Anyone know of a off-shore fishing charter that allows walk ups?
I am not interested in renting a boat for myself, so I hope there is a public charter available.

Otherwise, is there anyone out there that would be interested in a fishing trip?
Maybe we can get a group together and share the charter cost.

I'm interested-I'll keep an eye on this thread to see if it goes anywhere.

chk cobone for good deals on hiring fishing boats,
I've done the Cobone deals a few times with various charters, in my opinion a load of rubbish. Typically you get crammed on to a small boat with a 4ft rod and a bit of squid. no fish fiders on the boats so pot luck if you catch anything, if you do tends to be small fry.

They only take you a mile or so from the Atlantis so forget any ideas of catching big GT's or kings.

i need advice on what trace to use for surf fishing here in Dubai? any help?
Definitely a wire trace is recommended. I now use 45lb as 20lb has been bitten through!. As for hooks, a couple of 2/0's or 3/0's depending on size of bait.
The Kingfish(Narrow-barred Spanish Mackerel) and also Barracudas have a mean set of teeth, both are present here and can be caught from the shore.
Also many of the other species encountered will make short work of mono.


Good luck.

I will be in Dubai March 14-19 and would like to fish one whole day or two half days. I am interested in GT but if the odds are better for other species my mind can be changed. I will need to recruit one or two people to join me and keep the costs down. Send me a pm if interested and we can exchange email
