Friday afternoon Bobby got stuck into a Diamond Ray and had it on his line for one and a half hrs., a boat was used to help land the fish but it eventually broke loose, this was on a 6ft river rod with 15lg Line and a number 2 hook unlucky Bobby, the video of part of the fight is on the FB page. The river carried on producing fish throughout the day in interestingly a Rock Salmon or River Snapper was landed at the main car park. Saturday was again a day of action and adding to the species, I fine Young Malabar Rockcod was landed as well as more Cob, interesting thing was size Cob and Grunter were landed during the day as mainly they are caught early morning of evening.
Was quiet but for those that put in the effort were rewarded with, Garrick, Diamonds, Cob, Cat face Rockcod. The sea settled after Friday and was fishable. The week ahead looks okay nothing to set the world alight but with the wind swinging like it does should keep the side wash away. Our condolences to the family of the Angler that got swept off the rocks at Vidal and drowned. Please guys remember the Golden Rule when rock and surf fishing………Never turn your back on the sea.
Ski BoatNot a weekend for the boats I am afraid. Gavin came up from Durban on Thursday morning and took advantage of the window in the morning and was well rewarded the last boat to do so. This week it does not look good unless you want to try fish a few afternoon sessions. The water is a bit discolored so maybe a long trip out might bring cleaner water. Tight lines.
