If you’re quite the fisherman, you’ll feel right at home in the Canary Islands! Anglers have the opportunity to fish from boats, beaches, lakes and rivers here, all of which are home to a vast variety of different fish species. These islands are also popular for international fishing competitions, with pro fishermen arriving from all over the world to compete.
Any angling enthusiasts will jump at the chance to catch rare game fish such as the Atlantic blue marlin, a pinnacle of offshore fishing. This challenging species is usually found in the deep water off the coasts of La Gomera, Gran Canaria and Tenerife. They’re often spotted from May to September, so be sure to plan your break accordingly!
Holidaymakers can book exciting fishing excursions on a number of the islands. Try out freshwater fishing in Gran Canaria and catch some carp, or take a tour out to sea in Tenerife to practise trolling and bottom fishing. Suited to all levels of experience, there’s no shortage of opportunities here!
