Yes you actually do need one. They started checking before it got hot when I slowed down on fishing (scuba diving now). If u go to their website, the fines are not worth it. It moved as well. Spent a whole day looking for it to find out it was moved and the website was still wrong. It's at the chamber of Commerce on the corniche. It's 120aed for the year or u can buy for shorter time. There is not much fish now. I'm pretty sure I know seeing how I scuba every weekend. The majority are deeper water over 10m down. I have a few spots where I saved the gps location. Guaranteed to catch big sherry, hamour(big!), and few others. Anyways, good luck!!
I'm new on the site and also looking to hook up with someone for some fishing fun. Not scared to pay my part of the fun, nothing is for free.
Are you going out for fishing in the summer as well, I heard the water is too warm or do you have some spots where the water is cold ?

Went to Aryam this weekend. We did a overnight/daytime trip. 3 guys with our families. We caught around 30 fish with maybe 15 being keepers. The others were some poison fish and 1 puffer fish. Daughter caught a young hamour as well.
May try Mussafah bridge or Al Bateen area tonight. Wish me luck!
I WENT TO ARYAM WITH A COUPLE OF BUDDIES TODAY MORNING AROUND 6AM TO 10AM AND CAUGHT AROUND 45 MEDIUM SIZE FISH USING SQUID STRIPS.MEANWHILE I KEPT ONE ROD RIGGED WITH NEEDLEFISH HOPING TO CATCH SOMETHING LARGE,IT WAS UNTOUCHED.
IT COULD HAVE BEEN THE BAIT OR MAYBE THE RIG ITSELF THAT WENT WRONG.I WAS WONDERING IF YOU COULD ADVICE ME WITH THE PROPER RIG SUITED FOR ARYAM TO CATCH HAMOUR OR SOME OTHER BIG ONES.
ALSO THE DIFF KINDS OF RIGS WE CAN USE FOR ALL SIZE FISH.WITH ILLUSTRATIONS IF POSSIBLE.
It's bit far from Dubai and I don't think its worth. anyway I will explain. from Dubai just follow Abu Dhabi root, before Abu dhabi you have to turn right and follow Mussafah area. I will put the exact coordinates.
I was planning to go early morning there..Im leaving around 3 am so that Ill be there at 4 am. Is there people already by that time? Thank you so much.. Aprreciated if you can give me a map as I'm a poor boy in terms of abu dhabi road... email@example.com
Is your needlefish is alive? I was there also this sat morning, catch a lot of medium fish but no luck for Kingfish.. No bites for fish bait.. You should use wire line for that Rig with 2 hooks.. Ordinary hook and treble hook (3 hooks ). treble hook should be tie on the end of the line.
Is there anyone who can tell which side of aryam we can catch Kingfish, queen?? From 6 am to 10am my fish bait haven't touch at all..:sick:
Hi Guys - It seems Fishing prohibited in beside Mussafah bridge. Last week I went there and saw they covered net over the shore and put a Red Flag near. I couldn’t see anyone fishing. Please clarify fishing prohibited during Ramadan time?
And update more details for any fishing spots apart from Mussafah bridge.
Went to Aryam today.... Pretty sad. Is it me or is Abu Dhabi doing way too much construction? It seems that everything is being blocked off which is only allowing us recreational fisherman to fish in the same spots. Well Aryam is now dead. Its a great spot to camp, but for fishing..... Well.. The water is really dirty now. I set out 4 Crab Traps. Not 1 crab today and 2 days ago. Usually I would feel nibbles from the little bait fish. Nothing. The bait stayed on the hook the whole time. No nibble. I changed bait several times and nothing. Even left a shrimp on second pole for 3 hours. Brought it back in and it wasn't even touched. Pretty sad. Also they seemed to close the access road to the lagoon area where the flamingos hang out. They put a pile of sand and rocks across the road. Time to venture off and find a new spot.
I heard about al aryam here so we decided to go for the first time for overnight. We didnt catch anything & the place was nt comfortable, lot of flies & dirty yeah. My 2.5 years old daughter at the beginning was very happy playing on the shore but at the end of the day she got lots of wounds cuz of the water was nt clean plus the flies! She even kept repeating ( water No ... water No)
Could anyone suggest nice place for camping & fishing.
Hello every body,
Im new here not only to the forum but the whole thing.
I have always loved fishing but i didnt get the chance before to do it.
Now i have decided to go fishing and i bought a rod with its things but i hhh dont have a clue about any thing.
So i was wondering if any body or a group would like to have a new addition or a fishing companion (newbie) that would be fantastic im a fast learner and im in abu dhabi just drop me an email and we could arrange something.
Thank you in advance
Hello guys, I usually fish on the bridge connecting abudhabi island to marina mall, the place near leboulanger, it's a very good spot. But, I want to learn fishing squids I have the lure for it and many people get a squid. Please help me.
