Captain
Jean-Francois du Coudray

Member since June 2014

Richards Bay, South Africa

Background
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
Techniques
The boat is setup and allows me to pull 5, but up to 7 lures. Because there is hardly any white water behind the boat, the lures perform well and are pulled close. The angler does most of the work reeling the fish, pictures taken, tagged and released. Celebration time!
