Deep Sea Fishing in Mossel Bay

Deep Sea Fishing in Mossel Bay Cob Catches are picking up in Mossel Bay Waters Winter is something of the past. Although we had good catches of  Hake and Red Fish during the winter the Cob was just gone. I am glad to say that during our fishing trips the past few weeks we were lucky to have some good cob catches. On the other side I do not think it is all about luck. Our skippers with years of experience of the Mossel Bay fishing grounds play a great role in taking our trippers to the fish. We expect that Cob will be getting more as we are nearing the summer and the temperature of the sea water will rise. A day out at sea exposes you not only to great fishing,  but also the diverse ecosystem that consists of dolphins, seals, sharks, whales the albatross and a wide variety of birdlife. Come and enjoy a deep sea fishing trip on “Dreamcatcher” or “Nikita”, two best rigged Buttcats in Mossel Bay. The launch and journey is safe and dry, which makes  a carefree day of fishing fun in our famous scenic coastline area. Bookings for Deep Sea Fishing in […]

Here is some interesting information regarding the Romonza for those who already embarked on a trip or those who are planning a trip onboard the Romonza in Mossel Bay. Passenger Boat in Mossel Bay for Island Trips The Romonza was not initially built for what it is used for today. Wim Klapwyk built the yacht to embark on a trip around the world. It took him 7 years to complete the project after which he first only played with it in the bay of Mossel Bay. It was only while doing this that he realized that his wife got motion sickness and the trip around the world only a dream. He then just used the boat to explore the bay and went around Seal Island. People soon started to ask him to take the along when he went around the Island and this was how the Romonza started as a passenger boat. According to Charmaine, Wim Klapwyk asked his children to give him a name for the boat and […]
