When someone mentions “Mozambican Getaway” what are the first thoughts that come to mind?
Tropical paradise… white sandy beaches… diving…and fishing! Mozambique has become quite famous for being one of the most extraordinary fishing destinations in Africa, if not the globe!
Being a tropical paradise not too far from South Africa, Mozambique has so much to offer a variety of people, especially the passionate angler. Boasting spectacular catches of Black Marlin, Barracuda, Tuna, Mackerel and Queenfish, it’s no wonder Mozambique, Inhambane in particular, is high up on any fisherman’s destination bucket list.
Whether it’s offshore fishing along the coastline or simply some rock and surf fishing for a great catch of giant trevally, pompano or barracuda, fishing in Mozambique is nothing short of remarkable!
When is the best time to fish?
Well a good catch is guaranteed all year round, but for those looking for the ULTIMATE catch for the Black Marlins or barracuda, the ideal time to visit falls between October and January!
What fish species in particular can an angler catch?
The most popular species found especially around the Inhambane area include Marlin, Sailfish, Barracuda, Wahoo, Dorado, Yellow-fin Tuna, Kingfish, Queenfish, Prodigal Sun and Rainbow Runners.

- A deep sea fishing rod (which are generally shorter and stronger than normal rods)
