Some catches were made on Friday before the storm and we suspect with all the rain on Saturday and Saturday night the water coloured and Sunday was a very slow day. Some Anglers did venture to the lagoon after the rain stopped late morning, the best places to fish would have been the mouth area as the water would have been cleaner there.
On Saturday evening I received a message from young Chris Camping at Cape Vidal informing me Mtunzini main beach has just passed him. New Directions to our main beach is as follows. Head to Cape Vidal and turn sharp right as you get onto the beach and walk for 6km and you will see the familiar land marks go a further 2km and you will find Doggies Beach. For those looking for Paaljies at Tugela mouth they are slightly left of the main car park in the reserve. Wow what an angry sea we had over the weekend. I am hoping the weed and side wash starts settling so we can get fishing again.
Due to incumbent weather we have nothing to report. People are asking about the NSRI donation life boat. The NSRI have done away with that system of collecting donations and are going to replace it with another system which will enable the money to go straight into the bank at the moment we are collecting change in a tub and will transfer it to them via this new system, we are told it will be ready early this year.
