Kwanza Lodge, one of the best Angola fishing lodges, is situated amongst some of the most beautiful scenery known to man. With over 40 miles of untouched beaches on one side of the Lodge. On the other hand, there is the fish packed River Cuanza. Kwanza River fishing offers a fantastic opportunity to catch Tarpon.
The huge Tarpon and the super-hard fighting Giant Threadfins are what attracts anglers from across the globe. Once hooked, you may find yourself giving up your regular fishing to spend all your time solely on Angola fishing tours. Many of the waters surrounding this Lodge have seen little to no fishing pressure. So the fish numbers are still very high. With Kwanza Lodge practising a good catch and release policy, numbers should stay high. They are making this one of the best Angola fishing spots available. The River Cuanza use to hold the Tarpon record back in the ’70s, and will not be long before another is caught. Tarpon fishing Angola gives it’s visitors the opportunity to land a record-breaking fish.
Kwanza Tarpon Lodge was constructed back in the ’90s and was built on stilts on the banks of the Kwanza River famous for its giant Tarpon and is close to the mouth of the mighty river. For many years, anglers from around the world fished this little unheard piece of paradise. They kept quiet about how excellent the fishing was. Then there was civil unrest which put a stop to people travelling there. Now that the country is slowly recovering, people are starting to head back there in search of the mighty Silver King.
This recovery process is transforming Kwanza Lodge into one of the best fishing spots in Angola. With Kwanza Lodge located at the mouth of the mighty River Cuanza, you have the best of both worlds. Firstly, when the Tarpon enters the river system to escape the open ocean currents. Secondly, when the Tarpon cruise the shoreline you have direct access to this as well.
Tarpon fishing Angola is varied with the opportunity to one day, fish the freshwaters of the river Cuanza. The next you could be offshore fishing for enormous Marlin. The guides will make sure that all your requirements are catered for. So if you wish to troll all day or even popper fish, then this will be tailored into your itinerary. Another reason why big game fishing Angola is such a sought after destination. The main species targeted at this destination are Tarpon which grows over 200lb, Cubera Snappers to 100lb, African Threadfin to 90lb and some super-sized Jacks. Tarpon fishing Angola makes you realise how good Tarpon fishing can be. Make sure to stop by our Big Game Facebook Community group to share your experiences, best catches and fishing tips.
You also have the usual offshore species available from huge Marlin to shoals of Tuna. It is a multi-species destination suitable for all levels of fishing experience. The primary technique will be lure and popper fishing for most of these species from large poppers to small vertical jigs most of the species will be more than willing to take a well-presented lure. While lure or popper fishing is the most practised technique, a slowly drifted live or dead-bait free-lined on a circle hook trips up some of the wariest of species. The offshore species are targeted by trolling either soft lures or live baits.
When you find big shoals of busting Tuna, then a big cast of a popper will work very well, and the results will be explosive. Kwanza Lodge has a couple of very well equipped fishing boats for both inshore and offshore fishing. They come equipped with all the trolling equipment, but if you intend on lure fishing, you will need to bring all the equipment yourself.
The Angola fishing guides at Kwanza Lodge are used to fishing many different styles and will accommodate lure, fly or bait fishing. Their knowledge of these waters and the species you will be targeting is second to none. On each boat, you will be accompanied by a very knowledgable captain. The captain will help with rigging up, casting techniques and of course, taking that trophy shot.
