Grumpy's fishing report

Some anglers experienced great catches while others had tough times next to the ocean.

We are right into winter with super cold weather at the coast this past week.

Galjoen have been on the bite despite the relatively calm water. The smaller fish joined in which meant one had to rebait quite a lot before being rewarded with a nice size galjoen.

The blacktail caught were of decent size. Little Dylan Scholtz from Swakopmund was a very lucky angler. He was fishing with granddad Ferdi Doll a little north of Wlotzkasbaken.

Dylan, who is only 7 years old, for sure knows how to handle his fishing rod.

A tug of war ensued and he emerged as the eventual winner. Great fish, Dylan, and keep on catching big fish.

Some areas produced some nice galjoen and blacktail but the steenbras and kob were a bit scarce.

It's not that no kob were caught. They were indeed landed, but few and far between. If you were lucky enough to catch one, we say “well played”.

Next week's conditions seem to be favourable for more galjoen action. Bear in mind that as a rule of thumb all the months that end with the letter 'r' are usually kob fishing months. So we can look forward to another couple of months of good galjoen catches.

The ski boats also reported kob catches. Sizes are varying between under size and just over size. A few nice ones were caught between Mile 8 and the deep reef at Mile 17.

The shark anglers brought ashore a few hound sharks, called “spierhaai” in Afrikaans, due to its powerful runs once hooked. They take most bait on offer including mullet, sardine and mackerel.

A few spotties have also been landed. Both these sharks do not have sharp teeth so they are quite easily handled when putting them back into the water to fight another day.

Until next week, tight lines!
