Home    Sports    Land & Air Sports    Fishing

Along the coast and offshore, apart from the summer months, the Arabian Gulf and Gulf of Oman waters are full of edible fish like king fish, tuna, barracuda, red snapper, hamour and even sail fish, sharks and the not so edible rays.

The coastline on both shores provide good beach and surf fishing.  In Sharjah city, the breakwaters all along the sea front are recommended areas.  On the East Coast just pick your spot and wait patiently for the nibble.

Anglers are not permitted to fish in the Khaled Lagoon.

Bait can be purchased from the Fish Souk.  Rods and tackle are on sale in GECO Marine, Sun & Sand Sports Store and shops in the area along the corniche, between Al Majarra Souk and the Sharjah Continental Hotel.  Berthing is available at the Marbella Resort (members only).

There are a number of companies who organize deep sea fishing.

Contact: Mr. Anil Shankaran at the Oceanic Hotel, Khor Fakkan for the daily sunset fishing trip (09 2385111).
