What you'll do

I will pick you up at your accommodation 45 minutes before sunrise (exact hour depends on the season) and take you to the fishing location (hint: beautiful beach on hidden coastal place) where we statistically (based on 15 years fishing) have the biggest chance to catch a fish. We'll enjoy first morning coffee watching the sunrise and I will introduce you with the equipment and its prepairment for fishing. Then we'll throw our baits along with our hope in the Adriatic! In practice, you will learn how to tie a hook, prepare the bait, use the fishing rod and how to recognize which sort of fish ate your bait. I will share with you some interesting tricks but the biggest of them all is - hope and enthusiasm. Luckily, if we don't catch our dinner, we will find comfort in swimming in the crystal clear sea away from the tourist crowds! If we do catch, it is all yours to enjoy it, but I have to tell you - once you eat what you've catched with your own skills and knowledge, expect an unfortunate side effect of becoming a lifetime fisherman.

Hi everyone! I'm Vjekoslav Tvrdić [26], mechanical engineer and teaching assistant at Split University, where I've gained teaching skills that I'd be happy to show you in fishing. I am a passionate fisherman since childhood times, excited to share my knowledge in fishing, Adriatic sea and Split city with you! If you are looking to add up on your skills list, experience something off the beaten track and finally figure out how the fishermen are not really just sitting by the water waiting for the fish - join me in this adventure! And of course, if you catch, it's your dinner!

I booked this fishing trip for me and my girlfriend and we had so much fun. Time went by so fast for us and the host. Vjeko was really nice and made us feel comfortable from start to finish. We caught alot of fish and had some good conversations. On the way back Vjeko showed us some spots to visit and bought us icecream. Thank you Vjekoslav!

We had such an amazing time with Vijeko! He knows everything about fishing, (especially about Oradas ;-) ) and you can see that he goes fishing with all his heart. We really enjoyed his friendliness and had so much fun together, at a little secret place that tourists would never find. The trip is definitely worth the money - big recommendation :)

Die Fishing-tour mit Vjekoslav ist sehr unterhaltsam, interessant und empfehlenswert. Mein Mann und Sohn wurden von Vjekoslav mit Frühstück, Getränken und abschließendem Eis versorgt und waren begeistert von seiner Freundlichkeit und den vielen neuen Tipps und Informationen zum Fischen im Meer. Sehr empfehlenswert für Anfänger und Profis!!

I booked this fishing experience for my father-in-law and he loved it. Vjekoslav was informative and easy to communicate with. He picked up my father-in-law outside our Airbnb property and took him to an amazing locations. Quiet, beautiful and peaceful but also comfortable and had shade protection from the sun. Vjekoslav provided all the equipment and brought food and drink. My father-in-law commented that Vjekoslav was really nice and friendly, very informative and made good conversation during the activity.

Vjeko is a fantastic host and guide. He is very knowledgeable about the fishing in the Split area and very friendly and easy to get along with. The experience felt like a fishing trip between friends. I already have some fishing experience but not in sea fishing and the species that Vjeko does, so we were able to discuss the similarities between our methods, baits and species. During the fishing session we also discussed all sorts of topics of our daily lives and it was really nice to get a local's perspective of Croatia. After fishing and on the way back to my apartment, Vjeko also gave me a nice mini tour of some outer areas of Split centre including tips for beaches and restaurants. I would recommend Vjeko and this experience to anyone, no matter what their fishing background.
