You are probably wondering what you are likely to catch during your fishing trip, the ‘staple’ of the catch while in Dubai – grouper, barracuda, king fish, sheri, and if you are lucky some travelli.

Please note, during a fishing tour dubai – it is very important to protect yourself from the sun. and constantly hydrate yourself.
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.
The best time to go deep sea fishing in Dubai is early morning, starting off around 6 AM. In the winter months (Jan-Mar) there is quite a decent catch in the afternoon slot (2-6pm) aswell.
These are the 2 slots during which we run our Dubai fishing trips.
Undeniably, the best time of the year to fish in Dubai is January until May, with the January to March subset being a highlight within that season.
The fishing season in Dubai generally lasts from November until May.
There are different fluctuations across different seasons, but different fish are more likely to be caught in different months.
For example January & February has an increase chances of catching Cobia.
April & May has an increased chance of catching Tuna.
Barracuda, Queen & King Fish
These 3 are the staple larger fish catch in the UAE and is something that can be consistently relied on. Normally, the season for this type of fish is between November & May.
Trevally, Cobia & Tuna Bonita
These 3 types are somewhat common but more rare than the 2 above and are usually only caught between January & May.
Cobia is pretty much only seen in January, February & March.
Sherri (Emperor Bream)
This is one of the most common types of fish in the UAE and is pretty much all year around with bottom fishing. Usually quite small.
Sultan Ibrahim (Goat Fish/Red Mullet)
Another very common fish type which is caught all year around and can be considered a part of the local staple diet. Rather small but delicious fish.
Hamour is a very popular local fish but is more rare than the sherri or sultan Ibrahim. Its also bigger and arguable tastier with less bones and more fillet.
Jas & Mackarel
These 2 types of fish are much less common but none the less sufficiently common to get a mention and are often caught.
Bait & Useful Items
The most common & effective bait used in the UAE for bottom fishing is squid & small shrimp.
Naturally for trolling, the best kind of bait to use is ‘rapala’, an artificial fish mock-up.
