Grumpy's fishing report

14 July 2019 | Fishing

Outdoor Centre • Grumpy Gramowski



We experienced quite an eventful week of fishing, with a number good catches of galjoen reported in the Canopy and Kaketus areas. Good kolstert, galjoen and steenbras were also caught further up north all the way to Terrace Bay.

Studente Bay at Terrace Bay produced a lot of kol-stert while the galjoen and steenbras were in abundance in the vicinity of Kudu Kop.

Louis Fenaux took clients to the sand bars (shallow sandy areas) at Mile 106. They fished with a combination of crayfish tails and white mussel as bait. Stian hooked a huge fish which he managed to subdue after 15 minutes. The reward was a massive steenbras of 16 kg! Not only was this a once in a lifetime catch but the fish was released again to fight another day.

Trappies, located just north of Henties Bay, also rendered its fair share of well-sized fish. Mainly galjoen that bite on mussel and redbait were landed.

The Jakkalsputz area delivered pan-sized kob and at Black Rock the galjoen were also on the bite, with a few size steenbras in the mix.

Andre van Niekerk from the ministry of fisheries in Swakopmund asked me to catch some spotted gulley sharks for the aquarium and organised through the fisheries department and the municipality that we could fish in front of the aquarium. With the green light given, we headed down to the beach after work.

My friends Dries van Zyl and Donavin Bezuidenhout accompanied me on the mission. We put out mullet as bait and soon had two average sized spotties of about 10 kg each hooked. We removed the hooks with speed and 30 seconds later the spotties were carried into the aquarium and released without harm into their new home.

Go support our beautiful aquarium as the entrance is super cheap and they do a heck of a good job down there. Thanks Andre for the opportunity to do something for the community.

In the coming week, the weather prediction looks a bit tougher with high seas expected to arrive. The wave swell could reach as high as 3.5 meters. Such conditions are less favourable for kob hunting, but the galjoen might stay on the bite. Until next week. Tight lines!
