OMAN – SALALAH/HALLANIYAT
The Musandam in the north of Oman became well known for its GT fishing almost 15 years ago. The Musandam-area is fairly small and the amount of fishing pressure it can handle limited but the initial impressive catches of big GTs showed some of Oman’s potential.
That there was much more to come became clear when the Hallaniyat Islands in Southern Oman was discovered a few years later. The islands rise up from depths of over 2000 meters and in the strong currents running along the islands and the underwater mountains surrounding them monster GTs hunt at the top of the food chain. For the last few years this monster-GT hot spot has continuously made headlines that shook the popping world.
At Getaway Sea Angling we followed the development of the fishery closely but we couldn’t get the right deal. We finally found a new partner but due to the worldwide pandemic situation we had to wait for almost two years to make the first trips happen.
Good things come to those who wait and eventually we got the right deal that let us offer top weeks at a very competitive price. Oman/Hallaniyat, here we come again!
