Where, oh where have the fish gone?



In the absence of fish being caught, I am rather focusing on the recent interclub competition held at Mile 8.

The designated fishing area was from the old pump station to Mile 14's southern border.

About 220 anglers from across the country took part. The sharks were few and far between despite it being more a shark-orientated competition.

Henri Snyman from Penguin Angling Club in Swakopmund caught the biggest shark during the tournament. What a beauty the massive 38 kg spotted gulley shark was! Definitely an achievement to treasure and to be proud of.



Special species

Wikus Viljoen also managed to reel in a garrick. What a way to start the competition. He was fishing at the sandbank just south of Mile 8. The Afrikaans name for this very elusive specie is leervis.

Very few kob and galjoen were caught, with just the odd sand shark and ray being weighed/measured and then released.

Mile 72 had some nice galjoen on offer with reports of fish up to 42 cm in size caught. A lot of shad were caught again this week, especially close to Swakopmund in the Mile 4 to Mile 7 area.

I am wondering when the northern shores are going to deliver some big fish again. Could it be possibly this weekend?

It might very well be that Horingbaai, Canopy and Maketus turn might start firing on all cylinders again.

I am fortunate enough to be attending the friendly fishing competition between SKW Football Club from Windhoek and SFC from Swakopmund. A report on the activities could be forthcoming next week.

The water temperature is exceptionally warm (21 ºC) at the moment. Almost tropical waters one could say.

This past Sunday garrick was targeted by the artificial lure anglers around Mile 8 and they were rewarded with fish between 3 kg and 7 kg.

Until the next edition, tight lines!
