Am heading out to Lanzarote in Sept and am interested in doing some fishing, especially Shark! Has anyone done it? Am after costs etc.
going again this august and will deffo take the telescopic rod again.
also, it has come to my attention that to fish in lanzarote one needs a licence, can you buy them in the local fishing shops, or post office, do i need a passport or more, thanks for all the geat info, simon.
how is the pressure chart looking?
It's looking high and settled for the rest of this week. Sea's should be calm and the skies blue.

I wasn't aware you needed any license for fishing in Lanzarote. They certainly don't have an eqivelent version of our national rod license. I've fished in Costa Teguise many times along with local anglers and there has never been any mention of any permits to fish.
you need another licence to boat fish, its a little dearer, the money goes towards conservation ect, you are given a chart with all the legal sizes etc, of course we all know that its laid back out there, but i have a spanish n.i. number and would like to keep lawfull, i wanted to know where i might obtain the licence in p.d.c.
thanks for the chart info, how is next week looking? much the same i hope., regards, simon.
how is next week looking? much the same i hope.
Not much change from what I've seen but I never trust charts for >3 days, they tend to change!
Thanks for the info about the license. Is there a website or anything with more info? I work in fisheries so if I got caught without a license my head with be for the guillotine when I got home! Do you know if this is something that has been recently introduced because there is nothing on record in our office?
Apparently, as was said, a fishing licence is required to fish from the shore here in Lanzarote. This entails going to the Cabildo in Arrecife, then the normal form filling, going to the bank to pay the dues, then back to the Cabildo etc etc etc!!!! Therefore, the official "unofficial" advice is that unless you are a resident of Lanzarote, not to bother!!! The authorities are quite aware that holidaymakers will not be aware of the requirement, and therefore tend to turn a blind eye. Obviously regardless of whether you have or do not have a licence it is illegal to fish anywhere people are swimming. The rocks across the road at the bottom of C/Anzuelo are apparently a popular place to fish
know this has been asked before, but coulnd not find an answer.
