Was very quiet by its standards even though we had a massive tide being spring yesterday. Some anglers managed a few juvenile species but most did not even get a tug. I saw a very nice pull but after a few seconds the angler dropped the fish, by the bend on the rod it was something decent.
Joe got a nice Garrick of 10.1kg yesterday and I know of a few others caught. Snapper Cob and Shad were going mad at Amatikulu while here at Mtunzini, although they were about not a lot were caught. Saturday morning saw Max who went for a “few throws” land a Rockcod of between 3-4 Kgs unfortunately it was gut hooked so he could not release it, he normally releases all his fish.
Species wise was a good weekend for the guys doing bottoms. Spade fish of 4.3kg and a Speckled Snapper of 3.8kg were boated together with lots of Cat Face Rockcod, Square Tail Cob, Cave Base and Slingers. Not sure if anyone managed game fish but it was not for the lack of trying. Early part of this week will be a bit bumpy with the mouth probably too rough to launch. Wednesday and Thursday may be better days to fish.
