The history of Big Game Fishing in Madeira

In 1976 the local government invited José Pinto Braz to Madeira to initiate Big Game Fishing in the island's waters. He brought with him a vast amount of experience from Sesimbra in Portugal where he was responsible for establishing this area as one of the top game fishing centres of the world, most famously for Swordfish records. This was the beginning of Turipesca.

His passion for sport fishing led him to many countries in Europe during the fifties and sixties, where, by giving presentations, he became largely responsible for Sesimbra becoming an important tourist destination.

To this day he is homaged by an annual tournament in Sesimbra known as the José Pinto Braz Swordfish Tournament. This incredible event attracts interest from all over the world as it is a true battle between 'man' and 'fish' due to the fact that only rowing boats are permitted to be used.

Madeira, thanks to José Pinto Braz has also now become known worldwide as one of the hottest big game fishing areas with Atlantic Blue Marlin of 1,000 lbs not being uncommon.

PORTUGUÊS

O mar da exótica Ilha da Madeira é considerado um dos melhores,senão o melhor destino para a pesca desportiva,por possuir águas com temperaturas sub-tropicais todo o ano, variando entre 18 e 20º,beneficiando das favoráveis influencias do"Golf stream",com frequencia entre Abril e Outubro. A maioria dos peixes capturados são pescados a cerca de 2-4 milhas da costa, devido `as profundidades existentes que variam entre 100 e 500 metros,chegando a atingir 1500 a 10 milhas da costa.

Uma grande variedade de peixe desperta a determinação dos aficcionados da pesca desportiva, que entre outras espécies, podem encontrar a Barracuda, o Bonito,Dourado, Atum,Wahoo e o famoso Espadim Azul, mais conhecido por Blue Marlin. Um grande número de recordes mundiais e europeus foram conseguidos nas aguas da Madeira como o Spearfish o Blue Marlin, o Bonito e Atum.

Por tudo isto, foi JOSÉ PINTO BRAZ, famoso ex-proprietário do Hotel Espadarte, pioneiro da pesca do peixe com o mesmo nome, em Sesimbra,que, seduzido pelas potencialidades dos mares da Madeira em 1975 e a convite da Direcção Regional de Turismo fundou a Turipesca, promoveu internacionalmente a pesca e naturalmente a Ilha, foram tempos dificeis, com muito trabalho e investimento próprio, que apesar de muito pouco reconhecido tornaram a Madeira um dos melhores centros de pesca do mundo.

Actualmente, pescadores de todo o mundo procuram as nossa águas, milionários de várias nacionalidades deslocam as suas embarcações com uma única finalidade:lutar com o rei dos peixes, o Blue marlin, que após o combate é normalmente marcado e libertado a fim de preservar a espécie e poder noutra altura de novo proporcionar outro combate.
