Background
Born in Italy in 1976, I have my first fishing rods at age of 6 and since there never stop. Finish school I get my skipper license and start travel the world learning as much I can. I love big game fishing, and Blue Malrin.
Techniques
On Board "My Victoria"when we fish for blue Marlin we normally fish 2 lure and 3 teaser, 90% pitch bait techniques, that's the best and most successful way to catch Blue Marlin.

Went fishing on Friday, May 29, 2015

I fished five days in the Cape Verdes in late May/early June with Captain Marco Canu aboard My Victoria.  My friends from South Africa and I had a fantastic experience with Captain Marco and the crew.  After fishing in most of the major marlin locations around the world over the past ten years, I have to say that the boat is excellent and very well-equipped and boasts one of the best crews around, including South African wireman Danie Schoeman.  We caught nine blue marlin over five days, but more importantly, we had a really memorable time just being on the water everyday with the My Victoria team. Captain Marco and the crew provide their clients with a truly world class fishing experience.  We are planning to go back again next season to see if we can get the big girls to swim up for a visit!

Me a 68 year old pensioner, that’s what they think, Fished many places around the world but this has to be the top Blue Marlin Location in the Atlantic. Third time here best ever trip.
The third time I have fished with Marco. Firstly in Ascension Island when he was the deckie.
Last year in Cape Verde when was a Captain on another boat my highlight of that trip was a personal best Yellow fin Tuna of 104 kg, + 9 marlin to 600 lb on a 5 day trip with my pal.
Fishing as a solo angler, This year was on Marco’s new boat ‘My Victoria’, real nice boat plenty of space, top rate cabin and draws fish well, then it is up to me to hook them, like all marlin fishing can be frustrating at times, or adreniline pumping brilliance, This was my trip of my life time, 16 marlin in 9 days on lures, then doubling my best ever marlin fishing in a day from 4 to 8, on 50lb stand up two fish 500 lb+ and 600 lb+  my second best fish on 50lb.
we fished in some pretty rough conditions on the outer banks, perfect boat for these conditions. A brilliant time. excellent helpful crew.
Will be back there next year on ’ My Victoria’  with Marco and Crew.
