There goes my little fish in the lagoon theory because the mouth is closed. Diamond 87kg, Spotted Grunter 1.2kg, River gurnard 1.3kg (Have not seen one that big for ages) and various other fish were caught this week. Mmmmmm thinking a trip to the stone wall will be in order, this spot can be reached via Port Dunford.
Big comp at Port Durnford on Saturday and the way the Bay has been fishing and Port Durnford a big catch can be expected, this is the first comp of the season in our waters. The water is very much discolored and the surf is up, today will be very tough conditions but this should calm in time for the weekend. The snapper are still here and in big numbers, some very big Shad were caught earlier in the week, 3kg plus specimens. Still 2 weeks left for the closed season.
Sunday looks like a good day to go out and hopefully by then the colour will be back in the water. Surf conditions look good. Mouth still closed so either push off the beach or go to Richards Bay and Amatikulu. The swell is currently still running South North after the wind we had aver the last 2 days.
