No tuna hit but one bull shark was a different experience. Dolphin watching also fun.

I went on a tuna fishing adventure with Abyss fishing charter. The boat was nice and had plenty of space. The crew explained and showed me every thing I wanted to know. I caught a fairly big tuna and had a decent fight pulling it up. It was an awesome experience that the crew and I shared together. Overall, I had a pleasent trip whit an adrenaline rush in the end! Time well spent :-)

My day fishing with ABYSS was one of the highlights of my holiday throughout Europe. I would recommend it to anyone thinking of going on a big game charter in Croatia…. you won’t regret it.

From start to finish Ozren and his deckhand were professional, friendly and more than happy to share a wealth of knowledge about fishing and Croatia in general. I had plenty of laughs and caught a 37kg tuna as well!

Cheers Ozren!

Booked a trip with the “Abyss” a month before to make sure that Capt. Ozren is available to take my crew out. We booked the Big Game Fishing Trip, of course! :)
Bluefin Tuna was the fish we were looking for. A month before, Capt. Ozren caught a 340kg Bluefin, and we were hoping to find something similar. Of course, September isn’t the best for a big fish, but expectations were there.

We started the trip around 5:30 am from Rovinj Marina. Capt. Ozren and the deckhand Mateo gave us a warm welcome. The boat was well prepared and clean. Dead bait, food, drinks. Everything looked perfect.
Captain bought some pizza and ham which we enjoyed a lot. When we weren’t catching fish, we were eating and spending quality time with this knowledgeable and very friendly captain and deckhand.

In the first 90 minutes, we were looking for big commercials boats that are fishing for sardine as the tuna are usually there, eating the sardine that falls off the net. Unfortunately, tuna was somewhere else.
Then, we decided to do some bottom fishing for the live bait. We caught some small Mackerel and Snapper.

We were moving from spot to spot about 7 miles offshore. When the things didn’t work well, the captain decided to go further offshore and moved the boat about 14 miles away from the shore. We started seeing some Tuna on the sonar, but no luck. The Important thing is that we were chumming non-stop, luring the fish. After about 6 hours of searching for Tuna, some luck finally knocked on our door. We were not sure if this was Tuna, but we’ve never lost the faith.

It was a nice Bluefin! :) Peter was fighting her for about 15 minutes and finally landed the fish onboard.  It was a 30kg (65lbs) Bluefin Tuna! We were happy to catch this beauty and thankful for the experience. Capt. Ozren and Mateo cleaned and iced the fish. The fish belongs to them, and they are selling it. We were informed about this upfront and felt good as they are working hard to keep the business going + delivering a high-quality service.

Captain wanted to stay longer and land a few more fish, but we had to go back as we had another fishing trip that afternoon.

At the end of this beautiful experience, we tipped the crew and agreed to re-book with them in October-November when the fish is biting again. Capt. Ozren told us that the BIG FISH is biting in August, but October and November are better for the quantity. We’ll definitely come back and highly recommend to everyone who is looking for the similar experience!

we went on the four hour bottom fishing trip.
Boat was great, skipper was great, weather was great. We caught lots of fish, mostly red snapper but the majority of them were small. It was a great trip and I would definitely go with Abyss again and would love to try the big game fishing!

This was my greatest fishing trip, caught a 138kg fish and it tasted so good eating fresh Sashimi. Captain Ozren and his first mate are top notch fishermen and were very impressive setting us up to land the big one. I will be back again for more action.
