eFISHent

eFISHent invites you to spend a day on the waters of Poreč, Croatia with Captain Nikola in search of the big fish! Captain Nikola says: “It’s about efficient fishing. That’s why we always fish for the species that are in high season.” And this attitude and work ethic is what makes Nikola so successful at catching fish!

Nikola has fished these waters for many years, learning the small and the big secrets the Adriatic waters hide. From January through March you can fish for Conger Eel, then March through mid-May Bluefin Tuna and Albacore using spinning; May to end of June is great for Dentex and Mackerel, and these trips are mainly in the inshore waters using trolling.

The Summer season in Croatia will see you targeting Tuna and smaller fish until mid-August when Bluefish takes reign and stays put until the end of September. You can target them by trolling with live bait. Also in this period, and even until mid-November, big game fish like Mahi Mahi come closer to the Croatia shore.

Fishing is done aboard a 29’ Faeton motor yacht, originally built in 2005. Powered by twin 160 HP Yanmar engines, with a maximum cruising speed of 24 knots, this beauty is very efficient. It can accommodate up to 6 anglers and features a Raymarine GPS and fishfinder unit, a livewell, an icebox, snorkeling and spearfishing equipment, and all safety equipment.

eFISHent provides a variety of top-notch rods including some custom made ones, reels, a variety of tackle, lures, and live bait on all trips. If you are interested in fly fishing, Captain Nikola has fly fishing equipment, too. He also includes fishing licenses for everyone on board and has drinks for refreshments. All you have to bring is a hat, a sunscreen, and some snacks.

    The season is on, the fish are here and you just need to make them bite! The Big Game Trip offers an offshore experience while fishing for the biggest predators the Adriatic sea can offer. Although it is possible to fish during the whole day, you'll mostly start early in the morning, when the big fishing boats bring their big Sardine nets up. At that time, a huge amount of sea life, which includes Tunas, Dolphins, and small fish, make the perfect place to hook your first giant.

As a kid, I was "wasting" my time fishing ponds around my hometown Pazin, which was the only sea I could reach with my bike. Then, 25 years ago, my father bought a first boat which changed everything. Soon, I was competing on the national level, first just as a diver (Croatian champion) and later as a spearfisherman. In 2005, I bought my first boat and started to fish only with artificial lures, fishing mostly for Seabass and Bluefish. In short time my commitment was recognized by one of the lure companies and I became a full-time company team member. After that, in the next few years, I traveled to Sweden where I tested the lures on Baltic predators, fishing for big Pike and Salmon, jigging for Cod, and spinning for Seatrout. At the same time, my Tuna obsession was growing so I was using every single chance to fish for a Bluefin. I was lucky enough to fish with one of the best Tuna fishermen in the Adriatic sea, earn fast and enter the big game even faster by catching 270 kg fish!
