WELL Good Day All

Compliments of the season to you and may 2016 be a good one for us all.
It’s time to reflect on 2015 and what was achieved…

On the back of a HUGELY successful VOLVO OCEAN RACE 2014/2015 the fish turned up and it’s been Catching Time.

It was right through till June/July and even into August with the arrival of Southern Blue Fin, yes the first time in 18 years of operation with some very special fish.

September was the only slow month but then we had a fantastic WINTER run of YELLOWTAIL down at ROBBEN ISLAND which covered JUNE to OCTOBER however in OCTOBER the TUNA were back and OCTOBER to date have been VERY GOOD.

Apart from the Fishing, even fish on the popper and of course the Southern Blue Fin we were involved in the release of some 54 Turtles and again 2 at a later date which was to me the highlight of the year when one thinks of always taking out of” MOBY DICKS LOCKER” it’s really rewarding to put back so to THE TWO OCEANS AQUIRUIM thanks so much.

2016 has started with a BANG but were land based for a while due to GALE FORCE SOUTH EASTERS. I’m sure it will stabilize and things will return to normal and we will be back out there chasing the big ones.

My Challenge for this year is to put together an INTERNATIONAL for fisherman from all over the world out of HOUT BAY so watch this space were busy with the add which will go out to all my INTERNATIONAL clientele.

We would like to encourage the keen fishing ladies out there to try deep sea fishing with us. See photo’s attached to show other ladies having fun catching Tuna on boardHooked On Africa.
