Fishing is even more fun with us

Patrick Baier
Patrick Baier Owner / Skipper
has spent at least 8 weeks of the year in Croatia since he was a child. Even as a child he fished with local fishermen and thereby learned about traditional Croatian fishing, such as night fishing for lignje (squid), parangal (longline), panula (live bait trolling) and nocturnal spearfishing..
IThen, in 1998, he bought his first boat. After demonstrating initial success in the big game fishing on that boat, in 2003 he upped his game even further and purchased a bigger boat. Since then he has devoted himself exclusively to big game fishing for bluefin tuna, swordfish and shark. Patrick Baier has a skipper license for the open sea and all the necessary licenses for bluefin, swordfish, amberjack and albacore. Blue and thresher sharks are protected and released when caught.
The magazine Kroati.de says: "Patrick Baier is an indispensable part of the Croatian big game fishing scene."

Our service

What we offer

We have 4 big game boats at the base in Zadar and 1 boat in Sibenik.

We offer full-charter, big game fishing tours for bluefin, swordfish, amberjack, dentex, leerfish, dolphin fish (mahi-mahi), false albacore (little tunny). Our fishing techniques are: drifting, popping, jigging, slow jigging, bottom fishing, trolling as well as traditional live bait fishing for amberjack and dentex depending on the season.

We are fully equipped with tackle, guests do not need to bring their own equipment. The charter price includes the cost of the crew, diesel, fishing licenses and soft drinks. We have a limit for bluefin and can catch one specimen with more than 30 kg per trip, thereafter we "catch and release" or "tag and release".

The best months to fish for bluefin and swordfish are July to October. Bluefins then have an average weight of 50 kg. But there are some fish underway weighing more than 100 kg. The rule on board with us is safety first. The catch remains the possession of the boat.

If you have any questions or suggestions, just send us an e-mail. You can reach us at 0049-1788069669 during the season.
