Hi all, im in mallorca for a couple of weeks, early april, and was wondering where the best places are , what tackle to use and what baits are the most effective at this time of year. Im nearer the south side of the island. So any info or past experiences are greatly appreciated.

Yeah I've seen plenty around the island before, in ports, and they used to sometimes follow my bait in.

Find the deep water and you'll find the cuda in the day. Shallower water at night for them.

Surface lures and shallow cranks a lot like uk bass fishing lures.

Dont rule out the amberjacks and leerfish either!

I only fished around sa coma, namely "punta n'amer" a big headland that juts out and is very deep, loads of AJ and speaking to a local in my 'ok' spanish, he told me its good for "palomita" which is either derbio or leerfish as they both have the same spanish name in the islands.

Palomita is the derbio, the leerfish is palometon.
I know but that only applies to the mainland. its a nightmare asking the local because of most of those in the balearics only know of a "palomida" (leerfish) and a "palomida blanca" (derbio)

Hi. Im heading out for a week in August and was interested in the discussion as Im looking to take a rod with me but wasnt sure what species are about that time of year from the shore. Im staying in Alcudia which is in the NE part of the island so does anyone have any advice for me? I was also looking at some of the charter boats so if anyone has any experience of these they could share I would be very grateful. Cheers.
