The exquisite city of Salalah is the capital of the Omani Southern province of Dhofar. This second largest city of the Sultanate of Oman is lined by the Arabian Sea on its southern border. The Salalah Bay is located in the southeast-facing coast of the Arabian Peninsula. Than any other point in the Arabian coast, the sea reaches the closest to the shoreline here in the Salalah Bay. The fishing grounds here are unspoiled and unplundered owing to the strict rules that governed this area for a long time. With the change in these governing laws, fishing is gaining popularity in the Bay of Salalah. The pristine conditions for fishing, picturesque locations and a lovely climate makes Salalah a preferred holiday spot.
The Weather and Fishing
The general weather conditions in Salalah is comparatively cooler than that of the northern and the inland places of Oman that have a hot desert like weather. However, the monsoon months of July and August see a cloudy weather here. With very little rainfall though the skies remain cloud studded and foggy making it difficult to wade through the sea, thus making it an unsuitable time for fishing.
The rest of the year, mostly seven calendar months starting from mid October are considered a good time for indulging in gamefishing. The huge floating structures like tankers and ships at the Salalah port attract a lot of bait fish. These bait fish lure in the big bad boys like the Sailfish, Marlin, Dorado, Yellowfin Tuna, Giant Trevally, Amberjack, King Mackerel to name a few.
