Big Game Fishing Artena

Explore the beauty and abundance of the Adriatic Sea with Big Game Fishing Artena and hop aboard for a day full of angling fun and games! Captain Branimir Ukas and his father Šime are professional and friendly captains that will take you out, put on you on awesome fish, and do everything for you to catch something extraordinary.

Šibenik archipelago is a synonym for plenty of sun, crystal clear sea with a plethora of different fish and many coves hiding beautiful beaches – this charter provides you with the perfect opportunity to explore it all. But, what can you expect to find at the end of your line?

Tuna bite in these parts of Croatia is particularly exquisite, so you can come back to the shore with Yellowfin or Skipjack Tuna bigger than yourself (up to whopping 1300 lb), as well as Little Tunny. Want more of a varied catch? How about impressive Swordfish that can go up to 65+ lb, acrobatic Amberjack, as well as Dentex and Seabass? The name of the game is trolling, jigging, drifting, or long-lining, and you can choose between day and night 8-hour trips, depending on your preferences.

Whatever adventure you choose, your ride will be a 32’ Rio 900 Fish that is freshly restored and powered by twin 250 HP Cummins engines. You and up to 4 more anglers will have plenty of room to fish comfortably and reel in your catch. She’s outfitted with top-notch equipment like GPS, fish finder, echo-sounder, rods, reels, tackle, as well as natural bait and artificial lures. In case you need any additional equipment like harpoons or ice box, the captain will provide.

The first mate will be with you on all trips, assisting with everything you could possibly need, and if you’re happy with his service, tips are welcome. Families with kids are welcome aboard, as well as parties of good angling buddies.

Captains Branimir and Šime invite you to Big Game Fishing Artena to reveal all their fishing secrets to you. It’s time play the game(fish)!
