Member since May 2016

Ponta Delgada, Portugal

Background
The proximity with the sea and the interests in Marine life made me to search for a skipper certification 9 years ago. Once I had the Local Skipper certification, I started working in a Whale and Dolphin watching skipping a 30" glass bottom boat. Two years later I had the opportunity to join the fisherman community becoming First deck mate in a local sport fishing company. After 2 months I was the Captain of a fishing vessel (Pacemaker 31") and I was in charge of all the fishing activity. In 2012 I bought my first fishing boat to start my sport fishing company that continued developing the main activity until today.
Techniques
Tuna fishing, trolling surface lures, adrift or anchored with live bait . Jigging is a good technique to achieve great results if searching for Tunas and pelagic species. Big game fishing is practiced during the months of April until the end of September. Tunas, Blue and White Marlins are the species target but Wahoos and Dorados are common catches during August and September. If Jigging is the selected technique the possibilities are endless. Since 20 mt depth up to 150 mt we can fight and capture great bottom sea and pelagic species. Bottom fishing is a very interesting technique where the sea knowledge is requested. Coast trolling for Barracudas, Mackerels, Seabreams and others species can be very energizing and a good choice to spend a fishing journey with Azores Fishing Center.

Coast fishing

June 14, 2016

We got out of the harbour just after lunch to get the right tide at the fishing spot. We went out for half day of "mixed" coast fishing. We started bottom fishing with great results on captures and by… Read Full Report →
