Cape Verde Marlin - 40’ Di Meu

Alto Fortim CP701 Mindelo/Sao …
Mindelo, Cape Verde

Captain Tamara Thompson operates ‘Di Meu’, a 40ft Pacemaker powered by Yanmanr 6LYA2 440HP engine with a maximum passenger capacity of 6 per trip. The vessel is furnished with a standard range of navigational utilities including GPS, Furuno sounder and plotter, 2 VHF transmitters as well as a Furuno 64 mile range color radar. A Pompanette fighting chair and harness can also be found among the boat’s amenities.

Captain Tamara Thompson has been fishing the prolific local waterways of Cape Verde for more than 20 years, specializing in deep sea fishing for a variety of big game pelagics cruising the offshore waters. Located in Mindelo, Di Meu goes after the likes of Wahoo, Yellowfin Tuna, Dorado, Sharks, and of course, the Blue Marlin.

Helping Tamara Thompson in his mission to provide his guests with an entirely immersive fishing experience, Kenyan-born Steve Webb and second mate caboverdian both have a wealth of Marlin fishing experience, and work hard to make sure your visit to the Cape Verde hotspots is as productive as possible. Between the 3 of them, the crew speaks Portuguese, Spanish, English and French.

Tackle-wise, the boat is outfitted with Lee outriggers, 4x80lbs and 2x50lbs Normic rods, 80/130lbs and 50/80lbs Shimano Reels, as well as 30lbs and 50lbs Penn Senator stand up rods and reels. Both live and artificial bait are regularly utilized on Di Meu, depending on the season and the species that you’d like to target. Snacks, bottled water and soft drinks are provided for the group by the crew.

I started fishing at 17 years old in 1973, and never stopped. I moved to Cape Verde in January 2002, to make it a career.
