Weekend fishing report from Durban

Weekends fishing Report. We fished on Saturday and Sunday and for both days the weather man got it completely wrong as we were expecting flat seas but got a stiff SW chop instead. Water is very warm and crystal clear.
07h00 on Saturday morning we hooked up a small Black Marlin and after about 30min the angler gave up on the fight and we lost the fish, man on man did that just drop my spirits low d...own. We then got a few small Oceanic Bonitos and some very small Yellowfin Tuna. After that we went for bottoms and got some Slinger.
Sunday morning we went out for a 5hr trip and at about 05h30 as we were setting our spread we hooked into a monster Wahoo of at least 30Kg, and it was still dark, he was right there at the boat and we could see him when he managed to bite through the leader and so we lost him, after that all we managed was Oceanic Bonitos and tiny Yellowfin Tuna.
A very disappointing weekend losing 2 great fish.
