Luca won the Kiddies Comp on Saturday, fishing was tough due in part to the lack of water however a Bream of over 30cm was landed, the second big one I have seen in the last few days. The mouth is very wide and deep and we think this is the reason the lagoon is very shallow at low tide. This is also why it is taking so long to fill out in the same time it empties very fast.
Friday night was very good for fishing with a group of guys landing 4 Raggies and a Diamond using Mullet and Mac’s, the Diamond was swam out but got eaten off buy a big fish. We not sure what it was. Another Huge 6kg Shad was landed during the day, Saturday and Sunday was fairly quiet on the beach with mainly little Spinners and Blacktip’s coming-out.
We took 2 guys out from Middle Burg on a Charter on Friday and they were well rewarded with 9 Species of fish. Javelin or Morph Grunter, Slinger, Soldier, Cat Faced Rockcod, Squaretail Cob, Rubber Lip, Cave Bass, Yellow Belly Rockcod and a Dane of 1.5kg. No gamefish were caught over the weekend that we know off. Needless to say the surf conditions changed on Sunday so we never went out.
Umlalazi Ski Boat club is planning to hold a Bottom Fishing Competition in August , more detail to follow.
