Dubai Fishing Trips: Where To Fish?
Most common deep sea fishing trips occur about 16-18 miles away from shore.
Thats is where the biggest fish are caught and its worth the bumpy ride there and back.
Depending on the time of year we may fish closer or farther to shore, also depending on the movement of the fish and the seagull behaviour aswell as just a general awareness possessed by our experienced fishing captains.
