Top 13 Hosted Fishing Destinations

Every year our hosted trips become increasingly popular and sell out very quickly. This is due to them being cheaper than travelling as a single angler, the expert advice, the experience of our hosts, and the exclusive destinations we have. Below we have listed our top 13 hosted trips, in no particular order.

Crocodile Bay fishing resort – Costa Rica 

Every year our customers achieve unbelievable results on this hosted big game fishing trip.  Many personal best Marlin and near-record sized Roosters have been caught by anglers who have joined us on this fishing holiday

The fishing on offer at Crocodile Bay is very varied and appeals to many different fishing types from fly fishermen to lure anglers. The offshore fishing offers many different options too, including trolling big Marlin lures and rigged baits for the Billfish. Whilst fishing offshore you will come across huge shoals of Tuna and Dorado which can be caught either with lures or by fly fishing and the standard trolling.

Mefjord – Norway

The fishing around in Mefjord benefits from a huge run of Skrei Cod during the early season. The Skrei Cod then give way to huge shoals of Coalfish that push in the fjords searching out bait shoals to feed on.

As the season progresses the Halibut then start to wake up and this is a perfectly located camp to take advantage of the grounds that Halibut look for. Other smaller species can be found in this area and well worth targeting including fish such as the Scorpionfish, Plaice, Dabs, and the lesser-caught Tadpole fish. Sea fishing in Mefjord really does offer lots of potentials to tick many species off your lists.

Christmas Island – Kiribati

Christmas Island fly fishing has something for all anglers. There’s fly fishing to suit both complete beginners right through to more experienced anglers. Christmas Island fly fishing gives you the opportunity to catch a vast array of species. These species include amazing numbers of Bonefish.

Even novice anglers can easily learn the craft of fly-fishing and catch 10 plus fish a day. For the experienced fly angler, the opportunity to cast your fly at large Bonefish also awaits. For anglers keen on the challenge of Trevally, (Giant, Golden, Blue Fin, and Striped) the guides at Christmas Island are highly skilled in their pursuit.

Palmas De Cortez – Mexico

Our Palmas De Cortez Mexico destination is one of the hottest big game fishing destinations around the world. For over 10 years we have been running hosted trips to this destination and each year it just gets bigger. The offshore species will include Marlin, Sailfish, Tuna, and Dorados. These can all be targeted on the same day which is a major pull for the sea of Cortez.

The inshore fishing at Palma De Cortez is excellent. You can expect to catch Roosters, Jacks, and Snappers. Occasionally the Dorado come in very close to feed on the huge inshore bait balls. Along with all of the above, if you decide to fish the many reefs you will also catch many different types of Snappers plus the very hard fighting Amber Jacks which grow to a very good size.

Las Buiteras Lodge – Argentina

If you are a single angler or just looking to travel in a group with like-minded people then our hosted Sea Trout fishing holiday to Las Buitreras Lodge in Argentina is designed for you. Each year we have exclusive weeks on offer for our customers. Las Buitreras Lodge on the Rio Gallegos offers an unparalleled Sea Trout fishing program. The Rio Gallegos is a dream to fish with its low gradient, technical characteristics, exclusivity, outstanding guides, and its vast number of pools.

Sea Trout fishing at Las Buitreras Lodge in Argentina is like fishing for Atlantics or Steelheads. The fish tend to be more active early and late in the day, therefore we have scheduled all the fishing around this program. The fishing on the Rio Gallegos can be immensely rewarding. The sheer numbers and size of fish are just outstanding with fish averaging around 9lb. The Sea Trout Fishing in Rio Gallegos offers the adventurous angler the opportunity to put their skills against the explosive Sea Trout of Patagonia with fish that reach 30lbs.

Goodnews River Lodge – Alaska

Experience the solitude and peaceful beauty of Alaska. There are over 490 miles of fishable streams, braids, creeks, and river branches for you to enjoy. The three forks of the Goodnews River flow out of the Ahklun Mountains and wander through the Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as they make their way to the Bering Sea.

The River boasts outstanding runs of all 5 species of Pacific Salmon, sea-run Dolly Varden, resident Leopard Rainbows, and Grayling. Chrome bright Salmon, most still with sea lice, are the norm. These fish are fresh and feisty. They will challenge your angling skills. Resident Leopard Rainbows and Grayling live in all areas of the river, and follow the Salmon upriver, as they get ready for their spawning rituals.

Havoysund – Norway

They say the most remote fishing is the best! Well, they are not wrong. Havoysund is the most northerly part of Norway you can reach and is the go-to place for anglers around the world. The seas around Havoysund are teeming with Norway’s prime species, put this with an outstanding camp and guides and you have the best fishing spots in Norway.

There is no need to drive a  boat, work out the fishing marks, how to position the boat, or what depth to fish. Our guides worry about this for you allowing you to concentrate purely on fishing. Another benefit is that there is no extra charge for single anglers or small groups.

