Mighty Fishing Charters

Shelly Beach
Margate NL, South Africa

Mighty Fishing Charters provide unforgettable deep sea fishing adventures off the South Coast of Kwazulu Natal, South Africa. They are situated in Shelly Beach, Margate, and fish from the world famous Protea Banks located 7 km from the shore. This beautiful region is famous for the quality and quantity of fish that call it home. You can catch bottom and game fish all on one trip.

You will fish aboard Mighty I, which is a 30a foot Gen - Cat with two 200 HP Yamaha outboard motors. The boat is equipped with a Lowrance echo sounder and a GPS, and contains the necessary safety equipment. It is licensed to carry up to 12 people, but the crew prefers to take up to 10 as they want everyone to fish in comfort.

You will launch at daybreak as this is considered the best fishing time, and travel to Protea Banks in only 15 minutes. From there, your possibilities are endless in terms of the fish you can catch. Depending on the season and the weather, you might trawl for game fish such as Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Kingfish, Sailfish and Marlins, or do bottom fishing for Slinger, Englishman Seabream, Scotsman Seabream, Protea Bream, Pink Salmon, and a variety of Rock Cod.

Mighty Fishing Charters launch from Sonny Evans Small Craft Harbour situated at Shelley Beach, where you will board the craft before launch. The boat is dry-launched into the sea by a special 4 wheel drive tractor meaning you stay dry on launch and even on your return. The crew will provide you with Gold Penn International reels - 30,50 and 80, with balanced wheeled rods and TLD 25 Shimano reels with matching rods.

The Mighty crew have experienced deckhands that will assist you in every aspect of your trip, including providing as much assistance as you might need in order to make your trip a success and a lasting memory. They will even unhook your fish for you, and then fillet your game fish and gut your bottom fish!
