Grumpy’s Fishing Report

Paaltjies, jou lekker ding!

Last weekend fishing at Paaltjies worked out superbly, with some great fish being caught.

Henko Henno and Henri Snyman went early last Sunday and were immediately rewarded with some big fish on their hooks.

Each caught their quota of two fish over 80 cm and had great fun in the process. Henno’s fish weighed a decent 12 kg.

The fish were indeed present and came out close to the southern border and at the whale bone about 1.5 km south from the parking lot.

Remember to put a float in your bait so it lifts the bait just off the bottom. There are a lot of crabs present at Paaltjies and they can quickly destroy your bait.

Reports have also come in from the Pump station, Mile 32, Mile 72 and Skuins Rif where mostly decent size kob were reeled in.

With the kob come the sharks. Dirk de Bod and his son Dirk junior went fishing at Mile 17 at a spot which is 50 m to the right of the pole.

They used yellowtail and bonita heads as bait. Dirk junior had to react quickly with a 90 kg bronze whaler which he finally managed to land after 40 minutes.

Dirk junior had another throw and soon was struggling with a second bronzy which was a bit bigger and stronger. The female bronzy resisted for hours before it was pulled ashore.

After measuring the lady with a weight of an amazing 110 kg she was put back into the deep blue. Well done indeed.

Fishing spots closer to Swakopmund also provided some decent fish all week long. Very few anglers came home empty handed.

Roets Marais took his freshwater rod to catch some galjoen and was rewarded with a 4 kg kob at the pump station. Not bad on light tackle. I am sure he enjoyed the fight.

As mentioned earlier the kob that were caught further up north were of a better size. Catches weighing up to 14 kg have been reported.

The conditions are very favourable for fishing during the course of the coming week and I look forward to hear about the catches. Wishing all tight lines!
