Grumpy's fishing report
08 September 2020 | Fishing
The biggest kob landed was in the 14 kg weight class, with the steenbras weighing in the 12 kg class.
It is almost as if spring brings the bigger fish and there is definitely proof of this.
The Mile 100 banks also produced a lot of galjoen.
I must add that there were ample reports of good sized galjoen being caught along the entire coastline.
The preferable bait being used was mussel and pilchards, with a few well-sized steenbras that were caught at Paaltjies on a pilchard and chicken liver combo.
With the angling competitions on hold for the time being, the angling clubs are doing their best to keep their members fit and their skills up to scratch.
Walvis Bay angling club went to Jakkalsputz to target some toothy critters and boy oh boy did they have a good time.
The champ for the day was Werner van Riet, who managed to land five bronze whaler sharks and a couple of cowsharks.
Sean Oberg landed two sharks over 100 kg each. Well done! No harm was done to the sharks as they are returned to the water to fight on after a few photos.
Sharks can be caught on any bigger fish bait like mackerel, bonito or even any fresh galjoen of kob heads. However, one has to use nylon-coated steel to catch them due to their sharp teeth. A meter or so does the trick.
I am excited about the forecast. The conditions look really good for the week.
Until next edition, tight lines!
