May 2013 - Boa Vista Cape Verde

Lure fishing in the Atlantic Ocean

I never did ocean fishing but while preparing for a week beach holidays in Cape Verde , I decided to take some tackle in my luggage. Sitting one week at a swimming pool is not my way of passing my time so I give it a try to fish from the shores of the Lacacao beach.
Our hotel, Riu Touareg, is at the south of the Boa Vista island and situated at a nice sabdy beach. At 1.5km towards the East, there are some cliffs which offer a different biotope to catch different species than at the beach.
From the beach I started catching different fishes with small lures but quickly I learned from the locals that fishing with pieces of fish or crab works much better than my plastic lures.
