2019 Season is now over for Blue Makaira, but what a season it was.

Blue Makaira for the third season running recorded the highest catch and release of Blue Marlin of all of the islands charter boats. For 2019, we released 34 Blue Marlin of over 500 lbs with 15 of these over 700lbs and 7 being over 800lbs, with an average weight recorded of about 620lbs!

Thrown into the pot this year were Big Eye Tuna up to 220lbs, Wahoo to 60lbs and Spearfish to about 40lbs. What great fishing.

2020 Season. Blue Makaira is currently undergoing her winter maintenance and will be back in the water in early May ready for our clients to start fishing from mid-May. If you have not booked then please email info@atlanticbluemarlin.com to secure your dates

Tackle

Tackle used on Blue Makaira’ is of the highest quality and the attention to setup is unstinting.

On the rear deck we have a Pompanette fighting chair that we can equip with a rocket launcher. We use Lee’s outriggers (35ft) which present the lures very effectively.

Blue Makaira and our crew are proud to represent Normark (ES) as a Rapala ProStaff member. As a Rapala Prostaff member our tackle is of the highest quality and the latest generation of that available through the Normark , Rapala, Shimano group.

Our Rod and Reel outfits come from the Shimano Tiagra range . We have six 130lb bent butt outfits, as well as two 50lb and two 30lb straight butt outfits. Perfect matches for the Big Game fishing that Madeira has to offer.

We are always happy to rig the equipment for ‘light line’ records at your request.

Line is always Suffix Key Lime IGFA, with backing being Red Spot, all tackle, rigging and hooks are the best on the market and supplied by Normark (ES) , Normark (PT) , Leadertec, Gamefisher (ES) and Melton International Tackle.

For lures, we have a great selection but always try and use the ones with highest success rate!
