Marlin in the Pemba Channel

Listed under Fishing in Tanzania.

Pin It

The Pemba Channel is considered the best fishing location if Africa. It has a world-wide reputation for its marlin catches and holds several marlin records. Although marlin (blue, striped, and black) is the main fishing attraction, the waters of the channel are full of other species, like sail fish, mako, giant trevally, tuna, swordfish and other common game fish. The Pemba Channel is also home to broadbill, and if you troll for them at night, you are almost guaranteed a catch. Whether fly fishing or deep sea fishing, the fish will bite. But they’ll fight, so be ready for a long, exhausting battle.
