"It is not the great days of fishing or tournament wins that make me love it so much, it’s the small details of each day that remind me of how lucky I am. It can be the most action-filled day of White Marlin or Tuna fishing or the longest, roughest, and most uncomfortable crossing I’ve ever made, either way, it’s my job. And I’m happy to do it. Of course, it’s not all record-breaking days and tournament wins. There are certainly frustrating days but then I realize that I am doing something that I love. When we raise a double or a triple, I forget about looking up and get excited about fishing all over again." Captain Pedro holds numerous tournament awards from All Millionaire Pacific Circuit Tournaments, the Los Cabos Billfish Tournament, and the South Africa WorldChampionship – to name a few. Actually, and due to the corona (covid 19); measures; we are certified by Turismo de Portugal, complying with all health measures...
