After all the big rain over the weekend especially last night, expect to see the river running strongly and the water very discolored, it will be fishable but slower than it has been recently. Some early birds have gone to try their luck in the lagoon, they are aware of the water conditions but want to get out anyway.
Side wash and weed, side wash and weed. After the 2 big storms over the weekend the surf will be a mess making fishing very difficult. Prior to the storms Shad and varies small species of Shark were caught and we expect fishing to get back to normal later in the week. Nobody was targeting ineds that we know of but it is time to start. The beach clean-up was a success if one wants to call 1250kg of rubbish good. Thanks to the Parks Board Staff and Honory Officers for arranging this.
A very quiet weekend unless one fished Richards Bay harbor, the sea was not kind bar a small window on Saturday morning and I think most felt not worth the expense with the South coming through mid-morning.
