Adriatic Big Game adventure with Megabite ship

If you crave a true adrenaline rush, the spirit of the sea and a fight with huge fish in the open sea, then come fishing in the middle Adriatic with the the experienced crew of the ship Megabite and her skipper Igor Zdenjak. Adrenaline packed fishing trips are our everyday life, and with us you can add this fishing adrenaline spice to your perfect, idyllic Croatian holiday. As well as the fishing, there is much beauty to be enjoyed while sailing the seas of middle Dalmatia and its many islands, islets and rocks with their untouched nature, crystal clear water and innumerable unnamed beach coves ideal for quiet relaxation.

What is a fishing day like?

Each morning we leave Zadar port at 9. The fishing starts following a 1 1/2 hour sail and continues late into the evening. If you wish, we may make a lunch break and/or a swimming break at a beach that can only be reached by boat. Open sea fishing can be difficult due to large waves or strong wind, but this is all part of the adventure that you will be sharing with the crew. Depending on the season, several fishing techniques can be used in a day and you may partake in as few or as many as you like. Good suggestions, perhaps born of experience, are always welcome. All fishing equipment is provided but if you prefer to use your own gear, which must be adequate, you may do so, with prior agreement with the skipper.

What are the fish and the fishing like?

The fishing season on the waters around Zadar lasts from the beginning of April until the end of December. At the start of the season we troll the open sea for little tuna, use flapper paternoster rigs from the anchored ship as well as the very popular vertical jigging over reefs. These techniques successfully catch amberjack, dentex, grouper, John Dory, forkbeard and several species of blue fish like mackerel, horse mackerel and bonito.

June 15th is the beginning of the big game fishing season, when we go after large predators in the deep seas. The blue fin tuna is the main target, together with the swordfish and several species of sharks. Big game fishing is very successful throughout its season, which ends on October15th , with August and September being the best time for giant tuna, when specimens over 200kg are caught. We fish for tuna, swordfish and sharks using drifting and trolling techniques.


From October until the end of the year the dentex and the amerjack are the main targets. During this time night squid fishing can also be arranged. Three-day trips to the open sea of island Jabuka can be organized between April 1st and July 1st.

About the ship

The Megabite is an Albin 31 fishing boat, with 3.85m hull width and 10.5m length. It is equipped for any fishing technique, with outriggers, a radar, an ultrasound depth/fish finder, a GPS device and a VHS station. Powered by two Yanmar 315kW engines, the ship also has four beds, a deck lounge, a kitchen, a TV and a radio.

Just to add, Igor Zdenjak skipper of the ship is one of the best amateur chefs in Croatia, and he can cook some of his cooking specialties for you at the boat.

A group of 7 of us are coming to Split on May 2 and would like to go big game fishing. Can you recommend someone to take us out on one or two boats? We would like to use a crew that are very good and will give us a high amount of success to catch fish. Thank you.
