Captain
Tó Neves

Member since March 2016 Calheta, Portugal
Background
I have been fishing with my father since I was able to hold a rod. It has always been the driving passion of my life. When I was 20, I got my first job as a first mate and that's when I got involved in serious big game fishing. I started skippering at the age of 24, and began entering tournaments, ranking national champion twice in a row in 2007 and 2008, and taking bronze in the FIPS world championship in Xabia in 2009. Since then I have competed and ranked in many championships and skippered several boats in the Algarve, until I decided to buy my own boat and take it back home. I was tired of traveling 100 miles or more in a day when I could simply pull out of the harbor back home and be in the deep waters and with the biggest fish immediately.
Techniques
I like trolling on good lures, and drift fishing for Tunas and Sharks. In general I prefer using lures, but will use live bait when the fish are being a little tricky.
