Diogo and Eduardo were very friendly and welcoming, sharing information about what they were planning, the tackle and tactics. They are clearly passionate about fishing and providing a great experience for their clients and were always working as a team to respond to changing conditions. We had a fantastic day and would go out with them again without any hesitation. As it happens we didn’t catch anything (we were trolling for big game and knew it wasn’t certain) but we very much enjoyed their company and would absolutely recommend them to anyone.

Die Beste Entscheidung und das Highlight unseres Azorenurlaubs war das Thunfischfischen mit Eduardo von Azores Fishing. Meine Frau und ich sind seit 2 Jahren verheiratet und wir versuchen jedes Jahr einen anderen Ort auf der Welt kennenzulernen. Mit meinem gebrochenen Portugiesisch, welches ich mir in Brasilien angeeignet hatte kam ich sehr weit. Aber auch weil Eduardo perfekt Englisch spricht. Er holte uns ab und wir drei haben uns direkt super verstanden. Super lustiger Typ! Auf den Azoren ist einer der letzten Hot Spots, wo man als Privatangler noch Thunfische fangen kann. Und was für Brocken da rumschwimmen. Abgemacht war, dass wir solange rumfahren bis wir was ansehnliches gefangen haben. Nach 2 Std biss einer an. Was für ein Koloss! Ich bin absoluter Anfänger von daher hat Eduardo das meiste erledigt, aber wir haben viel geholfen! Wie anstrengend das war, merkte ich erst als der Kampf vorbei war! Soviel Adrenalin pumpt dir durch die Venen!
Eduardo hat uns viel über das Meer und über die Geschichte der Azoren und Portugal erzählt, er wurde nicht müde und unsere Neugier endete nicht.
Wir haben uns schon für nächstes Jahr angemeldet, da wollen wir weiter rausfahren und ich möchte mehr über das Angeln lernen. Es hat mich gepackt! Das Angel-Fieber.

Meine Frau, die anfangs skeptisch war, hat es auch nie bereut.
Am nächsten Tag trafen wir uns nochmal mit Eduardo und wir aßen die dicksten frischesten Thunfischsteaks die es auf der Welt gibt! Kein Wunder, dass Japanische Köche bereit sind fast Millionenbeträge für 100/200 Kilo Thunfische auszugeben.

Azores Fishing kann ich nur sehr empfehlen. Ich hatte nie das Gefühl, dass es langweilig wurde, oder unsicher. Eduardo ist mit soviel Herzblut bei der Sache, das steckt einfach an!


Danke - Obrigado - Eduardo
Bis bald - Até à proxima
