Tono, Puerto Calero, Canaries - Lanzarote
Not far away from the coast, you will quickly find huge depths. The shelf break is only a mile from the Puerto Calero. Here, the continental slope runs down to 1000 meters and more. On the west side of the Island it lowers to even 3700 meters! There are plenty of off shore seamounts that rise thousands of meters form the ocean floor and stop short of the surface.
On the north side of the Island is located the Chinijo archipelago, composed of the small barren islands of Alegranza, La Graciosa, Montaña Clara, Roque del Este and Roque del Oeste.
The privileged geographic location of this Island, its subtropical climate and the oceanic currents provide Lanzarote with an abundant marine wildlife. There is a huge number of both sedentary and migratory species. Whether you practice spinning, jigging, coastal trolling, bottom fishing, light tackle fishing in Lanzarote, shark fishing or big-game fishing, the possibilities Lanzarote offers the fishermen are immense... and the opportunity of capturing the fish of your life as well.
Jigging in Lanzarote
The rocky bottoms that feature sandy patches, slopes, boulders, wrecks are an oasis for jigging anglers. You can fish vertically during the whole season and catch Atlantic Bonito, grouper, wahoo, barracudas, Moroccan dentex, dentex, etc.
We strongly recommend booking a good Fishing Charter in Lanzarote and an experienced fishing guide who knows the area, the currents, the tides, etc. You have to know exactly where and when to drop your jig. If not, the possibilities of catching something decrease significantly.
Light Tackle Fishing - Trolling in Lanzarote
Fishing with light tackle (equipments of 20-30 lbs) and small lures can produce quite some fish. You can have unforgettable sessions fishing species such as bonito, red porgi, wahoo, Atlantic bonito, barracuda, Moroccan dentex, amberjack, bluefish, tuna (big eye tuna and yellow-fin tuna), guilthead etc.
Big Game Fishing in Lanzarote
Lanzarote is an excellent place for big-game fishing. You can reach high seas within minutes as the continental shelf ends only a few miles from the coast. The subtropical climate, the oceanic currents and the huge supply of pelagic baitfish such as mackerel, tuna and bonito make the blue marlin feel at home in these waters between June and mid-November. Apart from Blue Marlin, the catches also include white marlin, dolphin fish, yellow fin tuna, big eye tuna and skipjack.
For those who like shark fishing, there’s an area off Fuerteventura with marine mounts where it’s only 27 m deep (around these mounts its 1000m deep). The only good period to fish here – due to the weather conditions – is end-September and October. Normally we fish for hammer shark with life bait, using a wahoo as a teaser. You’ll catch hammer shark up to 600lbs just behind the boat. These fishing trips use to be very spectacular.

My only complaint was that it was not really suitable for younger kids. My 8 and 10 year old sons were not given an opportunity to pull in the bigger fish - too small. Thanks for reaching out and asking. Regards,
