For those who enjoy fishing as much as hunting, there is great fun for all just off our coast in the Indian Ocean. Take a day off from hunting and travel a mere 45 minutes from Base Camp to Kenton on Sea. From Kenton, you will experience a beach launch, an exhilarating run through the breakers and a day of fishing sensation.
We offer both bottom fishing and deep sea trolling giving the angler the option of fishing along our rugged coast or traveling out to the warm Mozambican current. While bottom fishing, anglers will mostly target; Cape Salmon, Red Roman, Scotchman, Cape Stump nose, Sand Fish, Cob and Black Mussel Cracker.
On weather permitting days, trips to the Islands in search of Yellow Tail Tuna for a day of trolling is a must. May thru July is the best time for Yellow Fin Tuna, and August thru October, the best for Yellow Tail Tuna. Anglers can expect bottom fishing to be good throughout the year.
All fishing trips are specialized and must always be booked well in advance to ensure availability and maximum opportunity for success.

What People Are Saying
"Words cannot express the amazing, incredible, awesome experience I've had. My PH, Greg, and tracker, Bless, were brilliant. I learned so much from both of them. I thank them for sharing their knowledge. The animals were vast and stunning. So many! I almost learned how to spot them and know what they were! John X Safaris does such an excellent job with all aspects of the trip - From the hunting, the service, the accommodations, the food, and the game drives. I did not have one bad day or even one bad minute. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart."~ Cari Smith '14 from

"My June 2014 hunt with your group should be considered a once in a lifetime event, a dream come true. I cannot thank you and your entire team for the hospitality, friendship, professionalism - the comments could go on and on. Your team took care of every detail. This is too awesome of a trip not to share with my family. I will be bringing my daughter out next June to allow her this incredible experience. Thanks again and I look forward to seeing you soon."~ Mike Jarvis '14 from
