Our Charter

Written by

 

Our Charters are for those anglers who are seeking an Exclusive Fishing Adventure with Personal Attention on a well-appointed boat, fitted with top class equipment and tackle, complete with guiding from a professional specialized angler.

It is not customary for us to share our bookings which means that you, the angler get to do exactly what you want, along with personal assistance and guiding.

We specialize in taking out 1 to 4 guests, but are licensed for a maximum of 6 guests. 

We have a good catch rate and although we mostly do get fish on our bookings, and often some nice big ones, there is unfortunately no guarantee of fish…However, our best efforts are assured at all times – Otherwise we could call it “catching” and not “fishing”!

 

We operate mainly from Warner Beach Ski-Boat Club (Amanzimtoti) and Durban Ski-Boat Club (next to Ushaka) and although these are our main launch sites, we are able to accommodate other areas on special request.

Deep Sea Fishing

Written by

Launching from either Durban Ski-Boat Club or Warner Beach Ski-Boat Club (Amanzimtoti) our Deep Sea Fishing experience is for the first time angler to the old salt dogs!

Warner Beach just a mere 30km south of Durban offers safe and secure parking and club facilities. Fishing in the summer months often lands our destination at Aliwal Shoal; a mecca for Game Fishermen and Scuba Divers alike. This MPA (Marin Protected Area) offers a variety of Game Fish from Yellow Fin Tuna, Wahoo, Dorado, Sail Fish, Amber Jacks, Couta, and a variety of King Fish. Warner Beach offers some excellent Reef Fishing from Prospection to just before the Aliwal Shoal.

Durban Ski-Boat Club offers safe and secure parking with club facilities. The launch is sheltered and safe for all ages.  Offering a variety of fishing options from Game to Reef Fishing, from the Bluff to Udloti the options are vast!  During the Winter months, we offer Night Fishing Trips - targeting Geelbek and Daga Salmon.

Tiger Fishing

Written by

The Ultimate Fresh Water Predator:  the Striped Water Dog AKA Tiger Fish, has to be one of the most exciting and spectacular fresh water fish to catch, with its razor sharp teeth and veracious nature, this fresh water game fish offers the angler excitement and adrenalin, with its acrobatic display, its speed and agility!  The Tiger Fish is a formidable opponent on light or fly tackle.  All this while enjoying the surrounding Pongola Game Reserve, watching Elephants bathing and Rhino grazing, Buck running and Croc’s hunting!  Our Jozini Tiger Fishing Trips offer the angler a truly amazing experience!

 

Tiger Trips are purely Catch and Release.

Marlin Fishing

Written by

Trolling the depths all is quiet and still … suddenly excitement erupts on board at the unmistakable sound of a reel coming to life as the reel screams away!  The adrenalin starts to pump as we look back to see the marvel of a Marlin springing clear out the water.  The fun begins as we strap in and sit down for the ultimate battle of Man vs Fish … The excitement, the thrill, the pain and the glory this is what Marlin fishing offers every angler!

During our Summer months from October to March, our Marlin experiences are tailor-made and hosted mainly from Durban KwaZulu-Natal and Richards Bay (See packages for more details) We have 5 target species of Bill Fish namely:  Black Marlin, Blue Marlin, Striped Marlin, Sailfish and the Short-Billed Spear Fish. From Durban we target mainly Black Marlin, Striped Marlin, Blue Marlin and Sailfish then include Short Bill Spear Fish from Richards bay!  

Our Marlin trips cater for a maximum of 4 guests. We offer an 8 hour trip as well as a 12 hour trip. We keep to our Ethos of Responsible and Sustainable Angling and make every effort to safely release all our Bill Fish to fight another day!

Report 1

 

17 November

 

So, the Wind has been giving us a hard time but we have managed a couple of fun Trips. We had a Trip with Cameron Delport from the Sunfoil Dolphins along with Editor and Chief of Go Fish Magazine Kirk Newton for a couple of hours on the water. Weather was not great with a big low pressure system looming the Tuna were not playing ball. After a couple of Hours we decided to try for some Snoek in the shallows, on our way back to base, we hooked into a nice size Snoek which was about 5kg give or take, Cameron Fought it right up to the back of the boat before the Helco pulled from the fish, but was a fun trip with the guys. 


The Following Day I had a trip booked and with the weather looking better after the Low Pressure System had passed. I decided to head for some deeper waters to see if we could hunt some Dorado, it was not long after that, we had a reel screaming, but it was not a Dorado on the other end but rather a Nice sized Sailfish, which gave us a great show and despite having to fight the fish in some light drizzle gave us some good fun for about 20 min or so before she jumped and threw the hooks. After that things where quiet so we worked our way back to some deeper reefs and managed a couple of Gelbek and a few Size Soldiers. 

