Additional Information

We offer some absolutely amazing bluewater big game fishing holidays where you can target Marlin, Sailfish, Dorado and Tuna to name but a few of the most sought-after big game fish. Travelling to the most prolific big game fishing destinations in the world, you can also target some of the smaller game fish species including  Roosterfish, Giant Trevally and Amberjack, using a whole variety of both traditional and new tactics.

One of our most big game adventures is Rodrigues Islands. One day you could be doing battle with Blue and Black Marlin on stand up and fight tackle, the next you could be standing toe to toe with a huge Dogtooth Tuna. The other unique thing with this destination is that everything is included meaning you can turn up with no fishing tackle and be supplied with it all, including fishing outfits, vertical jig fishing outfits, trolling equipment and even some light fly rods.

Palmas de Cortez Baja is one of the only purpose built fishing resorts in the whole of Mexico and right on its doorstep is the stunning Sea of Cortez which is world famous for numbers of Blue, Black and Striped Marlin. Along with these supercharged Billfish are the ballerinas of the ocean, the Sailfish. They get large runs of these from April to September and in any given day you could raise between 5–10 Sails. The other species which attracts thousands of anglers each year is the amazing Rooster fishery.

Crocodile Bay is a world class big game fishing and eco-resort is world class for both the fishing and their service. Set amongst 44 acres of the lushest dense tropical rainforest your senses will be in overdrive as the smells and sounds of the jungle surround you each day. The fishing is separated into two different areas, inshore and offshore. Inshore fishing is a lure anglers paradise as there are many different species that are more than willing to smash a well-presented popper and shallow diving lure, from the toothy Cubera Snapper to hard fighting Roosters, they all pull hard. Then you have the offshore fishing for huge Blue Marlin, Dorado and huge schools of Tuna.

For many years now, Madeira has entered the Marlin world championships and on more than one occasion have won top prize. This destination is known around the globe for the place to head to get catch yourself a grander Marlin (1000lb Blue Marlin). As you can imagine with fish of this size it’s not a numbers game, it’s like any specimen hunting, it’s a waiting game. If you are lucky enough to catch one of these huge Marlin it is going to be big! This destination is not for beginners, it’s for people who have caught many small Marlin and are in search of that fish of a lifetime. Our skipper and boat have been fishing out of Funchal for many years now and have managed to build a healthy amount of granders under their belt.
