Bazaruto – 2nd Grander of the Year


Grander Black being Released

Bazaruto, Mozambique – We have just our 2nd Confirmed Grander of the year, but we will take it. Vamizi released a 1,000+ Black Marlin. It appears the big girls are waiting until the summertime (Northern Hemisphere) to make their big appearance in 2011.

Capt. Duarte Rato’s first mate Alex was running Vamizi when this big black marlin showed up on the scene. They got here on a lure, which is pretty common down in Bazaruto. Fight time was right at 3 Hours and 30 Minutes.

This is an experienced crew and have 5 Granders to their credit, so we feel very comfortable about the estimate.

More details and hopefully some better pictures to come.
