Canaries can be difficult - small tunny and bluefish - Avram on the "other" forum is the best resource for Fuerteventura and Canaries fishing - are you limited by flying time with the kids?
Luke will be coming (8), so i'll need to factor that in, so somewhere not too distant would be better, but not a show-stopper. It'd just be nice to get something on the end of the line which 'really' pulls back !!

What about Portugal? I think they still have a properly good bass season around now - and the chance of some proper, proper bass?

Hmm if I wanted to go somewhere I would maybe try the Azores - fairly small flight time, weather may be a bit iffy but a good chance of something fishy ... or if you can do a longer flight then Florida or Cabo San Lucas would be on the list - Cabo would definately get something pulling your string and its fairly cheap out in Mexico still at the moment!

I'm about to book a little trip to visit some friends in cayman in feb time, and I fully intend to take a lure rod across with me. Does mean I need to find a decent travel rod though. No idea what the fishing is like, but will be a fairly nice location to blank!

nah you don't need a travel rod! make yourself a DIY tube from B&Q - hard drainage pipe and cap both ends off with foam / ductape and bubble wrap

Steer clear of the Flambeau Bazooka tubes - mine is shot after one trip to the seychelles :/

my bazookas been fine so far - its sturdy (except when fully extended) - what happened (where did it break?)

Azores looks great - property looks cheap too - sort of like Devon but with bigger fish!

My bazooka has split at the head joint (weak point whether it is extended or not :/) spoke to **** about it as an off cuff remark and he reckoned he had seen a few go there - inc one he owned :/

Florida is a good bet too. I have never been in Jan or Feb but caught plenty at other times. Fishing is pretty easy using live shrimp of the beaches and in the inlets. Loads for the kids to do and there is the added bonus of Bass Pro Shops..... can be hard on the wallet though! Florida sportsman website is good for a bit of info.
