Baboon Point Lodge | Mozambique | GT Fishing

Overview

Tour code: MOZ001

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

This solid tented accommodation with ocean view is the perfect base for an exciting week surfcasting the coast of Mozambique, you will be in the heart of all the action and just steps away from some of the most fish-filled waters in the area.

Location

Mozambique is very quickly earning itself a reputation as one the most exciting fishing and varied destinations in the world. The offshore fishing in such areas as Bazaruto Archipelago, Incha, Nacala and Quirimbas Islands is second to none with a huge run of big Black Marlin which 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 and with some 4X4 vehicles and the drive through the African bush it truly is a great start to your adventure.

Fishing

With your base being only 200m from the shoreline, you are right amongst some of the most fish-filled waters in the area. The fishing is split into two sections, the morning session and then the late afternoon-evening session into the dark. This tends to be when most of the fish are at their most active. The morning session will start while it is still dark and after a light breakfast, you will be taken down to certain areas of the beach to take advantage of the morning tide. The morning fishing is mainly lure fishing as the fish are very active chasing lots of baitfish in and around the reefs. You will be fishing the areas between yourself and the start of the reefs and then if that doesn’t work then fishing over the reefs will be your next port of call. At around 11 am you will then be bought back to Baboon point camp where you are free to relax and even have a siesta while the guides set the tackle for the late afternoon session.

The late afternoon session will normally start around 4 pm and you will fish a couple of hours into dark. The fishing method is entirely your choice but the guides highly recommend live baiting in too dark as this is when the real monsters come out to play. A fish called a green spot (baitfish) of around 5lb will be hooked up on a slider then let swim out to the kill zone where the predators are lining up for the feast. You can, of course, lure fish the evening session and the guides will recommend certain areas for the best chances, but once you see one of these live baits leisurely swim out into the sea then all of a sudden the line starts to pour off the reel as the bait is taken by something very large you may find yourself giving it a go.

Baboon Point Camp

Baboon Point lodge is built in the beautiful white dunes of central Mozambique and situated under the shade of some big Casuarina trees. It is only 200m from the water’s edge. The lodge consists of a tented camp built on wooden decking. There are 5 units that sleep 2 people. The units are each fitted with a toilet, basin and shower. The kitchen,bar, dining room and lounge area is situated in the centre of the lodge with a deck and beautiful sea view.

Guiding

The guides at this destination are masters in their fields and you will soon realise this once they start to put you in the right place at the exact right time. The guides are completely used to a huge variety of fishing techniques from bait fishing, lure fishing or even fly fishing. They have seen it all and tried it all so if you fancy trying something a little different and you have bought the correct gear then these guides will make it happen.

Other Activities

Due to the remoteness of this lodge, there is very little else to do apart from wildlife spotting and walks

Accommodation
Baboon Point Lodge

Baboon point lodge is an exclusive fishing lodge. We made the lodge as comfortable as possible. Our main objective is to ensure that our clients catch as many fish as possible. Due to the remoteness of the lodge and the fact that we are the only people that fish this area, there is a very good chance of catching that fish of a lifetime. Baboon Point lodge is built in the beautiful white dunes of central Mozambique and situated under the shade of some big Casuarina trees. It is only 200m from the water’s edge.

Itinerary

The below itinerary is only a suggested one, as we have daily flights departing from the UK, therefore should you wish to extend your stay with either more fishing days or free days, the itinerary below can be tailored to suit.

DAY 1:

Depart UK (alternative routes available)
Arrive Doha

Depart Doha

DAY 2:

Arrive Maputo
Depart Maputo

Arrive Vilanculos (Mozambique)

Once you have arrived, you will make your way through passport control and follow the signs for baggage collections. Once you have collected your bags a representative from Baboon Point Lodge will be waiting with a 4X4 to drive you the scenic drive to the lodge. (transfer approx.. 2.5hrs)

Once you have arrived at your tented accommodation you will be checked in and then given time to settle in and unpack. The fishing guide will then come round and make sure you are ready for your next days fishing

Overnight accommodation: Baboon Point Fishing Lodge (Twin rooms) F/B

DAY 3 & 4: FISHING DAYS

The fishing days are split in to two separate sessions. This is to ensure that you are fishing the best times and not wasting energy fishing at the wrong time.

Each day after a light early breakfast you will be taken to your early morning fishing spot where you will be mainly fishing a mixture of lures to temp some of the early rising fish.

At around 11am you will be taken back to the lodge area where you are free to relax or even have a siesta ahead of the afternoon session

Overnight accommodation: Baboon Point Fishing Lodge (Twin rooms) F/B

DAYS 5 & 6: FISHING DAYS

An afternoon session typically starts around 4pm and you will be taken to some slightly deeper water to mainly fish with livebaits on zip sliders. This is by far the best method to target the real big GT’s or Sharks.

After your afternoon session, fishing a couple of hours in to dark, you will be taken back to the lodge where you will either be treated to a traditional BBQ or home cooked meal.

Overnight accommodation: Baboon Point Fishing Lodge (Twin rooms) F/B

DAYS 7 & 8: FISHING DAYS

This area is famous for the huge GT’s that patrol the shore line and a carefully placed lure of your choice or a big livebait will tempted most of these GT’s and if you fancy targeting the sharks then we would strongly recommend a big livebait.

What ever you choose to target in Mozambique make sure you are ready for an extremely long battle as these fish fight very hard in the surf and do not give themselves up easily.
