Good Day all,

January has come, February has gone and March is upon us.
On the fishing front it’s been 2 busy months with few fish, but March has started with a bang, with a number of decent sized Yellowfin (ours 92.6kgs) laced with many more smaller ones just to get you all warmed up.

There have also been a number of Marlin strikes which we have targeted for the past 2 years with 3 confirmed releases and many more ON OFFS which are just as exiting.

Well it looks all set for a cracker of a Tuna season with a good sign of Longfin way up north so for those of you wanting to test yourselves against probably the strongest fighting fish you will ever encounter, get those bookings in with the Cape’s Best Fishing Charter! We’re not the cheapest, but with a 20 year track record like ours, you’re in the best hands.

On the inshore side, it’s been very quiet. The odd Yellowtail, hardly any Snoek, but plenty of Dolphins!
We have just put brand new Yamahas on our vessel EXTRAVAGENCE due to our very full order book this year and when you do as many charters as we do, maintenance and upgrades are paramount to success.
We have 3 groups of International fishermen coming out next week, then another from the USA who is a close friend and colleague of Tred Bartha who has fished with us before. We have another international charter in April and then it’s on to the Gordon’s Bay Classic! Last year to took first position overall in the Classic, let’s see what we can do this year!

This takes us right through till end May when you will probably hear from me again in the meantime check out our Facebook page, Website and updates for all the latest action as we always find the fish First!
