Madeira's On!

Nice Madeira Blue released on the "Grander"

Madeira РLast week we started hearing about the fish being seen and we knew the year was going to start out good, but not this good. This fishery has one of the largest blue marlin averages in the world, with very few fish under 500 lbs. Well, this BIG FISH fishery is keeping its title for now. Check out  few of the catches thus far.

Xareu – 650 lbs Blue Marlin, 700 lbs Blue Marlin

Our Mary – 550 lbs Blue Marlin, 850 lbs Blue Marlin, 650 lbs Blue Marlin (See Video Link)

Katherine B – 850 lbs Blue Marlin

Audaz – 700 lbs Blue Marlin (Doubleheader)

– Many thanks to Capt. Jonboy Kelmer at the helm of “Grander” ( They have just finished up in the boatyard, so expect to see good numbers from them.
