Now the silt has gone time to get stuck in, fishing was sow over the weekend and today being a work day I bet they lining up to be fed. The tide is coming in during the afternoon so an evening session with some nice Prawn on one stick and a lure on the other will be the way forward.
The big sharks that have been stripping the anglers and one was landed last Monday , a Raggie of 125kg, we have some Sugars and Chokka and slides so get the big stick out and have a crack at one of those back breakers. Don’t forget Diamonds, they like a live bait however DON’T use a Shad till December 1.
By all accounts very slow over the weekend, our charter managed 8 Species in 5 hrs, but know Game fish were seen or birds in the bay. One of the other boats foul hooked a whale, luckily they released quiet soon and cut the line. Water is still very green in the bay. Good luck to the guys going on the Amatikulu Cape Vidal trip.
