Ulica Giordana Paliage 5
Rovinj, Croatia

Abyss Fishing is one of the first charters in this part of Croatia that offers unique fishing experience - Big Game Fishing and bottom/sport fishing on 9meters long boat Damor Croatia.

Our 20 years of experience with different types of fishing have made our knowledge about deep sea quite extensive what was one of the key factors of our biggest success and record caught in 2014 - bluefin tuna of 260kg (573 pounds)! Tuna was caught with our guests on the boat and it was a challenging fight of almost 2 hours.

Every guest is highly appreciated on our boat and our goal is not only to provide excitement and fun during fishing, but we also aim to share our knowledge and fishing secrets. Fishing equipment on Abyss is in accordance to IGFA rules, and is always in great condition. Fishing rods are made by famous Italian producer Normic. Breakfast and lunch are included when going on Big Game Fishing and are prepared on the boat by our crew.

Besides fishing trips, we also offer other types of excursions and boat sightseeing and every trip can be custom-made to our guests’ wishes. Clean sky-blue sea, well-protected and diverse coast with ample vegetation, and rich offshore waters are ideal conditions for the perfect fishing experience. Also close by are the Brijuni National Park, Parks of Nature Bay Lim and Punta Corrente, and 10 sunken ships (Baron Gautsch) which offer abundant sea life.

I went on a tuna fishing adventure with Abyss fishing charter. The boat was nice and had plenty of space. The crew explained and showed me every thing I wanted to know. I caught a fairly big tuna and had a decent fight pulling it up. It was an awesome experience that the crew and I shared together. Overall, I had a pleasent trip whit an adrenaline rush in the end! Time well spent :-)

Booked a trip with the “Abyss” a month before to make sure that Capt. Ozren is available to take my crew out. We booked the Big Game Fishing Trip, of course! :)
Bluefin Tuna was the fish we were looking for. A month before, Capt. Ozren caught a 340kg Bluefin, and we were hoping to find something similar. Of course, September isn’t the best for a big fish, but expectations were there.

We started the trip around 5:30 am from Rovinj Marina. Capt. Ozren and the deckhand Mateo gave us a warm welcome. The boat was well prepared and clean. Dead bait, food, drinks. Everything looked perfect.
Captain bought some pizza and ham which we enjoyed a lot. When we weren’t catching fish, we were eating and spending quality time with this knowledgeable and very friendly captain and deckhand.

In the first 90 minutes, we were looking for big commercials boats that are fishing for sardine as the tuna are usually there, eating the sardine that falls off the net. Unfortunately, tuna was somewhere else.
Then, we decided to do some bottom fishing for the live bait. We caught some small Mackerel and Snapper.

We were moving from spot to spot about 7 miles offshore. When the things didn’t work well, the captain decided to go further offshore and moved the boat about 14 miles away from the shore. We started seeing some Tuna on the sonar, but no luck. The Important thing is that we were chumming non-stop, luring the fish. After about 6 hours of searching for Tuna, some luck finally knocked on our door. We were not sure if this was Tuna, but we’ve never lost the faith.

It was a nice Bluefin! :) Peter was fighting her for about 15 minutes and finally landed the fish onboard.  It was a 30kg (65lbs) Bluefin Tuna! We were happy to catch this beauty and thankful for the experience. Capt. Ozren and Mateo cleaned and iced the fish. The fish belongs to them, and they are selling it. We were informed about this upfront and felt good as they are working hard to keep the business going + delivering a high-quality service.

Captain wanted to stay longer and land a few more fish, but we had to go back as we had another fishing trip that afternoon.

At the end of this beautiful experience, we tipped the crew and agreed to re-book with them in October-November when the fish is biting again. Capt. Ozren told us that the BIG FISH is biting in August, but October and November are better for the quantity. We’ll definitely come back and highly recommend to everyone who is looking for the similar experience!
