Written by Craig Owen

Cape Verde

It was a special birthday coming up for the wife and she’d decided she’d like to go back to Cape Verde for her birthday. After going to Boa Vista for our honeymoon and catching small sharks on spinning gear, I was more than up for returning, but this time with some heavier gear.

This time we booked to go to the main island of Sal, the hotel was a bit more kid friendly to keep my 10 year old happy.

As soon as we booked I set about choosing what gear to take.

Decisions, decisions!

I decided on the Tronixpro Xenon Travel 12’6″ 3-6oz with a Penn Battle II 8000LL LC and a Shakespeare Agility 2 Exp Beach 11ft 6in Travel Rod with a Penn Spinfisher 6500 LL for my boy.

I also packed some spinning gear with the Nomura travel spinning rod and a Penn Battle II 4000 being my option.

Arrival day

On arrival the country’s motto of “No Stress” really did kick in, so we chilled out for the first few days and did the family stuff along with an island tour. We also did a trip where we got to walk out onto a reef where juvenile Lemon Sharks hang out and swim amongst your feet. I did see some good 2 meter shark about 10m further out!

A Welshman Fishing in Morocco

Making myself at home

Fishing in Morocco – Have you ever thought about going to Morocco for the fishing experience of a lifetime, then please read on as I write about my experience. Maybe it will help you decide whether to finally make that booking!

My Fishing in Morocco experience

18 months ago I wanted to do something different, fish somewhere out of the norm and to a destination that I hadn’t visited before. My partner Katy had never been on a fishing trip with me in the past but this time she was going to come, so when I looked at Morocco it seemed perfect. We could fly to the lovely city of Marrakech, spend a couple of nights there in one of it’s beautiful riad’s, then travel to the Atlas Mountains to Lake (BEO) Bin El Ouidane, home of black bass, zander and what would be my target species African Carp with a lake record of over 70 lb.

Amazing first view of the lake

After doing the tourist things and city sight seeing in Marrakech the time had come for our driver to pick us up to travel to the lake, a few hours later we drove over a brow and I got a first glance of her, and she is massive, to be exact over 15,000 acres at it’s fullest.
