Laurens makes sure your trips are fun and successful!
Techniques
The aim is to catch fish and one must do what is needed to ensure that the reels screams. knowledge of your area is an advantage. For game fish we trawl, drift with dead or alive bait, trawl plastic lures, spin with spoons / plugs. For bill fish we trawl kona's or dead / live bait.

Mar 30, 2015 Maputo
The first half of March 2015 produced very good catches of Dorado, wahoo, yellow fin tuna and good marlin action of Ponta do Ouro. 95% of the fish were caught on PULSATOR lures trawling offshore in the deeper purple blue waters with water temperatures averaging around 27.5 degrees. We mainly trawled konas in the 30 to 50 pounds class. The Louies exciter lure produced the most fish and is my personal preferred PULSATOR lure. This lure need very little speed and perform well at high speed too, "smokes" like a steam train and "swim" with a left/right motion giving it a live like action. I was fortunate enough to see many a dorado coming in with great speed attacking these lures with reels screaming soon afterwards. Catching dorado this time of year is very "late" as they normally frequent our waters around November & December. This might be a good indication that the season might be late giving as the chance for good billfish action still to come. With this in mind, we are looking at working the deeper offshore waters of Inhaca Island / Santa Maria for Mr. Billfish. Fish we caught with the Louies exciter PULSATOR lures, to name but a few species, dorado, tuna, wahoo, cuta, marlin and sailfish. The fishing inshore has been slow with cuta, prodigal son, yellow fin tuna and dorado coming out using bait. With you, our valued customer in mind, custom boat charters and packages to suite your fishing needs are available on request. We offer a variety of daily charters, from 4 hours, half or full day, 50km offshore, night fishing, spear fishing and our very popular marlin explorer BIG fish charters from Santa Maria / Inhaca Island. In addition to fishing charters, we are offering boat transfers from Maputo to Santa Maria / Inhaca Island return trips, whale & dolphin watching, snorkel trips, sunset cruises and accommodation options are available.
