Your personal services from your Captain, Jean-Francois (John), will secure your bookings for the season in the Marlin Mecca of South-Africa. Richards Bay offers the best area and safe launches, from a sheltered port.

The 43ft Sportfisher vessel is well equipped with Shimano Rod and Reels together with Pulsator, Mouldtec etc Lures. The boat is equipped with Navigation software to reach the fishing waters without wasting time. It has Air Condition, galley, toilet on board for your comfort.

We fish with 5 but a max 7 rods out the back, thus increasing our hook-up rate. With a large deck space, we can accommodate Stand-up tackle as well.

We practice tag and release and all our bill-fish are set free to grow for another day. Our Marlin season starts in September and runs well into June of the following year, weather permitting.

We also cater for general game fishing and bottom fishing. So book early, enjoy a boat that has proven itself over the last 12years fishing out of Richards Bay.

About the Captain

Jean-Francois du Coudray
Richards Bay, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa
Member since June 2014
From a tender age, started fishing on the fishing ledges in Mauritius. When moved to RSA I could not resist the game fishing available on the East Coast of RSA, up to Mozambique. An avid game fisherman, have been Marlin fishing on sport fishers for the last 12 years. We have fished in competition and the many successes triggered me to become a Boat captain/charter. We run off the Port of Richards Bay, and in summer time, the warm Mozambique current brings an abundance of bait fish together with Marlins in the area. There is an abundance of MahiMahi (Dorado) from December, Tuna, Wahoo, with Striped Marlins kick starting the bill-fish season
