Big game Fishing in Mojacar and garrucha trips are by far the most fun. Ever wanted to catch a big fish? remember jaws “we need a bigger boat” well we do a 12m game fishing boat that leaves with the intention to catch a wappa, with big game fishing Mojacar that’s the plan we can travel out 60 miles and out there you can catch tuna marlin and marlin dorado, in certain time of the year we can even catch a shark. we run 8 150lbs line sea fishing rods and spend the day following the fish finder along the popular fishing route of Mojacar and garrucha in fact where ever the fish are up to eight fisherman each trip.
To begin with we have to venture 15 to 30 miles away from the coast and often into the tuna line heading toward Mallorca passing mar menor this means a full day charter of 7 to 10 hours in duration.
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 live baits 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 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.
Well start the day at 7am leaving the port in guaracha and heading out of the harbour with a cold beer and well start almost straight away drop the rods and start trolling as we go, who knows you may catch the winner of the day on the first line.
By the end of the day you will either have the best story to tell you mate or for smaller groups have some new friends to share the rest of you holiday with.
Sunshine charters have everything to make your holiday in Mojacar the memorable experience you want it to be.
Trolling, not to be confused with trawling, is a method of fishing that works well here our Fishing’s boats are equipped with all the necessary equipment, fishing tackle and experience to explore this method successfully. The stereo type Big Game Fishing boat if often seen with large poles or rods gracing the rear, these are outriggers which help separate the lines whilst the boat cruises, the more lines that are out and the baits movement through the water gives the impression of a small school of fish, irresistible to any predatory species.
Down-riggers can add a new dimension to trolling by getting the bait or lure down to those fish that inhabit the deep. The principle is to use a weight with a line release clip which is lowered by wire cable. The line is attached to the clip with about 10 to 20 metres of line set to whatever depth you are trolling. The weight is then dropped accurately using the in built depth counter to a depth where you think the fish will be. Using the fish finder in conjunction with the down-rigger pre-determined depths can be fished and adjusted accordingly. When you have a bite the line releases from the clip and you can play the fish directly without obstruction.
