Our Opening Season Road Test

We will be down in Cape Town from 4th Feb – 5th March “road testing” fishing combinations to make sure that they are absolutely perfect for our guests joining us for peak Yellowfin Tuna period in April.

We will be hitting the beaches by day and by night targeting Bronze Whaler Sharks, Raggies, Rays and the mighty Cob that patrol the surf lines. It’s a similar story off the rocks spinning and popping for Yellowtail Amberjack & Bonito and we will be running the boat Offshore for Yellowfin, Bluefin, Longfin & Big eye Tuna and at this time of year there is also a good chance of picking up the mighty Marlin that transit the canyons off Cape Point. We will also be exploriong the inshore kelp beds, reefs and wrecks that litter the NW Coast for Steenbras, Mussell Cracker and whole host of additional inshore species. Don’t be lulled into thinking this is light fishing, the Steenbras (Bream family) reach over 40lb!

If you are on a tight budget and have a sense of adventure this is the perfect trip for you as the fishing, boat, tackle & bait will all be FREE. You just need a fishing licence (about £5 and we can arrange that for you) and a contribution toward’s the fantastic accommodation we have secured at £50pp/night. Come for a week, 10 days, 14 days its up to you – its going to be full throttle so be sure you are up for the challenge!
