“Not for fishermen”

Lanzarote Fishing Club
Reviewed 2 October 2016

We booked our day out through our holiday rep at about 65 euros, ouch! We were collected from our hotel as part of the deal. The boat was loaded with plenty of big sport fishing gear and looked great, we spent 2 hours travelling whilst towing huge lures supposedly to attract big fish, we then anchored up and fished for about 50 mins with everyday small gear 3 small fish were caught, whilst fishing we were served lunch of pasta, which was quite tasty. Up anchor and trail the big lures back to port. As a fishing trip it is a waste of money, but we were fortunate on our day we saw a whale and lots of dolphin. During the trip we were provided with some cans of beer which was welcome. When we got back we were not offered a return to our hotel.
Our skipper for the day was a really great guy, but seemed more interested in sightseeing.
As a sightseer it was great, as a fisherman it was a waste of time and money.

Just to say we have just returned from Lanzarote and I can totally confirm the 100% accuracy of William R from Manchester;s report (see the reviews before this one). We are a family of 5 so some 350 euro later (5 fishing but only charged 50 euro for youngest) after the trip being highly recommended to us as we had wanted to sea fish in Tenerife last year and got ripped off and so explained to the excursion lady (who was from Wales) that we wanted to make sure we went out with someone who was genuine and interested in us catching fish, she put us onto Tino and Mizu fishing. Don't part with your money unless you are happy to be disappointed and part with that amount of money for a boat trip. We weren't even offered water in the baking sun.

5 hrs on the boat held a rod for 5 minutes and had to head back because (apparently) too much current so no fish so all in all terrible you pay to be on board a boat while the crew trawl for prize catch which you have no part in STAY CLEAR !!!!!!
