The Crew

My crew in Canavieiras are all local guys trained by myself on international fishing methods and are the best in Brazil.

They love their fishing and their enthusiasm and expertise will just add to your Canavieiras experience.

The Fishing

We fish IGFA regulations and practice tag and release unless the fish could be a possible World Record.

Because of the spectacular geography of Royal Charlotte Bank we have marlin fishing all year round, weather permitting. The best of it however is from October to March.

The Boat

Fishing aboard the Camargue, a 39.5 ft Carbras Mar with 2 x 325 hp Mercedes BM motors, you will cruise at a comfortable 20 knots to the fishing grounds.

Camargue is equipped with a new Sounder and GPS. She has all safety equipment including life raft and EPIRB (Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon).

The Equipment

We have all new rods and Shimano reels from 130 to 30 lb outfits, spinning and electric reels.

The 50 and 30 lb outfits are set up for stand up fighting or change the butt and go to the chair if the fight goes on to long. Mold Craft makes up most of my lures here and the equipment is imported from the US and nothing but the finest gear.

Virgin Fishing Grounds
Where the Big Blues Roam

How would you like to be the only game fishing boat on the edge? Where do you find this unique situation?

The Royal Charlotte Bank has proven year after year to be a world class Blue Marlin fishery.

17 Miles from the tranquil town of Canavieiras in the state of Bahia, Brazil, the bank runs 55 miles to the East with a southerly current hitting the northern edge, providing the nutrient rich waters to feed the bait fish. This in turn attracts the pelagic species: large wahoo, dorado, amberjack, yellowfin tuna, white marlin and sailfish.

Fishing here aboard the Camargue, would fulfill the fishing fantasies of most anglers. With 80% of the blue marlin between 200 and 600 lbs and the rest over 600 lb the fish here are larger than most other fishing grounds. Moderate to calm seas make a great combination for some memorable fishing.
