Tips & Tricks, bait and more

Rota lies at the north of the enormous bay of Cadiz. In the centre of the bay is Puerto de Santa Maria and the estuary of the river Guadalete. The bay has shallow silty seafloor with hardly any obstacles. There is bluefish, seabass and gilt-head bream in the bay. Further off-shore, rocky areas areas provice nice bottom fishing with banded seabream, scorpion fish, blackspot seabream, snapper, jack...

Outside the bay, the seafloor descends slowly, you have to sail 20 miles to find deeper waters for biggame fishing.

These waters are extremely rich with tremendous amounts of baitfish that attract pelagic fish such including tuna, marlin, wahoo and dorado.

FISHING SEASON IN Rota

Spring

Fishing in Rota from April and May is an ideal time to do trolling and jigging for bluefin tuna, albacore and little tunny. Spring is also a good time to fish with live bait to target dentex, grouper or meagre. 

Summer fishing in Rota

Summer is ideal for fishing bluefin tuna or white marlin trolling off Rota. Closer to shore, live bait fishing produces dentex, pink dentex, grouper or amberjack. 

Autumn

Fishing in Rota in autumn is great to catch bonito, skipjack tuna, dolphin fish (mahi-mahi), frigate tuna, little tunny, smaller bluefin tuna and sometimes even wahoo. Light tackle trolling with smallers lures & feathers is the best and easiest way to catch these species.

Winter

Bottom fishing for blackspot seabream, scorpion fish, snapper or redbanded seabream for example and live bait fishing for meagre, amberjack, sama, grouper.
