Linene offers the greatest variety of fishing available in Mozambique.
Linene is the ideal fishing destination for all levels of anglers, from beginners to experienced fishermen. Linene is the ideal destination for those fishermen who enjoy a variety of styles of fishing, from light tackle and fly fishing, to casting big poppers or live baits into the surf for GT’s, jigging offshore for amberjack or trolling for sailfish and wahoo.
The Linene area is best known for its consistently good catches of large game fish from the beach. This is due to the close proximity of deep water to the surf line, and the strong currents coming in and out of the multiple estuary mouths.
Offshore reefs in the area are still in pristine condition, as there is very little fishing pressure from other operations or from local fishermen. Our policy of encouraging catch and release is also helping to keep local fish stocks in good condition.
The estuary offers fine light tackle lure fishing, either from the side or from a drifting boat around the reef area. On a pushing tide the reef in the estuary attracts large shoals of baitfish which are in turn hunted by big king mackerel which enter the estuary in search of these shoals.
WHERE WOULD YOU FIND LINENE?
Linene Island Resort is situated in the Bazaruto archipelago, on a small island in a tidal estuary on the East side of San Sebastian peninsula. This is just South of the town of Vilancoulos in Mozambique. The lodge is reachable by boat only. Transfers are done with the lodge boats between Vilancoulos and the lodge whenever required. At times transfers can be delayed because of tidal movements, as it may not be possible to access the channels at low tides. If a flight arrives in Vilancoulos over a low spring tide guests may have to relax for a couple of hours and enjoy a drink at a local pub or one of the lodges in Vilanculos while waiting for the water to come in. In extreme cases it may even be necessary to overnight in Vilancoulos and leave for Linene the following morning. This does not happen often.
