Fishing spots in Namibia

The fishing is usually excellent all the way along the Skeleton Coast.

At the beginning of the year (Jan 2016) the temperature of the water was sitting around 18 – 22 degrees which coincided with the fish going off the bite.  It was the hottest recorded sea water temperature ever experienced along Namibian’s Skeleton Coast.  A sad sign of our times.

Ian managed to bring in a variety of species along The South area but the majority were all undersized, so we released them back into the sea to grow up a tad.  He brought in a Cob or two for supper in the fishing area 30 odd kilometres past Henties Bay and a couple of nice sized Black Tails along the Tora and Terrace Bay coastline.

You know that it’s a good time to change your fishing spot if the barbel fish start coming out!

Some of our favourite places to fish at in Namibia range from close to leaving the town of Swakopmund, in the various bays, just past Mile 14, Trappies just past Henties Bay, by Rondebos, which has in the past been a winning spot for most and all the way up to Terrace Bay.  The last fishing spot being “Bossie’s Bay” past Terrace Bay.  There is a gravel road to the left just before the road reaches the no entry sign where you’re unable to “just” travel any further North West as it becomes “diamond land” again.  It’s worth booking into Terrace Bay.  To stay there for a day or two and enjoy what the coastline has to offer within the Nature Reserve.

2008

2008 was a brilliant year for the anglers.  We were in Terrace Bay around July, and the Kabeljou were coming out almost with every cast.  They averaged around 60 odd centimetres.  Rondebos was also very active and around Mile 14, past the ablutions on the North side and a few meters past a steel cable that was lying on the ground.  We were happy to catch and release after having one for our braai.  It was great fun!
