  My sincere apologies to all of you avid readers, for the lack of reports lately but as luck will have it, gremlins crept into the site when I last tried to upload it – and ‘poof !!!!’ like someone waved a magic wand – my whole site crashed.  After many nights and a huge […]

  The past two weeks have seen better catches of Yellowfin Tuna along with a few scattered Albacore (Longfin) Tuna amongst them.   Most of our Yellowfin have been between 15 to 30 kilograms but they are keen to rise to the lures and catches of 12 to 18 fish a day have been common place. […]

  Although we have had some fairly unseasonal weather these past few weeks, the fishing has been regularly good.   Unfortunately the water at Cape Point has turned cold and the shoals of Yellowtail, Cape Salmon, Skipjacks and small Yellowfin Tuna which were feeding well, moved out of the area.  The Yellowtail have remained around the […]

  I’ve just been reminded by one of our regular readers, that I have not updated the report.   In his words “the fishing must be good”.   Nazeem, you hit the nail on the head, as the latest set of pictures in the gallery will show. Apart from the odd few days of wind the fishing […]

  Well I’ve finally got time off the water – the wind came through at last.   We’ve been on the water for almost three weeks without a break and to say the fishing has been excellent would not be doing it justice.   We’ve had Tuna, Yellowtail, Cape Salmon, Kob, Sharks, Snoek, and our first Marlin […]

  Here’s wishing all a most prosperous 2003, may the weather be kind and the fish swimming where you throw a line. Well so much for the weekly reports, after spending the day on the water the last thing anyone wants to do is sit in front of a computer, especially when one has to […]

  The past two weeks have seen some varied and exciting fishing.  As the days of strong South Easterly winds came to an end the Kob and Geelbek came on the feed.   We found some large Kob in the 13 to 20 kg range from Kalk Bay through to Kapteins Klip.   The same area also […]

  The South Easterly winds are here in full force, blowing up to 40 knots at times.  However the fish are plentiful when the winds give us a break. There are massive shoals of Albacore (Longfin) Tuna around 34:30 S / 18:04 E.  Between 50 and 80 fish on a boat is not uncommon.   There […]

  Well so much for my intended weekly report.  The obstacle I have found is that with being on the boats every day tiredness beats me in the evenings. The fishing has been excellent for the past three weeks and looks set to continue for the summer.  In the Tuna grounds the fishing has been […]

  If it’s Yellowtail you want then Cape Point is the area.   The fish are plentiful but very skittish.   They have been feeding very early in the morning and then again from about 2 pm.   They are feeding on huge shoals of Anchovies about a mile beyond the Bellows and in the afternoons, around the […]
