WILD OCEAN FISHING CHARTERS


You watch your line go tight and a second later the reel starts screaming as line is peeled off so fast you think it’s going to explode!! It’s time to clip in and enjoy the ride!! Cape Town and the nutrient rich waters off Cape Point offer some of the finest and most exciting Yellowfin tuna fishing in the world. For those of you that don’t know, the Yellowfin tuna (Thunnus Albacares ) is undoubtedly the strongest fighting fish in the tuna family. After leaving Hout Bay we will take you anywhere between 15 and 40 miles offshore in search of your dream fish. We will target Yellowfin and Longfin tuna but occasionally Bigeye tuna ( Thunnus Obesus ) and recently Southern Bluefin tuna ( Thunnus Maccoyii ) are also caught.



The Yellowfin tuna generally gather around the trawlers and longliners waiting for scraps to eat. We will use 3 methods to catch them, namely trolling, baiting and popping and spinning. Sizes range from 15kg to 90kg ( averaging around 45kg ) but every season a few fish over 100kg are caught.



Longfin tuna ( Thunnus Alalunga ) range from 5kg to 25kg ( averaging around 10kg ) and are great fun on light tackle, especially for youngsters. Dorado, Skipjack tuna, Mako sharks and Blue sharks are also caught. All sharks are released.



Dolphins, whales, Oceanic sunfish and many species of pelagic birds are also seen whilst travelling out to the tuna grounds. Occassionally there are sightings of killer whales off Cape Point.



We will fish until around 3pm depending on sea and fishing conditions and have you back in harbour by 5pm.



Snacks, lunch, coffee and drinks will be provided.

Our aim is to make your fishing charter experience fun, memorable and safe. You, our client and friend, always comes first and we will do whatever it takes to put you on the fish, operating out of the beautiful and picturesque town of Hout Bay

View Consultant Information
Cape Town offers us amazing yellowtail fishing off Cape Point and False Bay in the summer months and around the famous Robben Island in the winter months. (Robben Island is where our former president Nelson Mandela was imprisoned from 1964 onwards ). Using light tackle and spinning for yellowtail (Seriola Lalandi) offers action packed and exciting fishing for both youngsters and adults alike. Even though they are only 3kg to 6kg in size, yellowtail are exceptionally strong fighters for their size and once hooked will swim straight for the bottom to try “reef” you.

Whilst trolling for yellowtail can be successful at times, Bruce prefers stalking the fish and specialises in sightcasting for them with metal spinners and plastic surface lures. This is a much more exciting way of catching them and is very visual, often letting you watch the fish chase and grab the spinner or surface lure. Atlantic Bonito (Sarda sarda), Cape Snoek (Thyrsites atun) and what we call a Slender Tuna are sometimes also caught.

What’s also nice about this charter is that you get stunning views of Table Mountain and Cape Town from the sea whilst fishing at Robben Island. We also encounter whales, dolphins, penguins, Oceanic Sunfish and seals during this charter.

Duration of charter is 5-6 hours. Snacks and drinks will be provided.
