Bookings are open for 2019

The season is over since late September and it is time to prepare the boat for next year. This season had a kind of two sides for us. The tuna season was not good for any sportfishing boat, but was one of the best seasons of the last decade for the commercial fleet. The reason for that it is the new technique that commercials were using that keep the tuna under the boat (feeding them with live bait) and do not let them free migrate closer to the shore for us.

Yet for marlin, the season was much better than the previous years. We had some crazy weeks catching lots of fish but also a few weeks of less action. It looks like the marlins were migrating in waves.

Our season for Big Game fishing in 2019 will start in early May through the end of June for tunas (bigeye and yellowfin) to then marlins (blues and white marlins and spearfish) until mid-October. We hope we are following the fishing trends and cycles that have been observed in the Azores in the last years, meaning that next year will be better than this one! We can’t wait to be out there again.

Many thanks to all the anglers fishing with us this year. We hope to see you again soon!
We are preparing a new video of the season and also gathering a new photo gallery, so stay tuned.

For bookings and informations, do not hesitate to send us an email at jlbfurtado@gmail.com or just leave a message in our contact formWe still have some prime dates open for both tuna and marlin, so don’t let the opportunity escape. See you onboard!
