We had an amazing time searching and sight casting for bluefin tuna with Tom! It was an experience my 14 year old son and I won’t forget.

Tips & Tricks, bait and more

The coastline of Sitges consistes of nice beaches with several piers and impressive cliffs, creating the perfect conditions for non-stop spinfishing and bottom fishing. Spinfishing along the beaches and its piers you can fish for bluefish and seabass using top water lures and soft bait. Bluefish can also be targeted using natural bait trolled along the coast.

The seafloor in front of Sitges basically consists of sand with a few stoney areas. Locals love to fish for the great tasting gilt-head bream or dorada from the beaches or the piers using worm, crab, shrimp or muscle. Great beaches to fish for gilt-head bream in Sitges are Playa de la Fragata, la Playa de San Sebastián or la Playa de Balmins.

In fall and winter, squid are caught in front of the church of Sitges, in 20 meter deep water.

About 8 miles northeast of Sitges, there's a small reef called "La Barra", where predators such as dentex and amberjack can be caught using live squid or cuttle fish.

And only 5 miles off Sitges, the seafloor plunges from 100 meters to over 1000 meters, and it is a major highway for whales, dolphins and pelagic fish species migrating from the Gibraltar Straits into the Mediterranean Sea throughout the year. March and April are the best months to catch 30-40kg bluefin tuna casting poppers, stickbait and jigs towards the impressive frenzies.

In May, these feeding frenzies are more common towards the Gulf of Sant Jordi and the Ebro Delta. In the area of Sitges, tuna fishing is now basically chumming and drifting in the area of the drop-off (the area of "El Forat" is one of the best places for tuna fishing in Sitges). Tuna caught chumming normally weigh between 40kg and 150kg, but there are fish up to 300kg.

Off-shore, there are interesting seamounts (such as "La Pera" and "Les Mamelles") and the Mallorca channel, which are great places to go offshore trolling for tuna and albacore (May - August).
