March, April and May (3rd, 4th, 5th) are the best spring months for all fish species, especially for hunting big Bluefin tuna, trolling for little tunnies, jigging for Common sea breams and Greater amberjacks.”, says our Captain.

June (6th) is the best month for fishing small and medium sized tuna with the popping method and other techniques. It is also o good time for jigging for Common seabreams and some other fish species.”

The Bluefin tuna is the most attractive fish, as tunas are present in large numbers over the whole year and they weigh up to 500 kilograms.

It is important to add that tuna is not the only one of interesting species for big game fishing in the Adriatic Sea. The Greater amberjack is a popular fish hunted with jigging technique from the beginning of the year until spring (20th of March).

The month of April is right for little tunas moving in shoals and with an average weight of 10-15 kg. This period offers great possibilities for a rich catch. The end of May and beginning of June its shark hunting season (blue sharks and thresher sharks). The tunas follow great albacore tuna shoals with an average weight of 10-15 kg; lately, with the sea temperature rising, more and more dorados can be found. That’s at the same time the best fishing season (from August to November), where the chances for a big catch is very high! Of course, it should be mentioned that the fishing seasons mostly depend on the sea temperature, the concentration of small blue fish and the salinity (depending on rainfall and inflow of sweet water).

July, August, September, October and November (7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th) is the best time for hunting great tunas, sharks, swordfish, big mahi-mahi fish, albacore tuna, Common dentex and other fish.
