Bass Catch In Santa Clara has one main objective, and that is to get you on that Santa Clara Bass bite! Captain Joaquim Rosalino knows the lake intimately and will do his best to make sure you have an adventure to remember for years to come. Regardless of whether you might be a novice angler or a professional, you’ll definitely want to check it out.

Your boat for the day will be a 19’ Nitro Z7 Bass boat that runs on a 150 HP Mercury engine and can reach a most impressive speed of 65 knots. It’s also equipped with a fishfinder device, to make sure you never lose track of your catch. There’s plenty of room aboard for you to bring a pair of friends along for the ride if you want to.

As for the fishing itself, Santa Clara is home to some fantastic Largemouth Bass fishing. Not only that, but Carp are also abundant, with some specimens going over 10 kilograms in weight. Capt. Joaquim recommends the practice of catch and release as he is devoted to protecting the fishery for future generations.

He will provide you with the necessary rods, reels, and terminal tackle you’ll need for the trip, along with the required fishing licenses. All you need to bring is a pair of sunglasses, a camera to record your adventure, and you’re ready for a time to remember!

Explore the beautiful waters of Portugal with Bass Catch in Santa Clara and have the time of your life!

I became a fisherman at Santa Clara Lake with my grandfather a long time ago on a small wooden boat. We had great moments with many and large Bass and I very much appreciate the fight and the magnificent Bass attacks.
