Many holidays can be tailor made to suit your personal requirements and you have a number of special choices. Alonissos is a destination fully researched to ensure the highest demands of adventurers.

 I was in Alonissos (next island east from Skopelos) for the first two weeks of
October this year and tried my hand at some spinning & fly fishing from the
shore.
Apart from a few very small Bass/Sea Bream and a Goby type thing that
was it. However, there are bigger fish around, if you can find 'em!

The locals tend to fish with a chunk of bread with multiple hooks in and on
hand lines and can some times catch larger fish 400/500gms 'ish. Again vary
from Bass/Sea Bream type fish and some Flying Fish, although these are
smaller.

I did try from a small motor boat that I hired for the day and fished the
channel between
Alonissos and Manola.
Again, no luck apart from a solitary
and very small Sea Bream. The Toby lure was as big as the fish!!
The reason
I did try was because a couple of days before, I was talking to one of the
guys working with one of the sailing flotillas out of
Steni Vala
and he showed
me two Dorado about 3kg each by trolling black & yellow lures behind the
yacht.
I had also seen fish breaking the surface chasing fry (probably after small
Sardines or Anchovy) just outside the harbour which gave me encouragement,
but that was a few days before I hired the boat and of course, nothing was
chasing fry on the day I went out! Typical!

The other problem is, arranged boat fishing for anglers doesn't seem to be
available around that area. So you have to manage yourself by hiring a small
motor boat but without a fish finder, it's very much chuck it and see.

It was still good fun but I hope you have better luck than I did.
