Captain
Nuno Goncalves

Member since November 2016 Calheta, Portugal
Background
On the 4th of July in 2016, Captain Nuno won the Blue Marlin World Cup at the helm of Blue Makaira. Madeiran by birth, Capt. Duarte Nuno Vasconcelos Goncalves has been fishing the waters of Madeira since he was a boy, guided by his uncle (who also spent his formative years in a similar manner). As Nuno entered his teens, his passion grew stronger, putting to sea with his brother in a 10' boat (with a 4 HP engine!) to explore the waters of Madeira. There they fished for their supper, an idyllic life for two young men. Fascinated by the sea and fishing, Nuno’s big opportunity came in 2004 when the Calheta Marina opened. With the arrival of Big Game boats, his moment had arrived. He crewed and worked on the boats beside some of the great Big Game Captains and crews that had flocked to Madeira to fish for the best Blue Marlin that the oceans have to offer.
