Kiddies Fishing

In the last 2 days we did 4 inshore trips, the water has been warm and crystal clear and the sea flat. All our trips were families with little children and so we fished with our famous light tackle Bass rods that we use for inshore. We had a blast catching small Tuna and Bonnies. We hooked up so many fish we were not even able to keep up, sometime all the lines were going and almost all of the tim...e we had fish on, we got well over 100 fish over the 2 days including a decent size Yellowfin that revved the little boy and he had to hand the rod over to daddy, the parents also had their fair share of fun on 4 action packed trips. On the down side there were a lot of sharks around and some of our fish got taxed, and the sharks were even taking our rapalas, I think we lost 7.

Easter Weekend 2014 Fishing Report

For most of the Easter weekend we had great weather and good seas, inshore waters were warm and clean, but the deeper waters were green and cold and so we had to stay on the inside. We fished from Thursday right through to Tuesday and had winds from all directions over the 6 days that we fished. Fishing was not easy but we did get 3 good size Wahoo, a Dorado and went 0-2 with two Black Marlin on/offs which was really frustrating. We had a triple Yellowfin Tuna hook up on one trip and then we got some smaller Yellowfin Tuna and Oceanic Bonitos along with some Slinger and Soldier Bream.

Easter Weekend Fishing

Weather forecast looks great for the long weekend, we have a SW wind blowing today so we should expect some nice clean water. Yellowfin Tuna, Wahoo and Black Marlin have been around. We still have Friday the 18th April available for the Easter Weekend and good conditions for getting a Black Marlin.

Wahoo Pics from Durban

5 days of fishing

We had guests out from Estonia for 5 long days days fishing in a row, was tiring but all good.
On Wednesday we hooked up a Black Marlin on 50lb tackle and after 1hr15min we lost it about 400m out when the line parted. On Wednesday we hooked up another Black Marlin and after about 15min in rushed the boat and the line went slack and we lost it. We also got some Oceanic Bonitos. Friday we spent at Inanda Dam Bass Fishing and in the 2 x 4hr Sessions we landed over 60 Bass with the largest being 1.5Kg. Saturday the small boat had engine problems in the morning which we could not get sorted so we did the afternoon session offshore again in some very rough Seas. Sunday was a great 4hr trip and we landed a nice Wahoo and some Yellowfin Tuna which the guys turned in Sashimi on the way back before they had to go to the airport.

60Kg (130lb) Yellowfin Tuna on Fat Girl off Durban 02042014

Yesterday was a great day on Fat Girl,we had guests from the UK and we ran out 20km early in the morning and dropped lines into a very flat ocean, water was just under and over 24deg and not so clear, we made our way out to 1600m deep when suddenly we got a warm clean patch of water of 24.5deg and bang, we were on with a big fish which turned out to be a 60Kg (132lb) Yellowfin Tuna. For Durban this a magnificent catch
