Grumpy’s fishing report
26 November 2018 | Fishing
Not this time though.
Fishing was really tough this past week. What can we put the blame on? Clean water . . . check, lots of loose kelp . . . check, lack of the southwesterly wind . . . check.
It is however not all bad news as the full moon is upon us and the water will push higher and pull further back at low tide.
If the fish isn’t biting then you could dive for some crayfish or pick some black mussels as the rocks will be open way further than usual.
Few kob came out and none I can say were in the wow category.
Bennie se Rooi Lorrie produced a few galjoen and also Vierkantklip delivered some black tail.
Between the Zeila, Die Walle and Black Rocks some decent galjoen were also caught. So too at Trappies.
The reports from up north have been slow with single or no fish being caught.
I hope I am right in predicting that after this coming Wednesday’s huge swell, the water will turn for the better, the fish will start feeding again and that the loose kelp would have been pushed onto the shore.
The guys on the ski boats have been catching young but size kob at Vierkantklip and a few better sized fish at Mile 14.
The snoek have moved a bit but should be back soon.
There was a rock and surf competition held at Winston last weekend and the fishing was seriously tough.
I am happy to say that Penguin Angling Club from Swakopmund caught a few decent sharks and took overall first place for the day. Well done, lads.
Greetings until our next report. I sincerely hope that your rods will bend over with tight lines and that those reels will sing with delight.
