We had a visitor here last week doing fly fishing in the lagoon, mainly in the vicinity of the Cob Farm outlet and was impressed of the amount of fish and species she caught. After the big gillnet incident 10 days ago we would have expected a lot more fish to have been caught but the big ones during the day seem to be very scarce unless you have a boat and can cover more water. The water is getting cleaner again and with the Buster that came through this afternoon the next few days will make beach fishing difficult to head for the lagoon.
Well Diamonds were a popping however most were caught on beach areas as opposed to the banks, in fact we hear on Sunday no Diamonds were caught on the banks. On Saturday afternoon an angler got picked at the Banks on his Diamond and taken over Glenton Reef and got reefed, they saw the Shark take the Diamond just in front of them but there was no stopping it. For the Edibles anglers main beach produced Snapper Cob and Shad, with some pompano’s. There are still baby Hammer Head Sharks and other small sharks to keep one busy. We have a lot of NE wind coming up in time for next weekend.
With the NE pumping like it did no boats launched, Sunday morning looked tempting but I think the wind was late it played on everybody’s mind. The water colour was good with the colour line really close to shore, but that is how it goes.
Monthly mug on the 4 Feb if the surf is up we will convert it to a River comp only. River boats can enter but will only be eligible for 3rd prize (first and Second prize reserved for the ski boats).
Kiddie’s clinic to be held on the 27th at the main carpark at the lagoon area followed by a Bring and Braai at the lappa in the ski boat club. Clinic starts at 14H00 till 16H00, prize giving at 16H30 in the Lappa.
