Big Fish Sports Fishing Mombasa
Big Fish Sports Fishing Mombasa offers the premier Indian Ocean fishing experience.
Mtwapa Creek, just north of Mombasa is home to ‘Big Fish Sports Fishing Mombasa’ and is the Mecca for big game sports fishing anglers from all over the world.
Each year anglers return to Kenya in search of the elusive “Grander” (marlin over 1,000 pounds).
Mombasa is also a preferred sports fishing destination for novice anglers. With ‘Big Fish Sports Fishing Mombasa’ being well equipped with fish finding GPS and the best and latest tackle to make your fishing trip a truly unique experience.
The blue waters off the Kenya coast' make this location a unique sports fishing destination to catch Billfish species such as, Black Marlin, Striped Marlin and Sailfish.
Besides these, the area provides excellent sports fishing for other pelagic species such as, Yellowfin Tuna, Dorado, King Fish and Barracuda.
With the continental shelf being so close to the coast line; the seabed drops off to over 200 metres, guaranteeing some amazing sports fishing. The deep underwater current pushes up against the shoreline shelf and concentrates large schools of bait fish. This action so close to land, means anglers spend more time sports fishing and less time running back and forth to the fishing grounds. The preferred methods of fishing in these waters are slow trolling live skipjack tuna, or trolling large artificial lures, which are designed to replicate small tunas or baitfish.
Apart from the fishing you might be lucky to see Dolphins swimming along with the boat, Whale Sharks, Manta Rays, Turtles mating!, Humpback Whales (the largest mammal and living thing on the earth - 40/50 tons), Pelicans and who knows what else. The sea is full of surprises.
Our crew have years of experience and have experience fishing on all long the Kenya coast from Lamu in the North to Shimoni in the Pemba Channel to the extreme South. They also have extensive experience fishing in the water off Tanzania and Zanzibar.
We pride ourselves in having a team that is passionate about sustainable sportfishing and engages actively in conservation both on the water and onshore. Our policy is to tag and release all billfish, and other designated endangered species such as Giant Trevally.
We are equipped with Penn, Biscayne and Shimano rods, attached to Shimano Tiagra, TLD , Penn International, and Alutecnos reels. We offer from 3kg to 54kg line strength, and have a wide variety of lures to suit all types of fishing including daytime broadbill fishing, bottom fishing, casting, live baiting and regular trolling.
We invite you to come and try your hand at hooking and landing one of the five magnificent billfish species that is found in the Indian Ocean, or the formidable yellowfin tuna, wahoo or spectacular dorado.
The day we fish the North Kenya Banks, we will use heavy jigging rods and jigs to catch big Amberjacks, Snapper, Grouper and Yellowfin Tuna. Normally we combine the jigging with some trolling for Yellowfin Tuna as our anglers will probably need a break from fishing after some hot action!!
As soon as we hook some yellowfin Tuna with the trolling lures, we drop the jigs right into them. This produces a lot of big fish like Amberjacks and Yellowfin Tuna. We also look for big schools of fish on the sonar and drop our jigs into them while the boat drifts over the spot.
Both techniques used during this trip will guarantee a high adrenaline rush and a lot of fun!
