So we decided to give away 10 fishing trips every month for 10 winners. To participate in the competition you need to do something simple, change your Facebook profile photo to Fishfishme mascot (his name is Richard the Fish by the way).
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!

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.

He is one of the most prolific charter captains in Muscat, an excellent fisherman with excellent people skills. He’s such warm person, you can feel his enthusiasm oozing from the phone. There are captains who thrive in fishing but fails to connect with the anglers. This one can be terribly sweet to the people on board. He keeps you entertained, attends your needs, and teaches you how to work the rod and reel. He has the balance of guiding you and letting you do your own thing.
The goatee and tattoo screams “I’m rebellious.” The shaved head, sun-kissed tan, and penchant for fatigue short gives off a marine vibe.

Have you ever wondered why they are called Sailfish? Well, many of you must have guessed it right. Yes, they are named after their spectacular sail-like cobalt blue colored dorsal fin that extends almost to the full length of their bodies and when stretched out it is taller than the width of the body. Talking further about their appearance the Sailfish have a distinctively rounded bill which is actually an extended upper jaw. The elongated body is usually silvery blue in color with brown spots on the belly.
When I hear fishing all I can think of is the thrill and the fun at sea trying to catch a good fish. And I am sure that most of you can relate to that picture. The thing that we do not realize is that the oceans on earth are getting depleted of these wonderful creatures.
