Tanzania - Dogtooth Tuna

The ultimate challenge of jigging is waiting for you! We probably put the best destination in the world for Monster Dogtooth Tuna into our program for you. Almost all the current world records come from Tanzania! We’ll take you on a first class fishing safari.

Here you will hunt for the fat Dogtooth Tunas during several days on our catamaran on a desert island. With Jigging rods, Popper rods, Livebait-rods and Blanks we’ll then go hunting for Dogtooth Tuna, Giant Trevally, Snapper, Grouper, Shark, Marlin, Sailfish and Swordfish for five days. Our program is so unique that we have only room for three or four anglers on our boat per week! But do not worry. This offer can be individually booked at the minimum of three anglers!

Exemplary itinerary

The trip begins at Frankfurt International Airport. From there, it goes straight to Dar es Salaam. From the airport you're going directly to your beach hotel south of Dar es Salaam. In the early morning, the first part of your fishing safari will begin. You will be picked up at the hotel and reach the fishing grounds with our catamaran at about 9.30 am. You’ll fish until sunset and stay on the boat. The next day is fully yours to do jigging, popper fishing, trolling, or live-baiting. Again you’ll spend the night on the boat at anchor. Because we can only take limited provisions, you will fish up to late afternoon the next day and then go back to Dar Salaam, where you arrive in the evening. You’ll check into your beach hotel and relax from the first, drill-rich part of the journey. The next day is free of charge. You can relax on the beach while we get new supplies and prepare the boat. The next morning, it goes on for the second part of your journey. You’ll fish again and stay on the boat all day long. Again a whole day of fishing till your arms ache, before it goes back to Dar es Salaam the next day. The last fishing day offers you the opportunity to fish until after sunset. Then it goes back to Dar es Salaam at night, where you arrive and check into your hotel around midnight. The next day it's back to Germany.

This trip can be done up to four anglers! The minimum number of participants is three anglers! If you have no time for our group dates, we can work out a custom program for you. The best time on Big Doggies is from mid-September to mid-December. Generally, the season lasts until end of March. During the entire season you’ll have the chance for Big Doggies, Giant Trevallies, Snappers, Groupers, Swordfish, Sailfish, Marlin and other reef fish. The fishing methods can be freely selected and in general we fish using different methods to guarantee you the maximum chance of success.
