Great Start in Brazil



Brazil – We have been getting great reports from Sao Paulo to Canavieiras, with not only good size Blue Marlin, but a number of Grand Slams as well. Up north in Canavieiras, Capt. Shawn Wallace on Carmague has been busy releasing a 750 & 850 lbs. Blue Marlin already this season as well as Two Grand Slams. Capt. Antonio Amaral on the Wahoo has been busy getting a Blue Marlin on almost every trip in the early part of the season (and as always, excellent photography).

Down further south in Vitoria, we saw Andrezza catch a very nice 680 lbs. Blue Marlin and Perfeita caught a 679 lbs. Blue Marlin out of Rio de Janeiro. Even further south in Sao Vicente, Capt. Bruno Larica on Casca Grossa has been slamming out, releasing back to back Grand Slams including 4 Blue Marlin, 3 White Marlin & 4 Sailfish over the last 2-Days.

December and January tend to be some of  the best months, so we should expect to see more action out of Brazil.
