Shore fishing ?

Asked by: 6th June 2012

We normally like to fish off the rocks in Lanzarote but I didnt realise that you actually need a licence there which is 15 euros. Where abouts do you get this from and is it something that be applied for online or do you have to go in person.


Also we normally go to Costa Teguise but we are going to Matagorda this year. Can anyone recommend the best place to fish there ?

    I have found fishing off the rocks near the San Antonio Hotel ok theres a small jetty there which is a locals favorite spot, just in case your not aware if you catch any colourful fish beware as some have a sting in there dorsal fin which can need hospital treatment if it stings you where as all the silver coloured ones are safe to handle, i have never been asked for a licence in 20 years ? hope this helps

    Hello Kath,You can go fishing in Lanzarote with no problems You will see a lot of locals sea fishing and how many of them have a licence ? not many I bet.
    Take no notice of the remark made by Michael Watson. he always leaves sarcastic remarks and stirs up trouble.

    “Stirs up trouble”—get a sense of humour–get a life and to coin an angling term TAKE YOUR HOOK !!!!!

    Michael Watson read this and digest the contents!! You tend to leave a sarcastic remark to every questioned asked. If you want to revel in publicity then stand in a bucket of sand and sing a desert song Try to refrain from making yourself a pest on this site.
    I am sure many people will agree

    i tend to agree with jonny boy regarding “michael watson”… although it is good to have a sense of humour, i have noticed that every answer he leaves regarding peoples questions are very non helpfull at all, its a forum where people want serious answers to questions in able to decide if they want to visit this place.

    The old jetty near Los Fariones used to be a great spot for mullet and small snapper but it seems to be off limits now.

    Thanks. I think we will have too just walk until we find some rocks to fish from.. Thanks everyone except Michael Watson for all your help!!!
