Don’t tell anyone this is a secret, not only are the Cob in the river so are Snappers, this has to be the best kept secret ever, people are even coming from Tugela to have a crack at them. They have been caught from the steel bridge right to the mouth so if you don’t have a boat you are still within a chance of catching some. Besides Glassies and baby Mullet, Sard and Baby Squid are doing the trick. For the plastic guys the Strike Pro Minnow is a killer.
We have had good surf conditions all week taking us up till late tomorrow afternoon when the swell will pick up and bring his friend Mr Sidewash, however the wind drops off quiet quickly with that the swell should start dropping reducing the side wash. Cob and big Shad still around and so are the Baby Greys, please treat these little fellas gently so they can grow big and strong and come back and give you a right hiding on the beach.
Tomorrow morning is looking very good although there will be a small swell , lets hope it is strong enough to churn the bottom up to increase the fish activity, on Monday the swell was so small it meant a very slow days fishing, water colour looking good , Couta are on as they say. Tight lines.
Umlalazi Ski Boat club is planning to hold a Bottom Fishing Competition in August , more detail to follow.
We are planning to hold a Kiddies clinic 2 June at 14H00 o 16H00 in the main Car Park.
Winner takes all will walk away with a river Rod combo.
