What People Are Saying About Madeira

"Full day trip big game fishing with Captain Graham."

fished with Gavito - Big Game Fishing on April 18, 2018

It depends on their experience. It also depends on whether you are solo or in a group. Even inexperienced anglers can try for 1000 lb Marlin.!! We all have to start somewhere. In the end it is down to personal choice. Go with Gavito and Graham Venters and you can try both big game and bottom fishing all in one day.!!
