Big Game Fishing - Skippered

idea to hire a boat with local guide (skipper) who can take you to
the best fishing spots and who can reveal to you secrets of big game fishing.
All our skippers are highly experienced professionals with many years of
fishing experience in Croatian waters, and with a passion for the
deep sea fishing. Most of them also participate in big game fishing
tournaments, as succesfull competitors, and some of them are
among Croatia's leading big game anglers.
All our fishing boats are fully outfitted with world-class rods and reels

and state of the art navigation electronics. We use the latest, top of the
range fishing tackle and equipment for your maximum enjoyment and safety.

in the prices. There's no need to pay extra for a recreational fishing license
either, we cover everyone on board under ours! The only thing
not included in the price will be your food and drink. Although all the
boats are fully outfitted with top-of-the-line equipment and carry all the
fishing gear and tackle you need, you can also use your personal equipment

The different techniques can be combined to maximize your chances of
hooking the big one! Techniques include trolling artificial and natural
baits, and chumming from a stationary or drifting boat.
Trolling is a method of big game fishing where one or more fishing
lines, baited with lures or bait fish, are drawn slowly through the
water, behind the boat. Trolling is the most popular and effective way
to find and hook most types of big game fish and it is most effective
with live bait. The type of bait will depend largely on which type of
fish you are hoping to hook. If live bait is unavailable, we will use a
lure designed to resemble live bait.
Chumming, or chunking, is the process of throwing pieces of bait fish
overboard to attract larger game fish. Chumming works best with highly
predatory big game fish like sharks, but will produce results for most
species of big game fish.
