The water was very brown earlier in the week after the big rain but crossing the N2 just now it is looking a lot more favorable fishing from now into the weekend. The rain forecast does not look like it is enough to cause and problems. Tight lines.
Finally the colour is coming back from very strong coffee to a mild coffee and the side wash is dying down, if the wind carries on blowing all afternoon into the evening tomorrows surf conditions will be good, the water temperature should have dropped somewhat so time to head out for a decent Cob. Chokka slide will do the trick, we have some small ones in stock that some guys can even use as a throw bait.
On Monday morning Seasquire popped out for a fish before Richard had to go back to work and they banged themselves a nice 22kg Couta plus some bottoms (that would have earned him a nice cheque a few days earlier). For the remainder of the week the sea was not very happy and is very brown and green, we are hoping the NE today will settle the sea to enable a good days fishing on Sunday.
