CVS Fishing

CVS Fishing offers unforgettable experiences both on the land and in the water with fishing taking place on the shore and on the boat in the wildest hot spots.

Your adventure will be an all-inclusive accommodation in a lodge. Terrain vehicles will transport you to and from your fishing adventure. Fishing equipment, internal transfer, airport pickup, camping equipment and a team of guides who speak English, Italian and Spanish are going to be a part of your trip.

Since you will travel around the island every day, fishing from a new spot, the accommodation will be in different places. Some of the base accommodation are located in local villages and some on the beaches of Cape Verde. All accommodations have a bathroom and shower facilities.

You will be targeting Amberjack, various Sharks, Big Caranx, Grouper, Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Barracuda and many other species.

Fishing equipment is made of the top-level Shimano rods and reels, Yamaga blanks rods and Ripple fisher rods.

During the trip, you will have the chance to go out for dedicated boat fishing sessions. The Jigging technique here is amazing: big Amberjack up to 60kg, Yellowfin Tuna, Wahoo and Grouper are also on the list.

During boat transfers to reach the fishing spots, it’s possible to go trolling for the tropical billfish that include massive Blue Marlin. Cape Verde is a premium spot for Blue Marlin fishing, as the climate suits them perfectly and they populate the local waters in very healthy numbers.

Your jigging fishing adventure takes place aboard a 23’ custom-built saltwater fishing boat. It’s powered by two 50 HP Yahama engines that make it perfect for getting 4 anglers to the most productive fishing grounds efficiently.  Safety equipment, electronics, GPS, fishfinder and fighting chair are available on the boat.

CVS Fishing crew will provide everything you will need on your adventure, so book today for a once in a lifetime fishing adventure!

10 Day Trip on August 20, 2017
It is not easy to face an expedition in Africa, without having everything planned. That little or nothing was left to chance,...
