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!

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.

    Alphards is the the most special offshore fishing bank you will get in the Western Cape… If not in SA. You can expect the find dorrado, various tuna species, including my favorite, yellow fin tuna. Alphards is also known for producing good Marlin. You can find all sorts of bottom dwelling fish from red Roman to Copper Steenbras. Do take care when you catch one of them, as they are on the red list. Justin and his team will explain exactly how to return him safely after a foto. The main purpose of going to Alphards is to target that huge yellow tails. Finding that 15 to 20kg fish is at the order of the day, but be warned.. They will break your back, but pound for pound they are the strongest fish in our ocean. Alphards is a far trip, but worth taking the trip. However Justin and his team go that ekstra mile to make the trip comfortable and extremely safe. The bigger Fishtales 2 recently added to the fleet, makes this trip a must for any fisherman. Get a team together and book a trip.
