Fishing in the Canaries & in Shetland

Where can you plan a trip and guarantee to get out in the sunshine and on flat sea's? It is also the place where you can catch the biggest Bluefin Tuna on the planet. During March and April for the last three seasons we have had fish to 900 lbs. The hook up rate is very high.  We also have Yellowfin to 250 lbs plus Big eye Tuna to 271 lbs. Marlin fishing in July to October when you can expect to catch Blue Marlin to 900 lbs.



Shetland Isles

During May,June, and a few selected dates in July and September i will be offering charter angling from Cullivoe in Shetland. Here you will find some of the best fishing in Europe. You will catch the biggest Cod, Ling, Coalfish and Turbot in the UK. In each season since 2010 when i established the first charter boat ,OBERON in Cullivoe we have landed Cod to over 40 lbs and on each trip over 6 years never failed to land Cod to plus 20lbs on every trip. 200 kg of Cod is normal for a 6 hour session. We build in time for filleting and putting your fish on ice.


From May 2018 i will be back in Shetland and available for charter for groups of up to 8 max or for individuals. We are licensed for 12 however for you comfort and enjoyment we keep the numbers down. This also means we can assist you with landing and gaffing you big fish.

My 2018 dates are going fast so please contact me for further information on travel & accommodation.

 In 2016 we started to anchor over slack water in deep holes and found cod to 46 lbs and ling to 48 lbs. less than 500 metres from shore!

If you want to catch a 30 lbs cod and ling on the wrecks to 40 lbs plus then you must try Shetland.
