Location Description

Gabon Adventure Fishing Tour is without doubt the pinnacle of river, surf and estuary fishing through the gabonese jungle to Sette Cama our main fishing spot of coastline left on the African continent. There are very few places where you can target Giant Tarpon off the beach and only one where you do it in the company of Hippos, forest Elephants, Buffalo and Gorillas.

Fishing tips

Tarpon are caught both from the beach and from boats, on lures, livebait or (most often) drifted deadbait. There has been only limited success on flies, sight-casting being difficult in the leaf-stained water. Tarpon are the primary target, but many other species accept bait or lure. These include jack crevalle (kingfish/trevally) up to 30 kg; cubera snapper and giant threadfin that both attain over 40 kg; great barracuda up to 30 kg, Guinean barracuda, Guinean pompano, two types of kabeljou (drum, Senegal drum). And all are caught off the beaches or in the lagoons, in water seldom more than five metres deep. Gabon is not a destination for anglers who need to be spoon-fed. Little is known about tidal or fish movements, and the standard tarpon fishing method is small deadbaits drift-fished under a float on heavy tackle at estuary mouths. Because such rigs account for many 200 lb-plus tarpon, they seldom try anything else.

Season

Gabon is humid, although temperatures seldom go above 32 C. There is a short rainy season from Nov to mid-Dec, and the main rains fall from Feb to May. June to Oct is cool (26 c) and fairly dry. Tarpon are present all year but the big ones seem to like the rainy months. Nov - April is peak tarpon season. June and July are considered quietest for tarpon, but best for marlin, sailfish, wahoo, kingfish and other offshore species.
