Our little shop is a tackle shop and not a institute of advanced criminology …….so many people ask us how to smuggle beers into the parks board area as unfortunately due to historic circumstances unless you are staying in the park you may not take alcohol into the park over the festive season and somehow people think we can smuggle as well as fish, we do have a good laugh about that.
Be very careful when at the lagoon especially with small kids as there are a lot of very small Jelly Fish in the water and they are alive so therefore the “Sting” will be on function mode. We have no idea where they came from and how long they will stay there, they seem to be quiet happy swimming up and down for now, we are hoping they bite the Gill Netters.
This weekend Zululand Rock and Surf held their annual Turkey trot at Mtunzini and fished it as a common venue, the SW was blowing yet the guys still managed 14 Diamonds which goes to show they can be caught in that wind but not in big numbers. Lots of small sharks Shad and Snapper Kob were caught. Much to one of my informant’s disgust he got a Small Spinner Shark double up on a 2 hook rig meant for bigger sharks. Doggie beach proved to be the place to be with an angler fishing socially decided to swim a Diamond and was rewarded with a very big Zambie I don’t have the length or weight but judging from the photo and my limited Zambie experience I would put it at 130kg plus.
The big fish are here.
As I am compiling this report I have no news on any boating activity, I heard of one boat that was going out yesterday but with that SW blowing it could not have been fun out there. News just in the boat stayed safe at home.
