cascais fishing portugalMy fishing fellows, I’m still focused on European fishing and after discussing fishing in Spain, we’re moving further west, we’re talking about angling in Portugal. This beautiful and diverse country has been recognized as one of the twenty most visited destination around the globe. The influences of certain gulfs, the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean attract various marine life to the waters surrounding Portugal. Well, this goes for big game fish, as well!

Azores, the island that holds 22 world records in different marine species, is very popular among sport fishermen. What is especially attractive about Azores is its Blue Marlin population. However, there are other big game species, such as Bigeye Tuna, Bluefin Tuna, Skipjack Tuna, Amberjack, Spearfish, Swordfish, Dorado, Wahoo and Mako Shark. Several very good charter companies operate in Azores, so you won’t have any difficulty to hire the one most suitable to your angling needs.

Madeira, another Portuguese island on the Atlantic Ocean, has gained popularity over the last decade. In fact, it is now considered to be one of the best deep sea fishing destinations of the world. Bluefin Tuna, Blue Marlin, Bigeye Tuna and Swordfish are just some of the species that you can fish here. Make sure to get necessary information on fishing seasons of certain species and you’ll have wonderful angling experience in Madeira.

Cascais is a town on the South-western edge of Portugal, nearby Lisbon (or it’s even to be the suburban part of Lisbon). Legendary traveler Vasco Da Gama travelled to exactly this port after his journeys. Not only is Cascais home to some of the most beautiful beaches of Portugal, but it’s also abundant in sea life. Yearlong fishing season makes it a perfect fishing destination for big game fishing. Grouper, Blue Marlin and Bigeye Tuna are just some of the species you can fish in Cascais.

Mainland Portugal, as well as surrounding islands, presents a lovely traveling destination with lots to see, experience and do. Well, this makes it perfect vacation spot, since every member of your family will love and enjoy it. So, even if your closest ones don’t like angling, they will be entertained while you enjoy the best outdoor activity ever!
