Bonito fishing in the Cantabrico aboard the San Roque Divine,




The capture of Albacore goes back several centuries ago when boats Cantabrian ports out to sea using small rowboats and sailing. Fished with art crankbait or trolling (fishing techniques hook). Traditionally this has been the style of fishing more used by fishermen in northern Spain until the middle of this century broke the call live bait. The Cantabria fleet employ the technique of live bait. They are traditional crafts using cane and hook. This means that the Tuna is fished one by one, allowing you to select those samples of better quality. In addition, these techniques do not involve incidental catch of other species or deteriorate the seabed, unlike those that are not selective. 

Fishing Albacore is carried out in the coastal June to October, when the specimen is at its peak for fish and consumed. At this time, the boats head to the Bay of Biscay, where the most important core fishing Albacore concentrated. The boats have to fish for anchovy to be used as bait first, keep them alive in nurseries seawater bearing. After locating hours or days later the bank Bonito, the boat sits on top of him. The sailors then "macizan" sea throwing live bait alongside the ship while directing strong jets of water at the same site to look like water "boils" in the amount of anchovy. It also serves to hide the fishermen while throwing reeds with bocartes hookups. 

Pretty excited about food, up to throwing on the bait surface. Once captured the top with an accurate blow of oarlocks and stored in the hold between layers of ice waiting to be landed quickly in the harbor. The images they have been recorded by the crew of the San Roque Divine
