Kiddies clinic was great fun , even though there was no top surface activity the River Bream kept them busy, the first few caught were of a good sixe there after they seemed to keep getting smaller, towards the end when most of the kids were playing in the water , the Bream kept biting. Most unusual fish caught was a Silago or Banana Fish. Water is getting cleaner by the day.
Friday and Saturday were very productive again but Sunday with the SW it was a blow out to say the least. On the main beach the Anglers were plagued by “Pocket Shad” yet some nice Diamonds were landed, no big Shad and very few made over 30cm. A few Snapper Cob were caught. Got some nice Mac’s in this morning as well as some Giant Sugar Mac’s that look like Bonnies. The Natal Redeye Sard also arrived and are looking very good. The sea is looking like coffee but we are still going to go down this evening for a throw. Why not?
I believe some boats took advantage of the calm conditions and went fishing, my informants report very little activity and I hope to learn more this week as to what transpired. The water in the bay at the moment is very much discolored but with the NE and E blowing this week it should clear up.
Next monthly mug will be on the 4 March at the Umlalazi Ski Boat Club.
