When you are next in Durban on pleasure or business, why not take a break and head out into the Indian Ocean for some great sun-tropical deep sea fishing. Durban is a safe and easy harbour to launch from to get out to the where the big fish are.
Deep sea fishing from Durban also offers some reef fishing. Dirty Boots has been searching some years now for a reliable charter company and the above list is what we found. There is no greater feeling than experiencing that first big bite and the excitement of running reels. Deep sea fishing was not traditionally a family activity but more and more the moms and the kids are joining in the fun.
The following fish are often caught while fishing off shore from Durban: dorado, tuna, marlin, sailfish and mackerel.
As they say in Afrikaans – STYWE LYNE! Which means tight lines when translated directly. Nothing like freshly caught fish for dinner, remember just one is enough to feed the family, for the rest take a picture for facebook and release please.
