Bingo Fishing Charter Watamu

Bingo Fishing Charters takes you after some of the biggest names of sport fishing. Come chase Blue, Black, and Striped Marlin, wrestle with Yellowfin Tuna, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, or go after Swordfish and Sailfish. It’s any angler’s dream!

The Kenya coastline has come to be known as the finest fishery in Africa, as the many All-Africa Sport Fishing records set here testify. Some of the best and most trusted hotspots lie just out off Watamu, where you can reel in numerous varieties of deep sea fish species owing to the natural contours right off the Milango (Creek).

You can get Billfish throughout the year, but there are some months you shouldn’t miss. September and October fish well for big Black Marlin on live bait, massive Tuna, and Wahoo. December to March is known as the best season for Sailfish and Marlin.

The crew will help you out whether you want to troll lures or live bait, or do some bottom fishing and deep dropping for Snappers or Swordfish. They have the local knowledge and a stable vessel to take you where the fish are.

‘Bingo’ is a 20’ custom-built Sportfisherman that carries all the equipment and tackle you need. She can take up to two anglers. ‘Bingo’ features Raymarine navigational electronics, a VHF Radio, outriggers, downriggers, a fighting chair, Tuna tubes, Kristal fishing electric deep drop reels, and safety equipment.

When packing for the trip, remember to bring food and drinks, a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, and a camera. Get your fishing buddy and go smash that record!
