FISHING with St Francis Safaris can only be described as epic.

This is according to Brid-get Rodgers who recently had the opportunity to experience an unforgettable fishing adventure.

“Leaving the port at St Francis late afternoon, the sun was low in the sky colouring it a glowing magenta. The sea was glistening gold as the last rays tinted the horizon. Visibility was perfect and expectations on board were high. We weren’t going to be disappointed,” says Rodgers.

Arriving at their designa-ted mark, they were treated to sightings of Hump Back Whales breaching only metres from the boat - a truly majestic sight that will even have the keenest fisherman watch in awe.

“It was time to concentrate on the real reason we were here. To target Yellowtail, or what is locally referred to as the Widow Maker. This species can be elusive and many a year has gone by where fishermen have left their partners at home in pursuit of ‘The Tails’ arrival in our bays,” says Rodgers.

As luck would have it, within minutes of dropping lines the action started.

“The Yellowtail were running thick and chaos pursued as we battled these beauties up from 30m. Adrenaline ran high while the fight was on. Fishing Yellowtail could well be fishing at its finest!

“To describe the elation landing a 10kg - 12kg Yellowtail, is something you will have to come and experience for yourself. It is one of the those feelings you know will be relived and retold with a huge smile and sense of satisfaction for years to come.”

According to Rodgers, St Francis Safaris provided them with a professional experience from start to finish: a great skipper, helpful deckhands, quality tackle and bait, and not to mention, they got to keep their catch for the most delicious dinner ever.

“I have also had the privilege of catching Cob, Garrick, Snook and Tuna with St Francis Safaris. I can assure you there is no one else who will come close to delivering results like the team at St Francis Safaris.”
