Don’t be shy to tackle up when fishing the lagoon, there were a few bust ups in the main car park, the blame is squarely on the Diamonds. Crabs seem to be stealing baits and made a strong showing to the left of the car park on Saturday afternoon. The water is still a bit murky and with rain forecast on most days it looks to remain like this all, week.
Saturday morning there was a strong side wash from the North, this is very unusual but as the tide pushed in it slackened off, this made sliding impossible however the fishing improved with lots of Snapper Cob and big Shad been landed. No big non eds but plenty of baby sharks. Catch of the day had to be a Grunter on a 3/0 hook, the hook was bigger than its head. Water colour is good for Cob and with no wind this morning those that have ventured down to the beach will be in with a chance.
Richards Bay seems to be the place to launch from for the next few days, or you can push off the beach. The bay is still very much discolored from the weather we had last week. Today with no wind at the moment the sea looks very bumpy from the wind we had yesterday.
News from the shop.
We currently have 9 types of bait in stock and they are all working however the hottest combos at the moment are Bait Prawn, Sard and Chokka.
