Shore or Rock fishing near to BArcares or Collioure

Post by kenny »

Is there decent Shore or Rock fishing near to BArcares or Collioure please

I prefer to fish from rocks, rather than beach, so I guess Collioure would be better


Is there anywhere accessible near to Collioure , preferably on the outskirts of Collioure (no traffic or parking issues)


Thanks

They fish off the sea break in St Cyprien, but in the last 17 years I have never seen anyone catch anything.

Try the cliff path from Paulilles to Banyuls. Plenty of access points. Ditto for the path from Banyuls to Cerbere. Please check for zones where fishing is not allowed. Either in the protected areas of the Marine Reserve or designated bathing zones at popular beaches. Every year people die on the Cote Vermeille when they either fall in or are swept away by big waves.

The cliff walk is called the Sentier du Littoral. Why not contact the Office de Tourisme at Banyuls, Port Vendres or Cerbere? I've had a quick look on the Internet and there seems to be loads of info around.

I've seen lots of people fishing off the big jetty at Port Vendres, right round in the Cap Béar direction beyond Le Poisson Rouge restaurant. Once saw a Spanish guy with a dozen octopus, bashing them against the jetty!

Boil in copious water. Add stone; cook until stone is tender. Though in truth I love octopus.

An update

tried several times fishing from shore various location in Barcares and beach at Leucate Cap, nothing caught

Tried an angling trip from Leucate marina

left at 07, returned at 1200
Prices 35 Euro using hired rod, or 30 using own rod
Comfortable boat, coffee and light lunch included, good value

Plenty of good sized mackerel caught

We saw Tuna 200 meters from boat, but none caught

There are "no fishing" signs along the sea breaks at Canet Port, however there are always up to 20 people fishing there almost every day, some using 2 or 3 rods .!!
Never saw anybody catch anything though !!!!

Rock fishing spots

Anse du Portelle looks like a good bet. It is just off the road into Collioure from Argeles direction. There is free parking via an archway under the railway. Then a short walk along the sentier will reveal a variety of rock fishing positions with varying levels accessibility depending on how much gear you are carrying.
