Michelle Deep Sea Fishing Charters

South Africa is the perfect destination for your next visit – gorgeous beaches, exciting culture, and amazing fishing right off the coast! Michelle Deep Sea Fishing Charters, led by Skipper Wimpie Steenkamp, will show you just why SA is one of the hottest fishing destinations in Africa.

He’ll take you out into the deep blue sea aboard his 24’ Buttcat. Her catamaran hull design allows for ample space on the deck, for you and 5 more anglers. She might be less than 30’ long but don’t be fooled, there’s a lot of fishing power on board. Outriggers to give you an edge when trolling, a fighting chair so you can strap in for the toughest battles, and a live bait well to keep your baitfish appetizing – everything you need to hook up the biggest trophy fish!

Skipper Wimpie will put you on proven fish havens off the coast of Struisbaai. You can go after a wide range of species local to these waters, from Geelbek and Kob, across Garrick and Bonito, all the way to Black Marlin and Yellowfin Tuna. You can land many more species in these waters! The best part is, you can be on the fish within 15 minutes of leaving the dock – depending on the species you want to target.

Everyone keeps what they catch – you keep what you land, the skipper keeps what he lands. Skipper Wimpie will provide you with Shimano-made tackle, as well as expert advice and help with anything you need.

Pack a camera and book a trip with Michelle Deep Sea Fishing Charters today. You’ll want to share pictures of your South African adventure will all of your friends!

I am a passionate Skipper operating only one boat and I am the sole Skipper of my boat you can be sure that on every trip I will be taking you to the best spots for the given weather conditions to catch a full quota. There are off course days that I don’t catch the full quota, but that day is yet to come. I grew up in this region and have been a passionate angler from childhood days and NEVER stopped being an angler from shore and boat (deep sea) in my spare time. I've always taken part in angling competitions and am very competitive by nature. I usually don’t give up and only stop when I have reached my goal. The reason why I prefer to be the sole skipper for my boat is to ensure a memorable experience for my clients and have them depart from the boat with only the best catch! From 1 December 2023 I am in a partnership with Henk Aggenbach. He is also a very qualified skipper who charters with me/ or on his own.
