fantastic lures.

21-04-2012 last day for john, bob and wendy. 2 for 2, a nice 600lbs and a 200lbs blue marlin. they had a great time again, john this time had not most luck but this is the way fishing goes. thank you to all for been again on this part of the world.
