After the big storm on Tuesday morning which saw localized flooding, the result was a very dirty River, this has started to settle and should bring the fish on the bite in time for the weekend. We due a Storm tonight let’s hope it does not bring too much mud down.
We have some clubs up here from far away fishing the local waters, welcome to Kokstad Rock and Surf Angling club tight lines. We hear that the water is dirty on the banks let’s hope the North that is blowing now cleans it up for the weekends fishing, the banks does not fish well in dirty water but for some reason the main beach and Port Dunford areas do. Please see the report from Wicked Stix I add to the page. Diamonds a popping.
