Hey Guys, glad to see the kayak fishing community is growing.
A company i work for host kayak fishing competitions every now and then, we have one coming up in April.
If some of you are interested just check us out on Facebook: SeaYou Dubai
If you guys are also looking for fishing kayaks and accessories for your kayak check out www.seayou.ae
Happy to help if you have any questions
I would love to have some company while kayak fishing especially that I've never tried in Dubai and don't know where it's allowed or not and if I do need a license or not.
I need also some guidance and tips about the lures and when and where to use each.
I used to kayak fishing in Sharjah open sea but don't want to waste more time there now that I got a new Mirage Sport and would love to try it in Dubai.
My number is 0529289894. Let's whatsapp.
Some questions, will I need a license to kayak fish in Dubai?
how is it at the black palace beach? is it rough water and high waves even if it's little windy? You know kayaking with waves is not fun especially when fishing.
What lures do you suggest to use? do you jig or troll? do you use live baits such as shrimps and sardines?
Any info you may provide would be of great help to me and others reading here.
I also just started kayak fishing
Seems not so active at this moment
But hope we can enjoy together
I may go to al bateen and mussafah for fishing on early morning or late afternoon of weekends and weekday also during ramadan
Quick question. Can i use eastern mangrove dock? I believe that fishing is not allowed but just kayaking with my own
Hope to meet you guys.
Are you guys having any luck in summer, the queenfish and kingfish seem to have disappeared?
Saw some porpoises the other day, not sure if it's a good or bad sign?
Heard about a lot of Tuna and dolphin fish being around in Fujeirah and Abu Dhabi.
Have any of you caught tuna of your kayak in Dubai?

As far as i know, in Dubai for kayaks its considered to be inshore fishing and you need to apply through the dubai municipality website.
You fill in your details and upload your documents, once your license is ready they will send you an email and you go pick it up.
Simple as that.
Hi Muhammad Roshin,
When you buy a new kayak I would highly recommend to buy a pedal drive kayak for fishing. It makes fishing a lot more enjoyable when you have your hands free.
Check out the video about the kayak we use here: https://youtu.be/0GD-GXm1XXA
You might not be able to buy the same kayak in the UAE, but perhaps something similar.
If you use a pedal drive kayak you also don't really need an anchor. Especially if you're planning on lure fishing.
I would however suggest to add a fish finder. Either install a small fish finder like a Lowrance 4x for example or you can use a portable fish finder such as a Deeper Pro, we also made a review video about our Deeper here: https://youtu.be/ZQOCBNBl3B4
Then you need a few more essentials. A life jacket of course, perhaps a VHF for safety, high vis clothing if there's lot's of boat traffic and I would recommend to use light tackle for fishing off a kayak.
In terms of reels I really like the Penn Spinfisher 3500 reel or the Penn Slammer 3500. They are waterproof and this is invaluable when kayak fishing. That means you don't need to service them after each session.
Let me know if you have any more questions.
