Graal

Murterska
Jezera, Croatia

If you’re looking for an excuse to explore Croatia’s beautiful coastal waters, going after world-class pelagic predators sounds like a good reason! Captain Ivan Babić, commanding the “Graal”, will put you on the hottest bite around.

Graal is a 24’ fiberglass boat, made by Coronet. She’s equipped with a 260 HP Yanmar outboard engine that’ll propel you towards your fishery with ease. She can fit 4 anglers plus the captain comfortably – don’t let her size fool you, she’s a lean, mean, fishing machine! The fully-enclosed cabin provides cover from rain or shine and the back deck is spacious enough for you and your friends to not bump into each other.

Whether it’s a team-building company trip or you want to treat your family-in-law to a fishing experience, Capt. Ivan has you covered. You’ll go bottom fishing, jigging, or trolling for a wide range of species in the locale. Dentex, Pink Snapper, Mahi Mahi, and more species can all be targeted. If you’re chasing the next test for your fishing muscles, Amberjack offers some of the fiercest fights around.

The A-listers of prestigious pelagic fishing are Bluefin Tuna, Swordfish, and Spearfish. You will target all of these on board the Graal. If you have a Bluefin on your bucket list, as many anglers do, this is the perfect opportunity to tick it off.

Kids aged 5 and up are more than welcome on board. You can even combine your angling adventure with snorkeling; just let the captain know in advance so he can prepare the equipment.

Make memories (and take pictures) that’ll make your friends jealous! Book a trip on board the Graal today and embark on a fishing excursion you’ll remember for years to come.

About the Captain

Ivan Babić
Jezera, Croatia
Member since June 2014

I am young, but I'm one of the most experienced captains in Tuna fishing around. From fishing in rivers and lakes as a kid to fighting giant Tuna my fascination, passion, focus, determination, and never-give-up attitude, has led to my success on the ocean. My specialties are Tuna and Amberjack. Not every day of fishing always yields a spectacular catch, with some days better than others, but I guarantee you I will give you my best to catch as many fish as you possibly can. Even if it means staying out longer or traveling farther. My team and I won 2 competitions in Jezera (years 1999 and 2000) and one 3rd place (2009). In 2013 we took two 7th places in Komiža, Vis, and Jezera, Murter.
