Welcome to the island that’s often referred to as a “continent in miniature,” owing to the sheer variety of its locales. From sprawling sandy beaches to breathtaking hiking destinations, you’ll begin to wonder how so much biodiversity can be packed onto a single island. Fishing in Gran Canaria is a more focused affair, meaning that the local anglers know exactly what they want and how they can get it.

Known For

When it comes to fishing for big game, Gran Canaria is one of the best places in the world to do it. Puerto Rico de Gran Canaria has more than 50 deep sea world records under its belt, drawing in anglers from all over to test their lines against the local big fish. The downside of this big game fishing craze is that it keeps other kinds of fishing under the radar. For example, the mountain lakes dotted all over the south side of the island have some fantastic fishing in store.

Deep Sea Fishing

If you’re the least bit interested in billfishing, you’ll want to check out what offshore fishing in Gran Canaria is like. The continental shelf lies just a few miles off the coast, which means you can reach the fishing grounds within mere minutes of casting off. The main attraction in these waters is the Blue Marlin, but there’s also plenty of White Marlin, Mahi Mahi, and Sharks to go around. Summer is the ideal time to be fishing for these species, but also to enjoy the golden beaches.

Those more interested in fishing for Tuna will also have plenty to do in Gran Canaria. With species like Bluefin, Skipjack, Yellowfin, Albacore, and Bigeye Tuna present at varying times of the year, there’s always something to be found in the deep blue.

Reef Fishing

The abundance of coral reefs around the Canary Islands makes for extremely productive reef fishing time and time again. The most popular catches for reef fishing anglers are Amberjack and Red Snapper, available in large numbers from winter until mid-spring.

Lake Fishing

Often sidelined in favor of the better-known saltwater fishing, the Gran Canaria lakes remain a hidden gem of the local fishing scene. A real shame too, because Carp fishing here is simply outstanding. There’s no lack of skilled guides who exclusively take people fishing for Carp in places like Lake Chira.

Gran Canaria Fishing Tips

  • Most deep sea fishing charters will have special equipment for reef fishing that includes things like metal jigs for Amberjack.
     
  • The bulk of local charter companies can be found on the southern part of the island, namely in places like Puerto de Mogan and Puerto Rico.

Need to Know

People in the Canary Islands speak Spanish, but professional charter operators will have a bilingual crew because the islands are popular with European anglers.

Regulations

Fishing from marinas or harbors is strictly forbidden in the Canary Islands, but feel free to fish from jetties and piers. Anglers going on their own will need to buy a fishing permit, whereas charter captains will have that covered for their guests.

Budget

The usual asking price for a fishing trip in Gran Canaria is around US$100 per hour. This can vary depending on the type of trip as bottom fishing trips are less expensive than offshore trolling ones.

Getting There

The main way to reach Gran Canaria is by plane from Europe or Northern Africa to Gran Canaria International Airport. There’s a bus line that runs directly from the airport to the city center. Rental cars are another option to make navigating the island easy. Both will do the job when it comes to getting you near the water, and that’s where the real fun begins!

January

Fishing the reefs is a great way to start off the year with a bang. Whether you’re looking for Sharks or delicious Red Snapper, it’s good fishing all around.

February

The reef bite is going strong, and various Tuna will be making an appearance soon. Plenty of Amberjack and Barracuda to find in the deeper waters.

March

Tuna season officially begins in Gran Canaria, which makes March a perfect time to come down and test your skill against some delicious fish.

April

Expect most of the local angling scene to be busy going after Tuna, but you can also check out awesome Carp fishing in a number of local lakes.

May

This part of the year is when billfishing starts getting really good. Blue and White Marlin, along with Spearfish, tend to be the main targets for the day.

June

June is pretty much the best time of year for fishing from Gran Canaria. The waters are teeming with Mahi Mahi, Marlin, Tuna, and many other species.

July

It’s tournament season in the Canary Islands, with the Puerto Rico International Big Game Tournament open for any angler looking to sign up. Give it a go if you’re a competitive spirit.

August

Summer might be winding down, but excellent fishing opportunities are far from gone in August. The bite is still hot, especially if you’re after billfish.

September

September is your last chance to get hooked up on a variety of offshore fish species. Bluefin and Bigeye Tuna fishing is viable for the first half of the month.

October

October is a transition period, so if you’re lucky you can have a very diverse fishing experience. From Red Snapper in the reefs and Billfish further out, to Carp in the lakes, take your pick.

November

The Marlin are pretty much gone for the rest of the year but don’t despair! The local reefs are teeming with Red Snapper, and you can go after Sharks to shake things up a bit.

December

New Year’s Eve in Gran Canaria is a sight to behold. But before you get wrapped up in the festivities, you might want to try your hand at fishing for the likes of Amberjack or Skipjack Tuna.

From a flawless on time pick up by Pedro. To nearly nonstop catches of bait fish, rays, sharks, barracudas. Coordinated by first mate Pepe. The boat was clean, safe, well appointed. The conversations were good and clearly Pedro and Pepe know their stuff. We really enjoyed the trip and would highly recommend it to anyone else. From beginner to experts.

Una jornada inolvidable. Tanto Pedro como Iván conocen el mar y la zona para encontrar la pesca. Disfrutamos viendo delfines, atunes y hasta el tiburón martillo... Hasta que por fin pescamos un merlín azul de unos 200kg. Para repetir sin duda. Muy agradecido por vuestra implicación y exquisito trato... Mi hija pequeña está deseando volver! Un fuerte abrazo.

Although we didn't catch it was an excellent experience and Pedro and Pepe tried their best to get a take right to the final minutes. I have no doubt in the knowledge and skill. I would not hesitate to book again the next time I visit Gran Canaria. Best, Tom Brown.

I've just got back from a day trip with Pedro and crew, what can I say really... I caught a 650lb blue marlin, somebody else on the boat had another blue marlin of smaller size I think about 450lb both hooked and played at the same time (all fun and games). It still hasn't sunk in. Drinks and food provided along with the taxi fares for collection and drop off. Awesome boat and crew. Thank you, would definately use fish on for any future trips in gran canaria for sure. 🐟🎣

a very solid team of fishermen. I’m very glad I chose this charter and I most certainly will choose this one when I’m back! We started the morning catching bait, after which we began the search for monster-sized tunas. Overall a very enjoyable day. The charter is suitable if you’re an amateur or someone who’s been fishing for years.

Great day. Fantastic captain. We caught both big fishes like Barracudas and sting rays and small ones like red snapper. As a private party of five, we got so much value for our money. Would definitely do it again.
