During the week the first of the baby Honey Comb Rays were caught of the season, they currently with about 3.5kg and will hang around for a few months, if you catch one please don’t turn it upside down to try get the hook out, if it swallowed the hook just cut the line and it will spit the hood out by itself, there are also small Grunter and Stumpnose please handle them with care. With the south wind blowing the best places to fish are the steel bridge area and to the right of the main car park as these are fairly sheltered, same for the boats
There was some heavy side wash over from Saturday afternoon through Sunday resulting in slow fishing. I believe some nice size Kob were caught early Saturday morning further than that mainly Rats and Mice. The S wind we currently having should stop the side wash however it will be very difficult to fish the next 2 days. Today or tomorrow we are expecting a delivery of fresh Chokka i.e. the first of the new season. We have decided to keep Daemon Perfect Circle Hooks 16/0 in Stock all I need now is cable 3mm and we all set for drone angling for the summer season. From tomorrow till the end of November is closed Shad season play it safe and release them, remember you cannot use them as bait either.
This section of our sport has been quiet of late mainly due to incumbent weather however you Louis took the window on Saturday morning and went Snoek hunting but no luck however he reported a massive shoal of Shad at the wreck almost as though they waiting for the closed season starting tomorrow to enter the surf zone and tease the anglers.
