    Try Your Hand at Fishing the Traditional Way

    I might have been six years old when my grandfather began including me on his fishing trips. Remember him – I mentioned him in my last story. Before that, I had never been on the sea for such a long time – imagine, a whole day at sea! That day he chose the south side of the island to fish. We threw our nets out into the sea for the second time that morning. As we approached a small nearby beach, my grandfather cleaned and barbecued a grilled fish that we’d caught only an hour before. What sense of pride I felt when my Grandfather told me how satisfied he was with my help, and that he never could have caught so many fish without me. As a young boy, I really believed this was true!

    The culture of fishing is deeply rooted in the lives of the Dalmatian people. The sea provides a way of life that is evident even today in a coastal civilization. As in days of antiquity, life lived next to the sea is synonymous with the sea itself. For traditional fishermen, the sea drives their emotions, dictates their moods, and puts bread on the table. On the islands, fishing is a trade as well as an art form which has been passed down, father to son, for countless generations.

    This excursion provides a firsthand life experience for those who love fishing and love the sea. See for yourself why this traditional activity is probably the most significant part of life in Dalmatia. Whether you want to try your hand at fishing, or choose to enjoy the expedition as a guest, you’ll get a fresh perspective. Experienced local fishermen have many tales to tell about the demanding and spiritual life at sea. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced fisherman, we extend our invitation to you. Join us – not just to have a wonderful time on the water, but to revel in the traditional fishing techniques and the various fishing boats used throughout the centuries.

    The departure times for our fishing trip may vary, depending on your preferences. Most of the time, we set sail in the early morning hours from a small port in Slatine called “Porat”. This location was not randomly chosen! The inhabitants of Slatine have traditionally made their livelihood from fishing, and more than half of the men who live here today are either sailors or fishermen.

    You will add some new words to your vocabulary, such as prova, krma, cima, timun. You will also learn about fishing knots, hooks, lines, and nets; as well as how to use vrsa, mriza or parangal. You will learn how to catch the needlefish and the squid, which are used as live bait for an even bigger and better tasting fish. Using our techniques, if you are lucky, you will catch yourself something really special for dinner.

    For this kind of trip you won’t need a fancy speed boat, an echo-sounder or any another type of modern equipment. This trip is for those who love tradition, experiencing adventure and for those who have a passion for sea.

    Of course, the trip concludes with a delicious fish dinner at the local tavern where you’ll feast on the fruits of your labor and enjoy some of the delicious fine wines from the Dalmatian region.

My sister and I recently chartered a boat for the traditional fishing experience through Argola. From the beginning it felt as if we were just hanging out with friends. Incredible day and experience! I would totally recommend Argola Charter to anyone looking for a great time on the water!! Thanks again!

Mario Palas

Many thanks, vielen Dank, Hvala! Es war alles perfekt und wir kommen bestimmt wieder.und für alle die,die sich typische Sorgen machen - hier sind sie unbegründet. Es wird mehr geliefert,als versprochen,denn neben Service und Boot an sich ist es diese Freundlichkeit, die das Unternehmen unterscheidet.

Tim Schraag

Zum zweiten Mal haben wir den hervorragenden Service vom Argola-Charter-Team genießen können. Die Boote waren in einem Top Zustand, dass Team hatte für jedes Problemchen immer ein offenes Ohr und sofort ein Lösung parat.
