This half day excursion starts either early morning 7 am departure or 3 pm as we troll for game fish on our way to some fishing grounds in the Bay of St Francis or adjacent seal point or Cape St Francis. A combination of Game and Bottom fishing is done as we find the fish and drop some bait to hook those big ones. Many reef species are good eating fish and a wide variety can be sought off our coast.

We adhere to strict bag size and limits and pride ourselves in always finding the fish. Bring a good dose of enthusiasm and positive attitude as this make the fish bite better, come and enjoy this magnificent trip with us.
