Fish for big game fish in one of the best sport fishing destinations in the world: the west coast of Madeira. This area attracts some of the most sought-after game fish in the ocean, who are attracted to the warm, calm waters of the Gulf stream that passes the west coast of the island. Join Captain Franki Slijpen to find out why it is that serious anglers are lining up to come fish in Madeira.
The ‘Lucky Franki’ is a 28 ft Boston Whaler walkaround boat that is powered by twin Yamaha engines. Boston Whaler boats are well known for their sturdy construction, and this boat is no exception to the rule. Being a walkaround boat, you have 360 degree fishability, meaning once you have hooked your target fish you can easily keep hold of it. Meanwhile, the fully equipped cabin features everything you need to keep comfortable throughout your trip, while also providing shade and protection from the weather. With ample space for up to four anglers, this little boat gives you the chance to go sportfishing like a pro for a reasonable price.
From March to October, the warm seas to the west of Madeira attract a wide variety of game fish to the local waters, meaning you could be in with a chance of catching a Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, or even a Marlin. Rods ranging from 30 to 130 lbs are carried on board, and every angler on the boat will be provided with fishing gear to use for the duration of the trip.
The young but experienced crew will be with you every step of the way to make sure you are having a great time and getting the best strikes, so whatever your experience level don’t hesitate to come aboard and enjoy an unforgettable experience.

Went fishing on August 13, 2017
Spent day on the water with my wife and young adult daughters. Started off with a couple of hours of game fishing and then changed over to big game. Caught a couple of barracuda and another fish I cannot name. Then we spotted tuna and finally managed to land a 1.8m big eye probably over 150kgs in weight. Boat equipped with great Penn International reels and good rods. Friendly crew and fantastic fun.
