AFRICAN ANGLING has extensive knowledge of fishing in the TERRITORIAL WATERS OF THE GAMBIA, stretching over 20 years.   Based on our experience and having guided anglers from all over the world, we have tailor-made fishing trips to suit the requirements of the fishermen who want to sample the best range of fishing THE GAMBIA has to offer !

------------------------------------------------------------------


River Estuary and Coastal Fishing

The warm tropical waters of the Atlantic Ocean blend together with the River estuary and coastal waters of THE GAMBIA bringing with them some exciting fishing opportunities!

Shoals of BARRACUDA and JACKS make for some great trolling and lure fishing.  Added to by the varied bait fishing at anchor on the INSHORE REEFS and SAND BANKS, fishing for SNAPPER, CASSAVA, LADY FISH, CAPTAIN FISH and LARGE STING RAYS, makes for the best day's fishing for variety of species and fishing methods. 

Pods of TARPON also move into the inshore waters and can be targeted during the summer months and also during the winter months in the River Mouth using a variety of methods including live baits, lures and fly!  Their hard fighting aerobatics make these a top catch for Anglers. 

Daily Boat Charter Price (sole use of boat) - £150




-------------------------------------------------------


All Fishing trips run daily throughout the year and can be booked on a daily basis in advance or in resort. 

All fishing trips are Inc. of all fishing tackle & equipment, baits, guide, mineral water.
