These waters are newer for anglers but they’ve become pretty popular pretty quickly, probably because there are just loads of fish, I’ve been on a boat that’s caught 13 big billfish in a single day – it was Blue Marlin, White Marlin and Sailfish. From what I heard there doesn’t seem to be the potential to catch the monsters there is somewhere, the stories told here are of 700 pounders rather than 1000 pounders, but in reality a 300 pound marlin looks pretty massive when you hang it up and is more than photo worthy.

The town is nice too and locals say there’s marlins in the water all year round so there’s a lot going for Canavieiras as a fishing destination and I’m planning to go back.
