You can try everything you like. The captains always will ask you what you want to fish and how. I have chosen trolling but there is also bottom fishing,... We rent an appartement near the harbour. So it was an easy walk in the morning (5 minutes)to the boat. And as you leave very early in the morning you can get breakfast at the harbour promenade. There is a nice Cafe which was open at 8 when I arrived.

Not to worry, the people from Madeira are so helpful. Just take sun cream and a coat as it can get cold at night.

Bottom-fishing out by the islands is awesome, super-rich with fish. Smaller fish but still very fun.

If you can wait as late as possible to book so you get the right weather conditions and be patient !
