Vacation in the Maldives is never complete without participating in a fishing trip. Trips are organized in almost all the resorts and hotels of the Maldives either in the morning or in the afternoon.
Traditional hand line fishing can be done using line, weight, hook and the bait. It is very simple to catch fish in Maldives. We don’t need to be an expert. All we need to do is put the bait in the hook, drop the line and let go until it reaches the bottom of the sea. Once it reaches the bottom pull up the line a little bit about a feet to avoid touching the corals. Now it’s time to wait for the bite and wonder at the stars in the sky. This method of fishing is also known as bottom fishing or Night fishing. It is a common practice in all the resorts of the Maldives that the catch is cooked for the fishermen. Snappers and groupers are more commonly caught.
If you are keen fisherman the best way to experience a fishing holiday in Maldives is on a custom made boat specially built for the seas of Maldives. Combination of a boat and a local island guesthouse for accommodation is an ideal package for a fishing holiday package in Maldives if on a budget.
