Fish with the captain who has caught Blue Marlin more than 250 times! Pull Up Sportfishing and Captain Zak are based in the Azores, a place famous for its amazing big game fishing. The list of amazing catches doesn’t end up with Blue Marlin, as he caught countless Bluefin Tunas, White Marlins, and Big Eye Tunas.

The boat you’ll be fishing from is a 20’ Valiant inflatable outboard. This 20’ RIB has everything you need for a successful jigging trip. The boat is equipped with navigational electronics to make sure you can trace the fish with ease. It also features an ice box for the catch and a live bait well.

On a typical trip, you’ll be jigging, bottom fishing, or drifting for a variety of species. These include Grouper, Snapper, Amberjack, and different species of Tuna.

Your fishing equipment is completely covered and the crew will also supply enough drinks and snacks. You can bring your food and don’t forget sunglasses or rain gear. Catch cleaning and filleting is also included in the price.
