Big Game Angling with Marbella Fishing
is not for the feint hearted or those looking for a casual sea fishing experience. It’s not only the opportunity to hook into a monster fish that could drain your energy over the course of a 3-4 hour fight, but the fact that you can spend hours and many trips with no action at all in search of something special.
To begin with we have to venture 15 to 30 miles away from the coast and often into the Straits of Gibraltar, this means a full day charter of 7 to 10 hours in duration is required using our boat based in Puerto Banus
Summer months from May to September are the best for targeting Spanish Mackerel (King Mackerel), Sailfish, Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Marlin and Bonito up to 100lbs. The colder months of October to April still provide good fishing for Red Snapper, Sea Bass, Grouper and Breams up to 100lbs.
Our Big Game Fishing experiences utilise the pusher style lures such as Moldcraft and Pakula, along with livebaits Yakkas, Trevally, Pilchards, Pinkies and Gobbers. The main dead baits we use tend to be Mullet or Garfish (Ballyhoo) which are extremely effective on all species.
Due to the duration of our Big Game Fishing trips from Puerto Banus, Marbella we advise a maximum of 6 anglers. We can also offer the Big Game style experience on shorter duration charters especially during the Summer months but chances of catchiing are greatly reduced.
