Overnight? Stay at accommodation in Simons Town, in Western Cape

This can be a very diverse and exciting fishing trip as there are many good reefs and fishing areas to choose from. We could head up to Cape Point where large shoals of Yellowtail and Snoek arrive annually. These esteemed game-fish are a fast and powerful predator and give an excellent fight.

During our crayfish season, we often drop ring-nets in the kelp beds off Cape Point to catch a few of these tasty delicacies for the pot. Alternatively, we head into False Bay towards Seal Island which is inhabited by thousands of Cape fur seals,in turn, attracting a large number of Great White sharks (a protected species) and one can often see these phenomenal apex predators clear the water while hunting their furry prey

On this charter, we also target Cape Salmon, Kabeljou, Katonkel, Skipjack tuna, Red Roman, Hottentot and various other species, including different types of sharks. (sharks are caught on a catch and release basis only)
