OBERON in the Canaries

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..

We have been catching Wahoo, Albacore, Barracuda, Grouper, Amberjack and Dorado.


Blue Marlin

We are now catching big blue Marlin and nearly won the annual competition on 9/10 June with a fish around 600 lbs. We lost a similar sized fish minutes earlier when it bent open a 10/0 hook on the smallest lure in the spread.


Oberon of Yell is now in San Sebastian marina, La Gomera, she is a purpose built sports fishing boat, a Rodman 12.50.

On board we use only the best tackle and have a range of Shimano and Penn International tackle, from 50 to 130 lbs.

If you want to sample some of the best game fishing in the world then please give me a call on +44 7793120958

This is top of the range fishing at its best. Most of my customers who fished with me in Shetland that have visited La Gomera book a further trip before they leave the island.

Big Game fishing is available just 4 hours from the UK. When the spring weather is playing up back in the UK, why don't you jump on a cheap flight and within a few hours you can be with us, in La Gomera. After arriving in Tenerife south its a short ride to Los Christianos where you get the ferry to La Gomera.

La Gomera is a great place to stay and it has a great range of bars and restaurants. Accommodation in La Gomera is very reasonable and we can arrange that for you.

In March and April we get a great run of Bluefin Tuna and then the big Marlin show up in late June. Yes Big Blue Marlin to 1000 lbs are caught every season. The best fish in 2016 was estimated to be 1160 lbs..our last two Marlin have both been over 600 lbs and considered small!!

When i was in Shetland anglers would often say"It doesn't get any better than this" well, all i would say to that is get down here and try this guys!!!!!
