Centered in the North Atlantic….is a grouping of 9 islands called the Azores. All the nine islands of the Azores Archipelago are volcanic origin. I personally think this is like the perfect place on the earth! hahah Beautiful! nice weather all year, not a lot of tourists. Life is great here! People are amazing! Wow! This first island is called – SÃO MIGUEL, We hired a guide and went fishing. Cody caught a White Marlin, the first day. These are difficult to catch as they are wise to the bait on the fishing poles. The second day he caught barracuda.
