The Best Fishing in Africa
Black Marlin come to spawn along the Bazaruto Archipelago’s coastline between September and January, with numerous catches over 1000lbs - the average catch is 300 – 600lbs. Blue and Stripped Marlin are also caught during this time of year. Sailfish are found whole year round but best catches are from April to August. Big Blue practises catch and release.

I have had the privilege of fishing with Morgan on a number of occasions and what really stands out is his comprehensive angling knowledge, be it shore-based spinning or bait-fishing, off-shore jigging and popping or big game. It is very seldom that one finds a guide with such wide-spread knowledge and ability.
