September and October are the best months for light tackle trolling in the Mediterranean Sea in Spain. Species like dolphinfish (Mahi-Mahi), bonito, horse mackerel, false albacore, melva and blue fin tuna concentrate close to the shore to chase baitfish like sardine and anchovies.
This video shows how active the predators are this time of the year. Capt. Julien drops his jig and only a few seconds later he's reeling in a small blue fin.
In the Barcelona area the fish are also very active and the best fishing technique at the moment is trolling with small lures and streamers. Especially bonitos and false albacore are around.
In Mallorca, the anglers are having great fun catching dolphinfish. This season is being excellent with an average of 15 fish per angler per fishing trip. Apart from dolphinfish, we are also catching large amounts of small blue fin tuna (2 lb - 5 lb).
Our friends of Andalucía concentrate - as always - on bottom fishing. They catch the usual smaller fish like sea bream, snapper, scorpion fish etc; but almost every day they catch dentex, pink dentex, tuna, amberjack or grouper on a life bait. The last weekend of October, the International Bottom Fishing Championship will be held in Marbella. We're confident that Capt. Oscar and co will be in the top 3 position.
The Gibraltar Straits are the perfect place for top water spinning. Capt. Juanma concentrates on casting for bonito and smaller tuna. He's catching regularly bonitos (sarda sarda) between 11 lb and 16 lb! These great fighters are a wonderful fish to catch on light tackle!
And last but not least: The Canary Islands. Capt. Paul and his team from Tono, participated in the The Puerto Calero Fishing Championship in Lanzarote. In the end Tono was in first place for the Blue Marlin category and second overall on points. The overall points winner was Hard Hatt, with one Blue Marlin and two White.
During the Gran Tarajal Championship in Fuerteventura, the biggest fish was a spectacular Blue Marlin of 906 lb. We remind you that the marlin and the wahoos are around until the end of October and start of November. Also, we're having great session with vertical jigging: grouper, dentex, pink dentex, amberjack and much more.
So, in a nut shell, enjoy these excellent fishing conditions before the winter starts!
