San Nicoloa, Cape Verde Islands – We have now confirmed a 1,200 lbs. Blue Marlin released on June 30th. While fishing off of Sao Nicolau, Capt. Ferdi Worst on the Bebiche released a Blue Marlin that was right at the 1,000 mark as well as this monster 1,200 lber.
This means that Bebiche had a Double Grander day. This is the first that we know of since the Canary Islands in 2009.
More information as it comes in. As if the Cape Verdes were not isolated enough, San Nicoloa is more remote….
UPDATE – From Capt. Ferdi Worst
The name of the anglers are Jon Albisu and Rafael Modrego from Spain.
One of them with the Lure Big Grander and the other with a Soft Lures 31 cm Mold Craft.
The LIne 130 lbs and the fighting time of the first one (1050 lbs ) was 55 minutes
The second one ( 1200 lbs ) about nearly 1 and a half hour
