Fishing in Dubrovnik should be on your radar this season! Dubrovnik is so much more than one of the main film sites for Game of Thrones. Located on the coast of the Adriatic Sea, this beautiful town offers some incredible fishing opportunities. A tourist hot spot, you’ll come for the tours and stay for the fishing.

Known For

Croatia has great spots for freshwater fishing, but in Dubrovnik, it’s all about offshore fishing on the Adriatic Sea. As one of the clearest and shallowest seas in Europe, the species that call these waters home are varied and perfect for recreational fishing. The Adriatic Sea is usually calm, without strong tides, making it perfect for beginners as well as more experienced anglers.

Croatia is called the country of 1,000 islands for a very good reason. A short half-hour boat ride will take you to the Elaphiti Islands. The hot spots you should visit for awesome fishing include Koločep, Lopud, and Šipan.

Big Game Fishing

You can start fishing reefs and shipwrecks just one mile from the coast of Dubrovnik. You’re likely to begin your fishing charter by going past the old city walls, so have your camera ready to take in this ancient structure. Once past these ancient walls, you’ll be able to try a range of techniques, such as trolling, live baiting, and bottom wreck fishing. This of course depends on the conditions on the day, as well as which species you’re targeting.

The most impressive fish you can catch here is the elusive Swordfish – night trips are your best chance of catching this pelagic fish. The Adriatic Sea is also a hotspot for catching Bluefin Tuna, as well as Amberjack, Dentex, John Dory, and Grouper. The prized Bluefin Tuna can be caught from August to January.

Spearfishing

You can spearfish during the day, which has a very long tradition in Dubrovnik. The Adriatic Sea lends itself perfectly to this technique, due to its high visibility and shallow waters. No scuba diving equipment can be used here, so this is best for freediving spearos with experience.

When spearfishing, you’ll be able to target Grouper, Dentex, and Yellowtail Amberjack, as well as Mullet and Brown Meager (also called Corb). It’s recommended that when spearfishing you head out with a guide. This is so they can inform you of the regulations for each species on your trip.

The best spearfishing can be found around the islands of Molunat and Glavat, 40 miles and 70 miles away from Dubrovnik respectively. These beautiful islands offer the perfect depths for larger game that is usually out of reach when spearfishing. Head over during late summer and stay till fall for excellent spearfishing options. If you wish to compete in a spearfishing competition, you’ll need to head to the island of Mali Lošinj for the New Year Spearfishing Cup tournament. This is a nine-hour drive away, but well worth the trek.

Fishing Tips

  • When going after the king of the Adriatic, Bluefin Tuna, try trolling with live or dead bait. Mackerel, herring, mullet, and squid all work well. If artificial lures are more your speed, use spoons, plugs, or feathers for great results.  

  • You can catch Swordfish during the full moon. They love squid baits. Artificial lures that look like squid but light up are also a fantastic way to attract these deep water Billfish.

Need to Know

Fishing from the harbor and public beaches is restricted in high tourist season (between May and October), so head out on a boat for the best experience during the summer.

The mollusk Date Shell (locally called Prstaci) is protected by law, and you will be fined if caught taking one. Similarly, if you catch a female Spiny Lobster, you must release it regardless of its size.

Rules and Regulations

Your fishing license is likely to be included in the price of the trip if you book with a charter captain.  Your captain will also inform you what you can catch during the season and the legal limits of each species.

Everyone who fishes in Croatia needs to purchase a fishing license and a membership to the Croatian Sea Sport Fishing Association. You will need proof of identification in order to get you license, which costs roughly $20 per day with the membership card included

Budget

Croatia has a tourist tax for all visitors, which is less than $1.25 per day. This is usually paid at your hotel during check-in. Disabled people and children under 12 are exempt from paying.

The average price for six anglers on a full day trip is around $1,250. On a half day trip, expect to pay from around $850 for groups of six.

Getting There

Fly directly into Dubrovnik, at the Čilipi Airport. This is a 35-minute drive along the D8 to the city center.

The summer season is incredibly busy with tourists in Dubrovnik, so book your fishing trip well in advance. Make your own history in this ancient city!

March is all about the Amberjack, Little Tunny, and Bonito. Out of the water you can visit the Mediterranean Health Festival.

April

April is a good month for catching Sharks, and it’s also a great month for Bonito. The weather reaches highs of 18° C, so dress appropriately.

Go to a Christmas fair, try lots of food and drink, and follow it all up with a New Year’s Eve concert and fireworks. This is another great month for Swordfish and Bluefin Tuna fishing.

Captain Srđan gave us a memorable day in our Croatia trip! We had a great time on the water. We tried out several different fishing styles, combined with stunning views. Captain Srđan was very kind and helpful! We took the evening trip ( 15.00 - 19.00) and it was good. We caught some smaller fish and also Little Tunny! :)

We very much enjoyed this fishing trip, captain Srdjan customized the programme as we needed and we liked the good mood and relaxed atmosphere he brought on the boat. Besides fishing, we enjoyed snorkelling and swimming, he knows, where are nice places to go to. And we caught a big Bonito fish!

We really enjoyed a great time on the boat fishing with srdan… besides that we had nice bites it was also cool to be on the sea with his boat, drinking a cold beer and listen to music… also we visited the blue caves at the end of the day to have a swim and cool down. I would always go again and recommend it… no need to bring experience. :-) thank you !! cheers Claudia&Fabian

Unfortunately the fishing wasn’t that good the day we went, however, the captain was very knowledgeable about fishing the area and still got us on some smaller reef fish. If anything bigger was biting I know he would have gotten us on it. I would recommend it. He let us know before hand that the fishing had been down but we wanted to try anyways. Don’t hesitate to book because he will get you catching fish.

We had a great morning on the water with Marjan! He was very knowledgable, friendly, and in the days before the trip he answered all of our questions promptly. We know to never expect 100% to catch fish, but we were very pleased that we did catch some. Marjan offered nice snacks and drinks, and we finished the day with a beautiful snorkel. Highly recommended!

Smart Captain took us to place with guaranteed fish first. These were smaller but easy to catch and plentiful. We then tried our luck deeper and my son landed a Red Snapper. Having a cookout at a local restaurant. Professional timely and an all around good time.

Wir haben die Zeit mit Serdan sehr genossen. Wir waren 4 junge Männer aus Deutschland und hatten einen ganzen Tag mot Serdan auf dem Wasser gebucht. Alles war sehr unkompliziert auch die Kommunikation. Wir haben einiges gefangen und Serdan hat uns ein paar Coole Spots gezeigt. Wir hätten uns ein bisschen mehr Kommunikation auf dem Boot gewünscht, so nach dem Motto was wir fangen wollen, wie und was als nächstes auf dem Plan steht. Ansonsten war alles super, auf Wünsche wurde gut eingegangen.
