The Quest for a Bullshark: One Angler’s Personal Best fishing in Loango

The stories of the previous week’s taxman bonanza were music to one angler’s ears, as he had returned to Sette Cama to settle a previous trip’s vendetta with a big Bullshark. He can happily cross off his bucket list as, on day 4, he landed his personal best and holy grail Bullshark of over 300kg and over 3m fork length.

Improved Fishing: Senegalese Kob and Threadfin

As the week progressed, the fishing improved with a lot of Senegalese Kob and larger threadfin moving into the system, keeping everyone on their toes. However, the larger snapper and tarpon that were seen in previous weeks were largely missing. That is until the last few evenings when they made a dramatic reappearance.

Missing Snapper and Tarpon Resurgence

Several Tarpon encounters resulted in broken leaders, straightened hooks, and empty spools, and the snapper made mincemeat of the angler’s shadraps.

Overall, it proved to be another fantastic week in paradise with some breathtaking sunsets to remind us of just how special this place can be.
