Hi Glen!

There was ideal conditions - 2 days before new moon, sunrise, top of tide, good position. Take up to 30 minutes, not more.

I haven't been back there for about 4yrs but know that it can be fairly easy to catch squid, specially if you have access to a boat and a good lantern at night. It's just a matter of finding them and then it's on.

Hi Ivan!

You're right, when all conditions are ok, you can catch much of them.

Pozdrav ;)

Great catch Zex, i had a friend just return from Crna Gora (Montenegro) and said the squidding there is just as good, not many people know about it down there either which is good for those very few that do!

First, the squid was caught my son:) I am proud of him. These three in the picture were a total of one kilogram.
Here is squidding mass, we are catching them a lot and in many ways.
Montenegro is the difference, there is a lot more fish than here. For this reason they are not interested in squid.

Happy 2010 to all!

Hey Zex. I find myself in Prague in the Czech republic quite a lot. By my reckoning, Croatia and the sea is about 13 hours driving, which makes it about in range. As well as the squid, what other fishing do you have out there? It was a suprise seeing the bass. Is there good bass fishing? What are the main targets for shore based anglers in Croatia?

Hello fishyrob. There are lots of positions for fishing off the coast of Croatia. I only hunt from a boat, so I do not know exactly where the best position to shore anglers, but I see them everywhere.
You have to buy a license (sold at any tourist office) and also look at the number of sticks (three) and hook into them (also the most three). Limit to catch a 5 kg per day. Respect for the police to control common.
There are lots of different fish, bass and also come and try.

Bye

Thanks Zex. Excellent information
I think I might. I am out in Czech in July for a canoe trip. I might just extend it by a week and come and have a poke around. Only problem is its my busiest time in the UK. What would you say is generally the best time of year for fishing around Croatian shores?
Dobar

Hi fishyrob
Fishing season here is all year, but different fish have different seasons.
When you decide when to come i will tell you what fish is in that time.

Hi Both,

I'm due for a couple of days in Croatia next week (25th of June to the 5th of July 2010) - can you recommend anywhere to visit for fishing? I'm especially interested in landing some squid - the bigger the better! Is it squid season at the moment? I can get access to a boat - does fishing from a boat for squid in croatia require any paperwork at all?

Thanks for your help! Can't wait to land a delicious squid!

Matt Gamchester

P.S. Can you recommend any airline to fly back to the UK with? I've seen these guys, netjets, advertised on several newspapers, but not really sure how much they charge?

Hi Matt-Gamchester

Squid season is not now in Croatia. Best time for squidding here is from november to february.
In this moment you can fishing, from boat (rent is cheap, about 50 euro for small boat per day).
About paperwork, you must have fishing licence (about 20 euro per 3 day or 40 per 7 day). For boat you must have driving licence for any boat longer than 3 m. All international licences are valid.

Where exactly you go? What city? I can recomend some hotspots to you.

Hi Zex,

Thanks for the response. I'm flying into Split and then renting a car. Haven't got any plans on where to go yet but want to get away from the crowds and just spend some nice quiet time. Have been to Krk before and thought it was lovely, but had to leave before I got to do any fishing.

That's a shame about the squid. I guess there's other fishing to be had though? Where would you recommend visiting? I'd like to spend a couple of nights in a nice quiet town or village with good fishing then spend the rest camping somewhere.

Thanks for your help!

Matt
