The marlin fishing in Cape Verde is considered to be the best in the world for Atlantic blue marlin. The season runs from April through to October, with high season being April to June with a good run of fish. Larger Atlantic blues run July to September. Yellowfin tuna can also be found, up to 300lb, with the usual wahoo and dorado also in abundance.
Speed jigging is also popular, with catches of large amberjacks, snapper, grouper and trevally. Sao Vicente is close to 2 other islands, Santo Antao and Sao Nicolau.
Travelling to Sao Vicente from the UK, I would recommend Tap Air Portugal flying from Gatwick or Heathrow to Lisbon, then a direct flight to Sao Pedro airport in Sao Vicente. For clients outside of the UK, Lisbon is the hub for flights to Cape Verde.
For accommodation, I would recommend the Don Paco Hotel which overlooks Mindelo harbour with a 10 minute walk to the boat. Please contact me for discounted rates for fishing clients.
