Smile Sea Fishing in Turkey

Hi there, new to the site and are wondering if any of you have been sea fishing. We are a bit concerned regarding safety and would appreciate any advice:

Re: Sea Fishing in Turkey

Hi , I used to throw a line on the beach of Mahmutlar when on holiday.
No problems with security. I always go when other fisherman are trying a catch.
People are friendly and helpful . Not much success with catching though. Only tiny fishes were caught. I guess one need special equipment to fish on the beach.

Re: Sea Fishing in Turkey

Hi,

I went sea fishing on Wednesday and had a great day/evening out.

We used the small plastic reel line with 4 hooks attached, and dropped them to the bottom (we were quite far out in the bay, I would guess 25 metres-ish) but after a while we raised the line to about 7-10 metres and caught loads of Kupez (kupes?) I have no idea what the fish is called in English.
We took them back to the restaurant and ate them, they were delicious!
It was only my third time out, but I loved it, and have plans to go again next week.

When we were fishing there were another 5-6 boats, all dotted around the same area. My advice would be to speak to a local fisherman and ask for advice or even a ride along, most Turks are happy to oblige.

Here's some pics:

My partner regularly fishes out from Altinkum, Akbuk or Tasburun. Good catches that have kept is in free food. 10kg at a time going into the freezer. A mixed bag of cupra, leverek, izmarit? and other small tasty fish.

Re: Sea Fishing in Turkey

Hi there. nice to see you on the forum.
My husband regularly goes sea fishing..for work not pleasure...and sometimes they take two or three tourists or expats with them. They are licensed and the boats insured, they have life jackets and guests get fed!
The sea around Alanya offers some wonderful opportunities both to see the coastline from afar and also almost every time yusuf has been out theres dolphins prancing in front of their boat.
Fishing whether from the beach or on sea is regulated by licenses.
