We started Fishfishme.com on 2012 and went live on 2013. Since 2013 we were helping people to go fishing all around the world. During this time we get very close with our charter partners and customers, especially in UAE. We heard our customers feedback on captains, good and bad. We gathered this information in our system and came up with a list of the top5 fishing charters in UAE based on our customer reviews.
Two weeks ago we started a new campaign to increase the awareness about fish legal sizes and overfishing in Dubai and UAE. We created stickers that will be placed in all of our boat partners to make it easier for people to check the size of the fish and wither they should keep it or return it.
Rods form circles in front of the room, right behind the glass windows. Butts on the floor while tips are in the air. The rods are huddled together by “height.” Some up to ten feet long. Each huddle categorizes the rod’s purpose: light tackle, jigging rods, popping, casting, spinning, trolling rods. In the middle of the room, a customer lingers on an item and calls out to the man behind the counter. Counter guy answered him. Customer then took the item and went to pay, chatting while he does, “You think the weather is good?” asked Mr. Customer. In fishing, the weather is a legitimate subject, not an awkward conversation. “Still good. Try going to The Palm, within branches. We caught some huge ones there the last time,” said counter guy. Mr. Customer smiled, said his goodbyes and left. For the next few minutes, the shop was empty except for me, Marvin – counter guy, Arlyn – his colleague, and shelf after shelf of fishing gears – a wide selection of rods, reels, baits, lures, jigs, rigs, and other paraphernalia. I call it a shop. Marvin and Arlyn call it the showroom, and for good reason.
We have scheduled a series of fishing trips during January and February 2015, organized and sponsored by the “Fishfishme” team. These are going to be “Shared trips”, which means that we reserve a boat and any one interested can join, on a first come first served basis up to the maximum boat capacity. The trips will be weekly, on weekends (Friday or Saturday), and it will cover almost all the fishing spots all over the UAE, and it is up to you, if you wanna join one or two or ALL of them, it is up to your passion!
Planning to go Fishing in Sicily, then this article should help you with that. Captain Andrea is one of our favorite fishing guides in Italy. He is a passionate fisherman, great photographer, awesome video maker and a funny guy. He is the go to person if you are planning to go fishing in Sicily, Italy (read Sicily Fishing Guide).

He loves shore fishing, but he does both shore and off-shore when he has the chance.
In a city like Dubai, people are always busy, mostly with work. How often you spend quality time with your family and kids? Even if you allocate good time every week to spend with your kids, most often you are distracted with your mobile with email and whatsapp notifications!
Like so many people who grew up near the coast, Capt. Borja couldn’t resist the call of the sea. So after 12 years of working on land, he finally decided to become a seafarer, and eventually a charter operator.
Capt. Borja shares with us life on board a commercial fishing vessel and the perks of living in Basque Country.
Like most men his age, he has a day job. But unlike most men his age who love fishing, he doesn’t have to wait for the holidays to use his tackle. Neither did he wait for retirement to get his own boat. That’s the beauty of having your own charter. And he takes full advantage by sharing the fun to others, even a few fish tales which he shares below.
