WELCOME TO CROATIA -The new European Big Game Fishing destination!

Big Game fishing species in the Adriatic

In the last few years Europe has got a new destination for big game anglers in the Adriatic sea . It's eastern part, Croatian coast has been known for centuries as a habitat of one of most desired big game fish - bluefin tuna.

Adriatic sea has a unique characteristic which puts it in front of other fishing destinations. Namely, the bluefin tuna, otherwise a highly migratory species has chosen Adriatic sea for it's home and this is the only known place on earth, where bluefin can be caught any time of the year.

Tunas here range from baby size to giants in the range over 300 kg. They are present along the outer coast of the hundreds of islands and often they come well inshore entering estuaries and channels.Bluefin tuna is not the only important big game species in Adriatic. The ultimate fishing challenge for many sport fisherman is a - broadbill swordfish which is present in fair numbers. Sharks , even not as frequent as in tropical destinations are respectable opponents. The blue shark and thresher shark are targeted by big game fisherman in Adriatic. March and April offer great fishing for little tunnies , which come in huge numbers in the inshore waters. Little tunnies in Adriatic grow to sizes up to 13 kg, during some seasons the average fish is around 10 kilos. During the fall, fisherman have a choice among albacore farther offshore and amberjack on the outer sides of many islands. Dolphin fish or mahi-mahi are present in great numbers.
