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.

Have you ever wondered why they are called Sailfish? Well, many of you must have guessed it right.

Overfishing

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.

Since many of us are not fully aware of what overfishing is, what are the reasons that lead to overfishing and its impacts on the ecosystem; we are going to tell you what exactly is happening around the world.

An interview with Captain Joan Alum of

Wild, that’s probably one way to describe him. Quite appropriate as well since he lived most of his life in the Spanish “wild coast”, literally translated as Costa Brava – a 160 km coastline from the town of Blanes (sixty minutes north of Barcelona) to the French border. This is rugged land, rocky hills and green mountains rising from golden beaches – yet another reason why we oh so love the Mediterranean.
