Grumpy’s fishing report

19 November 2018 | Fishing

GRUMPY GRAMOWSKY, OUTDOOR CENTRE

The big fish seem to be avoiding the fishermen’s hooks and bait at the moment.

It was very quiet, especially up north. The wind and waves also didn’t play along but I received super reports of catches from around Henties and Swakopmund.

Conditions at Mile 6 to Mile 11 were really good for galjoen and kob. Some of my close friends like Clint and Lindie went for a couple of casts after work. They were rewarded with some nice kob in the 55 cm range which make for great eating. Lindie also caught a few sand sharks which kept her busy.

Nicoleen Coetzee reeled in a nice kob on her light tackle at Mile 11 with white mussel. She says the water was a bit clean so she decided to use white mussel instead of sardine. Great call, Nicolene.

Hubert Dentlinger tried his luck at Mile 10 with white mussel and was rewarded with two galjoen with one cast. Talk about killing two birds with one stone. The best thing about his two galjoen was that they were both size. Nice one, Hubert.

Johan de Meyer also provided a report of nice kob and sand sharks that he caught at Mile 4. He just had to walk down to the beach from his house. Shows you, one doesn’t have to drive hundreds of kilometres all the time to catch some fish.

I also received reports of fish caught at Trappies, Popeye and Mile 68. No huge but size fish were caught and brought to the dinner table.

We should definitely wait for the water to become calm and I have no doubt the fish will start biting again up north and will be of decent size.

Remember that Paaltjies will also start producing some big fish. Please take only what you can eat. These kob will be spawning and they depend on us for next year’s stock to be healthy in numbers.

The crayfish guys are struggling as the water was a bit rough and the wind pretty strong.

The next week should produce more colour from the strong “South Wester” and both fish and crayfish should come in.

The snoek guys also couldn’t go out in the strong winds and they too waited for calmer seas.

I can however tell you conditions for next week will definitely be better.

Keep those hooks sharp and lines tight.
