Water is back to normal and fishing has been good, in part to the fact the mouth is deep and we getting a good tide “pull” , big cob will enter the mouth at night so worth targeting them late afternoon into the early evening, gates close at 10.
Beach is back to normal and is fishing well with plenty of edibles, Cob of size are been caught in the early morning and early evening on a variety of baits. Still no Garrick but they must be here because they have been caught at Amatikulu and in Richards Bay Harbor.
Great week for Couta fishing and some Yellow Fin Tuna were caught. Bottom fishing has been very slow but a great variety of species have been boated. One boat caught 12 Couta on Spoon alone, water was so clear they could see the spoons go down.
