Member since January 2014 Calheta, Portugal
Background
Skipper Matt Waddell specializes in catching and releasing the huge Blue Marlin that Madeira is famous for. He also has a reputation for bringing in some massive Tunas, from Bigeye to Bluefin. Madeira has become famous among those in the know for having some of the best big game fishing on the planet.We also offer jigging, popping, and trolling for wahoo, dorado, snappers, blue fish, amberjacks, skip jack and many other species. The best fishing grounds start immediately outside Calheta marina, so no time is wasted. There is nothing quite like the extreme fishing here in Madeira, especially from the very safe and stable Boston Whaler Outrage `Mako´, this is fishing at its best. And we take it very seriously. the best fishing challenge there is!
Techniques
Trolling for Big Blue and White Marlin, Tuna. Wahoo, Dorado, Albacore. jigging ,popping, bottom fishing . The `Mako´ is a very stable and safe platform to fish from, custom yacht quality build, the hull is classed as unsinkable due to the hull being completely filled with hard foam. Has the feel of a much larger boat with plenty of seating.
