For those who enjoy fishing as much as hunting, there is great fun for all just off our coast in the Indian Ocean. Take a day off from hunting and travel a mere 45 minutes from Base Camp to Kenton on Sea. From Kenton, you will experience a beach launch, an exhilarating run through the breakers and a day of fishing sensation.
We offer both bottom fishing and deep sea trolling giving the angler the option of fishing along our rugged coast or traveling out to the warm Mozambican current. While bottom fishing, anglers will mostly target; Cape Salmon, Red Roman, Scotchman, Cape Stump nose, Sand Fish, Cob and Black Mussel Cracker.
On weather permitting days, trips to the Islands in search of Yellow Tail Tuna for a day of trolling is a must. May thru July is the best time for Yellow Fin Tuna, and August thru October, the best for Yellow Tail Tuna. Anglers can expect bottom fishing to be good throughout the year.
All fishing trips are specialized and must always be booked well in advance to ensure availability and maximum opportunity for success.

What People Are Saying
Great staff, beautiful properties and awesome guides! Thank you for an exceptional safari.~ Jess Stout '15 from
"Thank you again for a wonderful experience. Botswana was spectacular, Linda and Clive were wonderful hosts and their staff was professional and very helpful. John and Thomas had a great time hunting and I thoroughly enjoyed taking pictures - our driver even showed me how to pick truffles! Every day we saw noteworthy animals and the guys got the trophies they were after. As Thomas' first time on safari I do believe he had a wonderful experience and will be back again. As for us, this was our 7th trip with John X and surely will not be our last. John and I made the side trip to Victoria Falls, including a helicopter ride over the falls - breath taking.
Thanks again, and until next time!"
"For years I have heard many stories describing Africa. They were all wrong. The descriptions of the country, the experience and the scenery fell far short of the actual experience. I was moved emotionally and spiritually with the pure beauty of the country and fell in love with the passion of the people. Although
this was our first trip, it will in no way be our last."
“Nuestra experiencia con John X Safaris coordinado por el gran Carl fue increíble, disfrutamos de unos días espectaculares de caza, acompañados por los grandes profesionales Greg y Juan. El trato en la Libela es como si estuvieses en tu casa: inmejorable y comodisímo. Volveremos!”~ Solana Family '13 from
