The waters surrounding the Cape Verde Islands boast some of the best game fishing in the world. There is a rich variety of species including blue and white marlin, albacore, darade coryphene (dorado), shark, wahoo, and bonito fish, but marlin is the most desirable catch. The channel between Sao Vicente and Santo Antao is one of the best spots for catching blue marlin, and the trick is to use trolling lures or live bait. The presence of certain species is seasonal, but there are fish to catch year-round.
