Fishing is in the Maldivian blood. It is so entwined in the lives of Maldivians that there are celebrations when a good catch is caught and complaints when fish is scarce at our dinner tables.
Maldivian fishermen wake up to the dawn call of island roosters, collect bait in nearby reefs and start a full day's work at the deep blue seas, using the artful pole and line method of fishing.
To experience the satisfaction of catching and cooking your own fish, a night fishing trip (offered by the hotel) is the way to go. Your boat leaves before the sunset to find a good spot near a reef. The boat crew will show you how to use the lines, hooks, and sinkers.
