According to customer reviews, Pevea Big Game Fishing Charters, RC Fishing Trips, and Pequeño Nieto are some of the most popular fishing charters in Italy. Full list of top fishing charters in Italy.

Pevea Big Game Fishing Charters and RC Fishing Trips received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Italy.

The most popular fish species you can target are Amberjack, Dolphin (Mahi Mahi), and Bluefin Tuna. Top fishing techniques include deep sea fishing, bottom fishing, and trolling. Offshore fishing, nearshore fishing, and inshore fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

Surrounded by four seas, and boasting lakes and rivers galore, Italy’s angling scene is one of the best in Europe. From small boats that will take you nearshore, to big offshore sportfishing vessels, there’s a fishing charter in Italy for all kinds of anglers, giving you the chance to land some delicious dinner or battle a monster fish. 
 
Whether in the Adriatic, Tyrrhenian, Ionian, or Ligurian Sea, you’ll target the same fish, by and large. Hit the nearshore reefs or fish around the islands and you’ll come into contact with  Barracuda, Bonito, Bluefish, Jacks, Seabass, Seabream, Grouper, Rays, and even Sharks. While that’s plenty to get your teeth into, the real prizes await offshore, with delicious Swordfish, Spearfish, Mahi Mahi, and Bluefin Tuna on offer. 
 
You’ll also find some Italian fishing guides along the rivers and lakes inland. Europe’s answer to the Great Lakes is geared up for tourism in the north, with Lakes Como, Maggiore, and Garda the pick of the bunch. Hit the Tiber, Sieve, Ticino, Adige, Tagliamento, Brenta, and Sarca Rivers for a spot of fly fishing, and you could catch world-class Trout, monster Catfish, and delicious Carp, Pike, Perch, and Grayling. 
 
Wherever you are in the boot, a guide or charter is not far away. If you’re in the capital, then Ostia is your best bet for fishing, while Naples and further south are also great starting points in the west. Puglia in the south-east is your best bet for the Adriatic, but don’t forget about Venice, Rimini, and other tourist resorts. Meanwhile, Sicily and Sardinia pretty much live on fishing.
 

Rules & Regulations

Saltwater fishing can be done completely free of charge without the need for a license. However, freshwater fishing requires a Type D license for foreigners, or Type B license for locals. You’ll also need a Tax ID to get your license, so you’re better off going with a professional guide who’ll sort it for you.

January

You won’t have the chance to experience much of Italy’s big game fishing in January, but you can bring home a full cooler after a few hours of nearshore trolling and bottom fishing.

February

You can bring home a decent haul in February, when you’re likely to catch Amberjack, Grouper, Bonito, Conger Eel, and more when bottom fishing nearshore or around the islands.

March

The fishing offshore is starting to pick up momentum, as Bluefin Tuna make their way toward the southern Adriatic. Amberjack, Bonito, and False Albacore are at their peak, too so, get ready for a mixed bag.

April

In southern Italy, anglers are hooking into big, bad Bluefin Tuna! You can also try trolling or deep-dropping 10-30 miles offshore for Spearfish to land some truly prized meat.

May

By May, Bluefins fill up the Adriatic, with a trip from Puglia or Venice offering equal rewards. Don't forget about the Tyrrhenian Sea, though, as the annual Bluefin harvest (Mattanza) lights up Sardinia.

June

Bluefins are at their peak in the northern Adriatic. Thresher Sharks, Spearfish, Dentex, and more are on the cards at this time of year. Summer is also a good time for shore angling, so it's all possible!

July

Italy’s deep sea fishing is the best it’s been all year! Haven’t found your sea legs yet? Try drifting and trolling with live baits close to shore for Amberjack, Dentex, Grouper, Bluefish, and Garrick.

August

Fishing offshore will fetch you anything from Bluefin and Albacore Tuna to Mahi Mahi, Spearfish, and Swordfish. Freshwater anglers are hooking into Carp, Catfish, Trout, and more, so try it all!

September

Come early autumn, Bluefin Tuna start leaving the northern Adriatic. Bluefin fishing will be fantastic in southern Italy for several months more, while freshwater fishing in the rivers and lakes is at its peak.

October

Whether you’re one for fly fishing in the lakes and rivers or a hardcore deep sea angler, Italy is sure to deliver in autumn! Many big game fish are at their peak in October, as are Carp, Catfish, and other freshwater fish.

November

Bluefin begin to leave leaving the central Adriatic in late fall as they head back to the Mediterranean. Spearfish and Swordfish will continue biting through the off-season, however, so there's always the chance of a trophy.

December

With the height of Italy’s deep sea fishing behind you, December can be a great time to see what’s biting in the estuaries. You can catch Chub, Garrick, Dentex, Seabass, Bream, and more in just a couple of hours.

Watch the weather, which was unusual for May. The Harbor has a McDonalds in it, not the McDonalds further down the beach, and negotiate a price for the taxi before leaving the hotel. The people were VERY friendly and helpful, since we got a bit lost looking for the harbor, but got there eventually. Lots of sand beaches, and we used the WCs at the free beach. As noted, Capt. Rossi was good at his job and class act.

This was a fabulous trip. For starters, amelio brought us sandwiches that were the best we had in Italy. We learned so much about fishing, and we fish a lot! The boat was well stocked with gear and we caught quite a bit of fish. Carlo was super helpful and we left feeling like we were friends with both of them. We ended with an amazing swim in the clearest and bluest of waters. 5 stars.

We had such a great experience fishing for Tuna with Emiliano. The communication and process to book was so easy, Emiliano was so friendly and very willing to teach us how everything worked including catching bait, how to chum the water, and set up equipment. We feel he did everything in his power to get us our Tuna but the fish had other plans for that day. That is why it’s called fishing and not catching! We would recommend this trip to anyone who loves to fish and be on the water!

Great experience. I took my sons (8 and 13). They were able to help catch the bait fish and the captain was very good with them. The captain and first mate worked very hard to find the fish for us. I highly recommend Pevea big game fishing.

Vincenzo was awesome! He’s the captain, the photographer, the fish cleaner and so much more. The comprehensive price included everything imaginable and he goes the distance to ensure that it is an amazing experience. I can’t imagine anyone being disappointed with his service.

We caught a ton of small fish. Kids caught enough they got tired of fishing, so we went snorkeling. The water was clear and we seen some really cool fish and sea urchins. Captain Peiro spoke great English and was a great guide.

We had a lovely day on board with Capt. Emiliano, his mate, and the puppy Lapo. We went after large bluefin. We experienced catching our own bait, and then trolling for the big ones. Trolling we caught several small blue fins which was fun. They fight really hard! We unfortunately didn’t get lucky while chumming for the big ones but still had a great time. Captain Emiliano had drinks and local snacks on board for us as well. He was very friendly and knowledgeable!

We had an amazing day on the Emiliano’s boat. He know how to make you feel comfortable at the first moment you met him. Always taking good care of his guests. The fishing trip was over our expectation even if the tuna was a bit quiet this day. We had a little aperitif with wine, beer or Proseco under the sunset with focaccia and sardinia. Everything was perfect. Even the Emilano’s dog was so friendly! Thank you. We hope will see you soon.
