There are many exciting fishing opportunities in the waters of The Gambia. You can book a day fishing through our local representatives but if you are looking for a complete fishing package you may need to consider tides and seasons, therefore we recommend you contact our fishing partners and specialists, UK-based World Sport Fishing. They have an encyclopedic knowledge of fishing possibilities in The Gambia and will advise you on the best dates for your trip and ensure you get the best out of the fantastic boat, wreck and bluewater fishing that is now available.  Recent exploratory trips in the area have discovered new sites for both wreck and bluewater fishing with excellent catches being made this summer of Sailfish, Dorado, Grouper and Barracuda, amongst others.  The boats now being operated by World Sport Fishing are 10 metre, twin-engined sport fishers allowing longer distances to be travelled safely and quickly and are fully equipped with the latest electronics. The Senegalese skippers are highly experienced in fishing the waters of West Africa, and crew are knowledgeable and polite. Along with the superior boats, this knowledge can now offer access to sites that local fishing craft have been unable to access until now.

Fishing for big female Tarpon in the River Gambia in a prime spot in the waters close to the north shore offers the best opportunity to make a catch, both day and night.  Fishing packages including a 24 hour mixed wreck/Marlin fishing excursion, 2 days wreck or bluewater fishing and 1 day's guided beach fishing can be booked from the UK and offer excellent value - these can be added to a holiday in a wide selection of coastal hotels with transfers to and from the boat, all tackle and lunch on board included.

Customer Quote  My personal love affair with The Gambia started back in the early 1990s whilst researching locations for my 'Go Fishing' series for ITV. Due mainly to the wide range of salt and freshwater options available, I've been hooked ever since.  Customer Quote
