Hi , following in @matt85 Big Bore Addiction Group , with permission I have decided on starting a Fishing Addiction Group . Most of us hunting folk enjoy our fishing as well.

Please post fish that you have caught on either fly tackle or conventional tackle

I am an avid fisherman , fishing mostly deep sea for pelagic species , let me begin with this magnificent dog tooth tuna caught off the northern Mozambique coast line . More pic's to follow .

I have a fly fishing addiction- but I have managed to put it on hold for Africa this year!
 
Mexico is on my list of fishing destinations.
If you decide to go to South Baja and fish the sea of cortez let me know, I can tell you a couple companies to STAY AWAY from, you will be wasting your time. You will catch lots of fish with them but none of the monsters. The rooster above was caught with a local that spoke no english out of Bahia de Los Suenos. The pics below are the average of what we caught with one of those companies a lot further north

@Pawprint Safaris Man Pieter those are some seriously nice bass. It's easy here in the US to not realize that not only have Largemouth (and I think smallmouth as well) been introduced to South Africa, but with a climate like that the largemouth in particular must really flourish. What is the main forage they eat in those ponds?

They mostly feed on Tilapia. Yes we have large and small mouth. The smalls being scarcer.

Good morning. I'll take all of them actually. Whats the next step? Thanks, Derek
Have a look af our latest post on the biggest roan i ever guided on!


I realize how hard the bug has bit. I’m on the cusp of safari #2 and I’m looking to plan #3 with my 11 year old a year from now while looking at my work schedule for overtime and computing the math of how many shifts are needed….

I'd like to get some too.

My wife (a biologist, like me) had to have a melanoma removed from her arm last fall.

Hallo Marius- do you have possibilities for stags in September during the roar? Where are your hunting areas in Romania?
