A big piece of blubber from the dead whale washed into the Lagoon yesterday one would have thought there would be fish feeding on it but I think the meat was so old no self-respecting fish would eat it or near it. Apart from the Kob Emily caught on Friday morning it seems as though river fishing has been very slow although the water temperature is around 23deg.
Spinners Spinners everywhere, they are still small so it seems as though we had had a second breeding season this year. Just to remind you these may not be used as live bait is one of the fish we may not keep now that we are a part of a Marine Protected Area (MPA) is we can catch sharks but must release them immediately. Fishing this morning as like yesterday the sea seemed colder than usual and this could be the reason only the baby Spinners were feeding. On Saturday Chris managed to land a very nice Hammerhead around the 75kg mark and that would have given a good fight however his friend fishing the same spot got into a monster fish that after 3 hrs got his 3mm wire bitten off.
Good catches have been made off Richards Bay of Tuna and Dorado however over the weekend, fishing was tough, and maybe it was because of the cold water that is also in the surf zone..
