Another bonus is the delights the sea offers, from culinary to recreation and adventure. For those who seek a true escapade, the sport of fishing and for that matter big game fishing is a buzz. In recent years the sport has been a drawing card for gentlemen in suits and working uniforms, the very moment they turn into fishermen and are driven by the sea is when the adrenaline pumps exponentially through your veins, meaning you leave behind your everyday life and immerse yourself into the serene world of the Adriatic Sea.
It is an exciting sport using fast boats on the open sea to catch powerful fish such as tuna and marlin. Licences are for sale in travel agencies. The largest and most prized catch on the Croatian Adriatic is bluefin tuna, which is in season from August to January. Other “big game” which can be caught in this way include swordfish (sabljarka), greater amberjack (gof), Atlantic bonito (palamida), dolphin fish (lampuga), and blue shark (modrulj). The beauty of this sport is its unpredictable nature and the co-ordination of the whole crew on board the boat.
It can be organised via phone and can last up to half a day or the entire day, it can be midweek or over weekend depending on your preference, weather conditions and the availability of the ship.
The usual period is from May to November. Perhaps the best thing is that everyone can participate, whether they are beginners or experienced fishermen, since an experienced captain who leads the tour adapts to the experience of the participants and makes sure that everyone savours their adventure. One does not need to bring anything on board - all equipment is included, along with a snack and drinking water.
