Fishing in Fujairah

Fujairah on the East Coast of the United Arab Emirates is a very different location to the West Coast. The Gulf of Oman and Indian Ocean is deep up to 2000m and has huge drop offs and good current. Fujairah is the second biggest ship anchorage in the World and can have anything up to 180 tankers. This provides a lot of structure that attracts baitfish and in turn attracts large numbers of Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, Tuna etc.

Fujairah is lucky as there is a range of species to target from the inshore kingfish and queenfish to the offshore yellowfin tuna, marlin and sailfish to the deep wrecks and drop offs for amberjack, grouper, snapper and many more. Off Fujairah we offer a range of fishing techniques from fly fishing, spinning, jigging, popping and big game.

Fujairah we offer a range of trips from fly fishing trips around the ships for mahi mahi and sailfish to jigging trips around the wrecks and drop offs to offshore trolling trips for marlin, sailfish and tuna and then we will also be offering long range tuna trips, targeting monster yellowfin up to 100 miles offshore. We have built a purpose fit 37ft Emirates Boat with twin Yamaha V8 350hp outboards, Raymarine Twin 12” screens with radar and through hull 3KW transducer that reads to 5,000ft. A true fishing machine!
