This amazing destination located on the lower River Ebro is a world away from the normal bank fishing. Here we utilise modern boats to target these freshwater beasts and once you have caught your first Catfish from a boat, you will not go back. So far our customers have landed fish to 198LB with the average fish around 100lb. Yes, these are not as big as the Cats that get caught on the upper stretches but playing a fish of this size from a boat is so very different than standing on the bank.
If you are serious about your Catfishing and are ready for an action-packed fishing holiday, then look no further. We are pleased to bring you this great destination, which is located on the lower stretches of the Ebro River. You may be asking yourself why the lower stretches, there is one simple answer – it is far less pressure. This trip is fully guided at all times by a guide who will be driving your boat.
You will be fishing the lower reaches of the Ebro Delta close to the town of L’ampolla, the areas you will be fishing are renowned for there large Catfish and the best bit about these areas is that despite the great number of fish present they are far less pressured than areas that are normally fished by those from the banks.
This destination isn’t your normal overcrowded Ebro style of fishing, all the fishing is done by boat, which means you can reach those less pressured areas. You will get the feeling you are the only one fishing, which couldn’t be further away from your run of the mill Ebro trips, but still, be surrounded by stunning backdrops and awesome wildlife.
You will be fishing the Ebro River aboard our fully customised boats that have been modified for locating, hooking and landing very large Wels Catfish. These boats are very stable 17 foot California Skiffs fitted with 50hp Honda 4stroke outboard motors with electric start and tilt features. These engines provide first-rate performance and reliability and allow you great mobility during the course of the day. A typical day on the river will be around 8 hours.
The fishing at this destination is done by fishing with baits ledgered on or near the bottom these baits come in a wide variety but one of the more commonly used baits is chicken, the catfish will move around and hone in on your bait hopefully wolfing it down and then giving you a fight you will not forget. These fish can reach sizes well in excess of 150lb in weight so the correct tackle is needed and this is supplied free of charge once you arrive in Spain, this means that you will have no worries about any tackle you have being under-gunned for the fish you will be catching.
This trip is fully guided by an English speaking guide who will help you every step of the way to catch that fish you have always wanted to land. These guides will offer any advice you may need and will be driving the boat for you, taking you to the marks and areas they think will produce the fish on the day you are fishing.
