DBM Azores - Tekila

Cais Da Madalena
Madalena AC, Portugal

Fish for large pelagic game fish in the clear blue waters of the Azores, a sport fishing hotspot that deserves all the praise it gets from its devoted fishermen.

Who doesn’t want to catch a huge Blue Marlin, possibly the king of all game fish? These are frequent visitors to Azores’ waters as soon as the waters reach 22°C, usually between July and October. They, and many other fish, flock to the area thanks to its upwellings that bring nutrients and bait fish close to the surface. It’s not just record breaking Marlin that come this way though - huge Tuna are abundant in these waters from April onwards.

It’s not just about catching these pelagic giants though - there are some fantastic and great fun fish to be caught jigging the banks and bottom structures, such as the Greater Amberjack, Guelly Jack, Yellowmouth Barracuda, Bluefish, Seabream, Skipjack Tuna, Atlantic Bonito, Dusky Grouper and more. In short, this area is a sportsfisherman’s dream.

‘Tekila’ is a 32 ft Luhrs that is powered by 2 Cummins 370 HP engines. The boat is equipped with outriggers and a fighting chair, as well as a range of marine electronics including fishfinder, radar, GPS, and autopilot.

    Proclaimed by many as the fishing of the century, is indeed a very emotional fishing, with catches of large size and great diversity of species. Type of fishing something physically demanding, but full of adrenaline, taken with the boat drifting or anchored on rocky bottoms at depths ranging between 15m and 100m. We visited local fishing privileged for this fishing technique, where depart after each journey, with a “handful” of good times to remember.
