Jonno

Jonno is the owner of Obelix charters. Having grown up in Cape Town, he knows these waters like the back of his hands. He holds Provincial and National colours for fishing and has fished recreationally, competitively and commercially from an early age. An enthusiastic traveller, he has had the opportunity to fish in some of the finest fishing locations in the world.

He is passionate about sports fishing, whether it is inshore, offshore or freshwater. Some say he can almost smell the fish before he hooks them!

Tim

Tim has been testing his fishing skills since the age of four. He holds Provincial Junior colours and has fished competitively from an early age.

He became involved in the commercial fishing industry at 16 and has since acquired his own commercial tuna boat. A fisherman by trade he is always keen to join the more relaxed atmosphere of sports fishing.

When not fishing, you will find Tim enjoying life with his wife Jess and three dogs.

Mark

There are few people more passionate about fishing than Mark. An old sea dog, he has lived in Cape Town all his life and has extensive knowledge of the fishing around our coastline. He holds his Provincial and National colours as a Captain/Skipper.

Mark is also our maintenance advisor and unofficial life coach. You’ll have a very good chance of catching whatever’s biting at that time of the year with Mark at the helm.

Gerhard

Breaking records, representing his country repeatedly and also owning his own successful tackle shop for over 15 years – Gerhard is the ultimate guy to have on board to ensure a successful trip. If there are fish out there, Gerhard will find them.

Gerhard has been fishing for tuna for over 50 years. When on charter he aims to catch quality fish, please his clients, teach the basics, and to bring them back to shore safely – everytime.
