TYDE ll Fishing Charters

Crown Road St Michaels
Shelly Beach NL, South Africa

We dry launch through the surf and fish for yellowfin and other pelagic fish as well as bottom fish off a very special reef called Prorea banks on a 28 ft lee cat powered by 2 x 140 hp four stroke suzuki outboards.

We mostly fish for Yellowfin Tuna. For our area it is common to catch even 20 different species in one day, including Marlin, Salifish, Yellowfin, King Mackerel, Mussel cracker, Rock Cod, Englishman, Pink Salmon, Geelbek and many more. We have fish throughout the year.

We do deep sea fishing/trolling, bottom fishing, light tackle, fly fishing (bring your own equipment), popping (ZAR 100 per lost lure) and spearfishing (bring your own equipment. Trips are tailor made, and we can always suggest options if you are not sure what the best one is at the moment.

Fishing licenses are not included in price, you can buy them for ZAR 60-70.
