The lagoon fished well for some and not for others, I was with a group that did not have one run we had Mac fillets, Chokka, Mac heads, live mullet but got nothing. The lucky others got some nice size Pickhandle Barracuda, River Bream and River Snapper. Up at the mouth the Diamonds were on the sand banks on Saturday afternoon with an angler nearly stepping on a “monster of a Diamond” and getting a hiding from another that took his Rapala. To cap it off a crocodile was seen basking on the side of the river near the River Land estate.
On Friday some big Shad and Spinners were caught then the weather turned for the worse making fishing on Saturday very difficult and on Sunday we were faced with a screaming sidewash that made short work of a 8oz sinker, however that did not deter young Jonah who is on holiday from near Cape Town, while drift bait fishing he managed to land his first Spotted Pompano, we done you man I think you were the only guy to catch a fish on Sunday.
Reports from Richards Bay ski boaters that braved the sea and weather fishing was tough with a lot of boats getting no fish, one of the charters managed 1 Kob between all the anglers, the guys put it down to the water been very green and cold.
On Saturday we are hosting a Shad Competition starting at 6 am till 5 pm, you may fish for as long as you like during that time. Entry fee is R15.00 per angler and will be used to fund a meat hamper which will be first prise.
Boundaries are from the South bank of the river mouth to passed the Chalets.
Your ticket will be issued on Friday evening.
To win you need to send a photo via watsup to me with your ticket and fish on top of a ruler, we are measuring from the mouth to the fork in its tail.
