About The Captain
Calheta MA, Portugal • Member since January 2014
I started off life as a farmer in the UK in South East Kent, started fishing in the local rivers for eels and pike at the age of 5, then moved on to beach casting for mackerel and then on to a boat cod fishing and for bass in the English channel. i love being on the water and the freedom it gives you. Later i became a 1st mate and commercial skipper on big yachts and motor boats, and tall ships, catching some huge tuna while trolling from lines attached to the capstan! Any excuse to go fishing. In 2005 i was offered a job skippering a big game boat on Madeira Island so i jumped at the chance, now we offer big game for a record sized fish, or you can jig or bottom fish for smaller species. Many fisherman are satisfied with smaller fish, and we like to put everything back into the sea to help increase the population.
