Spanish Words and Phrases For Going Fishing And Seafood Lovers

In today’s Spanish lesson, I’ll cover some helpful Spanish vocabulary words for “pescadores” (fishermen). In fact, the Spanish vocabulary words that I will cover in this lesson are very useful words to learn not only for Spanish language learners who like to go fishing, but also for Spanish language learners who like to eat fish.

About a month ago, I received an email from a customer who wrote:

“Patrick, I like to go fishing. I thought it would be interesting if you covered some vocabulary for fishing in one of your emails.”

Well, last week I went fishing in a small lake here in Medellín. I didn’t catch “nothing”. But I found myself using some vocabulary words that may come in handy if you like to fish.

1. Hook – hook

The fish swallowed the hook.
The fish swallowed the hook.

2. Fishing rod – fishing rod

I bought a fishing rod to go fishing.
I bought a fishing rod to go fishing.

3. Bait – bait

The fisherman puts worms on the hook as bait to attract the fish.
The fisherman puts worms on the hook as bait to attract fish.

And here are the names of certain types of fish:

a. Trout – trout

B. Róbalo – robalo (pronounced and written “robalo” in Colombia – with the first stressed syllable. But in some other parts of Latin America “robalo” is pronounced and written with the accent on the penultimate
syllable.)

C. Red snapper – red snapper

D. Tilapia – tilapia

Before I go, I want to warn you of a very common mistake native English speakers make when learning Spanish.

The “fried fish” is NOT called “fried fish”. “Fried fish” is the phrase for “fried fish” (emphasis added). Or as some Spanish speakers say in very informal or conversational Spanish: “pescao frito” (sic).

Before finishing today’s Spanish lesson, here is a tip to help you increase your Spanish vocabulary. Always carry a pen and a notebook or smartphone with you when you are around Spanish speakers. That way, if you hear a word or phrase you’re unfamiliar with, you can write it down before you forget it.

And this concludes today’s Spanish lesson covering useful Spanish vocabulary words for “fishermen” (fishermen) and Spanish language learners who like to go fishing and Spanish language learners who like to eat fish.
