Struisbaai Fishing Charters And Accommodation

Ready for some exciting, reel-screaming action in some of the most gorgeous waters of the southern coast of Africa. Struisbaai Fishing Charters will put you on the hottest bite far off the coast, or near, while providing impeccable service.

Join Captain Andre Botha on board of his 22’ Carrycat boat. She’s quite spacious due to her catamaran hull and can easily fit 6 anglers fishing at the same time. The engines are twin Hondas, providing a total of 180 HP of thrust – due to her hull design she can reach a top cruising speed of 25 knots.

Capt. Andre will take you fishing all over the southern coast, from the inshore waters right near Struis Bay all the way to the deep blue waters where you’ll target pelagics. You can fish with live bait if you want to, the onboard live bait well will keep it active and appetizing long after it was caught.

If you’re looking to hook some prestigious predators, trolling for Marlin or Mahi Mahi is an option, the outriggers available will extend your reach and allow for more lines in the water. Fans of flexing their fighting muscles can head inshore where they’ll wrestle with the mighty Yellowtail Amberjack. Bottom feeders, like the Yellowtail Snapper, can be caught fishing the numerous wrecks and reefs that dot the coastline.

If you’re coming from distant lands, you can book accommodations with Struisbaai Fishing Charters – stay with them for up to a week! There are several self-catering houses with 1, 2, or 4 bedrooms in each. Contact the captain to work out the details in advance.

If you’re an avid spearo, and bring your own equipment, Capt. Andre will gladly take you to some of the secret hotspots for spearfishing.

So, get ready for some unforgettable angling with Struisbaai Fishing Charters in the stunning waters off the coast of South Africa!
