Trip Introduction

Mola Mola Angling is the premier sports fishing guiding trip in Namibia, offering anglers access to the best fishing on the awesome Skeleton Coast. Specialising in both shark and non-shark species, the catch rate is second to none! This trip caters for the complete novice to the very experienced anglers alike offering the experience of a fishing lifetime, to experience what others can only dream of!

The Fishing

The Skeleton Coast of Namibia is one of the most nutrient rich areas of the Atlantic Ocean. Under the influence of the cold Benguella Current coming from the Antarctic Ocean, it feeds a huge eco-system of marine creatures, with the Copper Shark (Carcharhinus brachyurus) at the top of the coastal food chain. Though, it is not all about the ‘Bronzies’, as there are other shark species to test the angler, as well as a host of other non-shark species. The influence of the current seasonally does have an effect on the various species, though it is only a matter of where they have moved on this very dynamic and ever changing coastline.

The fishing from this coast is mostly using 14′ purpose made beach rods and multiplier reels, that suit the strength of species being sought. The guides will bait and cast all tackles as required, however for the experienced angler, they can undertake these tasks themselves, as they wish.

A typical day would start with clients being collected at their accommodation, in a 4×4 vehicle to travel to the days chosen fishing area. All fishing tackle and bait will be provided – no hidden costs. The anglers actually decide on the target species for the day, and this is best carried out in discussion with the guide, benefiting from their more intimate knowledge of local conditions, like weather, tide and sea conditions.
