Our last season before lock-downby 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 strongby 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 weatherby 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.

Holiday Doradoby 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.

Dorado (Mahi) season in full swingby Mike Laubscher (11/24/2019)
The Dorado were very hungry and active, when hooked up they gave us acrobatic aerial displays with some of them jumping off the hook in the process, some were smashing at our lures but missing completely increasing the excitement

Good fishing todayby Mike Laubscher (6/23/2019)
We had an upcountry couple with us on a short charter today, conditions were really nice with a moderate SW wind and seas were nice and flat. The water has got cold now and sits under 20 deg.C and we had a relatively strong reverse current which made bottom fishing a little difficult.

Game Fishing - Past Season Report - 2018/2019by Mike Laubscher (6/06/2019)
With winter in full swing now, I thought it was time to reflect on the past summer season. The season started early with our biggest Dorado of 20kg opening the account on the 1st of October, even more special was that this fish was landed by a young boy
Bottom Fishing is still goodby Mike Laubscher (5/25/2019)
It’s not every day that one can get full quota on a trip, especially in such a short time, in this situation a person must be contentious of regulations and conservation and not take more than the limit that is allowed. My suggestion is to use this time to look for something specific or special, try out new techniques and investigate new areas.
