Aquatica Fishing Charters

Aquatica Fishing Charters runs fishing trips out of Malta. If you want to get top predators of the Mediterranean or fish for bottom table fare around the reefs and ledges, this crew of local fishermen has exactly that. All it takes is to come along and the skippers will make sure you have all the gear you need and will take you where the fish are.

Your vessel for the day is a 33’ Targa boat that is powered by a 250 HP Volvo Penta engine. The boat is big enough to let up to eight anglers hop on and sample these fisheries with enough elbow room. The vessel is equipped with GPS, a fishfinder, has a all the safety gear, features a toilet, and carries a selection of rods, reels, and tackle. There is an ice box onboard where you can store the fish.

Trips with Aquatica run year round and will see you fishing near the reefs and far offshore. The distance you travel will depend on the fish you want to catch, the weather, and the type of trip. If you’re after Dorado and Albacore that you’ll need to travel about 10-20 miles to get them, but some days will bring the fish much closer to the shore. Or, you can even head to the other side of the island for maximum results.

You will be trolling and bottom fishing. Dead bait is readily available before the trip, but sometimes you might catch live fresh bait during the trip to have the best chances of landing a trophy size predator. Skippers Chris and Daryl will take a good care of you and your party. They know these waters extremely well and will make sure you have superb fishing.

As for the trip, wear non-slip rubber sole shoes. As weather can change, it’s best to bring a jacket and a long pair of trousers, and dress in layers. Make sure to bring sunglasses, a hat, and sunscreen. Pack a camera as you’ll want to get a good angle of your catch. All fuel, permit, skipper fees, fishing tackle, bait, drinks are included in the trip prices.

Get your fishing buddies and come along for top-class fishing in these waters!

    This 4 hour 'catching guaranteed' excursion targets medium to smaller sized bottom dwelling species such as Seabream and smaller Snappers. These can be great fun on light tackle equipment and will surely keep you busy with bites all through the trip.I t's a great trip for anglers with less experience too. It is a shared trip and there will be other anglers onboard.

Skipper Chris of Aquatica Fishing Charters has spent his entire life at sea, initially starting his professional and sporting career as a freediver and spearfisherman. This provided him with an unmatched knowledge of the underwater environment and fish behaviour that can only be observed while freediving. This experience and first hand knowledge had proved crucial and extremely successful when he later started running fishing trips. Through the knowledge acquired he could better identify the good fishing grounds and decode what was going on beneath the waves. Nowadays Chris is a well renowned skipper who can get you on the fish even when conditions are not easy. He provides not only a great sport fishing experience but is a limitless well of knowledge for those who want to learn more about fishing and the underwater world. Skipper Daryl is an all-round fisherman who has spent years on the sea, learning about numerous fishing techniques that can yield the best catch.
