Grumpy’s fishing report

What an awesome fishing weekend it was indeed.

Thresher sharks made an appearance at Long Beach. These sharks have a super long tail which they use to stun fish before they eat them.

Nearly half its total length consists of the elongated upper lobe of the tail fin.

This specie is primarily found in tropical waters and feeds on pelagic schooling fish like juvenile tuna and mackerel.

Joerg Walter from Walvis Bay went fishing with a few of his friends they were lucky enough to catch four in one day. That’s quite an accomplishment. Well done, Joerg.

Two fishing clubs, Sport Klub Windhoek (SKW) and Swakopmund Football Club (SFC), went head to head at Mile 108.

The fishing was slow with decent sized kob caught. Heinzi Schulte managed to catch a mullet which is quite uncommon. He enticed it with white mussel.

I, on the other hand, was quite surprised to hook a medium sized octopus. I dare not say that I released it as it is probably the best bait to use for steenbras along our coast.

SFC turned out to have the heaviest edible caught by none other than Angelo Garces. Cello Baas, also from Swakopmund, caught the heaviest shark, fittingly on his birthday. Well done to the beach boys.

Canopy, however, surprised and produced a massive sized fish. Our South African counterparts were visiting and caught a 16 kg fish using sardine.

Closer to Swakopmund the galjoen also started biting at the Mile 13 area and at the “Spoelklippe” close to the salt pans. Very few steenbras catches have been reported but the occasional black tail was caught at Patrysberg close to Vierkantklip.

Conditions for the weekend look a bit bleak with high seas expected. Galjoen is all that could be present and bite in that sort of water.

Tight lines to everyone!
