Hooked on Africa

Hooked on Africa

A day out in the deep will long be remembered as it brings you into contact not only with one of the worlds toughest fighting fish but also into a diverse ecosystem. Yellowfin Tuna found in the Cape waters often top the scales at 80 kgs plus.

Conventional Fishing:

The Cape has some of the richest Tuna grounds in the World today. The Yellowfin Tuna found in the Cape waters often top the scales at 80 kgs plus and we catch Longfin of 20 kgs plus. A day out in the deep will long be remembered as it brings you into contact not only with one of the worlds toughest fighting fish but also into a diverse ecosystem. Out in the warm water currents, you will get the opportunity to see numerous species of Albatross, Killer Whales (Orca) and Dusky Dolphins. The Tuna season runs from Sep to June, with the best times being at the beginning and end of the season. Cape Yellowtail is a member of the Carynx family and is a formidable fighter. We normally find these fish around the infamous Cape Point, which offers the visitor the opportunity to see this landmark from a whole new angle. We tend to incorporate this fishing day with a bit of Crayfishing (West Cost Lobster) and one can expect a decadent Crayfish lunch on board. Season runs from May through to November.

Snoek are the only fish that are available during the winter months. This underrated game fish moves into our waters in huge quantities during the months of May to September. We generally tend to find them at depths of around 15-20 meters and they provide the keen fly-fisherman with a worthy challenge on the fly. The fish are generally in the 5-7 kg class. This fishing is for everyone including complete novices. Tuna fishing takes a full day, 30 miles out to sea, so if you do suffer from seasickness then please inform us so we can provide you with the necessary precautions before coming aboard. Other species that are targeted off the peninsula coastline are: Blue Sharks, Dorado and Mako Sharks. Daiwa stand up rods with both Penn International and Shimano reels are supplied for conventional fishing.

Offshore Flyfishing:

This is a very challenging aspect of flyfishing and if you are looking for a serious fish this is the place to go. We fish areas like False Bay , Cape Point and Robben Island for Yellowtail and the very aggressive Cape Snoek. The brave venture further offshore to fish the warm currents that sweep past our coast in search of the mighty Yellowfin and Longfin Tuna . A common problem that we encounter out in the deep is that the fish are simply too big to handle on fly , but if it is a record fish that you are looking for come and try these tacklebusters for size. For the smaller fish a ten to twelve weight rod combined with a reel that holds 200m of backing will do.

The Tuna however deserves a lot more respect and nothing less than a fourteen weight combined with a really good reel that holds at least 600m of backing will do. Seasons vary from one year to the next , but as a rule all the above species are caught in summer. Cape Snoek however peak during the cold winter months.
