  The Yellowtail have finally started to feed with a little more respect.  The shoals are feeding between Bellows and SW Reefs (about 3 miles outside Cape Point).   However, they are on the surface for a very short time and gone again so trolling can be very frustrating.   We found the best method at the […]

  Well the Tuna have arrived.  Yesterday Jabulani returned with 6 Yellowfin in the 56 to 79 kg range plus 8 Longfin Tuna.  Fishing started at the position 34:38 S and 18:08 E with a fast drift to the north.  The wind looks set to blow for a few days so I wouldn’t get too […]

  The weather finally cleared and the seas settled quickly – and the fish were there in abundance.   The Snoek are plentiful off Cape Point and all along the Buffels Bay coast (depths of 20 meters and deeper).   They are feeding on small pilchards and anchovies so the baits, spinners and lures are working well.   […]

  Snoek are plentiful from Kommetjie Lighthouse all the way through to Cape Point.   I think that given the current weather conditions they should be in Buffels Bay by the weekend.   Fish are averaging 2 to 6 kg and are in good condition. Shoals of Yellowtail are still all around Cape Point, in the SW […]

  The Yellowtail have really played ball over the past few weeks.  Although being driven away by the weather now and again, they have been present at the Bellows, SW Reefs and Rocky Bank every day.   We have managed some good days of over 50 fish with bad days of 4 to 5 fish in […]

  This has been a great fishing week both in the Tuna grounds and closer inshore.   There are literally thousands of big Yellowfin from as close as 3 miles off Cape Point and Scarborough to about 30 miles.   The tuna range from about 50 to 90 kg and are in good strong condition.   All our […]

  And still the Yellowtail are playing hard-ball and fishing for them has become very frustrating.  Although we are catching a few, this fishing has gone beyond a joke.   There are literally thousands of them massed from Cape Point and the Bellows across to Rocky Bank but that is also where the huge schools of […]

  Summer’s on it’s way, and with it the first signs of our summer season fish.   Yellowtail at the Point and inside False Bay, Cape Salmon around, Kob along the sandy stretches and Tuna back in the area. Yellowtail to start with.   With the massive shoals of Anchovy around the Cape Point area, the Yellowtail […]

  Things are really looking up.  The Snoek are everywhere, the Yellowtail are congregating at Cape Point and even Geelbek (Cape Salmon) on a few of the reefs.   The winds we are experiencing at present are right on time and the whales have arrived in the bay.   These SW winds which have been with us […]
