Game-fishing in the waters off the Kowie (Port Alfred) is largely under-utilized, although Marlin are regularly sighted and the odd unit has been caught over the years.
There is an abundance of Tuna – Yellow-fin and Skipjack – as close in as eight miles off-shore. Bait fish is readily available although trolling is mostly preferred.
For the light – tackle enthusiast we recommend you try trips to the “Cray traps” for some exciting tussles with large Dorado (mahi – mahi).
And if you have never hooked or landed a “dirty – fighter” Yellow-tail, join us on a special trip to Bird Island – an experience never to be forgotten!
Because of the specialized nature of these trips, forward planning is necessary, considering weather, time of the year and sea conditions.
We have two suitably rigged deepsea craft, Falucia 3 (Kei Marine Scorpion) and “Blackfish” (newly rigged
30ft Burr Cat). Skippered by Darren de Bruin and assisted by experienced crew. Our outfit / boats are correctly registered as Charter Boats.
