Wanna fish? Go with these guys, and you will definitely get some, and surely not be disappointed.

We went out with the big boat around 3 pm - we were 4, but only 3 would fish. After a slow start, while looking for the best fishing spots, the frenzy started - 3 dentex caught in 15 minutes, around 7 kilos each. The crew was really helpful, they know the spots, the techniques and besides that they provided a very entertaining overall experience.
We had 5 dentex in total, then we changed spot again and we caught and released 2 barracudas, and saw a few amber jacks but caught none of them.

Thank you, Madeira Sight Casting!

P.S. our first trip was so nice, as we decided to go again, so 2 days later, on Friday, we went again on the sea.
After a slow start, we managed to hook 3-4 Dentex fish, and successfully land 2 of them, including a large female. We then left the deep sea to go spinning/casting near shore to get barracuda (we got 3 !) and maybe some amberjack or wahoo. We had some chases with amberjacks, but we only hooked barracudas.
So, the second day was quite rewarding too!!
I will place some new pictures too.

We had an excellent day fishing. The whole experience was better than we anticipated. Ricardo and Sergio were an incredible crew, so friendly, welcoming and helpful. We caught good sized red snapper and amber jack, and were even lucky enough to see dolphins and flying fish! Really was a thoroughly enjoyable trip and we will be recommending to friends and family. Thank you!!
