In this area of Turkey the locals fish from boats without rods.
I'm not sure if they even have a tackle shop selling any bait there.
In principle you can try feathering with smaller feathers № 10 for scad and gar fish, Lure fishing with toby and other spoons for blue fish or gar fish and bonito, Light float fishing for mullet on bread or scad and gar fish on fish strips, bottom fishing with fish baits for all sorts of gobies and wired staff. Beware the poisonous dragon fish!
If you take you rods to the beach you may gather a crowd of onlookers, they are friendly.
Don't forget your factor 25 sunscreen, bottle of water and white hat!!!
The best fishing is early morning and late afternoon.
Tight lines!

Vlad,

Thanks for the info sounds interesting, probably will take my whole kit with me as they will let me put my rod bag on the plane free under the new sporting goods scheme they now have, then I will have beachcaster, mullet rod etc at my disposal. Will probably pack some dried baits in my suitcase just in case I can't find any shops out there.

Can't wait to head off and catch some strange unusual species I have never seen before. Will watch out for the dragonfish!!

Just got back from Marmaris, nobody fishes the beaches until evening time when the "roasties" leave the water to settle down. The locals were catching smallish mullet on bread paste float fished, but never saw them catch anything sizeable, but they said they do get good fish when it gets dark, (bream & mullet). Went on a boat trip & when bread was thrown over at lunch time the water was full of small stuff feeding on it, then all of a sudden the water explodes as something comes up & grabs bread & anything else unfortunate enough not to get out of the way!
I would have loved to have had "Blue Skip" out there with me, there is potential there!

Hi Blueskip,

Thanks for the all the useful info, I am really looking forward to the trip now. I may try and hire a boat out for the day when I get out there, take the misses for a cruise around the islands and a have bit of a fish at the same time.

Cheers

Vaughan

Vaughan, it certainly seems that the further away from the tourist beaches you go, the better the fishing is, or its evening & night fishing in the popular resorts. Seeing as nowhere seems to close, there's no reason why you shouldn't fish till midnight, then go out to eat & bop! Thats what the teenagers were doing, out until 0800 sleep on the beach under an umbrella, go back get showered & dressed, eat, then drink & bop unti 0800! It would have killed me, but those were the days, try "er indoors" with the fishing until midnight & see what she say's!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry to bump an old one but Im interested as to how you guys got on in Fethiye.

I have an apartment there and watch people fishing from the beach on a regular basis, they catch quite a lot of bream but usually as its getting dark, the best area seems to be by my apartment which is the calais ( pronounced (Chellish ) end of Fethiye Harbour at the point where it meets the nature reserve,

The harbour is stuffed with fish hence the hundreds of cormarants that fish there too, best baits seem to be chicken and slices of squid.

There is a tackle shop opposite the Vizon hotel in the centre of Fethiye although very basic stuff.

I have purchased and are taking a couple of beachcasters over myself on my next trip,

I wouldnt bother mate in all honesty!
I was living out there in 2006-2007 fishing on a regular basis
Apparantly, since i've been back, they've introduced liscences becuase of the fish limits!
Beach casting is very hit and miss...no matter what bait you use it always comes back untouched!
I went on a boat in 2004 and caught a 10lb Tuna, but since then on the boats we've only had palamut (small tuna) and mackerel (spanish)
My suggestion for fishing there would be handlines...really small hooks and shrimp, if you can get your hands on any! Squid was also successful when on the boat if cut into fingernail size pieces.
Erm fishing at dark i suppose would be best, handlines just thrown out to the river/sea depending.
Rivers might be best, some pretty good mullet about...if you can get them!
Other than that...chunks of beef on the hooks, chucked into the river and then keep hold of the line in between two fingers, you should feel the crabs go for the meat and then ever so slowly bring them in, two people is best as you need a net to scoop them up from behind...and make sure the net is in the water first! This is always successful for crabs and they taste a treat...make sure you remove the ladies fingers though...and its also great fun!
MAKE SURE YOU CHECK OUT THE LISCENCE BEFORE...Turkish authorities can be pretty tough!

Good luck!

Jim

There is a professional sport fishing company in Oludeniz. It is a daily boat trip and providing you all the equipment you need. Thats "Captain Ozay's Sport Fishing" they sometimes catch really big fishes and i am not sure but if you ask them they go to private swordfish fishing tours. You can learn more from their website, i don't have permission to send links but you can google it.
