Tag a fish or shark this holiday

LOVE environmental-friendly fishing?

Yes - then tag and release a fish, or even a shark, this holiday in Jeffreys Bay.

Professional fisherman and environmentalist, Duvan van Breda from Fishing South Africa, with Duvan van Breda, offers his expertise to help locals and visitors catch, tag and release fish on a guided tour.

Van Breda is a young avid fishing local enthusiast who grew up along the salty shores of Jeffreys Bay. He moved to Cape Town and completed his BCom entrepreneurial degree at Stellenbosch.

Five years down the line, at the end of 2018, he moved back to Jeffreys Bay and started his own shore-based specialist fishing tours full-time after guiding part-time for five years.

Van Breda has successfully attracted fishing tourists from around the world to designate, target, catch, tag and release some of the magnificent sharks, as well as some of the other species that South Africa has to offer.

He accompanies tourists to his local hideouts in search of a particular species of fish to tick off their bucket list.

Although he does many trips with people from abroad, he enjoys catering for the local market.

“Many people ask me for advice, so for the locals I often take time while on a guided trip – not only to help them catch some great fish, but also to show them some tricks of the trade that will step up their fishing game.”

Van Breda still represents Western Province professionally and he hasn’t let his pleasure become his “job,” but instead it remains a passion.

“It brings me tremendous joy to help people realise a dream of catching that one fish which has been on their bucket list but has eluded them,” he says.

He has a wealth of knowledge about the various fish species and how the tides and the moon can have an influence on what you can catch. He acts in the best interest of the fish, the majority of his fish being released with an occasional Cob for the pan. Most of the sharks caught are tagged and released.

Apart from his expertise and advice, Van Breda provides all the tackle and bait needed, as well as drinks and a light snack.

A drone is used to drop the bait.
