Unfortunately These did not Survive the Fight, then again they were on 6kg and 12kg line respectively, when most get away.


The estuary offers a full range of species taken on fly or light tackle from Grunter, Kingfish, Cuta, Bonefish too name but a few. With over 20 square kilometers of tidal water to explore. Kingies are prone to small spoons or light coloured clouser fly’s, while Mangrove red Snapper can’t resist small plugs offered to them along the peat banks and a fresh live bait always produces the goods.
From the shore larger spoons and plugs will have you anchored into some solid Kingfish and Cuta, with the lighter tackle hooked into the never say die Pompano. Kite fishing is an option with Billfish taken in the old day’s from the Pomene Rocks. One of my favorites is fishing for Stumpnose into the rising moon with the setting sun at your back using crab legs or the ever-present sea lice.
You may prefer to patrol the back line on one of the Fishing Surfski’s available to hire or bring your own. Again the gamefish are at your beck and call.
Pomene Skiboat fishing must be one of the world’s best destinations with the Mozambique Channel closer to the coastline then anywhere else along the African coast. The Gamefish species are prolific from Tuna to Wahoo to Billfish all within a stone throw from the back line to no more then 6 miles out to sea. Bring your own boat or speak to your Host about hiring his boat and his 50 years of local knowledge. Please release what doesn’t make the pot!


For The Pot!


Snorkeling in and around the submerged tree stumps in the Estuary you will enjoy sightings of Firefish, Angelfish, Stonefish, Shrimpfish, Sea Horse, the list goes on!
A day’s outing to Pomene Point and the rock pools will have you swimming amongst baitfish washed over on the high tide waiting the next tide to escape again into the predator’s jaws over the ledge.
The local Dive School offers scuba charters at a nominal rate where you will hear and probably utter the words yourself; “Awesome!!”, “Amazing!!”, “As good as any where in the world and that is saying something!!”
