PATMAT Boating & Fishing runs angling trips out of Portorož, and offers to show you what fishing the pristine waters of the Adriatic is all about.

Captain Matej Šimičič Rupert will do his best to make sure you have a fun day full of fishing. He specializes in bottom fishing, trolling, drift fishing, jigging, and spinning – all to get you on that bite. This involves 3 to 6 hour trips, mainly fishing for Bonito, Whiting, Squid, Seabass, Gurnard, and delicious Gilt-head Bream, depending on the season and conditions on the day.

You’ll be fishing from a 19’ Blueline center console boat with enough room for up to 4 anglers at any single time. It also includes a ice box to store your catch, while all the rods, reels, and terminal tackle you’ll need for a productive day on the water come included in the price. There’s no need to worry about fishing licenses, either, as they’ll be provided and handled by the charter.

The boat will be supplied with snacks for your pleasure, and you’ll get to keep some of the catch – sharing some of it with the crew. Feel free to contact the captain before the trip if you have any questions about the specifics of any of the above.

My name is Matej Šimičič Rupert and I have been fishing since I made my first steps. On my father’s side of the family, all the males are basically all fishermen so I was kind of born into it. I was a competitive fisherman between the ages of 8 and 21, and have been a national champion several times, while also competing in World Championships. My fishing team and I brought home two medals for 1st place and one for 3rd place. I have also worked as a commercial fisherman in Croatia with my uncle and also have experience working on a tourist trawler where we showed tourists how trawling is done and taught them how this type of fishing is very harmful to the ecosystem. I am a big spokesperson for preserving marine ecosystems and enjoy teaching people about selective fishing.
