Split Sportfishing

Split Sportfishing invites you to check out the local fishery in style and be amazed by all the beauty and productivity these waters have to offer.

Capt. Ante will do his best to make sure you have a fun day full of fishing. He specializes in bottom fishing, trolling, jigging, and popping, all to get you on that bite. You can choose between a few different trips, mainly fishing for John Dory, Dentex, Scorpionfish, Amberjack, and bluefin Tuna, depending on the season and conditions on the day.

Check out why this tour will be featured in a fishing show this year!

Your fishing adventure starts on a 22’ Hydrosport 646 RIB boat that can fast and comfortably take up to 3 anglers to some of our best fishing spots. This boat features an ice box, Simrad 12" fishfinder, and Minn Kota wireless trolling motor.

All rods, reels, and terminal tackle are included in the price so you can focus on what really matters, fishing. Your trip will include all the necessary fishing licenses for the day.

Since beautiful, hidden bays and coves are just a ride away from our fishing spots, we seize the opportunity to relax, swim and grill at one. The best way to test our catch is to prepare fish out on the open fire by ourselves.

Full-day trips include a catch-of-the-day barbecue. On half-day trips, you can take the fish home and prepare it your way.

There will be complimentary drinks and snacks aboard for your convenience during the trip, but feel free to bring your own drinks or food if you prefer.

Children are welcome aboard so you’re good to get the young ones started early.

Book your trip now and hit the water with Split Sportfishing.
