5 Types of fishing in the Maldives - Patience is virtue

Fishing is an elegant art form that you can take upon when you are on a holiday in the Maldives and here are the types of fishing you can get up to here.


Big game fishing in the Maldives

Big game fishing is a huge business in the Maldives and it is the ultimate experience that will have you heading out the open seas. The warm waters of the Indian Ocean are an amazing attraction for yellowfin, tuna, Barracuda and so much more. All you need is the correct kind of gear and a good guide for you to have the best kind of fishing trip on your Maldives holiday. If you are put up at a Maldives beach resort the likes of Adaaran Select Hudhuranfushi, you will be happy to know that the water around your island resort is rich and full of marine creatures too.


Line fishing

Line fishing is yet another popular fishing activity the Maldivians love to do. This is also embraced completely in the country because the people of the Maldives are hell-bent on preserving the seas and their livelihood through eco-friendly fishing methods. Line fishing is an eco-friendly fishing method that has been in practice for centuries and is also one of the most rewarding ways to fish. Nothing beats the joy of your line snagging as a fish is caught on the other end. Most line fishing excursions in the Maldives end with barbeques on an isolated island with the crew and guide.


Full day fishing tours in the Maldives

If you want to go fishing as a professional and would love to spend more than just a couple of hours out in the ocean waiting for a fish to click on your bait, then this is for you. You can set sail on a luxury boat to an area out in the open seas where the fish will literally fly into your boat. The water in these areas are full of marine life and you can enjoy the bounty of the ocean every 5 minutes or more. The remote areas around the islands are the most sought after because the waters are not overfished here and you have plenty of opportunities to enjoy fishing.


Casting fishing in the Maldives

Casting fishing also has a lot of fans in the Maldives. Casting fishing excursions will take you close to the fishing locations and they are usually in the deep waters or flatbeds close to the islands. The kind of fish you will be able to catch on this trip are trevally, bonefish and titan trigger. Depending on your policy you can do what you want with the fish you catch, but the practice in these waters is to catch the fish and then release it.


Fishing with the local fishermen

For a completely authentic fishing experience and expedition, you must head over to one of the local islands and you can hire a traditional dhoni and set out to the sea with the Maldivian fishermen.
