Agulhas Deep Sea Fishing Charters

Johan van der Walt owns and operates Agulhas Deep Sea Fishing Charters out of Struisbaai, a picturesque old fishing town on the southernmost tip of South Africa. The town is famous for its rich fishing opportunities, and who better to show you around the local waters than Johan, who has been fishing from the town on holidays since he was a child?

Agulhas Deep Sea Fishing Charters operate a 30’ Lee Cat Walk Around that was designed specifically for South African sport fishing. Lee Cat are famous for building strong, good quality vessels, and this one is no exception. A safe and stable boat, it features a particularly high gunwale, giving added peace of mind to all anglers, particularly if there are children on board. Powered by two 250 HP Suzuki engines, this powerful vessel will take you to the fishing grounds quickly, giving you an optimum amount of fishing time, and with a range of navigational electronics and safety equipment on board, it is well equipped to cater for a productive fishing trip.

Fishing with Johan will usually involve bottom fishing around the 6 mile bank before heading off about 27km offshore towards the 12 mile bank, where Yellowtail, Cob and various varieties of bottom and game fish can be found. In the summer you might be in with a chance of finding Cape Salmon and small Tuna as well.

All rods, reels and tackle are supplied on every fishing charter, as is bait and cool drinks for the anglers. All you have to bring is a jacket, a fishing license and something to eat.
