Jozini Tiger fishing
Wherever I have fished, whether it was for bass, Kingfish in the surf, Queen Mackerel off a boat, Platannas or Tiger fish, my goal has always been to catch as many big ones in as short a time as possible by trying all the fishing techniques I knew and learned from other fishermen, and fishing in as many fishing spots as possible to get a good overall idea of what the fish do, what they eat when, and the best ways to catch a lot.
At first, fishing for Tiger fish at Jozini Dam was a very frustrating experience! As always, I spoke to fishermen in the area, some swore by bait and livebait fishing for Jozini Tiger fish and others preferred trolling Rapalas for Tiger fish.
I tried every method I had heard of to catch tiger fish in Jozini, and a few more. I even put out some whole sards on Couta rigs, trolled them fast and slow, and drifted them for Tiger fish. I tried every lure and spoon in my boxes on a variety of tackle, some which I tied up myself. I have tried fly fishing, spinning, spooning and have been tempted on many occasions to use a spear gun and dynamite to get my hands on a Tiger fish in Jozini!
Then one day, we tried something new, something that nobody else was doing, and since then, my entire view of Jozini Tiger fishing changed, and since then we have fishing sessions where it is just total mayhem!. There are big Tiger fish in Jozini Dam, and lots of them! You just have to know where to find them...
The information contained in this website will give you a good idea of how to catch a lot of Tiger fish at Jozini Dam using a variety of tiger fishing techniques.
