Needle Scale Queenfish, Malabar Rockcod, Shad, Bartail, brassy Kingfish, River Bream and River Snapper not a bad collection of species caught buy the same angler young Ken on Saturday afternoon at various places, of all the species caught he caught more than one of, well done Ken.
Of all the fish caught over the weekend the stand out must be the biggest Milky myself and most others have seen Desmond got it in front of the Chalets of Friday afternoon. The Shad were full up as they say but the majority not making size yet, they are fast growers and need to eat like crazy to get out of the food chain as are the baby Hammers. Other species caught were Spinners and Snapper Kob however Prof bagged about a 4kg Square Tail Kob at Doggies yesterday evening on an old Red Eye, he was the only one there, see what we missed out. Diamonds have been on the go slow and I am not sure any were caught even at the Banks, although some Browns came out.
Action took Nanook out of Richards’s Bay on Saturday morning and returned with some nice Tuna. The guys tried to launch out of the mouth but the surf was up with close periods so after watching the conditions they returned to the slipway, I am not sure of the jet skis made it out as I know Louis never went but Merriman was going to.
