They have a wealth of experience between them, combined with a love of teaching their customers the tricks of the angling trade. Captain Frankie has over 30 years of fishing experience in the local waters in both fishing as well as charter tours for families. He's uniquely qualified to offer both a fantastic service as well as professional support for anglers. Their favorite catches are Blue Fin Tuna, Albacore Tuna, and the colorful Mahi Mahi. Captain Frankie also loves the role of a sportfishing captain on a charter, teaching his customers not only fishing but also the wonderful local history of Malta, as well as showing them a unique side of the local culture.
