Predator Fishing in Extremadura Spain
  
Predator Fishing is a huge sport in Spain, especially Extremadura. There are no less than 8 of our local lakes, over 1600 km of bank side, that hold a large head of Predatory fish including the Comizo Barbel.

La Serena, Zujar, Orellana, Cijara and Garcia Sola are the main lakes we concentrate on however there are several more that are also teaming with Predators.

Fishing for Predators here has got to be the most exciting fishing about. All methods produce fish, from Vertical jigging to surface popping and vary throughout the seasons. We also fish certain methods to target specific species, however you don't know what the next take could result in, a Comizo Barbel, Carp, Pike amongst others, we have even had Tench take our lures!!!

Extremadura Predator Fishing gives you the opportunity to fish these prolific venues from Boat or Float Tube, otherwise known as a Belly Boat. Throughout the duration of your visit you will be taken to different areas of several lakes depending on target species, weather conditions, water levels etc

Boat fishing is available in two options; Guided Boat Fishing  (40hp 17ft Sundance Skiff and 50hp Kimple Bass Hunter 450) or drive yourself at your own leisure with our Self Drive Boat Fishing package with a 3.8m 15hp Cabri.

We provide a varied selection of quality Shimano and Savage spinning or casting rods, reels also are available if required, again Shimano Caius and Okuma spinning reels.

The Predators

BARBEL There are 5 strains of Barbel here, including the legendary Comizo Barbel that grow to over 20kg, all of which are Predators, fantastic fishing from the Float tube..

BLACK BASS fishing is huge in America and other countries where they inhabit; No Wonder, it's exciting and full of action. Whilst fishing for them, tight up to snags, sunken trees, bushes and the like, the anticipation of a take as soon as your bait hits the water is exciting enough, but the fight they give is something else. They will jump, somersault, dive under the boat and at times even tail walk... its great sport on light tackle and what's more, they go to double figures here !!!!!!

PIKE have been caught to a staggering 30kg in the local area. Some lakes are stuffed with them, like the Orellana, with lots of sport fish. Two guests have taken over 100 Pike in 3 days from Float Tube and we have landed pike to over 35lb.

CHANNEL CATS go to well over 15kg and give a good account for themselves. Several of our local lakes contain these scavengers and our guests have landed Cats to over 12kg.

CARP, yes Carp, again a predator fish and these go to over 80lb here and have been regularly caught by Predator anglers. One guest landed 2 carp on a cold day in January on lure from a float tube and guide Craig has landed a common around 35lb.


The Lakes

Spoilt for choice is the only way to describe it here, these huge picturesque lakes, all different in their own way, have a huge head of fish to specimen size.
To give you an idea of the immense size of these lakes, lake Windermere is 3640-acre 14.73 km² and Grafham Water 1551-acre 6.28 km²

LA SERENA - the largest lake in the area at a staggering 140 km2 - 34468 acres.
Main target species - Barbel and Specimen Pike
Fantastic Barbel fishing on lures with fish to around 6lb, they even take surface baits. Lots of hits and great fun on light tackle, but be warned the Barbel go big in here. The up and coming Pike water, Pike have started to show more and more over the last 7 years or so, not the easiest of waters however it produces many 20lb plus Pike, we have had upper 30s and they go a lot bigger.
Other species
Carp, catfish, black bass.

ORELLANA - 12016 acre 48.63 km2
Main target species - Black Bass, Pike and Comizo Barbel
Orellana is stuffed with Pike and Black Bass, if they are on the feed (or nest) you won’t stop.
The pike, like all lakes here, grow to specimen size, however its rammed with jacks and plenty of fish to double figures to keep you busy.
Black Bass go into double figures in Orellana, and theres a large head of smaller fish, great fun especially on the surface.
The big Comizo Barbel, nothing more to say except a fish of a life time. It’s not easy to catch one of these legendary fish, but with the right tactics and effort, its possible. We have had Comizo to 37lb on lure, and they go to well over 40lb.
Other species
Carp, Big Channel Cats

GARCIA SOLA  - 8772 acre 35.5 km2
Main target species - Black Bass, Pike and Comizo Barbel
Awesome fishing on this very picturesque lake with its steep cliffs and rocky hills towering over you. Big Bass competitions held on this lake. Depending on your quarry, its normally great fishing on Sola, its renowned for big pike and Black Bass, however you might get a surprise as Big Carp and Barbel show a lot of interest in lures. 
Other species
Carp, Channel Cats and Zander

ZUJAR  - 11179 acre 45 km2
Main species Cat fish and Barbel.
This the smallest lake on the area for boat fishing, has a huge head of Barbel and catfish in it. The Black Bass and Pike go huge here, however their numbers are quite sparse.  
Other species
Carp, Channel Cats

CIJARA - 16222 acre 65.65 km2
Main target species - Black Bass, Pike and Barbel
Another awesome picturesque water on its day, it holds a healthy head of good fish, that’s why the major Bass competitions are held on here. Unfortunately, it’s the nearest lake to Madrid and gets pretty busy. 34 boat trailers at the main boat launch during the week, that’s without the many others on the bank and belly boat anglers.
Other species Zander and Carp.
