Not a rough water warrior? No problem! The water is glass calm and tranquil, not to mention that fishing starts just a few minutes outside the Madeiran harbors and marinas. Fishing usually starts at about 9 or 10 am and is extremely relaxing until the sudden scream of a Shimano Tiagra 130 reel having 500 yards of line taken off in a matter of a minute by an angry Blue Marlin.
