The fishing is conducted around the local Islands which are approximately 45minutes from Entebbe. The selection of fishing areas depends on how the fish are biting and the weather. At some points of the year, Lake Victoria is at times rough featuring large swells and as a result, fishing is conducted in the sheltered bays.
