Although I always enjoy fishing trips, I felt that I chose the wrong day. Whilst the crew did what they could, the actual fishing conditions were not quite at their best. I think the sea conditions were a little too choppy, with overcast conditions, which didn’t help either. Having said that, I would go again, but not in February.
What I did like was that fishing could start as soon as we were clear of the harbour and we didn’t need to travel many miles out to start fishing.
I would book and take another trip, probably July or August

Boat and Crew were very good communication and directions great they were ready and waiting to welcome us on board and very friendly. Weather was a bit lumpy and we were disappointed we did not catch but they tried very hard and different grounds we were out of season and that is fishing for you. We would be happy to recommend to others and we will try them again hopefully in the summer

My second Big Game fishing trip, first Islmerada now Madiera, I can only afford to do this once a year,
OK Lara Jade, well maintained, well equiped even clean toilets for madame, enthusiastic captain who gets stuck into the fishing.

Net result My first Marlin Brillaint! now it is the boat that catches the fish not me, I just crank the handle. Sorry no pics, still processing the video.

Now the boat is tag and release so my Marlin is still swimming around in the atlantic hopefully scoffing sardines. I don’t know how much he weighed but he was bigger than me.

Now we were the only boat in Funchal to catch a Marlin that day, remember that this is fishing and a blank is always possible, the boat is equipped to fish deep if you need to recover honour in the last two hours of the trip you can still pull up some fish.

Enjoy!
