All About Croatian Fishing Destinations
Just as is the case with real estate, it is all about location, location, location when it comes to catching fish. Every angler knows this.
Croatia is an excellent place for anglers to catch fish while they take in the beauty and charms of the Adriatic. This is why the seafood is such a staple in Croatia. Here is some information for those of you who desire to catch some fish while visiting the region.
First, it is important to know that a license is required since fishing is strictly regulated in Croatia. You can inquire about and obtain a license from a tourism agency.
The next thing you need to know is that fishing opportunities are abound since there is a large variety of fish here. Fish common to the Adriatic include Atlantic mackerel, tuna, grouper, red porgy and even game fish such as Mahi Mahi and Atlantic bonito. Another advantage for anglers who visit Croatia is that since fishing is such an important activity here, visitors can easily consult with the local fishermen who know certain locations by heart.
Choice Fishing Locations in Croatia
Patience is virtue when it comes to fishing. However we know that as a visitor you may not have the time or inclination to spend days, weeks or even months deciding where the best fishing locations are in the country and along the Adriatic. Therefore, we’ve selected some ideal fishing locations for you.
Islands of Cres and Lošinj
Sea bass, two-banded sea bream and other fish are common to the waters of the Northern Adriatic. Anglers can charter a boat and explore and fish the Kvarner Island which is in the area and is popular with local and visiting fisherman.
Island of Mljet
The warm water of this national treasure attracts many fish varieties such as white groupers, common Pandora, fork beards, red scorpion and others. However, if you desire to fish in nearby Mljet National Park know that fishing there is not allowed.
The Kornati Region
Perhaps the most bountiful fishing spot in the entire country is the Kornati region. The area is surrounded by islets and reefs sprinkled along the deep blue waters of the Adriatic.
Finally, although fishing is quite popular here there are certain areas where fishing is prohibited. These areas include: the estuaries of the river Dragonja, Mirna, Raša, Riječina, Zrmanja, Jadro, Žrnovnica, Cetina, Neretva and Rijeka Dubrovačka, as well in the Lim channel, Medulin bay and bay Klimno on the island Krk. However, these few places where fishing is prohibited should in no way discourage those of you who do wish to do some fishing while visiting our country.
So, while you are on one of our Croatia tours, remember that you will be able to enjoy Croatia travel packages that will give you opportunities to fish and to enjoy the finest seafood in the region.
