FAQ

What type of fishing do you do?
We do all types of fishing depending on the conditions at the time. On all trips, full day or half day we do about half the time Trolling (Big Game) and half the time Drift bottom fishing or fishing at anchor, and chumming the bottom, which is very productive, and on the hook we bait up with a mixture of dead and live baits. If however one type of fishing style is proving a lot more productive at the time we will obviously concentrate on that one,

Is it better to fish in the morning or afternoon, low tide, high tide, slack water etc.?
We can fish any time of day here, and we do not have much change in tide heights in this part of the world. Also the water is very deep all around the coastline so there is no great tidal currents over shallow ground to ruin the fishing. There is one species of tuna called the 'Albacore' which do not like the midday/high Sun, but the rest of the species we target are not affected. We check all the time www.tides4fishing.com

How many passengers do you take out?
We have a licence for 9 passengers, but we can only fish a maximum of 6. An average number of anglers on board at any one time is 4-5 , thats if we are full. All passengers who are fishing get two rods each, one for the trolling and one for the bottom fishing for the whole duration of the trip.

How much time is actually spent fishing on the trip? Is it a long journey to the fishing grounds?
We don't waste any time getting to the fishing grounds beacause as we leave the harbour we immediately set out the trolling lures as the water is very deep close to the coastline. Tenerife is a volcanic island deep in the Atlanctic ocean and we can and have caught very big Game fish in less than a mile from the shore, and when we are bottom fishing we have a lot of choices along the whole of the coast in average depths of between 30 and 100 mts and that is no further than 1/2 a kilometer from coast. Also we have all the tackle and baits set up along the boat so when we stop the trolling we start the bottom fishing straight away
