We have no reports of activity from the lagoon during the week, however although we had rain it seems to have soaked in and not effected the water colour a great deal.
To be honest fishing has been very quiet due to incumbent weather. The highlight of the week was Peter Jacobs from UFUNDU TOURS came to do a talk on turtles, he had everybody spell bound for 2 hrs speaking about how turtles grow up and their importance to our oceans it was mind blowing to say the least. Did you know they are important in moving plankton from the depths of the ocean to the water surface? I highly recommend going on a turtle tour. There are guys down on the beach but I think they will struggle with the big swell first thing as the surf was up this week.
The bottoms comp has been postponed due to incumbent weather over the weekend.
