Fishing in Canary Islands

The Canary Islands are not only one of Spain’s most popular tourist destinations. They’realso one home to some of the best fishing grounds in Europe. The subtropical climate makes them an excellent vacation spot, as well as a great habitat for fish. You’ll find plenty to catch all year round on your Canary Islands fishing charter.

You can start off the year in January with fish like Mackerel and Barracuda. In March you’ll encounter Albacore, Bigeye and Yellowfin Tuna. These make way for White Marlin in May. June marks the start of big game season, as Blue Marlin, Mahi Mahi and Wahoo arrive. And September is a good month to fish for various Seabreams, before Mackerel and Barracuda rule the waters again.

For an entirely different adventure, try fishing for Carp and Black Bass on Gran Canaria. There are several dams, lakes, and rivers that have excellent freshwater fishing if you’re not the seafaring kind, or if you’re simply looking for some variety.

In Tenerife, you’ll find the largest selection of fishing charters and therefore the largest variety of fishing trips. Choose between shorter adventures fishing along the coast, or go for a long trip to troll for Marlin and Tuna. The smaller islands of La Gomera, La Palma, and El Hierro are all about big game – they have great access to offshore fishing grounds. And if you’re looking for Tuna, definitely visit Lanzarote.
 

Rules & Regulations

Fishing in the Canary Islands requires you to have a fishing license. The type of license you need depends on where you want to fish. Licenses can be bought from the local authorities and are valid for 3 years. Teenagers need parental authorization. If you are fishing with a charter, your license is usually included in the price.

Canary Islands Fishing Seasons

January
Thanks to the warm weather, you can escape the January blues with a trip to the Canaries. Get out on the water and target delicious inshore species or Bigeye and Albacore Tuna offshore.
 
February
“Carnaval” lights up the Canaries, with Tenerife standing out as the epicenter of this traditional celebration. Get ready to be dazzled by the show across the island!
 
March
The fishing season is warming up with the arrival of more Tuna and an abundance of delicious nearshore fish, giving you the extra chance to fill the boat. 
 
April
Between escaping the winter blues and the peak season, April is one of the best months to visit the Canaries. Take advantage of cheaper hotel rates, while the fishing is as good as ever!
 
May
Big game fishing season is almost here, as Bluefins and Yellowfins start to make their way through the Canaries and White Marlin put on a show for you to behold.
 
June
There’s no doubt that the season has arrived as Blue Marlin and Mahi Mahi join the party, giving you the chance to target some of the most sought-after fish in the ocean.
 
July
As peak holiday season hits, the fishing is in full swing, too. Escape the crowded beaches with a trip to sea that promises plenty of delicious nearshore and monster offshore fish to target.
 
August
There’s no sign of the red hot fishing letting up as big game fish make themselves at home in the deep waters, giving you the chance to land a trophy-sized Marlin, Tuna, and many more. 
 
September
While Marlin and Mahi Mahi make their way out of the Canaries, the nearshore fishing is heating up once again. With some Tuna and Wahoo still offshore, you won’t regret a trip in September.
 
October
Monster Bluefin Tuna and Amberjack make their way back onto the scene when October hits. Get out on the water and see how the fishing simply doesn’t let up.
 
November
If anything, the fishing is getting better as the year draws to a close. Bigeyes join the Bluefins to make the Canaries a Tuna fishing paradise, so come and fill the boat with something tasty. 
 
December
What better way to end the year than with a holiday? Look back at the year from the beach or, better still, from a boat. Target anything from Mackerel to Tuna and end the year in style!

The trip was nice, time and price are fair. To use livebaits at the reef will be a better chance to get bigger fish. We catched only small fish. Food and drinks enough for the time. The captain and the skipper did a good job. Gracias

My daughter and I had a fantastic time. We caught 4 tuna and a barracuda, the most we’ve ever caught. We aren’t very experienced in saltwater fishing and the crew were really nice and helpful in teaching us. It was definitely the highlight of our trip to Tenerife.
