The Captain’s Log – March 2015 – Newsletter


All of our trips since the last update have been to the TUNA GROUNDS with most yielding good results apart from those weather enforced days down to Robben Island or CAPE POINT.

The LONG FIN made a welcome appearance all of a good size but as quickly as they arrived they disappeared again.

We did a PELAGIC BIRDING TRIP the first for a while with some good results including 2 SPECTACLED PETRELS.

On the inshore side the SNOEK seem to have gone AWOL and the YELLOWTAIL seem to make an appearance every time the weather allows the boats to get out.

So we continue to stay ahead of the pack finding the long fin FIRST, returning with YELLOWFIN numbers above average and ensuring that our PELAGIC BIRDING enthusiasts get what they came to see.

Again we have had some great sightings, a SPERM WHALE, a fantastic DORADO by my trusted TWO IC JAMES on a spinner, a host of PELAGIC BIRDS and FISH of course.

So for those of you wanting FISH look no furtherHOOKED ON AFRICA FISHING CHARTERS the CAPE’S number ONE operation, longest standing, always first on the fish if not first to find the fish, quality boats, tackle, skippers and crew all backed up with a track record to speak for itself.

We also captured some images of the Cape Town wildfires fire that caused widespread devastation to vegetation and animals. With so much water around us, it was one of those times where one felt much safer in water rather than on land. Spare a thought for all those effected and thanks to all those who were able to help.
