Wild Ocean Fishing Charters

Harbour Road
Cape Town WC, South Africa

Wild Ocean Fishing Charters runs fishing trips off the coast of Hout Bay. These waters are brimming with a variety of big game, with Yellowfin Tuna as the main prize. Anglers fishing these waters can also hope to fight the local beauty - Yellowtail - small, but feisty fighter.

When you come fishing with skipper Bruce, he will show you what angling looks like in the wild waters of the ocean. Bruce will welcome you aboard his 25’ Butt Catt boat made for offshore sport fishing. She is equipped with two 115 HP Suzuki engines, that can reach speeds of up to 30 knots. You will be heading between 25 and 35 miles offshore to work your line on the likes of Tuna.

The boat has an ice box, safety equipment, GPS and a fishfinder. Skipper Bruce will provide the fishing gear. You will try out trolling using Shimano Tiagra 50W and 30W reels loaded with backing, and 80lb Ande line. If you want to go for popping and spinning, there are Shimano Twinpower reels loaded with 50lb and 80lb braid. To land Tuna, you will have Daiwa, Shimano and Fin Nor rods at your disposal, and a harness to battle them.

On half day trips, you will have snacks and drinks, while on full day trips, you will have breakfast, lunch, snacks and beverages. There will be just enough travelers to have space for angling and a comfortable ride when chasing the big fish.

Wild Ocean Fishing Charters want you to have a safe, memorable, and fun day on the water. Skipper Bruce has 17 years of fishing in the waters of South Africa, and will make sure to help you land the catch. He will explain the techniques and waters, so that you learn, and have a productive day fishing, all at the same cost.

When packing for the trip, bring sun protection, hats, sunglasses, toes-covering shoes, and warm clothes. If you struggle with seasickness, pack your medications. Also, make sure to take out a fishing license - they are available at any post office. You will also want to bring a camera - the big game is waiting to be caught!
