Fishing in La Gomera

Wednesday, 11 July 2012 by Jonboy Kelmer
We've been in La Gomera for a week now getting the boat dialed in and fishing a handful of days. The fishing conditions here mirror Madeira in many ways. Where we are fishing is nearly slick calm and within a mile or so of land, which is nice. This place is known for having pretty good numbers of blue marlin with sizes ranging from small all the way to large fish at any given time. The first day we were able to go fishing we snuck out there around 11 in the morning and got lucky to get a big crash bite on the right short rigger where our large green-headed Polu Kai Instigator was holding down shop. After an initial run and some jumps the fish settled down and we were able to get her up to the boat in about 20 minutes. The blue was over 400 lbs by a bit and we were thankful to have her. After setting back out we raised and hooked a white marlin on a small jet out the back and finished up the day with no other bites.
