IMG-20160711-WA0003 IMG-20160711-WA0004

We had a great day at Robben island with Muhammed and friends on Saturday.

Arriving at the island around 8:45am we got stuck into a big shoal of katonkel. Getting a few strikes on the troll. Later on in the day we found some yellowtail on the spinner which was great fun and got taxed by a few seals which added great excitement to the day. We came across a huge pod of dolphin on our way home, a awesome way to end a fantastic fishing day.

Rodger,  Albe and mates joined us for another trip to the deep yesterday.  Fishing was very slow in the morning but we managed to russel up some Longfin and Yellowfin just after lunch.

We hooked up to a monster Yellowfin but unfortunately the hook pulled about 20min into the fight.  We still managed to land a smaller Yellowfin and a couple of Longfin. Thanks for the great day guys,  see you boys soon.

Friday the 13th……. Who would have thought it would be our lucky day.

Heading out with Daniel and mates, for a bachelors fishing trip, we managed to put all the boys on some fish. Unexpectedly we hooked a 91kg Bluefin tuna on the troll which was something really special for the client and us! We also boated a 60kg yellowfin and  Longfin. What a awsome day on the water!

The Catch After the Storm – 24 April2016

DSCF1466 DSCF1468

Phill joined us for some tuna action this weekend. Arriving in the deep after the huge storm that hit Cape Town at the start of the weekend, we didn’t know where to start looking for fish. The water was green and cold were we caught fish a couple days ago so I followed my insticts and trolled towards the inside. Here we found blue warm water.

Within 10min in the blue water we had a double up strike on Longfin. I turned the boat for the drift and started throwing bait. We raised a shoal of Longfin and Yellowfin sitting under the longfin at 40m. We hooked some Longfin on the bait I eventually hooked a Yellowfin. Passing the rod to Phill who was excited to get his dream Yellowfin. Unfortunately 30min into the fight the hook pulled and we lost the fish.

I stripped another bait going tight on a monster fish. The fish ran on the surface for about 300m then took a dive. 1hr and 30min later we landed the fish. It was a 200+kg Mako shark which came up tail wrapped. We safely released the shark. Non the less Phill was chuffed with his big shark and he will be back next year to get his big Yellowfin. We look forward to having him on board again!

Popping with Justin and Guests – 20 April 2016

 

Justin Kemp and the Columbia boys joined us for a popping charter. We arrived in the deep catching some Longfin on the bait to begin with. The Yellowfin arrived  seeing some monster Yellowfin in the chum. Our adrenaline started to pump.

Hooking our first couple of Yellowfin on the bait Justin started throwing his hammer head popper. Within minutes he had a bus of a yellowfin come up and smash his popper. The fish hit the popper but didn’t hook up. He turned and hit it again with huge force. Justin was on, rod bending and Stella screaming he was smiling from ear to ear. He landing a very nice Yellowfin of 95kg.

We then got Albe stuck into a huge Yellowfin on the bait. With the North Westley picking up I got anxious to get this fish onboard. Eventually after 2hours we landed this monster Yellowfin weighing in at 103,6 kg!!!
