Malta Fishing Charters / Boat Trips

Malta Fishing Charters offers a rich variety of fishing trips around the azure waters that surround the island. Join Captain David Micallef as you explore some of the most prolific waters in the area. He’s been fishing since he was a kid, so you can be sure you’re in great hands. Anglers of all expertise can hop aboard and enjoy fishing these waters.

The vessel for the day is a 26’ Century 2600 walkaround boat. Powered by two 225 HP Yamaha engines, it can reach some serious speed, so it’ll take you where you need to be in the blink of an eye. The boat accommodates up to 7 anglers, and it’s equipped with Garmin and Raymarine GPS and fishfinder. There’s a bed, toilet, kitchen, icebox, outriggers, and multimedia system.

Malta offers superb fishing opportunities. Depending on the season, you can catch a whole range of fish. Troll for big game, and catch the likes of Bluefin Tuna, Albacore Tuna, Little Tunny, and Spearfish.

Light trolling can yield Barracuda, Bullet Tuna Dolphin Fish, Blue Fish, Saddled Sea Bream, Bonito, Mackerel, and Blue Runner. If you want to combine live bait trolling and jigs, aim for Pink Dentex, Dentex, Greater AmberJack, Grouper, Red Scorpionfish, and Pandora.

You can also choose to go bottom fishing at great depths, some 250 to 250 metres. Using electric reels, you’ll target Deep Sea Bream, Hake, Scabbard, Rock Fish, or Stone Bass Grouper. If you’d rather stay closer to the coast and bottom fish, prepare to catch Spotted Weever, Comber, Cleaver Wrasse, and White Bream.

The crew will provide the top-shelf equipment, bait, food, soft drinks, beers. The captain can prepare a BBQ on the boat with the fish you catch or meat if you are not a fish lover. Kids of all ages are welcome. You’ll also find spearfishing and snorkeling equipment onboard.

Visit the prolific waters off the coast of Malta with Malta Fishing Charters and have a fishing experience you won’t forget!

Captain Dave grew up fishing on a small island. When he was only two, his older brother took him fishing. Since then, he has mastered his angling skills. Already at 13, he got his very own small boat, and used it for fishing. At the age of 19, he started running fishing charters. Now, on his big boat, he takes people out on the waters around Malta and delivers well-equipped, fun water outings.
