Top Fishing Charters in Barcelona

The largest metropolis on the Mediterranean sea, Barcelona's fishing prospects are often as grandiose as its monumental churches, as prolific as its soccer. Known for its mild climate and pelagic-riddled summer seasons, the fabled Barcelona-Maresme coastline remains home to some of the finest roster of game fish this side of Europe, with trolling, spinning and jigging being the local fisherfolk's preferred methods of choice when tackling these waterways. Although the continental plateau stretches as far as 12 miles offshore in some places, the coastal shallow waters are ample with reefs and other fish-holding features, attracting both baitfish and predators alike. Bluefish and Leerfish are two of the prominent nearshore targets, while the likes of Atlantic Bonito, Dorado, Mackerel, Snappers and shark dominate the waters 50-80 meters deep. Bottom fishing for Sea Bass and Red Bream top the winter fishing calendar, along with a steady assortment of Red Porgy, White Sea Bream, Green Wrasse and many others for added variety. Still, as any veteran big game angler will tell you, Barcelona is Bluefin Tuna central. Peaking throughout the summer months, these drag-stripping bruisers are usually hunted as far as 25 miles offshore, with many prime specimen commonly breaching the 200lbs mark!
