Was very busy but with mainly small catches and those that were at the spots never reported any big fish landed. In the evening saw a turn around with some nice decent size Grunter caught.
A big Javelin (Morph) Grunter was landed of 3.2 kg from the main beach, normally these are Grunter of this size is landed by the Ski Boats. This was caught in the same area as the Rockcod are. I.e. main beach in front of the Siyayi. Apart from that lots of Cob and Snapper Cob were caught, the Cob were all undersized and returned. I quote a Zululand Angler “there was defiantly something big out there over the weekend”.
Not a good weekend for fishing the boats that went out of Richards Bay had Tax problems and the good old Sharks were making a nuisance of themselves as a result not many fish were boated.
