Hi Roland, thanks bro. the place I cought this bad boy was in the palm Jumierah.
but u need access to the go there. I will try the open beach in Jumierah beside the Burj Al Arab. i think it will be better since you have a deep water and open sea. not like the palm as its closed with 15 ton of water break stones!
Dear fellow anglers, you will need a fishing license from Dubai Municipality Its free to issue and to apply go online www.dm.gov.ae register your name then go to user permits , environmental, recreational fishing license, then upload your documents and wait for approval. PS. You need to have a tenancy contract with your name in Dubai.
Well in Palm Jumeirah I catched some nice fish, but i always had to deal with security, so you won't be able to fish in peace unless you have a villa in the palm with open sea in front. I would said ghantoot as well but for the past year i didn't catch any big fish. Umm suqeim is not bad as well (behind burj al arab. After all, the best for fishing in dubai is by boat, it's a sure catch... Ciao
hi Samr, as you said that this Dubai fishing license is free, just register... does it include non residence of Dubai but got residence of other GCC? Fishing is my hobby and i would like to do some fishing in Dubai... better yet with a license. Happy New Year!!! My fellow angler...
@ Keyur : just for the fresh meat @ Majid : yeah I have the same problem they even come by boat and catch you I have never tried umsuqeim or burj al Arab area yet,, I believe both will be great since you have the open sea,, long cast and maybe you can get a shark !! Totally agree with you the boat fishing is nice,, but personally I prefer the surf fishing is more challenge and fun @ Roland : I don’t think so,, I have heard two stories a friend of mine is living in Sharjah (no license for him) another one live with his father in law and the tenancy contract is not in his name so no license for him Nevertheless, you should ask Dubai Municipality they should know better. Here is the customer service phone number 00971(04) 6066822
hi Sam, thanks ... much more they will not agree in my case. I just hope someone will come up with an idea of making available those fishing license for those none residence by issuing temporary license , lets say , 14 days for 20 dhs. and can be bought at the petrol station with all those instruction.. just like in the in some state in the US. Got any latest pics of your catch...
We have a few fish that will look like this one and all are normally found in rocky gullies. Most will gladly take pilchards but some are dedicated shellfish eaters and one can try prawn and various shellfish baits found on the rocks at low tide.
We also have a super fast fish known for its strength and fight ability called the "steam train" or muscle cracker in normal terms.
Well done and please feel free to do it again, and again, etc.
How long did it take for DM to release your license. I got my application approved but they have not released the license card yet, it's been 4 months now. I visited abu hail center and they told me to just print out my approved application form and I this will do for the meantime.
Anyhow, I think Im stuck in Umm suqiem beach (along sand bags) need to find new fishing spots along the beach. any suggestions?
