|BIG GAME BLUE MARLIN|
With fully boats equipped, our experience and passion are the basic ingredients to ensure the best for this specific fishing for the blue marlin.
The geology of these islands can allow to find this magnificent pelagic predator only a few miles from the coast of Mindelo, the base of our fishing center. North of Sao, San Pedro, San Antao, Sao Nicolau and North West Bank * are the spot more known and renowned worldwide in number and size.
* North West Bank is a seamount that from 2000 meters reach almost the surface at 43 m. It is 40 nautical from Mindelo and is accessible by a extra charges contribution for fuel and if the meto marine conditions allow the journey.
The season begins at mid-March to get to the end of July, with many strikes. According to the conditions of the water temperatures, this incredible predator remains in the waters surrounding the island until the end of October. From July, in addition to Marlin, that are not as numerous as before but of larger size, starts the season of yellowfin tuna and dolphin fish of considerable size.
The exits are full day and last 8/10 hours of fishing, according to the recommended spot of the moment. The departure is from the jetty of the Sport Fishing Club Mindelo with agreed time day to day, depending on the chosen spot. We’ll fish with lures, teasers and dradge to make the pitc bait. Rods and Shimano reels from custom 30lbs, 50lbs and 80lbs. All equipment, rods, bait, fuel, lunch on board with sandwiches and drinks, are included in the price.
For ethical choice it’s years we carry out the billfish "Tag & Release" in collaboration with "The Billfish Foundation", rewarding the angler with a "tagging report", the certificate attesting to capture.
This certificate, in addition to the pictures, will be remember our true trophy, instead of catching a wild fish, so preserving species so to be free to catch it again and experience new emotions.
In 2006 we started the first attempts with this innovative technique and after exciting and encouraging experiences, we can finally offer customers who want to experience the thrill of the purest deep jigging speed specifically dedicated to Esmoregal, in Creole dialect, amberjack. This fish is present in the Cape Verdean archipelago with its main species, Seriola dumerili, Seriola fasciata and Seriola rivoliana, the true esmorègal, that can attain more than 70/80 kg.
The current record of the center of a S. rivoliana is of 63 kg. We experienced multiple capture over 50 kg, even if the most common fish are around 20 / 30 kg. That kind of weight puts strain on both equipment and experienced fishermen for the great power of the fish. The Fishing Center offers the latest and most modern equipment for jigging, rods of different weights with fixed, rotary and electrical reel, as well as a plentiful of jigs of all brands and sizes.
You can also make attempts targeting big wahoo, yellowfin tuna and dorado. Excellent results are also obtained using the light jigging and Kabura inciku maneuvered near the bottom. With these types of baits can try your hand with mainly species of bottom including the typical and most common Garoupa (bluespotted seabass) the Méro (withe grouper) along with wrasses like Bedja (Blackbar hogfish) and the delicious Charraco (scorpionfish).
All the months of the year are good for fishing amberjacks but I suggest that best months are from July to November for the excellent weather conditions. We can arrange specific packages Jigginn expedition. You can find more detailed programs in the section "Special packages”.
