For decades, anglers have sought western Indian Ocean sails off the coast of Kenya. The action in recent seasons seems better than ever, and one theory is that worry of Somali pirates to the north (but not off Kenya) has reduced pressure from longliners in the region, allowing pelagics to flourish.
Why You Should Go: Don't like long runs to fish? Here, lines can go in as little as a mile from the beach. Seas run calm and crowds are nil. These waters are also known for nighttime swordfishing. Charters are cheap.
But... Not so cheap is the airfare to Nairobi, which will set you back in the vicinity of a couple grand.
