Amaral and his charter boat, Wahoo, see more than their fair share of blues behind the boat in his home waters off Canavieiras, Brazil, which is often passed over as a top blue marlin location. The peak of the blue marlin season on the Royal Charlotte Bank begins in mid-September and runs through late April or early May, but he says you can catch a blue marlin year-round. Recalling some of his great seasons, he says: "The best year I had here was the 2011-2012 season. We released nearly 100 blues, tagging 72 of them, and we also released two granders." The blue marlin there average between 400 and 500 pounds, and the white marlin regularly exceed 120 pounds. Add a healthy mix of other pelagics and Amaral might be fishing one of the most overlooked fisheries in the entire world.
