Went fishing on Thursday, May 4, 2017

Very good trip. Captain Adrian and mate were very friendly and informative. Very good English and very sociable. Loved using the small rods to catch live bait. After trolling for a couple of hours we hooked a tuna. Unfortunately after an hour of reeling the fish got off the hook. All good experience. Saw dolphins and a turtle.

Had a lovely day out very friendly and helpful crew. My 8 year old son and mum “s first fishing trip and they both enjoyed catching bait fish. Moved on to catch blue fin tuna which we found and had a run but didn’t land it. But had an excellent trip and would definitely go back to the Rodfather.

I really enjoyed our trip.. even though we hadn’t caught what we set out to catch, the rod father crew kept it fun and interesting! We were constantly on the hunt! Working with the seagulls and other charters trying to locate the shoals but unfortunately not much was caught from any charter in that day.. that’s the way it is sometimes. Adrian intercepted turtles, dolphins and pilot whales whilst we were trolling around for tuna which made the trip pretty special.. Adrian and his crew members genuinely care about their customers and try their hardest to make it a great experience!

I booked this trip a number of weeks before my holiday having looked at a number of operators in Puerto Colon harbour. Unfortunately, after talking to a number of people in the port prior to the trip, it became obvious that there were very few tuna about. Although this is a well run boat, despite the best efforts of the crew, this proved to be the case. Next time I will only book when I’m in Tenerife and the boats out of Puerto Colon are catching some fish.

As an aside, we did see some dolphins and a couple of pods of pilot whales, so the trip wasn’t a total bust!

We had a really great time on the rod father today! Highly recommend it! Very proper professional and fun crew and boat! It was the first time my partner had ever been fishing and she also loved it! First catching bait fish then trawling for the big ones (they were not hungry today) then a bit of bottom fishing a few different species were caught then a bit of trawling for smaller things where we caught a few barracudas!
We even got to see dolphins and whales in the wild!! All in all a fantastic day and we defiantly will be back SOON!!

Even though we didn’t catch our target fish we still caught despite the season and thoroughly enjoyed the day out with The Rod Father. Would definitely recommend to anyone and will be back on our next holiday :-)

We had a great day with a top local professional crew.we caught skip jack tuna and saw a marlin being caught.
