I seem to recall that the Islands had some connection to Italy and Italians have been fishing there for some years before the direct flights started.
Might be worth a look in the Italian Angling press?

Seems a common name for charter boats, better than one of the Mersey angling boats 'Size Matters'.
That all depends on how big your rod is

Just got back from Sal and you can forget about the big game fishing at Santa Maria town at the moment. Two days into the holiday i managed to get out for a half day shared boat (4) with Cabo Verde big game fishing ,the only boat advertised on Sal i could find/see.The quality of gear was poor,they had only one heavy rod trolling a kona head, no teasers no downrigger.The other rods were geared mostly for small tuna,the tourists easy catch fish. Muppets and rusty rapalas produced one very tiny 2lb tuna over 5 afternoon hours.The crew were native, the owner who does not come aboard was Italian.A friend was already booked for the next morning and their 5 hours produced 2 slightly bigger Tuna (6 lb).The boat was 500 euros for 5 hours so you should expect a better service. Thompsons fly to Sal and boa vista so it might be worth looking at Boa Vista or another Island for a better quality service

I visited the dock/fish market quite a few times and did not see any marlin and only 1 sailfish,and everything was being killed.At least with the shared boat i did not waste too much money.

My usual boat in the Canaries is having a bad summer for marlin too apparently.
