Port Alfred Fishing – Activities in COVID-19

Being an avid fisherman myself and having beautiful beaches, we are promoting the fishing opportunities of our coastline and appreciating the tranquillity of this environment.  Being on the beach, there are amazing spots for the sport of fishing.

Here in the Eastern Cape, providing that you don’t go over your daily quota, we catch a number of species referred to as the basket of fishing. The experience of fishing is not just to catch the fish, but to really connect with the ocean, the waves and the air whether it’s windy or not. Included in this experience is the shore life which is very interesting as you are standing on the beach hoping for the right fish to take your bait or to be on the ocean, deep-sea fishing.

Baits are locally produced and we generally use baits that will attract certain types of fish.

It never ceases to amaze me the variety of fish that can be caught both on the river and in the sea and different spots going at least a 100km west and east swell.

Our beaches here in the Eastern Cape are second to none and the fishing opportunities are numerous, to say the least. The opportunity to walk on the beach and to find your personalized fishing spot is a complete unwind. Come and enjoy the fishing experience with us here in Port Alfred if you are keen to learn and be part of our natural heritage.

Providing the fish is of size and edible we would be happy to cook it for you in the evening. We have various ways of preparation, but we do know how to prepare fish very well. Come and enjoy this pastime experience with us. We look forward to hosting you.  Stay safe.
