About the Captain

Tó Neves
Calheta, Madeira, Portugal
Member since March 2016
I have been fishing with my father since I was able to hold a rod, and it has always been the driving passion in my life. at the age of 10 I started "borrowing" my dad's boat to go fishing. I got my first job as a first mate when I was 20, and that's when i got involved in serious big game fishing. I started skippering at the age of 24, and began entering tournaments, ranking national champion twice in a row in 2007 and 2008, and taking bronze in the FIPS world chamionship in Xabia in 2009. Since then I have competed and ranked in many championships and skippered several boats in the Algarve, until i decided to buy my own boat and take it back home. I was tired of travelling 100 miles or more in a day when I could simply pull out of the harbor back home and be in the deep waters and with the biggest fish immediately. (IGFA Certified Capt)

Good couple of days despite somewhat indifferent weather. Quality boat and gear run by professional and friendly crew. Hooked (unfortunately in the bill) a big Blue Marlin on day 2 only to lose it after 20 crazy minutes!! So close…...

Excellent trip. Extremely professional. Weather super .  unfortunately fish were too lazy and stayed in bed !
No fault of the skipper or crew who worked exceptionally hard to find quarry.
Going again.  Need we say more !!!!!
