Yup, when u head over to Measaeed based Sealine resort before that a small left is there which is an untouched place sort of corner or beach open to sea...There we go a lot and I have seen people catching crabs and real big fishes...There I though fishing is damn easy untill I saw one of my friends on FB catching nothing at Corniche after 2-3 hours...:)))
go to wakra beach after friday(near fish market) there is a lot with this habbit.
does anyone have a recommendation on the easiest option to go fishing with kids if you have no equipment or experience? Only options I've found are Ronautica and QIA tours, seem a bit pricey, just want to try out fishing with my son sometime. I'd be happy to buy some basic equipment and just hire a boat as long as the guy in charge would know where to take us

I'm so intrested to join a fishing trip into open water with somebody if there's any intrested,
It's my most intresting hobby, please send me PM if someone can help or at least to guide me how to join, as it seems the thread here was long time ago.
thanks in advance
A friend in need, A friend indeed!
hey mate, we are lucky that we have a big bait ball type..or mass group of small fish who live in the boat marina!!
so we chuck on a weight and a trebble and cave-man style hook them,..not so nice but they get eaten quickly with our needle fish! :-)
i have tried dead fish but they are not so good.
sorry if it isnt much help.
I was wondering where you got the small live fish? have not been able to find any.
hi, i need fishing rod with machine..how much it cost? can u show me some pics..email@example.com
i really like fishing too...I'm a new-comer here in doha. I was in saudi jeddah before, my favorite past time there is fishing specially on thursdays and fridays.
i used some little fish...live baite about 7-9cm long!!...haha we even cooked the little one..forgot about it beeing inside. when we opened it for eating we found it!!
it was on the west coast somewhere!!!
this fish is called "Sobeeti" and it is indeed one of the best fish in both fishing and cooking. Also it is getting less in numbers in the Gulf.
Can you please tell me the type of bait you are using also the name or the whereabouts of the fishing place.
I like this fresh silver fish. Hope you had a good recipe for a yummy meal.
here is the link...hopefully the attachment works? anyone caught one of these?
have you all seen my other post about whats the name of my fish?? it tasted great!!!
but a boat trip for big fish would be great!!!
Are you experienced jigging in Doha?
Hello James I am up for a spot of fishing, drop me a PM if you want
hey all, been fishing a few times now, caught some needle fish?? they like live bait! but only from the shore :-(
would be cool to get a few of us together and have a "real lads fishing trip"
Hey guys I am very much fond of fishing and i know some good place, where you can catch big fish. I am looking for someone who is going on boat for fishing and I would much appreciate if u could join me in your team. So we can enjoy fishing.
Hi, I just recently moved into Doha, brought all my fishing equipment for light and heavy casting, and vertical jigging.
I am experienced in the Med.
I've already tried Al Wakra, caught a Red Snapper after a few casts and small barracudas.
If anyone has a boat and no fishing experience, I have the equipment and the expertise, so please contact me here, I'll be checking next days!
Hi I am interested in fishing/sharing the cost too.
Anyone going fishing in a boat, please let me know. Im willing to share the cost. Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org . Thanx.
I am in to lure casting as well. Just wonder, have you found any good spots yet for casting? Do you go out casting this weekend or sea fishing?
Let me know.
ive got the travel and ept but no trawling experience.. lets hookup if possible.
For the best fishing get a boat about 30km offshore and troll for Sailfish and mahi Mahi.
Of the rocks in the early morning, using chum and a lure get some Queen fish which are great.
Hey guys been trying to find someone to share a boat trip to go fishing here in Doha, anyone interested? myself and a friend have been wanting to go for a while now, if youve got a boat and have space for two we dont mind splitting the costs?!?
I'm interested in joining your fishing trip and share the cost of the boat.
You can call me on 605 7944
Always in a fishing mood
QL member Sasa - above - is well into fishing....

I will tell him when he comes back....next week
In the meantime why doesn't someone else start a fishing group??
If you want to share cost of a boat give me a PM, Im planning to get a few people together at end of Oct for an offshore fishing trip.