Kalum River Lodge – Canada

Designed for complete beginners and experienced fly fishermen, this group trip to Kalum River Lodge hosted by our own guide fishing the Skeena River system will surprise everyone. We have secured some of the top weeks where there will be exclusive access points to both the upper and lower Kalum River.

In addition, we have access to fish the world-famous Skeena River system for King, Coho, Pink, and Chum Salmon, plus world record size Steelhead all in the river systems at the same time. Fly fishing for Steelhead on the Skeena is considered by many to be the best Steelhead fishing in the world, as this watershed holds the world record for both Steelhead on the fly and with conventional tackle.

A – Norway

This trip will be hosted by one of our guides and he will be with you every step of the way helping you to get the most out of your sea fishing holiday. They will be driving the boat, leaving you free to look at the stunning scenery. On the day you arrive, our host will sit with you and go through all the tackle, showing you how to tie knots, how to set up rigs, and more importantly, what to do when you catch that fish of a lifetime.

The waters around these Islands are very rich in nutrients meaning they are very rich in fish stocks. Å is a well-known Norway sea fishing destination because it is in these waters where the world record Coalfish was captured. The surrounding nature is also magnificent and it is one of the most beautiful places in Norway.

Secure Lodge – Bolivia

Fishing each day is based on two anglers per motorized dugout with an Argentine fly fishing guide as well as one or two native boatmen. Each day you rotate between the sections of the river. There are three main areas called upper, middle, and lower. Each offers different styles of fishing. Along with this, there is the 2-day camping section on the upper Secure and also excursions up the two main creeks subject to water level.

Secure Lodge is located in an Indigenous Territory and a National Park where the Golden Dorado catch and release fly fishing activity is solely allowed. The landscape is incredibly wild and remote. The rivers where we fish are the headwaters of some Amazon tributaries, and its gin-clear currents run through jungle and mountains. This is one of the most pristine environments of the world to combine the stunning wildlife and amazing fishing this will be a holiday you talk about for a very long time.

Baboon Point – Mozambique

For many years now, Sportquest Holidays has been leading the way regarding new destinations, and this destination in Mozambique is going to set the shore fishing market alight. For many years, we have been searching for such a destination that offers anglers the chance to do battle with colossal GT’s without the need to be on a boat, and we would like to introduce you to Baboon Point Lodge in Mozambique.

In such areas as Bazaruto Archipelago, Incha, Nacala and the Quirimbas Islands, offshore fishing is second to none with a massive run of big Black Marlin. The run of Black Marlin is the main draw for so many anglers and not to mention the super hot fishing from the shoreline for such species as the huge GT’s, Pompano, Barracuda, tons of Skate and Rays. A little less known species for this area is the Bonefish, and they get big.

The Tented Camp is around 160km from Vilankulo Airport, and with 100km of the drive being on the main road and the last 60km being off-road, it is a true adventure just getting to the camp. The use of some 4X4 vehicles to drive through the African bush truly adds to a great experience.

Rodrigues Island – Mauritius

This fishing adventure is like no other out there! Exclusive to Sportquest Holidays, our Rodrigues Island fishing trip offers anglers a unique opportunity to fish for some incredible species. The fishing style used is down to you. You can tailor the itinerary to suit exactly how you wish to fish and the species you want to target. In addition to this, we have some excellent tackle packages waiting onboard for you to use completely free of charge. However, if you wish to bring your own equipment, we will supply you with a very detailed list of gear to take with you.

The waters around Rodrigues are teeming with many different species; in the morning, you could be popper fishing for GT’s. In the afternoon, you could be trolling for giant Black Marlin and then in the evening could be vertical jig fishing for Dogtooth Tuna. There’s something here for every angler and more. The Dogtooth Tuna is the main pull to this area as they get enormous, with a fish over 200lb being possible. Another very prolific species is the Yellowfin Tuna; now these get big off Rodrigues Island, and if you want to tick one of these Tuna off your list, then this is the place.

Jeffreys Bay – South Africa

We are pleased to offer you the opportunity to catch some of South Africas biggest and most formidable species from the shore. Here at the beautiful destination of Shark Fishing Jeffreys Bay, you will be fishing from the beach with a very experienced guide who will aid you while on your holiday to land some of the Indian Oceans most hard fighting species.

You can only describe the Shark Fishing Jeffreys Bay as phenomenal. These waters are full of big Sharks, including Bronze Whalers, Ragged Tooth and the super-hard fighting Bull Shark. Shark Fishing Jeffreys Bay is renowned as one of the best places to target and catch big Ragged-tooth Sharks, so if that is a species that you wish to target then, this is the trip for you.

    i dont consider myself an expert so an accompanied rip would be great, trouble is persuading my other half.
