Manuel started fishing with his grandpa when he was 5 years old. He later started marlin fishing in 1996 in Algarve, Portugal. Manuel has fished in some amazing places around the world including; Madeira, Azores, Spain, France, South Africa, Morocco, Mexico and the USA. 
  
Manuel became a Captain in 2009 with his own boat in Algarve, Portugal. He then later created Blue Captures Fishing Charters in 2016 where he was mainly targeting White Marlin and Blue Marlin. Manuel has won The National Big Game Championships 3 times in the last 5 years. 

Manuel first came to Cape Verde to fish in 2014 where he fished with Captain Zac Conde, he loved is so much he became a CV season regular. In 2016 he worked the CV season as a mate with Capt. Zac on Amelia. In 2019 he was given the opportunity to Captain Blue Hunter for the CV season. That season Manuel released 42 Blues in 38 days. 
  
“Every Blue Marlin is special, and we were lucky enough to have a few on the 750lb mark last season. Cape Verde is by far the best Blue Marlin spot in the world. As well as being a top spot for other types of fishing like jigging and bottom fishing!”
  
“I have a passion for jigging and am one of the few Captains that offer jigging charters in CV. Last Oct and Nov we caught 9 Amberjacks in excess of 50lbs, the biggest being 90lbs!”
