Fishing

Gran Canaria big game boats hold several billfish, tuna and shark records and big fish are caught and released every year. Most dock in Puerto Rico's marinas but there are boats at Pasito Blanco and Mogan. 

Blue and white marlin, sharks, wahoo, baracuda, amberjacks and various tuna species are the main catches depending on the season. 

Some big game boats go after bottom fish if the pelagics aren't around. Bream, grouper, amberjacks, rays, sharks and the odd pufferfish are common catches.

Shore fishing in Gran Canaria is still challenging unless you go after bass and sierra off the north coast. The south is largely sand and was heavily overfished. Baracuda, jacks, parrotfish, bream and combers are the main fish and there is good sport in targetting the big grey mullet. You can't fish inside any of the harbours.

Gran Canaria's reservoirs hold some of Europe's largest mirror and common carp along with black bass, and the odd escaped tropical catfish. For carp fishing in Gran Canaria we recommend the man who brought the sport to the island.

    Popcorn beach in north Fuerteventura has become an Instagram thing in the last few months but Gran Canaria has an equivalent spot on its north coast.
