Fish hunting

Fish kinds

The main goal fish to hunt is Nile perch (Lates niloticus). The average weight of these exemplary fish in the safari is about 20-50kg. The biggest Nile perch caught had 176 kg!! According to the survey Nile perch can have a chance to have a record size in the lakes not in the river systems. We are known that there are giant fish in the Lake Nasser. Nile perch is caught with trolling and a na přívlač from the bank.


Another interesting catch is a tigerfish (Hydrocynus forskalii) which can weight about 8kg. The size of Nile perch and on the other hand sportive experience to catch tigerfish with easy tools also brings adrenaline adventure. We hunt for přívlač mainly so tigerfish is sometimes a good catch when you use trolling.


Sheatfish makes a good challenge. There are 18 types in the lake and 2 of them are very important for fishermen – Bargus a legendary Vundu of course. If you get Vundu on the hook we guarantee unforgettable match. Local fishermen talk about pieces they have more than 50 kg. The biggest fish caught had 78lb (35kg).


Another fish hunted for přívlač is tilapia that is very popular among local fishermen. Blowfish that blow their body as a ball and bite are also found there.

Fishing seasons

Fishing season is divided into 2 terms:

a) Summer season: from the half of March till the end of July we can find Nile perch in flat water because tilapia the main pray is in the phase of spawning. That is the best time of the year for přívlač from the bank. Trolling provides a good sportive experience when using flat fishing lures. We can see a lot of perches at this time but they are smaller than in winter season.

August and September are very hot months at the Lake Nasser. Neither our local guides work at this time.

b) Winter season: from the middle of October till the end of January. The lake reaches the highest point and perches are in deep water. It is not good time for fishing from the bank but if you would like to catch a very big perch with using trolling technique, it is the best time ever.

April, May, October and November are busy months. Book your trip earlier!
