Fishing in Mallorca


The Balearic archipelago is one of the best places in Spain for practicing sport fishing. The mild climate and the diversity of the seabed combined with the unique geographical location of the island, protected from the strong currents of the Strait of Gibraltar, but at the same time are located close enough to him to preserve the richness of nutrients of the waters of the Atlantic ocean. In the South-East of the island of Majorca, the depth of the seabed up to 1,000 metres only six miles from the shore that allows deep sea fishing is only a 25 minute drive from the coast.

Types of fishing:
Trolling - fishing from a moving boat that allows the angler to cover vast Maritime space. Use 6 to 8 rods and artificial lures, Rapala, Halco. The velocity of the boat when fishing for bluefin tuna or albacore should be 6-7 knots. Caught at depths from 500 meters to 2500metrov. The tuna season begins in late may and lasts through October. Also from September to November trolling caught Ponce, at a lower speed 4-5 knots. This is one of the most interesting types of fishing in Mallorca. If you're lucky, you may catch a Spearman or a sailboat. Fishing zone: South of Cala Figuera, the North-West of the Cape Formentor, to the South-East of Cala Rajada, South of Portocolom, in the South part of the island of Cabrera.
Bottom trolling is practiced all year round no more than 5 miles from shore at a depth of 30-60 meters. For this type of fishing uses a special device (profundisadores) with large enough payloads up to 5 kilograms. As bait use as lures and live bait. The best bait is considered to be fresh-caught squid. As in normal trolling, the boat is constantly moving, but with much lower speed - up to 2 nodes. Deep trolling catch lubinu, Malibu the pelamida, and other types of inhabitants of sredizemnomorja.
Bottom fishing is usually on the floating anchor drifting over depths ranging from 15 to 500m, depending on area of fishing, gear and of the expected trophy. Can be combined with a vertical jig. This type of fishing can be used all year round, but requires good weather conditions.

The most impressive and unforgettable view fishing in Mallorca - the hunt for giant blue tuna, which can reach impressive sizes up to 400 kg. the Migration of tuna in the Mediterranean sea starts in late spring and in late June, reaches the coast of Mallorca. The fish catch is limited, so the Board can be raised only one dead fish in battle that can last hours. For catching giant tuna, in addition to very strong utilise and coils use a mixer and ejector of sardines, she needs to stock up for the future (30-50 kg per day). Anchored at a depth of 150-200 meters, every minute in the water is discharged two or three sardines, which go downstream and attract the predator.
