Mike a self confessed lure fishing junkie is the founder and owner of
Adventure Fishing Safaris and grew up fishing in Durban Harbour
and was one of the original Fly Fishing Pioneers in Durban Harbour back in the day.
Mike was the first Charter and Guide in Durban to practice Catch and Release
and this conservative ideal is still at the foundations of the operation and
compulsary for all fish caught on fly or spinning along with a specific list
of species that are mandatory to release no matter how they were caught.
ALL OUR SPINNING AND FLY FISHING IS STRICTLY CATCH, PHOTO, RELEASE
Spinning. Light Jigging, Light Tackle and Drop Shot are really interactive ways to target these predators, and the takes are explosive and adrenalin pumping. For those with little or no experience we can have you up to speed quickly and enjoying your fishing.
Fly Fishing is far more technical and you need to know how to cast a fly rod before you choose this option.
If you are looking for a Marlin Fishing, Big Game Fishing, Game Fishing and Tuna

About targeting Game Fish on Lure or on
We have a good variety of fish species we can target from Springer and GT's
in the Harbour to Yellowfin Tuna and Dorado Offshore in the summer months.
Most of the year we have Bonnies around which are great fun on light tackle,
spinning or with a fly rod.
Although we have hooked up Sailfish on fly offshore it is an extremely
difficult fish to target and even more difficult to land.
In the Harbour and at Kosi Lakes we target the fish by spinning lures or
casting a fly, when heading out offshore in addition to spinning and fly
fishing we can also target fish with light jigging or troll lures and baits
with light tackle.
Durban Harbour Game Fishing
The Game Fish in the harbour are seasonal from September to March, but there are also many resident species that can be targeted using bait and light tackle.
If required, we can also arrange accommodation for you.
Durban Inshore and Offshore Game Fishing
We have a wide variety of species inshore and offshore in Durban. Inshore
there are a number of species that can be targeted almost all year round,
offshore species will mostly be Tuna and Dorado in the summer months.
Kosi Lakes Game Fishing
Estuary Fishing at Kosi Lakes Kosi Lakes is a pristine Saltwater Lake System

You are required by law to have in your possession a valid fishing license on any saltwater fishing trip. You only require a standard fishing licence which must be in your name and is available at any South African Post Office.
You do not require the additional boat fishing permit as only one person on the boat is required to have this and this is held by the skipper.
Due to current legislation we are not able to supply you with a fishing license on the day
NB: Should you fail to bring this along we will not be held responsible for any fines.
