Opportunities like this don’t come around very often. FishBazurato Sportfishing are giving you the once-in-a-lifetime chance to fish the Bazaurto Archipelago in Mozambique, one of the top places in the world for giant Black Marlin fishing, aboard Mozambique’s top billfish boat, Vamizi. Captained by Duarte Rato, this boat has caught and released more Grander Black Marlins (weighing over 1000 lbs) than any other crew in Africa, with no fewer than eight Black Marlin weighing well over 1000 lbs having been caught by this boat.
While Vamizi has been designed and built with Billfishing in mind, she is a very versatile boat that can be used to fish successfully for all the various species that call the archipelago’s waters home. Custom built by Gulfcraft Marine, this walk around vessel features Garmin and Furuno electronics for first class fish finding, and her trolling spread is made unbeatable by Mallard’s carbon fibre outriggers and a Penn downrigger. With a Nova Big-Game fighting chair and a Grander series chair harness on board, you will have everything you need to tackle a huge Billfish or tackle an awe-inspiring Giant Trevally.
While Black Marlin fishing in this area is nothing short of fantastic, it is by no means the end of the story. Blue and Striped Marlin fishing can be found out wide, and every Winter sees the annual Sailfish run in full force. With Shortbill Spearfish and Broadbill Swordfish also on the cards, it is possible to catch a Grand Slam, or even a Royal Slam, in one day.
It doesn’t stop at Billfish, though. The waters off Bazaruto are also the perfect place to plug with poppers and stick baits for GTs, Yellowfin Tunas and more, to experiment with vertical jigging or fly fishing, to fish with conventional light tackle for Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, and Mackerel, or to try ultra light spinning for Queen Mackerel, Jacks or more. Whatever technique you want to use, FishBazaruto Sportfishing Charters will provide all you need for an unforgettable experience.
