Big Game Sport Fishing Charters for Yellowfin tuna from Hout Bay, Cape Town.
For us fishing is not just an occupation, it's an obsession!
Obsession makes history in South Africa
Three triple figure yellowfin tuna, officially weighed, taken in one season over November/December 2012, the first ski boat to do so in the history of angling in South Africa.
Captain Dave onboard OBSESSION catches the largest officially weighed yellowfin tuna on rod and reel in South African waters at 110 kgs winning the 2012 Tuna Derby and smashing the All Africa Record!
2012 Tuna Derby Winners
The tuna derby is fished annually out of Hout Bay in November and is the most prestigious tuna fishing competition in the country. The event is well sponsored, organized and attended with most of the serious offshore anglers hotly contesting to take home the first prize. The 2012 first prize, a 465 Seacat with twin 40 yamaha outboards on the back.
3 Triple Figure Yellowfin
In the Cape many anglers fish a lifetime trying to break the magic 100kg mark, to catch a true triple figure yellowfin tuna and most do not succeed. It is likely that less than 20 anglers in SA have officially weighed a yellowfin tuna over 100kgs. For a single angler to take two in one season is phenomenal. Captain Dave managed to achieve this in the 2012 tuna derby competition fished out of Hout Bay, with first and second placed fish weighing 110kgs and 102.3kgs. Subsequently Obsession has taken three more 100 kg tuna. With five 100kg tuna taken by Two Oceans Sport Fishing Charters it is easy to see why Obsession is South Africa’s top tuna charter boat!
