Shore-based Shark fishing in Namibia takes place from the beach along the Skeleton Coast. The coast sits in the cold, nutrient-rich Benguela current of the Southern Atlantic and that, coupled with the hot Namib desert that extends the entire length of the Namibian coastline, means frequent morning fog, dropping the temperature down to comfortable levels. Shipwrecks adorn the coastline, including some quite recent ones which make for some amazing photographs. The cold current brings a mass of plankton which in turn, brings the fish and other aquatic species. Four species of Dolphins, Cape Fur Seals, Whales (Southern Right, Killer and Humpback plus others) and Leatherback Turtles are all found along the coastline along with a massive variety, and amount, of bird species including South African Penguins in the desert!
You will be fishing from the shore on long sandy beaches targeting the huge Bronze Whaler Sharks that live here, these fish can grow in excess of 400lb’s and once hooked will give you a fight you will never forget. Along with the massive Bronze Whaler sharks that inhabit this stretch of coastline you will also be able to target some of the smaller species that live here on lighter tackle. These include Spotted Gully Sharks, Smoothhounds, Eagle Rays, Sand Sharks and Kabeljou. Rods are typically 14’ one piece and fitted with large multipliers to hold plenty of line. The baits for the bronze Whalers are big and bloody and these are either cast out or flown out using a drone to distances in excess of 250m. Lighter setups are used for other species like the rays and Kabeljou. So if you are looking for your very next full on a fishing adventure then why not give this a go it is one of if not the best shore-based Shark fishing experience in the world.
