The World's Best Sport-Fishing Destinations for July

We track the best fishing for marlin and sailfish around the world

Pack your bags for great fishing this month off the Canary Islands, Bermuda's Challenger Bank or the drop-offs and rips around Kona, Hawaii, or stay a bit closer to home and hit Florida or Texas instead. The choice is yours, limited only by budget and imagination. Our editors' dream trip: targeting big blue marlin and giant bluefin tuna off La Gomera in the eastern Atlantic.
