"RELEASE" the teenage spirit (pun intended), in the Jeffrey’s Bay waters.
This package is headed up by our very own Johan Cronje, who has been working alongside Duvan since 2018 as a junior guide assist and now holds a strong reputation in the fishing community, having secured his provincial EP U21 colours.
Let Johan take the youngsters out to experience the thrill of catching a fish between 5-100kg.
All trips are local to Jeffreys Bay, the duration of which is approximately 5-6 hours. The package is open to ages 12-18.
The Ragge-tooth shark AKA the Raggie. They are endemic to South Africa and are plentiful, particularly in the Jeffreys Bay region where the big females come to pup! They have a mouth scattered with mighty monstrous teeth, making for an awesome take-home photograph that should be on every bucket list when travelling to South Africa. The fight for one of these sharks may not be as tedious as that of the fight for a bronzie, however, the excitement remains on par as one the sharks use their large bodies and weight of between 20-150kg to their full advantage.
These little guys are awesome to catch! They pull away like a steam train and give a very good account for themselves. They can be quite plentiful and can grow in excess of 250kg! In our waters they are caught up to 20kg and can make a day extremely fun.
Diamond Sting Ray
These fish are magnificent creature of camouflage, a trait that is evident right away when identified. They are fun to catch and can grow large up to 70kg in our areas. They are guaranteed to get the muscles cramping and heart rate up as they use their distinct shape and weight to their advantage.
Jeffreys Bay is a small coastal town in the Eastern Cape known world-wide for its surfing with the annual profest surfing competition taking place here, however it is amongst fisherman a well-known favourite too, and in many professional opinions the best.
The main selling point of Jeffreys Bay is the versatility; it offers a major variety of species, almost always offering a fishing option in the most adverse fishing conditions should they prevail. It is still one of the only areas left in South Africa that 100 pounder kob/mulloway/jewfish are still being caught, attributable to the numerous estuaries that provide a safe breeding space for the big females. Kobs, however, of over 15kgs are still few and far between and require intensive and dedicated targeting that should be communicated to you beforehand to manage your expectations.
We pride ourselves on this honesty that any professional in the industry should hold.
