On our latest trip a 7h shared charter, we had three fisherman and two observers. One of them Mr Luc Goos, joined by his wife. The day was sunny and the sea flat and highlighted with him tagging and releasing a 350 lbs Blue Marlin.
2015 is here and soon the Big Game Season starts in it´s full glory!
We had amazing fishing experiences and great strikes in 2014. Many return customers, who have become friends that love fishing as much as we do and we have also met new anglers, young and old, trying their luck at that amazing strike abourd OUR MARY.
we have added some of the pictures of tags and catches in 2014 in our gallery. Hopefuly in 2015 we´ll have just as much tightlines or even more.

Angler Jez Smith went out for the 3rd day ( on the 17th Oct) and boy was it a charm. He striked a fish on a 30 lbs line and landed this beauty a 70lbs wahoo.
Our Mary is Breaking Records! On the 10th October experienced angler Barry Johnson joined us once again. This time out for Wahoo. During his trip he managed to pull in an amazing 42 kg wahoo, a beauty of a fish. Not only did he Oficially beat the national wahoo catch record of 26 kg as did he break the european record of 36kg. Currently Our Mary and Barry Johnson are the national and European record holders at 42 kg. Local Media covered the event. We could not be any prouder of our team and the loyalty of our clients.
On the 21st September we had an amaziing double strike with a 26 kg and 30 kg Wahoo catch!
Wahoo are swimming Madeira waters and surely are going to give anglers good moments to remember. Angler Beto Serrão, went out and caught these two beautiful wahoo, weighing in at 16kg and 17kg. Tightlines and let them keep coming!
Yesterday we striked a double hook up just out of the Funchal bay. A fight with two fish at a time. After a while fighting the fish, we ended up landing a white marlin and losing the other.
Last Saturday Mr Burns joined us on a trip, he proudly reeled in 2 Tunas weighing in 120lbs.
We sometimes throw in a bit of botton fishing, either per clients request or when Captain José knows its a good day for it. On sunday thats what he done. Mr Mickelins caught a 150 lbs Stingray
Our Mary had a two part day, yesterday: a half day trip in the morning and a 7h in the afternoon. In the morning trip we had a strike, but ended not landing a white marlin. In the afternoon, we managed to have another two strikes. After a 30 min fight, the line got tangled with a bouy, eventually snapping the line. Bouys are normally good for atracting fish, but also might make harder, managing the lines.
