Malta Fishing

Largely untapped as a sportfishing hotspot, Malta offers a refreshingly different perspective to what most have come to expect from a classic big game fishery. You won't find a 500lbs Marlin or a trophy sized Bonefish in these waters, and you'd be hard-pressed to spot any Roosterfish fans among the locals. Instead, this lush Mediterranean archipelago greets its guests with prolific Albacore and Dorado seasons, with vertical jigging for Amberjack quickly becoming the favorite pastime of many. Forget bottom fishing for Snapper and Grouper - instead, take your family on a journey of discovery of a colorful Sea Bream variety, cruising the Maltese deep in impressive numbers. And for those of you that can't help your addiction to monster pelagics, there's still plenty of Swordifsh and Tuna offshore to keep you busy year-round!
