Fishing Report 14 September 2020
Weather for the Week.
Apart from Tuesday we in for another cool week with South wind on most days and over caste.
The road will be closed to the slipway from today till Thursday at the latest, Scribante Construction can get on with repairing the road. You can still fish in the main car park area. Fishing over the weekend was good for those that ventured in to the wind, the main species caught were River Bream of various sizes and most were caught on Prawn tails, other species reported were Spotted Grunter, Bar Tail, Stumpnose (Big Eye and Cape) but no River Snapper of Pickhandle Barracuda. Recently a Nondi Kob was caught which is not a common visitor to our river, it had a lice on its tongue similar to the ones the Spotted Pompano get. I was at the lagoon this morning and there were 3 anglers, they had caught a Spotted Grunter and released it but they were having a good time.
Friday night was good fishing and a lot of Kob were caught at various places then from Saturday things slowed down with mainly small Shad Spinners and some Rockcod been caught. I was down at the beach for a while this morning and the conditions were great there were 4 guys fishing but I did not see them catching a fish.
The road will be closed to the slipway from today till Thursday at the latest, Scribante Construction can get on with repairing the road Over the weekend for the guys who went our reported very few fish been boated but plenty of whale activity, Gert and Marius had the fortunate experience of a whale breeching and posing right next to their boat which more than made up for the slow fishing.
