The much awaited Grunter run is here, nice size fish were caught all over the river and lots of them. I Malabar Rockcod was caught off about 2kg, nice size on light tackle. Judging by the sales of lures over the weekend it seems as those are working and catches of King fish are ben made, the water has defiantly warmed up and is over 22 deg some places higher. Very big crabs are being caught and so long as you have a license you may catch 3 per day with a rod and line but not by any other means.
Was tough going due to the high seas and windy conditions, catches of Shad and small sharks were made but to be fair to the non ed guys sliding big baits was not going to happen.
If ever this was a long weekend of river or harbor fishing, pity as at one stage the water looked good but for the rest of the time the sea was covered in white horses.
News from the Shop.
