Fishing Holiday South Africa

Come join us on the fishing holiday of a lifetime in South Africa. Spectacular wildlife and scenery and some of the best beach based shark fishing in the world. Various fishing techniques include : throw, slide, kite and drone fishing – and can target all species. We also make use of a drone to drop bait in the deep when a kite can’t be used and we are always able to fish the best depth and target the biggest fish. We also throw or slide a bait out a bit closer to shore, to target any fish/sharks that may be in the shallows.

Fishing grounds:

Being based in the Western Cape there are many, great beaches to select from for different weather conditions, seasons and target species.

We also get to choose if we fish in the Atlantic or Indian ocean.

All locations are very scenic and easy to access by a normal passenger vehicle.

Areas covered: False Bay, Table Bay, the West Coast, Struisbaai and the Southern Cape.
