NE gusting 22 for most of the day. Max temp 38. Barometer 1005 dropping to 997 rising to 1007 (we have not seen a barometer reading so low for about 6 months). Wave height 2.4 dropping to 2.2m period 13.
Finally starting to clear up and fishing should be back to normal in the next few days, this weekend was tough fishing with nothing really significant caught.
Very slow going due to the colour of the water, best fished over the high tide period. Weed and side wash are gone. Nice captures of Cob were reported and the first Diamond since the summer ended. Was caught of Sard with no leader at all as the Angler was targeting Cob.
Colour is slowly returning to the bay so conditions should be good for fishing later in the week. A Garrick of 23kg was boated from Richards Bay by a local Angler, just when we thought they had turned back to the Cape. Time to go looking for game fish as they are been caught North and South of us.
