Captain
Nikola Mijandrušič

Member since July 2017 Vrsar, Croatia
Background
As a kid, I was "wasting" my time fishing ponds around my hometown Pazin, which was the only "sea" I could reach by bike. Then, 25 years ago, my father bought a boat which changed everything. Soon, I was competing on the national level, first 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, hooking mostly Seabass and Bluefish. In a short time, my commitment was recognized by one of the lure companies and I became a full-time company team member. After that, and over the next few years, I traveled to Sweden where I tested lures on Baltic predators, fishing for big Pike and Salmon, jigging for Cod, and spinning for Seatrout. My Tuna obsession was growing at the same time, so I used every single chance I got to fish for 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.
Techniques
My favorite technique is popping and spinning for a big fish like Tuna. But my obsession right now is sea fly fishing which is a new thing in Croatia... or it will be a new thing here cause no one is doing it, yet. All in all I'm not a slave to any technique, I like to do what works at a certain moment or time of year and always consier the target species I decide to fish for.
