Excellent fishing for big Couta right now

 Excellent fishing for big Couta right now

There is  Excellent fishing for big Couta right now, going on up and down the Eastern Seaboard of Southern Africa.

It’s just a matter of finding the right live bait – a small bonito, big shad, big mackerel, and attaching it to a live bait trace – and you are in with a fat chance.

Dead baits can also be fished well for big couta, again using a Mydo Baitswimmer. A long flashy walla walla (ribbon fish) or silky (wolf herring) tied to a Mydo with some 5X #1 trebles is almost a guarantee.

And with the May sailfish run starting up – don’t be surprised to find yourself connected to a crazy wild saily with those baits out the back! Or a late stripey!

To get out to sea and get your own croc couta, contact us for different options in different areas. From Bazaruto to Mazeppa, we can get you out there.
