Fishing skills are vital if you live on an island, thus indigenous people have always been fishing for life rather than leisure. Not surprising, fishermen in the Maldives are real pros. Luckily, these friendly people don't conceal their skills from strangers - anyone can join a fisherman's crew and learn the most efficient techniques. Usually, they prefer to fish at night. And if you go to the nearby reefs at sunset, you can always meet a gang of fishermen who will welcome you into their company. Also, don't hesitate to go on a day fishing trip with a guide or by yourself. Fishing in the Maldives is a year-round activity, but if you want to experience the legendary big game fishing the Maldives are so famous for, go between November and March. The most abundant species include sailfish, marlin, dorado, tuna, and wahoo.
