The lagoon is nice and full and the fish seem to be hungrier than in the sea, the water is a lot cooler than it has been, probably due to the rain we had. Some smash ups and good runs were had on the weekend and anglers reported catching several different species, one boat recorded 9 different species if you add a Puffer and a Crab with one claw.
Fishing was no so great over the weekend, Friday’s wind caused a strong side wash for most of Saturday only calming down on Sunday, there were anglers at the banks and at various spots in the area but no decent catches were made. Seems like it was only rats and mice caught.
Yesterday some guys went out for a fish, Nanook managed a few Tuna far out while the Rock and surf angling guys went out on Chukka looking for bait for their comp next weekend the trip was not very successful so they resorted to scratching for some bottoms, like all the boats fishing close in they struggled. Looking ahead this week seems like Tuesday and Wednesday are the best days to go out. Amatikulu Ski Boat club are holding their annual Cape to Rio competition at the end of the week, let us hope the weather holds for them.
