Sea fishing

This years fishing have been interesting and varied, red and golden snappers have been around all year, these we target whilst drifting for sharks. Sharks have been around most of the year and bigger than last year, but not as many, 5 or 6 on a good day, some very big Makos taken.

Highlight of the season for me was the arrival of big groups of giant Bluefin Tuna in June and July some over 1,000lbs my mate hooked one at 12am and lost it at 8.30pm estimated at 900lbs clearly seen at the surface, but the leader was cut off on the trim tab.

The Marlin came early in mid July of Tavira and stayed till 1st week in September when we lost them due to cold north winds.

Good numbers of White Marlin taken with multiple hook ups and a few big Blue Marlin taken.

Bottom fishing has been good fun with lots of different fish taken, we are out most weekends doing this and if you book early can often fit you in with locals fishing with us at a good price.



Freshwater fishing

We have had a very busy season with lots of clients coming to fish with me. Some have been over two times for a week each time. Early booking is vital as we have had to turn many down January and Feb is booked solid for 2018. Carp and Barbel have been our main targets, but a few clients have enjoyed fishing for American Black Bass, for this we fish from my boat on our big private water.



River fishing

After many years of exploring I can now offer these trips and have two places I like. one on the Guadiana river, the other on my secret river and we have good B and B close to the river only, 5 minutes away from this secluded river-please note you cannot target just Barbel as there are Carp (big ones) mixed in with them.,

Big Carp

My mates have had them to near 50lb this season, but i have not had time to fish for them.Please note that camping and night fishing is allowed on the smaller private waters and it will be allowed on designated sections of a few big waters, but we are awaiting details of just where, this is a new rule just come in, Rules for the closed season seem a bit confused with some police saying there is no closed season and others with different ideas, so when i have the new rules I will post them.
