Sport fishing is the activity of catching fish in a competitive setting or for entertainment purposes. Sport fishing in Dubai falls in the category of hobbies that put very little pressure on the environment: we are talking about an activity that demands nothing for the joy it gives in return. The sheer leisure pursuit, this is the main trait of sport fishing, as it has nothing to do with profit or survival issues.


The most basic form of sport fishing in Dubai requires nothing else but lots of hooks, a rod, a line and a reel. Of course, there are other additional devices, known as terminal tackle, that people use so as to alter or complete the way the bait attracts fish. Some common tackle items for commercial and sport fishing, floats, swivels and weights deserve a first mention. Sometimes, instead of baits fishermen rely on different types of lures, thus, sport fishing incorporates handcrafter applications as well as plastic artificial flies and imitations of crawlers. Sport fishing trips take you out to the deep seas around Dubai. These trips normally take place early morning starting around 5 am and finish around 1 pm in the afternoon. The sport fishing trip in Dubai includes a visit to Moon Island and a slew of activities such as trolling, casting and jigging.

There are different ways of doing sport fishing in Dubai. The reasons why people have come up with this diversity were mainly invented to set competition standards and move the practice to a more peaceful environment friendly level. In big-game fishing the main action is carried out in boats, too, and the catch is represented by large open-water fishes such as sharks, marlin or tuna. The skilled crew at Dubai Fishing are always there alongside to help and guide as needed. They want it as much as the guests do. Putting fish in the boat — and doing a good job of it — is what keeps the guests coming back. The mates are there to check your drag settings, make sure your hook is baited right, throw chunks to keep the fish around the boat and to coach and rally the troops.


Relaxation and fun define a sport that can be easily defined as a catch-release game. So the next time you are in the mood for some sport fishing in Dubai, be sure to check out our offerings at Dubai Fishing.
