Fishing


Mediterranean vacation ― not just sunbathing and excursions. Fishing on Crete appeals to both professionals and to those who takes a fishing rod for the first time.



Features of Cretan fisheries


Several methods are practiced on the island. Locals are often fishing from the shore, however water is clear, fish is careful and it is difficult to catch it. Mullet, bream, sea bass and a dozen other local species are caught this way.


The most promising catching method - from the boat. To try one of the best fishing in Mediterranean, rent a yacht and head out to sea. Fishing from a boat is almost a 100% guarantee of the catch, although it will most likely be small. The season lasts from June to August.

The most usual bait is shrimp.


Trolling is considered a real adventure. Fishing from a moving vessel captures more space and increases the chances of capturing trophies. Trolling ― lottery, you can return with nothing or catch something massive. Experienced fishermen talk about the caught 21 kg tuna.
