Umnenge Boat based Fishing Charters, Gansbaai

Umnenge Fishing Charters GansbaaiRichard Searle of Umnenge Charters is the only fully compliant and licensed commercial deep-sea-fishing tour operator in the Gansbaai Area. The boat has everything you need for fishing and more importantly, the skipper knows all the good fishing spots. His aim is to make this a memorable fishing trip, with the biggest possible fish caught.

The Umnenge Charters boat is a commercially licensed 18ft z-craft invader with two independent Yamaha 70hp engines. The boat has 68% positive flotation and all the required safety equipment to ensure a trouble free cruise. The boat is fitted with state-of-the-art navigation and sonar equipment including VHF and 28meg radios, and, for your pleasure, a CD player and hi-fi.

The Gansbaai area offers excellent bottom and reef fish. Red roman, hottentots, jaco peaver, carpenter, steenbras, stumpnose and crayfish (in season). There are also game fish, such as geelbek, yellowtail and snoek in season.

If you are a beginner, Richard will do everything to make your trip fun, and to ensure success. If you are an experienced angler, you will find the fishing a technical challenge that is very different from other parts of the coast. Either bring your own licence, or if required, Richard will arrange a fishing licence for you.
