I have been fishing since I was 5 years old in Durban and have fished many places around the world and in South Africa, but Durban is my home waters. I fished competitive for many years and I have been running my own charters since 2008 with 2 companies and 2 boats, fish a variety of styles and target a variety of fish species in both Salt and Fresh water, have many published articles in several magazines on fishing. Love nature and outdoors, Am very conservation minded and have a passion for birds. I am crazy about big Tuna, Marlin Fishing and Game Fishing, and also love light tackle spinning, am a total lure junkie. Represented my province in fly fishing for many years and am also pro staff for Rapala/Shimano. I want to write a book on fishing one day. 3 items left on my fishing bucket list, guess then a new bucket list will be in order. As a writer I have my own quote: "I love taking people fishing because it releases their inner child, and in doing so keeps my inner child alive."

Mike and his deckhand Kurt were extremely professional. It was the first time out to sea for most of our group and we all had a great time and look forward to coming back again. We left the bay at 6am to fish the backline but with the dredger busy in that area Mike knew it would be better to head further out to deeper water where we could secure some better fish. We picked up a lot of sand soldier which eventually became a nuisance so Mike moved us along to a better spot where we were rid of the peckers. I personally managed a good size rockcod, a personal best fish and a great fight on the light spinning gear we were using. Other good eating fish of size were a copper bream, englishman and slinger. We also got a few undersize fish off the reef which were released and lots of trigger fish, banana fish, lizard fish and other by catch which was some fun to reel in but unfortunately didn’t alllow us to keep our bait in the water for longer to give the bigger fish a chance to eat. Unfortunately despite the great conditions the bigger fish were just not interested in taking a chomp. All in all a great time and an excellent trip with excellent guidance by the crew, I highly recommend a trip with Mike and look forward to heading out with him again.

An absolutely fantastic day. The boat is spacious, cabin, toilet. At certain times we had 9 rods in the water. The tackle is top class ad we caught a 3.5kg and 15kg yellow fin plus a 12kg Wahoo.

My family from NZ and UK were in SA for a 2 week trip, bit of beach, sun and Kruger to show them this beautiful country. One of the bucket list items was a bit of game fishing, as although they are keen fishermen, they have not done this before, so something a bit different.
After a bit of research on line, found Blue Water Charters. Good reviews on a number of sites so gave Mike (the skipper) a call to set it up as we needed a harbour cruise first, drop off my Mum back to shore, then head out to sea for the fishing. No problem with tailor made package to suit the charter needs.
We joined the boat in the morning, and met Mike and Kurt, his deckhand. It was a very calm day, little swell and zero chop. The harbour cruise was relaxed, with both Mike and Kurt imparting a lot of local knowledge about Durban, fishing and we got to see some dolphins cruising along side. After an hour we stopped back at the jetty and dropped of Mum, after which we continued out to sea. Straight out the harbour Mike and Kurt set the lines, 9 of them in a pattern ..and off we go. I think the trawl speed was up a bit due to the flat seas, to try and get an aggressive pattern going? After a few hours we got a hook up, where Mike coached my niece in trying to land it. However it shook the hook just before we could bring it on board. Still an experience for an 8 year old sitting in a game chair though! Despite the best efforts of Mike we didn’t get any action until the last hour as we were heading home, double hook up! The crew cleared the remaining lines, and after some serious hard work, they both landed Dorado’s, one of them just under 12kg. By this time we should have been back in port and I expected Mike to keep the lines in and head home. But he put the lines back out and turned back towards the hook up area, and then it was my turn to land one. Now it was time to head back in. Kurt kindly filleted the fish for us and bagged it up after we were tied up again. Really enjoyable trip with a skipper who has a passion for it and understands it’s all about the experience, who went the extra mile, and Kurt, who is super chilled and really enjoys making it a great day for you. And for those who fish, we had zero gear failures, no busted tackle or knots failing, and the rods and reels are in really good condition. Great day out, one of the highlights of the holiday, and I will def be booking with Mike again in the future.
