JRS Fishing Team

When you think of Belgrade, a bustling city centre probably comes to mind – however, Captain Jovan Bubonja is here to show you a whole new side of Serbia’s capital! If you’re a freshwater fanatic, or have always wanted to try out some top-notch river fishing, come aboard JRS Fishing Team charters. Get ready to explore the waters of not one, but two, world-famous rivers!

Capt. Jovan is a local angler who believes that every fisherman remembers the feeling that comes with hooking their first seriously big catch. For him, this was a 10 kg Pike! Soon after, he became hooked on fishing the Sava and Danube rivers in Belgrade, exploring these waters for world-famous freshwater species. He decided to turn this passion into a charter business, and now offers trips that take clients to the hottest fishing grounds in the downtown area.

Whether you’re a novice fisherman or an experienced angler, Capt. Jovan warmly welcomes you on board his 17’ Nautic Plast fish and ski vessel. She’s built to accommodate up to 3 anglers, and provides a truly up-close-and-personal experience. She’s decked out with top-notch navigational and safety gear, including Garmin 7SV fishfinder to maximize your chances of finding (and catching!) some serious freshwater predators during your trip.

Speaking of freshwater predators, you’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to the species on offer. You’ll have the chance to hook Catfish, Northern Pike, Zander, and Whitefish (Som, Stuka, Smudj, and Bela Riba, if you want to speak like a local!), plus others. Your captain will be on hand to show you the best techniques to use to hook your dream catch, so whether you’re a newbie or a more experience angler, he’ll have you reeling them in!

Your trip includes top-of-the-line Shimano rods and reels, as well as lures, live bait, and a valid fishing license for all guests. The price of fuel is an additional cost. Come aboard JRS Fishing Team and get ready to experience Belgrade as you’ve never seen it before!

There is no particular reason why one starts fishing. However, one always remembers the feeling of landing your first big fish. For me, it was 10 years ago when I caught a Pike roughly 10 kg. After an interesting season of offshore fishing, I bought my first fishing boat. Since then, I've spent weeks on the river Sava and Danube fishing. Today, as an experienced tour guide, I can show clients the best fishing spots in the downtown area.
