Default Africa Report - Not your usual TBH trip

Swapped the bows for the rods.

We had an amazing trip to Cape Verde. Fished 8 straight days ending with fishing The Blue Marlin World Cup ($1M first place prize). We caught two during the tournament, just not big enough.

Everything about this trip was awesome. Very remote island, amazing fishery, cool little fishing villages, etc. We stayed at a village on another island one night. Moored up and they sent a row boat for us. Cool stuff.

Great times with my great fishing crew. Now it's 36 hours home and jumping straight on the boat to get back to fishing.

Possibly the craziest thing I have ever seen on the GS.

#1 Somali pirates

#2 Hurricanes coming off the west coast of Africa.

Glad you are not tied up in a grass hut in the middle of a hurricane waiting for your family to send 7 figures for your release..............

It ate a trolled marlin lure. It was a first for me. We got it boat side, took some pics, unhooked (that was fun) and let it go.

Good question. Upside down means the fish was released to fight another day.
