Reel Thyme Charters is an owner run Fishing Charter Company operating out of Hout Bay, Cape Town. Our waters off Cape Point boast some of the best tuna fishing seen in the world, making this our primary target species. The best months to target them are from October through to June. Catching trophy tuna requires the best in both boat and tackle and that’s exactly what Reel Thyme Charters offers. Making use of Shimano reels matched with custom made rods we offer our clients the very best tackle. Our Two Oceans Magnum provides the ideal fishing platform and is fully equipped with the very latest SIMRAD navigational and fish finding equipment. Spoilt for choice we also have a rich inshore fishery including Yellowtail and Snoek, which make for great fun on light tackle and can also be fitted into a half-day charter.
Sean Todd is a born and bred Capetonian who started fishing at the
age of 5, catching his first tuna shortly thereafter. He has been involved in most aspects of our local fishing, including light tackle, competitive offshore and inshore fishing as well as fishing commercially. Sean has been around water all his life and has taken part in just about all water sports on offer. He is still an avid kite surfer and scuba diver. As a qualified Dive Master he has also run a dive operation in False Bay. Having held several angling records including WP, South African, All African and a world record he is well versed in light tackle fishing. His charter operation runs out of Hout Bay, which is ideally positioned to get the best out of our world-class tuna fishery. Being a freelance photographer as well as an avid fisherman and spearo, Sean offers the various specialised services on his charters to cater for every need. Whether its catching Yellowfin on light or heavy tackle, on a fly rod or getting in the water and spearfishing for our massive Tuna he has done it all and gladly passes on his knowledge to his clients.
