Goliath Tiger Fish

NEW: Take a look at our dedicated Goliath Tiger Fishing Site:

A fascinating trip to the remote jungles and black heart of Africa the trip
is the only one in the world for these giant fresh water predators.

Goliath Tiger Fishing - Africa -The Congo
Comment from Peter McCullough “ I was extremely tentative about the trip but as soon as we arrived there was someone to assist at the airport and from day 1 we were well cared and looked after the fishing was superb and locations gave mixed results but we caught many species and 7 tigers to ‘56lb’ just a brilliant once in a life time experience which I would not have missed for the world”

What to Expect
This has got to be the most exciting opportunity to go for a seriously toothy creature, the Goliath Tiger fish, awesome fighters, with incredible surges and jumps, for a big fish they are extremely acrobatic, generally taken trolling or dead/live bait fishing, no one has seriously gone after them with a fly rod and the world record is waiting for an adventurer to take. And I would argue that this is one of the last horizons for Game fisherman ‘Mbenga’ is the largest Tiger fish of all, and King of the sport in Central Africa. The trips are safe and well planned by experienced Europeans, who speak good English.

The Fishing
Can be long hours for one fish much like salmon fishing I always thought but with hind sight its exciting live bait produces the best strike rate large Plugs (with eagle claw Hooks in shallower runs work well as do big flat spoons (silver) Fly fishing is done in quieter sections of the river with big flies silver based.
