FishBazaruto - Spanish Fly

FishBazaruto Sportfishing Charters and the fleet of excellent vessels invite you to explore one of the world’s top destinations for giant Marlin, Spearfish, and Sailfish fishing opportunities. With a year-round diversity of game fish and stunning waters full of exciting species, the Bazaruto Archipelago is your place to go.

You will be fishing aboard the “Spanish Fly”, a 25’ Magnum catamaran with plenty of space for up to 4 anglers. She comes powered by twin 150 HP Yamaha engines, fitted in 2015. The Spanish Fly is a spacious boat, ready for all kinds of fishing, including fly fishing and light tackle game fishing. She is rigged with all Garmin plotter and depth sounder, as well as Mallard’s fighting chair and outriggers.

A day out on the water will see you hitting the offshore grounds in search of a Royal Slam. You will be able to enjoy the annual Sailfish run in the winter months or head out for Blue, Black, and Striped Marlin. As well as that, Swordfish and Shortbill Spearfish are also around, ready to fight for the bait.

As well as those monsters, you will be able to test your angling skills and target Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Wahoo, King Mackerel, Queenfish, Jobfish, Barracuda, and many other species. The crew will guide you through the basics of various techniques, including vertical jigging, saltwater fly fishing, heavy tackle big game, drop shot, and ultra light tackle spinning.

All you have to do is bring your desire to catch fish; everything else will be provided along with suggestions regarding the accommodations.

About the Captain

Duarte Rato
Vilanculos, Mozambique
The son of one of the postwar pioneers of Billfishing in the Maputo area of Mozambique, Captain Duarte Rato has been fishing offshore since he was just eight years old. By the time he left school at 18 he had already been awarded his long range captain’s license and was operating a 37 ft sportfisher full time. After spending a brief period in the hotel industry after obtaining a degree in Tourism Management at Johannesburg University, he soon decided that he wanted to spend his life following his passion - fishing full time for huge Billfish and a variety of other species. He has been at the helm of Vamazi since 2003, during which time he has grown a solid reputation for being able to guide clients to giant Black Marlin. Although he has caught more Grander Black Marlin (1000 lb plus) than any other captain in the whole of Africa, he does not focus exclusively on this species: he enjoys using a whole arsenal of techniques to fish for all the various species of the Bazaruto Archipelago.