the best spot for fishing in qatar is khor al udied,anyone interested can join our group,you nedd a 4x4 to reach there.
How can i post pics? ...
then i can also show you the route
snowstorm.. when u enter al khor and you see the main market.. and that supermarket.. the next round about you take right and there is the corniche..
i drive to raslaffan most days but inside alkhor iam not very sure about the routes.
just tell me where is the round about to corniche....
YOU DONT KNOW ME, DONT EVEN TRY !!!
that was cool ... Guess I will go alone this Friday and try it ... to reach the far to the king fish ... if the wind is blowing from behind your back then get a piece of floating material and you can use as well one plastic,blow some air inside and arrange it properly on the water, put your bait on the top and let the wind take it deep inside ... then pull the line ... worked perfectly on Corncihe while I saw a man jumping on the water [a king fish that every one heard it when it hit the water from far away, something really huge] ...
What kind of fish there? Shaeri? Safi? Hamour or ...?
Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment. (Gautama Buddha)
With the risk of having my favourite fishing spot crowded everytime I go there with QL members I will share, just because I know how it feels not having the good-spots knowledge in a new location that you've just mooved into.
Drive to Al Khor.
Go inside the city, at the roundabout at corniche go straight. Next roundabout, go straight.
Badeeen, pass by the Al khor comunity (it will be on your right), take the immediate turn right after that and drive straight.
After about 5 km take a turn to the left and drive straight for about 1.5 km, after take a turn to the right and stop after 900m. You will see:
- the sea in front of you
- and a house/settlement on your left.
Now, take the tarmac road behind the house and you will reach a deserted dhow that is raised on some wood pylons.
You now have in front of you the sea again and a land strip that goes inside the sea for about 300m.
The car can enter only 100m (the strip gets thin)
Leave the car there and take all your gear ... stop somwhere close to the tip and enjoy. :)
And as an extra bonus tip, cast your line on the southern side of the strip. there are more fish and smaller waves than on the other side.
In September you will see large kingfish (1 m) jumping out of the water for smaller fish banks. It's amaizing !
Don't get all excited, you need a boat to catch that fishes.
Now, I hope i will still have my 4 sqm of space when i will go there this Friday :)
Waiting for you post-fishing comments and pics.:)
P.S. - and yes, it's better early morning.
for a fisherman, morning is casting the line at 4 AM

Have a great and short week and a loong relaxing weekend.
All the best.
have you been successful in finding any spots. if so please share.
why you changed your mind it is really fun to go fishing early , at this time due to weather is really hot the best time is to start early and we stay up to 10 AM , it is really fun you should give a try
I was originally writing to ask you to count me in. But then the folks scared the daylight out of me when suggested the trip would be as early as 05- 06:00 am.
Now, I'm officially backing down and lowering the flag too..:))
thanks and also it will be my pleasure to see you again
i found the Wkra is the nice and near place to go fishing , hope will go again
That's the idea behind going early :D
Well you have many options:
1. Do not let him sleep
2. Do not go fishing
3. Go fishing late.
In fact Novi, the best time for fishing is early in the morning. Usually we opt to go early so that we will be actually fishing by 5 or 6.
When it is time, guess everybody has to make sure that all who are willing to join are there. Always things can be flexible. Some go fishing at evening, but the chances here are less than in the morning.
Do not feel sad.
does fishing have to do in the morning ... i think i will have a hard time to wake hubby up at 4am ... :-(
Novi. We have suspended our fishing activities. It will be fun when families join in he coming trips.
Sasa. Looking forward for future trips, it will be my pleasure as always to be the coffee contractor:)
jauntie. Now you are making us feel guilty and betrayal.
You are right about early morning at the sea. Very healthy. Although am much into sleeping late and lazy at weekends, when I used to go with friends for dep sea fishing, It was very interesting feeling. You feel very fresh and alert and hopeful watching the sunrise in the middle of te sea.
I was very envious when they all went off 'crabbing'. There is something about the sea and early mornings that is so fresh and nice and healthy feeling (says she who hasn't been to the seaside at dawn since last time she was at an all night party in Brighton lol).
Seriously - would be great, once some of the others are back from their holidays, to get a trip going. Lots seemed interested including some of us ladies. Scarlett is positively beside herself with wanting to go fishing :D
i went last week to wkra it was fun and nice maybe i will do it again next week end waiting for another fish trip together
missing your coffee
still waiting for the weather getting cooler ... than KellyHeroes and Darude can take me and my family for crab hunting.
How are you my friend.
I did not forget you. Check my thread date, a bit old.
Well, we did not go any fishing trips except for that to Wakra which was 2 or 3 weeks ago.
Take care and hope to get together soon.
you for get mee what no interested people why , im here and ready any time for fishing my fried
Tw stuck with the group and we do fishing trips here as well
Thanks sanjeev and jauntie ... will take a look at your suggestions...hope to wet some lines soon :)
Hi! If you go into the Social Group (click on Groups, above here) you will find some threads about fishing - not sea fishing, though. However, I did see someone in one of the threads saying he knew some good fishing places.
Have a look. If you don't see anything just put your question re lure fishing to the people in the threads which discuss fishing, I'm sure someone will answer.
I was actually looking for a good spot too. Heard the location at Wakra is good, else u gotta drive up to Khor.
Thanks for your reply... been quite busy to go fishing too... from what i see most places along shore are too shallow...dun see any fish near shore...and saw some no fishing signs at some places ... best would be to hire a boat...looking around for any fishing guides... any one can recommend? mayb can organise a boat trip :)
I ache to go fishing but till now I did not find the interested people and personally I do not have a fishing boat.
My experience about fishing spots is zero.
