The Mozambique coastline is renowned for its offshore game fishing, and Tofo is at the heart of the action. The pristine, blue waters abound with king mackerel (barracuda), dorado, wahoo, various species of kingfish, bonito and yellow-fin tuna. The sailfish season peaks from June to August. Boats can be launched or chartered from Tofo beach. If it is marlin you are after, then summer is definitely the best time to visit this piece of paradise. Catch and release of all fish that will not form part of the evening meal is encouraged, as is protection of all other natural resources and the environment.

Angling from the shore can also be most productive. Small kingfish, that range between 2 to 3 kg, can be found from the rocks off Tofinho, particularly towards high tide and at deep water spots.

Adrie Prinsloo, from Glassfit in Witbank, holds the Tofinho record of 48kg for a Kingfish caught off the rocks at Tofinho. Kingfish, stump nose and pompano are taken from the sandy beaches between Tofo and Tofinho. Salt water fly fishing is becoming increasingly popular, particularly off the sandbars at Tofo point.
