KINGFISHER NEWS UPDATE 10TH JANUARY 2011

Dear All,
 
 
It has only been a few days since the last update so this one will be short and sweet! The marlin fishing continues to be good on the rips with most days seeing at least one boat coming home with two or more marlin. Having said that it is nowhere near the standard of last year so we hope it will continue on the up. There are still quite a few sailfish being seen north of Malindi although it is very changeable as on some days the fish don’t come up at all.
  
The weather is still very hot and humid during the day and then cools down at night. There is no hint of rain and the ground is drying up fast. The wind has picked up somewhat from mid week and most nights have been very windy.

Joss de Kok and his group from South Africa had some good fishing last week. In fact all members of the group caught marlin apart from Joss himself but hopefully that will be rectified this week. On the 6th Neptune and Tina, both with members of his group on board caught striped marlin as did Snowgoose with Klaus Dieter Jung on board. On the 7th Neptune had a black marlin and two sailfish, Tina had five sailfish, Eclare three sailfish and Snark and Snowgoose had one each.
 
On the 8th Neptune had another striped marlin out on the rips. The other boats stayed closer in and all caught a number of sailfish each.
 
Neptune made it six days in a row with a marlin and two sailfish. On the 9th. Eclare was not out and the other boats chose to stay closer inshore as the wind had been howling in the night and the sea was very rough .The sailfish obviously thought it was rough too as none were caught. Tina got a nice GT of 30+ kgs as well as some other smaller game fish.

Today, the 10th January is much calmer than yesterday. Quite a few marlin were seen early on in the rips but it has slowed down since then after a good start. Eclare had a striped marlin and two sailfish early on and Tina had four sailfish by 10 am.
 
Neptune has some days available in February between the 8th and the 27th. That is normally prime marlin time so for those of you who are looking for a few days fishing let me know.
That’s it for this week.
 
 
Take care,
 
Adrian
