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.
