  • What is the best time of the year for offshore sea fishing?

    Offshore sea fishing in Liguria, which aims to catch big predators, can be practiced both by trolling and with natural bait (chumming). The best season for trolling, especially if you are looking for spearfish, is the beginning of summer, while tuna fishing can be practiced with good results from late spring until late summer.

  • What are the ideal weather conditions?

    There is no perfect weather condition for sea fishing. Each type of technique has its own preferable moment and weather condition. We can certainly note that weather conditions are fundamental for all sea fishing activities, both sporting and professional. Certain weather and sea conditions, for example, can significantly influence the success of a sea fishing trip. Furthermore, in addition to the weather forecast, the activity of the fish is strongly influenced by the alternation of the night-day phases and by the movements of the tides.

  • What are the best times of day?

    Some fishing techniques are best applied at the first light of dawn, while for others the best hours are the hottest ones. In general, fish are very active before sunrise and just after sunset, when food is plentiful. In the middle of the day, when the sun is at its peak, many fish retreat to cooler, deeper water.
