Madeira Fishing Charters

Member since May 2016 Calheta, Portugal
Background
Madeira Fishing charters was founded in 2012 and is owned and operated by Captain Anders Ekstrand. In 2023, we changed our name to Madeira Fishing Charters as we introduced a new and bigger boat called Prime, a Cabo 35 Express. Madeira Fishing Charters has developed to one of the most successful and appreciated charter boats in Madeira with hundreds of happy clients. Captain Anders has more than 40 years of fishing experience ranging from fly fishing in the Nordics to Big Game fishing in Florida, Mexico and the coasts of Africa.
Techniques
My favorite style of fishing is without doubt Trolling. There is nothing to compare with the sudden ripping of line from your reel as a good fish takes your lure. Watching a Marlin approach the spread and lighting up is something to be experienced and is very, very special. For stubbornness and dogged scrapping you would have to go a long way to beat a sizeable Tuna as he immediately descents into the depths upon striking.
