Mandrake is a big game fishing charter boat operated by Aquasares, with Captain Bruno Sares, and first mate Guilherme Mestre. Their goal is to make sure their clients/friends get the unique experience of fighting a big fish, either Giant Bluefin Tuna, Big Blue Marlin, or the elusive White Marlin.
The boat is a very well restored Lurs 35’ Tournament Flybridge, powered by twin 350HP Caterpillar engines, that cruise at 18kn and have a top velocity of 22kn. This sportfishing vessel has everything you need for a day on the water, and more. You’ll find a galley, a private bathroom, a bed, and a fighting chair. Enjoy a spacious deck for your fishing battles.
The trip will take you anywhere from 5 to 15 miles off the coast, where you can target Bluefin Tuna, White Marlin, and all game fish. Eventually, you can set your sights on Blue Marlin and go 45 miles out to Picos Herminios, a seamount offshore that is a "Pit Stop" for pelagic billfish, a total must when it comes to fishing grounds.
You’ll be provided with top-quality equipment from Shimano, Sunrise, Avet, Penn, Fronteira lures, Mustad, Eagle Claw, Iland lures, Squid nation teasers, and others. Your fishing licenses are also covered, as well as soft drinks and light lunch. Feel free to bring your favorite snacks and drinks and don’t forget your sun protection.
