Big Wahoo, Small Marlin, Tuna and a ton of Dorado off Durban by Mike Laubscher (12/30/2020)
Ruben who has been working as a deckhand for us during his school holidays it is his first interaction with a Marlin and he saw it chasing the kona whilst clearing lines and teased it to perfection to get the hook up and so a huge congratulations to him, how awesome for him and his dad to share a memory like this together

Our last season before lock-down by Mike Laubscher (5/19/2020)
Lockdown has been really difficult, at first you keep yourself busy with many projects but eventually you run out of materials and after 8 weeks I find myself highly frustrated, perhaps even a bit angry and definitely concerned about what is going on
Game Fishing season still going strong by Mike Laubscher (3/18/2020)
I anticipate some more Marlin will make an appearance in the next 4-6 weeks before the season makes its annual change and I hope we start to see some Wahoo in bigger numbers along with more Yellowfin Tuna.

Dorado, Wahoo, Tuna and tough weather by Mike Laubscher (1/28/2020)
We saw something really incredible that I have never witnessed off Durban on our way back in a strong west from far North, we came across a shoal of over 200 GT’s from 30-50Kg, they were not scared of the boat but no matter what we offered them they would not bite, observing their behaviour it looked like they were spawning.

First Marlin for the Durban Season on Fat Girl by Mike Laubscher (1/08/2020)
at the end of the trip on the way home with only 1 Dorado in the hatch a small Black Marlin took the inside rigger
Holiday Dorado by Mike Laubscher (1/07/2020)
This hot weather the past few days is caused by the Agulhas current being so close to shore along with the very warm water temperatures and I think a nice cold front will do wonders for the fishing and give the fans and air-conditioners a break.
