Fishing the Deep
Vamizi Island is a fish Eden with over fifty mainstream fish species.
Present in the Vamizi seas - the majority all year round - are a huge variety of big game fish, such as wahoo, yellowfin tuna, greater trevally, sailfish and marlin.
With a kilometre deep drop-off just off the coast, the Vamizi fishing grounds lie less than thirty minutes from the lodge, making even half a day’s fishing highly productive.
Our professional fishermen are masters of their trade who know the Vamizi seas intimately. They understand each fish species’ habits and movements and how weather, seasons, water temperatures and tides will affect the day’s outcome.
They also have all the skills: from jigging and popping to live-bait fishing and, for the more discerning, salt water fly fishing. It is recommended that guests bring their own fly-fishing equipment.
Backed up by an almost obsessive team, who literally sing the fish in from the decks of a 28ft Magnum, as well as quality equipment, the Vamizi fisherfolk are confident enough to guarantee their clients fantastic game fishing.
More than deep satisfaction for the serious fisherman, Vamizi fishing is also great fun for first-timers. The seas are fabulous - you're more than likely to see dolphins or whales on the way - and (no pressure) you're pretty well expected to bring back supper, or at the very least, tuna sashimi, for everyone.
