Tips & Tricks, bait and more

Productive techniques during your fishing trip in Lisbon are bottom fishing, vertical jigging or chumming. Bottom fishing is mostly done with cut bait such as squid, sardines, shrimp or worms. With this technique species like scorpion fish, sea bream, jack, skate and other reef fish can be targeted.

Jigging is great to fish for dentex, pink dentex, sea bass, grouper, john dory and amberjack. Jigs or inchiku ranging from 30 grams to 150 grams will do the job.

Shark are caught chumming. Offshore a trail of cut fish  is used to attrackt Mako Shark & Blue Shark.

The fishing in Lisbon is great all year round, if the weather allows to go out on the sea. Obviously in Spring, Summer & Autumn the Ocean is calmer than in the Winter. But also in Winter you can enjoy a great fishing trip in Lisbon.

TOURISM & OTHER ACTIVITIES

Wander downhill through Alfama's steep, narrow, cobblestoned streets. Visit the Mosteiro dos Jerónimos and Torre de Belém. Experience the historic city centre and the unique Lisbon neighbourhoods using tramway network.

Visit villiages such as Cascais, Sintra, Fátima, Nazaré and Óbidos.

Go surfing or windsurfing in Praia do Guincho, a stunning beach set within the dramatic scenery. And don't miss Cabo da Roca, the westernmost point of continental Europe.
