Sorry no report was done on Friday because we were busy with yearend and taking stock and adding it by item to a spread sheet took up most of the day, thank you the Anglers for the support as we are now carrying 804 different items and still adding more as the people request it, for example we now Stock 20/0 circle Hooks and 16/0 J Hooks we also have Glass Rattles, I think these will be great for Kob fishing for some reason.

Lagoon

In spite of the influx of Pelicans the fish still seem to be feeding and catches of Bartail, River Bream and Malabar Rockcod are being made together with the odd Kob of which some are nearly making size. Live prawns and Glassies seem to be the favourite bait apart from the usual squid, Sards, Bait Prawn and artificials. Some nice catches of River Snapper have been made and with the new moon spring tomorrow and the big tidal push should see more Snapper been caught especially in the area of the mouth.

 

Surf

Be careful on the beach for the next few days as there are blue bottles in the water as well as on the beach, if you have young children with you it might be better to fish the lagoon, these are normally blown in by an East wind. Last evening when we left the beach the water was starting to get clean and with the sunshine today and I assume nothing changed it might be a good day to do some spooning, the big Shad are about. Last Thursday the Main Beach was the place to be as Riaan managed 2 diamonds and some Kob they also managed to get some Shad between 700g and 1.5kg. On Diamond was caught on a Bonnie head with Mac flap and the other on a live Shad both baits were slid out. I notice there is a tendency to by Anglers saying the PE Mac’s from Adcan are no good yet the local Anglers ae catching big Shad, Cob and the odd Diamond with them plus of coarse Rats and Mice. Some nice size Pompano have been caught on both Sard, Crab and Sea lice.

 

Ski boat

Amatikulu Ski Boats club fished their Couta Classic this weekend called the Cape to Rio at Cape Vidal and most of the local were involved in that some very nice size Couta were caught as well a variety of fish. Due to this been the draw card we do not know if anyone fished here in our local waters, there are some nice fishing days this week with Wednesday looking the best according to the fishing apps, by the way today is a good fishing day with cleanish water and a good reading on the fishing App if one goes by that.

Next events.
We have an 8 sleeper house (can sleep 10 as it has 2 double beds) should a group want to hire it, it is self-catering with ample bait storage space.
