Fishing Vacations in the Cape Town Metro, South Africa

photo : Scuba Diving Fishing vacations in the Cape Town Metro area in South Africa can be enjoyed at many of the seaside resort along the Peninsula and False Bay coasts as well as inland. Fishing along the South African coast or in inland rivers and dams is a favourite pastime for many locals and visitors to South Africa. Angling opportunities range from fly fishing to bass fishing, carp fishing, trout fishing and fresh water fishing to deep sea, game fishing and spear fishing to shore angling.

Shore fishing is the perhaps the most popular, accessible form of angling - all you need is a rod and a reel, and a list of marine regulations - with saltwater and fresh water fly-fishing close second favourites. For the more adventurous big game fishing safaris are available in the rich fishing grounds off Cape Point and elsewhere. At least 250 species of fish are caught by sea anglers.

At the Cape of Good Hope - where the Atlantic and Indian Ocean currents meet - the concentration of game fish to be found is greater than anywhere else in the world. The Cape is well-known for its abundance of large tuna, including the albacore, yellowfin and southern bluefin. The large populations of swordfish give rise to international tournaments for big game fishing.

Or catch your own rock lobster / crayfish not more than a kilometre offshore - crayfish cruises can be arranged at many seaside resorts along the Peninsula and False Bay coasts. There are about 750, 000 marine anglers in South Africa and numerous tournaments are organised annually. The infrastructure for angling is therefore excellent, with charter boats, party boats and specialist guides available at most venues.
