ZAK CONDE

Captain

Hi, I’m Ezequiel Conde, known to most as Zak Conde. I was born in The Azores in 1972. I started fishing in 1991 on board the Cecilia. During my 26 years on various big game scenes, I’ve been fishing in Madeira, Canaries, Ascension, Ghana, Australia, Croatia, Senegal and Cape Verde. The most blue marlin caught by a charter boat and five times top release and tagging for the atlantic ocean.