The Weather should start to settle down now in time for summer.
Think we are going to be in for a Bumper Game Fishing Season.

 

Report 2

 

22nd October - First Dorado for 2014/2015 Season

 

With some signs of some stable weather today we launched at Durban Ski boat club. The water conditions in close where far from favourable with green brackish water in close, after trying for some bait we decided to head out to the 100m line straight out going over a couple of marks I have. It was not long before we had 3 lines running. The one line had hooked into a small rainbow runner which I quickly got to the boat, sadly though it was only about a foot long and jumped off right next to the boat. Then Jaco and his wife got the opportunity to get stuck in. was not long before we managed to land 2 Dorado. The first on board for the season, they weighed in at 5kg and 7Kg. not huge but a good sign for things to come.

 

Report 3 - 13 October

 

Last Friday I got a call around 14:00 for some guys who had booked a trip for the Saturday with another charter who had just canceled with them due to the predicted weather conditions for Saturday. They really wanted to go fishing as asked if I would go out on the Saturday, I sadly declined the Saturday trip but asked if they would prefer a Night Trip as the weather was good and we could launch around 16:00 and return around 22:00.


After all was said and done we met up at DSBC and launched for 16:00 We scratched around for bait but it was quiet.. so I ran down to S#*t Pipe where we managed to find loads. by 17:30 we where sitting out on John Ross with dismal showings.. so we tried a couple of drifts but the current was screaming.. water Temp was good around 22 Deg. We moved off to Ben Corum where we had some good showings but not alot of action. Eventually went to the cave and found some really good showing.. on our first Down 2 of the guys got good takes and after a good 10min fight the Tax man showed up and helped him self to both of there Bek. We then decided to try again and on our 3rd drift 3 of the guys hooked up only to all be taxed yet again..Decided to rather not waste my time and tackle I decided to try on another spot which also seamed to be quiet on the Sounder but on our second drift we had a double hook up again.. but sadly this was not going to be our night.. as once again we had a Tax Audit

taking our fees to 7 Bek. but none the less the Guys had a great time and really enjoyed hooking into some nice fish.. 
We where back on the beach by 22:30 to load and go..

Meet Nereus on her Maiden Voyage

Written by

So it has been a while since I posted a fishing report… So to Start I would like to introduce you to NEREUS (Meaning -NEREUS was the old  man of the sea, and the god of the sea’s rich bounty of fish) the newest member  of our Fleet… She is a 19ft  Yeld Cat Walk around with 2 x 90 Evinrude etecs to  push her along… So it is after weeks of prep work getting her ready to go for a her Samsa inspection. I Finally managed to pick up my LGSC from samsa last  week which worked out quite well… with some support from Neptune the weather was looking good for the weekend, just in time to take Nereus for her first sea trial and put her through the paces. So after arranging with one of my mates at  the Ski boat club we agreed to take her for a run down to Aliwal and back and  pop a couple of lines in the water while on our way. So we meet up at 5:30 and we're at the Club for 6:00 and started loading the all the Rods and tackle. And after sorting out a couple of small issues like flat battery we were ready to undergo the maiden voyage… so we hitched up the  tractor and headed for the beach. Ballie our Tractor Driver and Duty Officer reversed her up to the water and dropped him just short of the shore break, where I have to say I thought we would battle to turn her but with just myself  and Daniel we managed with very little water and effort to turn her around and  push her in.We dropped the motors and where off. The launch was an  interesting one with a couple of nasty curlers and double stacks coming through  but we managed to make a couple of tight turns and get out safely.. I have to  say I was very surprised at how those 90′s made him hope on to the plain… any  way once on the back line I decided to give her a good run and flattened the  spoons and was flying along at over 60kph with no problems. After a little  testing we turned and headed south to Aliwal, running in the mid RPM we where  comfortably able to maintain a comfortable 40kph speed down to Umgababa where we decided to drop lines and troll the rest of the way… as I have not loaded all  my makes as yet, I just worked the ledges and drop offs and was not long before  we had a couple of bonnies on the line, but sadly that was all we managed to  find… as we worked out way out the the 200m line the weather was getting a little wet so we decided to pull lines and run back to Warners. The run took  up about 20min to the back line, as we awaited our turn to beach, I checked the  fuel and was surprised that we had only used a tank per motor. . In any case we waited our turn lined up and went for the beach…
