Fishing with the best equipment that money can buy

"Fishing with Cape Town Fishing Charters, you can be guaranteed that you are fishing with the best equipment that money can buy"

Fishing with Cape Town Fishing Charters, you can be guaranteed that you are fishing with the best equipment that money can buy. With a quiver of Shimano Tiagra reels ranging from the 30 wides loaded with 10kg tournament line for the daring angler, to the Tiagra 50w selection loaded with 24 – 37kg line, to the outstandingly bold and powerful Tiagra 80w, loaded with 40kg line for those who want that extra pull on the beasts of the deep.

When fighting these massive fish, it has become common practice to use Black Magic fishing harnesses. With a wide selection of the Black Magic's on board and once strapped into our target fish offshore, the rest of the fight is left up to the will of the angler versus the will of the fish.

Inshore fishing we hold a range of spinning rods loaded with both nylon and "Power Pro" braid supplied by our preferred supplier of fishing tackle in Cape Town, the "Fishing Specialist"fishing-specialists-logo





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 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 !
