The captain packs in lots of trolling if nothing hits you’ll do some baited bottom fishing. Pretty much always catch something.

My father used to run fishing charters back in the UK but in 1983 got fed up with the bad weather so decided to move his family to Tenerife to try his luck in warmer waters. When we arrived here he was the first boat to offer fishing charters in Tenerife and being a young 7 year old fishing enthusiast I spent every day that I could out on the boat, at one time the whole family had to live on board as things never went to plan and I used to have to see my home go fishing every week day whilst I went to school. Finally in 1990 we figured out where the marlin were hiding in Tenerife and had the best year ever. A few years later when I left school I got sent back to the UK to do a 5 year apprenticeship on the River Thames, in 1998 I earned my Freedom of the Company of Watermen & Lightermen of the River Thames and came back to Tenerife full time, by now my father had passed the company on but it wasnt long before I got my own boat.
