SNOEK CITY

The 22 – 23 degree Marlin water is moving further South, and is slowly being replaced with the nutrient rich cooler water from the West coast, this cooler water of 14 – 15 degrees often brings with it huge shoals of Cape Snoek. These fish can be targeted on the shallow reefs close to the shore and are great fun to catch on light tackle that is carefully matched for the job.

Our father and son team from S.A. were keen to try their hand on one or two of these toothy critters.

Only 7 miles from the moorings in Hout Bay and we were working some excellent marks on the echo sounder , it wasn’t long before the backlines produced some fish, followed by the spinners and the bait respectively. The guys had achieved a " triple header “ of Snoek in less than an hour !

Well done Guys !

BRADLEY TICKED THE BOX !

With the fish now well and truly settled in, it presents a GREAT opportunity to go target big Yellowfin Tuna , for many anglers that means putting a tick in the right box.

Often Anglers fish their whole life and can only dream of doing battle with one of the strongest fighting fish in the world’s oceans , that was certainly the case for Bradley a visitor from up country who was determined one day to tick the Yellowfin Tuna box and  “Cape Town Fishing Charters “  were expected to put him on that fish !

Running out to the deep across flat calm seas is always a pleasure , but running out to sea on a mission to catch a guy a big fish when you know darn well exactly where those fish are......, that is the best feeling in the world !

Approximately 4 hours after throwing the mooring lines Bradley was the proud owner of a 42kg Yellowfin Tuna , and needless to say the happiest angler on the ocean !

Chartering a boat, man alone is not a decision to take lightly but when it happens, and it does happen from time to time make sure you do it with          “Cape Town Fishing Charters”  because aboard Beluga you know we will do whatever it takes and go wherever we must go to catch YOU the client the fish you are looking for !

THE NOT SO ELUSIVE YELLOWFIN !

The Longfin and the Yellowfin Tuna are back in the Canyon in good numbers, Yellowfin up to 85kg's have been in the box in recent trips and the Longfin have been a respectable class of fish up to 30kg’s, great fish to catch on an Ashley Read mini half round with 15kg mono and a Saragossa 14000, I am referring to the Longfin off course !

We had the pleasure of taking another of our loyal guests out recently, a guy that needs no introduction to either the Longfin or the Yellowfin Tuna out there, needless to say with one of “ Cape Town Fishing Charters “  Tiagra 50w's loaded with 80lb tournament Ande strapped into his black magic Samson made short work of this 64kg bullet, 17 minutes to be exact ! Well done Sam, always a pleasure !
