Enjoy fishing South Africa’s magnificent coastline or freshwater dams and estuaries. You can expect to catch anything from big game deep sea fish or the smaller edible saltwater fish, rock and surf fishing or the elusive trout in trophy trout dams nestled in the Winterberg Mountain Range.
Freshwater fishing in South Africa is diverse, taking you to some of the most dramatic settings. Fishing is about where you are, and in South Africa, you could be in glorious mountains surrounded by golden grasslands, or at the side of a lake far away from civilisation.
South African deep-sea fishing is about being out there on the African waters, tasting the moment, in the company of family or friends and a responsible skipper, enjoying the chase and a good fight of something like a good yellowfin tuna out of Hout Bay, Cape Town.
One of the great pleasures of fishing in South Africa is listening to the magical names of the fish themselves: kabeljou, stumpnose, roman, elf, skate, steenbras, panga, fransmadam, galjoen and Atlantic big eye or the broadbill swordfish.
