Blue Tide Land Based Adventures – Sardine Run

Picture this: you’re in one of the most beautiful and pristine locations that east South Africa has to offer, with a rod in your hand, spinning for some unique saltwater species…and there’s not a boat in sight! For anglers who want to get back to nature, try something new, or are simply wild at heart, Blue Tide Land Based Adventures offers completely land-based incredible angling trips that take place along South Africa’s diverse eastern coastline.

Captain Phil De Jong has been fishing for as long as he can remember. He loves the absolute escapism that land-based angling offers, as well as its ability to transport fishermen of all skill levels to the most remote and pristine locations available to man. On your multi-day trip, he’ll be taking you to the most productive stretch of Hibberdene’s coastline, where you’ll be able to follow the annual sardine run for the chance to hook some special African game fish.

Capt. Phil has carefully selected this destination to provide you with the strongest possible chance of catching unique species that only exist in these waters. This could include local Musselcracker, Kob, Garrick, White Steenbras, and more, as well as world-famous fish such as Giant Trevally and Bonefish. The techniques you’ll be using, as well as the type of bait, have been developed from years of hands-on experience fishing this diverse coastline.

Not only will you be fishing these incredible waters, but you’ll also be able to stay in a local lodge, with all meals, drinks, and amenities provided for you. Capt. Phil knows the best places near this coast, and he’ll arrange everything to ensure that you have somewhere comfortable and relaxing to retreat to after a day of fishing. This includes catering for groups with children aged 12 and above, as well as anglers with physical disabilities.

Your rods, reels, bait, lures, and tackle are included. Join Blue Tide Land Based Adventures and experience the absolute escapism that fishing these waters provides!



About the Captain

Phil De Jong
Hibberdene, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa
I've been a fisherman since I can remember. I love fishing because it takes a person to remote and pristine locations. New adventures and challenges are what keeps a fisherman going back for more. My style and techniques have been developed from fishing the diverse and rough coastline of South and East Africa. Our coastline is blessed with many beaches, bays, cliffs and reefs to fish from. My preferred style is land based fishing, spinning and bait techniques best suited for the target species. Spinning from the shore requires specialized tackle and lures. Surface lures are great fun to catch fish with, but all types of lures have their place and time. Bait fishing is employed when the target species cannot be caught on lure or when conditions are not favorable for lure fishing. Obtaining the freshest and correct type of bait/live bait adds to the challenge of successful bait fishing. Africa's unique fish species found nowhere else are extremely powerful and always rewarding to catch.
