Fish Tales Alphard Bank Jigging Charter
Only available from January till March
Rated 5/5 by guests on Facebook, Google & Tripadvisor
This trip is subject to the minimum PAX reached for the day.
Fish Tales is a purpose built 28FT twin hull fishing machine of a boat, packed with Raymarine electronics.
The Alphard bank is a magical place! Almost 40 Nautical Miles from the nearest land, situated on the Agulhus bank this reef comes up to 16m at its shallowest pinnacle.
Its remoteness makes it a fisherman’s paradise, largely untouched by the masses of nearshore fisherman. It attracts large schools of baitfish, in turn attracting pelagic species in unprecedented numbers.
If you love catching fish on surface lures or jigging, this is one for the bucket list! Join Fish Tales on a jigging charter to the Alphard Bank.
Spinning, jigging, popping, bait fishing, live bait fishing, fly fishing… You can do it all here.
Major species include: Yellowtail, Yellowfin tuna, Bonito, Bronze whalers, Silver fish, Red steenbras, Red roman, Red stumpnose, Kob (Kabbeljou), Geelbek (Cape Salmon) & Marlin.
