Firstly a reminder about sea snakes in the lagoon, another was caught during the week they have yellow bellies and green upper body, just cut the line and let it go back into the water, don’t try handle it. The water colour is still good so if fishing in the mouth area be alert for a Diamond giving you a good hiding. High tides in the early evening makes a afternoon session with a braai a good choice.
Yesterday was the best day this week as will today and tomorrow, there was some little fish caught during the early part of the week but nothing to shout about. Yesterday a small group got species of fish ( Catface Rockcod, Spinner shark, Moray Eel and a Snapper Kob) and 2 shark baits were picked up and they lost them both, one we suspect was a Raggie as the line was bittern off way above the steel. One of the spinner catches was a double up and they got attached by something on the way in. We have had very hot days for the last 3 days and usually after a hot spell the diamonds make an appearance so far most of the Diamonds have been caught on the home beaches.
Tomorrow looks good for a session in the morning. The N wind has cleaned the water up somewhat and is no longer green, I hear plans for some game fishing good luck chaps go for it.
