Ascension has it all when it comes to spearfishing.
I first visited Ascension in April 2005 ..... We had no idea where to go or where to look and armed only with a dated chart we started mapping areas we thought might hold fish...We were not disappointed - all of us taking more than 5 personal best fish on our first trip. I was so taken by the place I made it my home and started AIFC.
I There are various pelagic species found around the ROCK
Blue Marlin (largest taken 800lbs)
Atlantic Sailfish are in abundance from Dec to April along with White Marlin, Spearfish and Dorado.
Large yellowfin Tuna (largest taken 327lbs) patrol the ledges and dropoffs, looking for food and with them come the Rainbow Runner and Wahoo.
Inshore species include, Rock Hind (grouper) amberjack, Almaco Jack, Black Jacks, Horse Eye Jacks, Rainbow Runner, Dorado and Tuna.
During the bait season when the fry come inshore to spawn, you can see 100kg Tuna 20 ft from the beach, smashing baitfish in the evenings. They are often accompanied by loads of Rainbow Runner, Dorado, Amberjacks, Almaco's and Blue Runner.
We have had big Tuna here in 2m of water right on the beach! This is truly a special place.
You will encounter true monster fish on a daily basis and I can guarantee you will have a few stories to take home with you.
