Alabote Sport Fishing Azores

Pontoon B ‘Pêro De Teive’…
Ponta Delgada AC, Portugal

Alabote Sport Fishing Charters specializes in trolling for big game species such as Blue and White Marlin, Bluefin, Bigeye, Yellowfin, and Longfin Tuna, Mako Shark, and Swordfish. They have been operating out of Ponta Delgrada, on the island of São Miguel, part of the Azores archipelago since 1998.

They fish aboard the “Alabote”, a 32 ft Bayliner Explorer 3270 that was built in the USA and has undergone a full restoration by the captain and owner of the company. The boat is well equipped with everything you need for big game fishing, with a very spacious deck, a Game Fisher fighting chair, a range of Garmin electronics and full safety equipment. The boat is powered by twin 260 HP Yanmar engines and can comfortably cater for up to six anglers.

You will be fishing with top of the range big-game equipment, with 80 lb Shimano Tiagra reels and Penn International curved butt rods supplied, or, if you would prefer to fish with stand up tackle, Alutecnos stand-up rods are also available. Penn and Shimano light tackle of 20, 30, and 50 lb weight is also provided, and Australian style bucket and stand-up harnesses are also taken on board.

Your experienced crew is made up of an expert captain and two deck mates, one of whom is a marine biologist. The whole crew has extensive experience of fishing the local waters, having lived and fished in the Azores all their lives.
