Maio Fishing Club & Diving Club
Sport Fishing in Cape Verde
(appears in the official guide of Cape Verde 2009) For lovers of sport fishing, on the island of Maio, it is a particularly attractive destination for both quality and quantity of fish that inhabit its waters and also for the ease in which visits can reach the best fishing areas.
Surf casting is practiced in front of the house or along the many beaches found mostly in the south-west islands'; the rock fishing on the long and low basalt cliffs that characterise the desolate north, about twenty miles from Villa do Maio. Based on the beach in the late morning or afternoon, using light-weight equipment you will easily catch mormore, bream and bonitos. Night fishing is dedicated to shark fishing with live bait, as the legendary trancione of sardines or tuna would be in a few minutes devoured by a myriad of bream and mormore lecce star.
"Maio Fishing Club" organises holiday packages and fishing trips such as shark fishing from the beach. For those who wish I will be happy to provide further information.
