Deep Sea Fishing North Coast KwaZulu-Natal Overview
Deep Sea Fishing North Coast
Experience the thrill of a surf launch that takes you straight into rich fishing grounds. The boats are well maintained 19ft Ace Craft Monohulls, each powered by 2 X 90HP Yamaha Outboard Engines. The boats are fitted with G.P.S & Fish finders and top quality fishing equipment is supplied. We take a maximum 5 anglers per boat and no previous fishing experience is required.
We are able to offer shorter trips, ranging from 2 up to 7 hours, as little time is lost travelling. Fly-fishing & drop shot is becoming popular and for these specialised types of fishing you need to bring along your own equipment and charter the boat exclusively. On the 3 and 4-hour trips, due to their popularity, we are able to offer per person rates & group you together with other keen fishermen.
On all the other length trips you book the boat for yourself / group. Rods, tackle and bait are supplied and you can keep your catch at no additional charge.
- Sightseeing trips also available, enquire about applicable rates
- Gift vouchers are available
- Game, Reef and Shark fishing
The Fish: Deep Sea Fishing North Coast
We offer game, reef & shark fishing and you can keep your catch. During the summer months, December to May, we have a wide variety of game fish in our waters. The most abundant species are King mackerel (Cuda), Queen mackerel (natal snoek), Dorado (Dolphin fish), Kingfish, Queenfish, Sailfish, Marlin and Tuna. We catch 3 different types of Tuna in our area, namely Yellow Fin, East Coast (Kawakawa) and Sada Sada. We use both live bait and lures to catch most of these fish.
In the winter months, June to November, we still get Tuna and Queen mackerel but the main target is Garrick (Leervis). These are very strong fighting game fish caught using live bait just behind the waves.
All year round we have good catches of reef fish like Rock cod, salmon and reds (Slingers & Soldiers). When fishing for sharks we tend to target the smaller Grey sharks as these provide the most excitement for anglers due to their size. They are generally between 8kg and 50kg so give a good fight. Please note all sharks are released.
