Outrageous Fishing – Reel-a-Lure

With Outrageous Fishing, you will be able to battle some of the most exciting fish species around. All you have to do is head down to Houtbay and Millers Point to run deep and make a great catch possible.

Your boat for the day will be the ‘Reel-a-Lure,’ a beautiful 23’ Ace Craft that was recently restored and comes powered by twin 140 HP Suzuki engines. With enough room for up to 4 anglers and professional accessories and top-notch gear, the Reel-a-Lure is ideal for a productive day on the water. She features a full set of electronics, a restroom, an ice-box for the catch, and outriggers.

The Reel-a-Lure is operated by Skipper Byron, who will take you out for Marlin, Sharks, and Tuna, as well as many other species. You will be able to try your hand at fly fishing for Snoek and Yellowtail, spend your day fishing the reefs for Red Roman, Cape Salmon, and Cob, or enjoy the world-class Tuna spearfishing.

The finest reels by Shimano, along with rods, tackle, bait, and lures, will be provided for your trip. You will need to bring all the necessary fly fishing and spearfishing equipment if needed. Once you’re done fishing, the first mate will clean your catch for you. Please note that tips are highly appreciated!

Your lunch and drinks are also welcome on board the Reel-a-Lure.

Outrageous Fishing is owned and operated by Skipper Byron Ashington. Byron skippers the Reel-a-Lure. His other charters are skippered by long-time captains and friends. The "Depth Charge" is helmed by Kevin Miles while trips on the Agulhas are run by Waaiz Peterson. All three men are experienced and dedicated to providing a quality service. Byron has been fishing his entire life and has over 30 years of experience on the water, particularly when it comes to deep sea charters. Byron has been a skipper since 1987 and fishing off Cape Town since 1984, with a number of South African and All Africa records to his name, as well as a World Record. He started his own charter company in 1999. Byron says, "I was born into an angling family, and have been angling for over 30 years in the recreational, commercial, and charter sides of angling... Having reached my goals in competitive angling, I now get a thrill out of helping experienced and inexperienced anglers to catch their dream fish..."
