For 9 months of the year Cape Boat Charters will take you out into the deeper oceanic waters off Cape Point – As a result of two large ocean currents, Benguela and Agulhas mixing, as well as the prevailing winds, nutrient rich waters are found at a place know to locals as the “Canyon” – this area is found close to the continental shelf, and it is here that we target the large tuna!
The four species of tuna we target:
- Big Eye
These tuna can be caught trolling with lures, or by using bait in the warmer blue oceanic water found in the area. It generally takes anything from 30 minutes to 4 hours to land the bigger size tuna
It is not uncommon for us to catch other species of fish out in the deeper waters namely; include Big Eye Tuna, Dorado and Yellowtail.
