We’ll reach the second day the tour North West Bank, a seamount that from 2000 meters reach almost the surface at 43 m. Unique and extremely rich of fish, is 20 nautical miles from the North West tip of Santo Antao, the island adjacent to Sao Vicente.
It’s anyway difficult to reach the Bank in one day from Sao Vincente - Mindelo, the starting point of our fishing trips, for this reason we have organized three days of intensive fishing, expandable to your liking even to 4 days, where real monsters are waiting you, and not only amberjack!!!
To clarify, in the winter the Blue marlin are not as numerous as in the months from March to July, but for the special marine conditions and peculiarities of the North West Bank, we can find throughout the year this wonderful fish. The fish we mainly catch with the various techniques we use are wahoo, tuna and amberjack.
