Come escape to the Strait of Gibraltar and catch that massive animal you've always wanted to with "El Natilla:" the best fishing charter on the Strait. Come and enjoy a great day of jig fishing, deep sea fishing or any other type of fishing.
El Natilla, Algeciras, Strait of Gibraltar
The Strait of Gibraltar is a mandatory step for migratory marine species such as bluefin tuna. The strong currents that prevail around here sometimes reach up to 5 knots - on the one hand it can be difficult fishing, but on the other, those currents bring lots of food for small fish, which in turn attract our preferred predators.
The depths vary dramatically. The depths, huge boulders, rocky and sandy areas provide shelter to many large predators such as the pink dentex, grouper, red porgy, black spot sea bream, Atlantic wreckfish, and amberjack. The threshold of Camarinal situated next to Banco de Majuán, has a depth of 280 meters, while just outside the Bay of Algeciras there are depths of 1000 meters. Other interesting spots for fishing are Punta Carnero, Guadalmesi, Punta de Oliveros, the ‘bajo de la Aceitera,’ the ‘bajo de Los Cabezos’ in front of Punta Paloma, Bolonia, Perejil Island, etc.
The Strait is a haven for lovers of jig fishing. There are plenty of boulders and stones abundant with large predators. It is best to fish in sea bottoms of 30-50-80 meters; greater depths can also be fished, but the strong currents force us to use heavy jigs of 350 grams and 500 grams.
Spinning is a technique that does really spectacular in this area. We can catch Atlantic bonito, amberjack, and bluefish, large dentex using large poppers and other lures. In the summer months, we consistently fish for large Atlantic bonito 5kg - 7kg by spinning, the strongest month being September.
For anglers who prefer coastal trolling or big game trolling, there are endless possibilities. Although there are fish all year round, the best months to go after giant tuna, swordfish and marlin are the months of June, July, August and September.
With the fishing depth we can catch black sea bream, grey triggerfish, pink dentex, green wrass, black spot sea bream, white sea bream and many other species.
Boat and Captain
There is plenty of fish in the Strait of Gibraltar, but fishing is not always easy. We must be very well informed about the weather: the day may start out calm and sunny, but very quickly it can become very windy as strong as 50 knots, which has caused more than enough distresses. Is necessary to know the tides and currents; in addition, one must always be watching out for the large amount of maritime traffic passing through the strait, and of course, you need to know where the good areas are. For all these reasons, it is very important to have the experience of a good skipper.
And what better than to have Juanma, a skipper who has been fishing his entire life in the Strait. He’s a very good fisherman, but is an even better person. You will be sure to experience a fantastic day of fishing and as well as have as a friend for life.
Onboard there are four full teams for jigging reels from Van Staal, Shimano Stella SW 20000 and Daiwa Opus Bull 6000 or Saltiga, all mounted on Shimano Jigwrex rods.
Coastal Trolling is practiced with 30lb equipment (Okuma, Penn, etc.).
