“ Hell guys you got stacks of fish in the lagoon” said a holiday maker, indeed we do they have had a good few days at the lagoon and are going shad fishing on the main beach today, all with their carp gear, just go to show it is how you fish. The lagoon is fishing well but no sign of the summer fish yet. The flat fish are still about and giving anglers a hard time.
Lots and Lots of shad and barbals. No Garrick or flat fish this week. Early morning and late evening some size Cob have been caught but in the main they are undersize, please put them back. My tactics for tomorrow afternoon is to slide a Sugar Mac and a Shad need a Garrick or 4.
Today and the rest of the weekend is looking good for fishing, our charter tomorrow is heading out to Pat's and then working that area. There are some jet skis out now fishing Home Reef first then moving south towards Glentons. Tomorrow some guys are heading for Richards Bay to target Garrick, they are still up here.
