Fishing was somewhat subdued over the weekend or it could have been a hive of activity and we did not get to hear about it, it goes like that sometimes and later in the week we hear of massive fish been caught.
Although the weather was kind for fishing most of the weekend the fish were not kind back and were very slow to bite and the Anglers that persisted caught something like the odd Shad or Milky. There was a sighting of a shark just behind the shore break it was suspected to be a big Zambie patrolling along and it was after the sighting when a Diamond was landed, not a very big one but a nice specimen none the less. 18 more days and Mud Bream become Shad speaking of which there are still some nice specimens over 2kg lurking about. The absence of Snapper Kob was noted this weekend hopefully they will come back from where ever they went.
Friday and yesterday were fishable days and good catches were made of bottom fish mainly Squaretail Kob and slinger but in our bay no game fish were caught or seen, however out at high point Nanook boated a 9 Kg Dorado.
