Lara Jade Sportfishing

Marina Do Funchal
Funchal MA, Portugal

Lara Jade Sportfishing offers big game fishing trips in the deep waters around Madeira, possibly the best place on earth to fish for Marlin. As well as the island’s monster Blues, you can try your luck against White Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Longbill Spearfish, Bluefin Tuna, and so much more. This is not your average fishing charter!

Spend the day aboard a 33’ English-built custom fishing boat. Powered by a 380 HP Cummins engine and equipped with the highest quality equipment, she’s the perfect tool for the job on your quest for giant Blue Marlin. The boat also comes with high-standard safety gear to make your trip fun and worry-free.

Even a half day trip can bring you face-to-face with sea monsters when fishing these legendary waters. Wahoo, Tuna, and even Marlin show up just a couple of casts from shore here. You can battle big game pelagics and be back in time for lunch!

Book in for a full day, and things just get better and better. Spend the whole trip trolling for Billfish. While away the day jigging and bottom fishing for Snapper, Grouper, and Amberjack. Can’t decide? Book a combo trip and do both.

Whatever you do, Captain Carmo Rodrigues and his skilled first mate will work hard to put you on the fish. They will set you up with the best equipment for your chosen species, including a selection of lures to tempt in even the fussiest fish.

All Lara Jade Sportfishing charters come with fishing licenses for everyone onboard, as well as snacks and drinks to keep your energy up throughout the day. And with grander Blue Marlin a possibility on every trip, you’re going to need all the energy you can get!
