Each year from mid-May, some of the largest Blue Marlin in the East Atlantic start to arrive off the south coast of Madeira.
With an average size of around 650lb and one in ten being a Grander, it's little wonder that this small island in the mid-Atlantic has been the centre of attention for big game anglers for nearly 2 decades.
Fishing for Blue Marlin in Madeira doesn't involve early starts and long runs to the fishing grounds. These giant fish are found just 10 minutes out of Funchal marina where the boat is docked.
A typical day's Blue Marlin fishing will see the boat leave the marina at 10.00hr and fish for a full day, returning to port at 17.00hr. During the day you will be provided with lunch and complimentary water, soft drinks and beer. All you need to bring is a hat and suncream!
For Blue Marlin fishing we use 4 x Penn International rod and reel combos, all loaded with pre tested IGFA rated line. Lures are from a selection from Marlin Magic / Gary Eoff, Joe Yee, Legend, Black Bart, Moldcraft to name but a few.
