Maldives has plenty of fishes, big game-fish and heavy fighters: from omnipresent barracudas to powerful giant trevally, from spectacular sailfish to yellow-fin and dogtooth tunas, and more: wahoo, red snappers, dorados and rainbow runners.
The main species that can be caught inside the atoll are triggerfish, snapper, giant trevally, blue fins trevally and yellow fins with the occasional barracuda, bonefish, jacks. The area near to the coral reef produces a multitude of snapper, robalo, green jobfish, giant trevally and an abundance of blue fin jacks.


There are two seasons in the Maldives, and each season offers a variety of fishing due to changes in currents, visibility in the water temperature and plankton movement. However, due to the onset of climate change the seasons are becoming less predictable.

NORTH EAST MONSOON (January – April)

From December the currents start to flow from east to west through the atolls. Water clarity improves to 30m on the eastern side of the atolls and a variety of fish gather there. The flow strengthens in February, but the surface water is calmer. The water temperature rises to 30 degrees and the billfish often hunt a little deeper. These conditions remain quiet until March / April until the onset of the SW monsoon in May. The underwater visibility in the west of the atolls during this time is usually 10 to 15 meters.


In the SW monsoon season there is a good chance for Yellowfin tuna fishing on the western side of the atolls. The flow is usually less severe and the visibility is good. The water temperatures drop slightly, which means that the fish are closer to the atoll drop-off. During the southwest monsoon the eastern side of the atolls can also see good Yellowfin conditions – although further offshore (about 10 to 20 km from the atolls). Overall weather conditions can be unpredictable (often winds and heavy rain for a period of 3-4 days), however there can be a large variety of fish on offer, reef fish such as grouper, snapper, barracuda, Giant Trevally etc. can be caught all year-round.


When preparing for a fishing adventure in the Maldives (or any other similar destination) you will need 2 or 3 fishing rods and reels. Of course, if you have the opportunity to bring more different fishing rods, reels and accessories in order to be able to handle different situations and species of fish, it will be just an additional advantage. If you do not want however, to be uselessly wasteful – you need to bring at least one fishing rod and reel for popping and another one for jigging. These are basically the two main techniques you will have to handle. If you plan to troll, it’ll be a good idea to have one or more fishing rods, designed for this purpose.
When you travel and you have your own equipment, we would like to mention here that QATAR AIRLINES and most airlines will transport your equipment FREE OF CHARGE.


Trolling is a fishing method where baited fishing lines are drawn through the water. Special purpose fishing rods and multiplier reel sets with rigid 0.9 mm fluorocarbon leaders or stainless steel leaders are mainly used in this technique.


Lures may vary in type, shape and size. The common thing is that almost all of them are effective. It is preferable to use wobblers longer than 15 cm.


These are superficial surface bites, installed in a wobbler-like pattern. It is possible to install a lure bird or flying lure before the skirt, imitating fishlike splashes.

  • Trolling dead bait fish
    This is a very efficient method, where small tuna fish is used as a lure, and the lure is let to sink to different depths through various methods.
  • Local fishing methods
    Local fishermen offer a variety of fishing techniques – by means of wobblers, skirts and many others.


This is a very attractive fishing technique. You can see and feel the strike, which in most cases is very strong.
You will need strong and rigid popping casting rods and fast-working reels. 0.9 or 1 mm fluorocarbon leader, hook snaps for fast and easy lure change, as well as a strong physique to create a powerful throw…
We would also add spin fishing technique to this section, the difference here being that the lure used is of lighter weight.
This method is efficient when fishing close to the reef, and using a small boat. This fishing technique is very attractive, fishes are smaller and not so small.


Jigging is a relatively new fishing method. The lures in this type of fishing are the so called pilkers weighing from 150 to 250 grams, having different shape and color. The equipment is specific, both in terms of the stick and the reel. They are made in such a way as to create the right jig game. The strikes are registered mostly when the jigging lure is sinking.

The depths in which jigging technique is practiced are from 50 m to 150 m. It is good for the fiber to be vertical – which leads to better results. Since the technique attracts big fishes, you need to have more jigs and hooks because they often break. The fish striking the jig are quite diverse from the demersal fish to prominent predatory fishes.

Bottom Fishing

Bottom fishing is a very successful and popular fishing technique in Maldives. What you need is a solid equipment, lead weights, metal leader, and strong hooks. Don’t forget to get ready for a strong fight…The technique is easy to practice – take your bait to the bottom, reel in a few meters and…
