Stunning 107 lb Amberjack Catch Report

The Latest on Our Recent Fishing Trip
Capt. Paul from Tono in Lanzarote sent this excellent catch report from Lanzarote. Several Amberjack are coming out almost on a daily basis. Last saturday, a client caught a huge 107 lb Amberjack:
"During December, and so far in January, we have had Amberjack catches on an almost daily basis, as well as Atlantic Bonito, which tend to be in the same area. Congratulations to our friend Petersen who caught 107 lb in weight on Saturday 8th January. We should also recognise the excellent work of our skipper, Gian Maria and our seaman Ibon, both of whom have been thanked and praised by our customers.
There are still plenty of fish around, in particular Herring and large mackarel, which are irresistible as bait for Amberjack.
In the first week of the year, we had three catches of around 30KG. The clients caught one large one that you can see in the photo, and had another which they lost after a long battle.
On Friday they caught three Amberjack, one of 40KG and the other two around 30KG, as well as several Bonito. We had an unusual situation where two were caught at the same time, and despite some problems, both were brought safely aboard.
On to next season for Marlin, we have plenty of reserves, especially for September and October. As before, you can book your participation in the championships, and once again the Puerto del Carmen championship is back. It hasn't been held for a few years while the port has been redeveloped, but it's back in October, with some good prizes. I will keep you informed, and remind you that we won this one back in 2002!
Writing this article about another Amberjack of around 30KG, reminds me that we need to keep looking for the customer who is going to beat the IGFA record of 73KG!
Happy New Year and Good Fishing to all!" Paul
