Madeira Fishing is the ultimate experience for any fisherman. There are various reasons why fishing in Madeira has become so popular. The pleasent climatic conditions in which to fish in, together with the calm blue waters in which the creatures lurk in, sets the ideal mood for the hunt.
The most sought after fish is the massive Atlantic Blue Marlin, whose avarage weight is around 700lbs. These fish live in warm waters relaitvely close to the surface and once landed they will put up a fight you won't easily forget. If you manage to bring it in, that will be the most satisfying fishing experience, that will stay with you, for life.
Madeira Sport Fishing
Weather you're an experienced big game fisherman, out to catch that "world record" or a novice, fishing for the thrill of it, then Madeira is the place to come, for sportfishing. The chances of a angler, landing a real "grander" are really high. A "grander" is a fish that tips the scales over 1000lbs.
Apart of the king of billfish, the Giant Blue Marlin, a worthwhile sport is presented by the Blue Fin Tuna which have reached the scales of 800lbs as well as the Big Eye Tuna which normally weigh in around 250lbs.
Most people expect Deep Sea Fishing to be far offshore, but in Madeira's case, the opposite applies. Because of its very deep waters hook ups are quite common just outside the harbour and all along the coast line quite close inshore.
We operate on
a tag and release, no kill policy, on all Madeira Big Game Fish. However, in the event of a potential world record being caught we will comply with the
anglers request to kill the fish for record submission purposes.
