I'm going to Funchal for a week in October and looking at pictures of the place it appears to look promising for a bit of rock/jetty fishing.

 

Does anyone have any tips on tackle/bait and also what species to expect?

 

Thanks in advance

As Madeira is part of Portugal you will find  that there is a license requirement to fish off the shoreline and they do police it quite strictly confiscation of tackle and a stiff fine is not a good plan on holiday so check before you fish

minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd
by the clean end"
