Aquasares Offshore Fishing Charters

Aquasares Offshore Fishing Charters is the Portuguese National Champion 2016, winning in The Tavira Offshore Classic 2016 and Vilamoura Big Game Tournaments!

Operating out of Tavira, Portugal, Aquasares have exceptional access to some of Europe’s best big game sportfishing grounds. With incredible Blue Marlin fishing just 40 miles from shore and a rich network of artificial reefs closer to home, this diverse fishery will delight serious sports fishermen and young families alike.

You will be fishing aboard a 26 ft Starfisher that has recently been restored to make it the ideal choice for fishing charters. Powered by two 150 HP Volvo Penta engines, the boat can cruise at around 26 knots, giving you access to areas that less powerful vessels can’t reach on a day trip. It is equipped with the full complement of safety equipment and features a range of marine electronics to get you where the fish are. It is also fully rigged for sportfishing, with outriggers, downriggers, and a center rigger all on board. For your additional comfort, there is also a toilet and shower.

Aquasares Offshore Fishing Charters run a variety of trips to suit every taste. You can catch the fish of a lifetime, hooking a grander Blue Marlin weighing up to 1,200 lbs, or you could have the time of your life fishing with light tackle for the energetic White Marlin up to 120 lbs. If you want to see the smile on your kids’ faces, then you can take your whole family reef fishing, an activity that will delight anglers from 8 to 80. Whether you want to fish with light or heavy tackle, use a fighting chair or stand harness, troll, bait and switch, or fly fish, Aquasares will cater to your needs and put you on the fish.

Everything you need to fish is provided - all you need to bring is your good mood!

After fighting the first Blue Marlin I got addicted... so I decided I had to provide this same experience to other anglers, using trolling or bait & switch techniques.
