Mighty Fishing Charters

Are you in search of an unforgettable deep sea fishing adventure? Try Mighty Fishing Charters! They are based in Shelly Beach, Margate, and fish from the world-famous Protea Banks. This mesmerizing region is well-known for the quality and quantity of fish that live in these waters. You can catch bottom and game fish all on one trip.

You will fish aboard Mighty I, a 27’ Trim Craft with two 200 HP Yamaha outboard engines. The boat is equipped with a GPS and a Lowrance echo sounder, and contains the necessary safety equipment. There’s enough room for 10 guests if there are kids onboard, or 8 guests if there are only adults.

You will launch at the best fishing time, which is daybreak, and travel to Protea Banks in only 20 minutes. Once you get there, the possibilities are endless. Depending on the weather and the season you might trawl for game fish such as Tuna, Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Kingfish, and Sailfish, or do bottom fishing for Slinger, Protea Bream, Pink Salmon, Englishman Seabream, Scotsman Seabream, and a variety of Rock Cod.

Mighty Fishing Charters launch from Sonny Evans Small Craft Harbour. The boat is dry-launched into the sea by a special 4 wheel drive tractor. You’ll board the craft before launch, meaning you’ll stay dry. The crew will provide you with fishing equipment and clean your catch after the trip.

The Mighty crew has experienced deckhands that will assist you whenever you need them. Get a true sense of South African fishing with Mighty Fishing Charters!

I bought my first boat brand new in 1981 and fished ever since, it is in my blood up to today. I am the skipper of my own boat. I did fish as a charter operator for the last 19 years at S/B due to the fact that most Charters want to catch Game and bottom fish and I do both. I want everyone to be happy and catch fish, as well as make memories to be retold over and over again.
