Grumpy’s fishing report

The Wlotzkas fishing area delivered a lot of fish including blacktail, galjoen and some big kob.

Steyn van der Werwe went fishing there and with his very first cast caught a beauty weighing in at a respectable 4kg.

Just south of Wlotzkas galjoen were caught at the Black Rocks. Mile 14 also provided some pan sized fish.

Bennie se Rooi Lorrie produced some nice edibles too.

Reports of shark catches especially spotted gully sharks were received from anglers doing their thing along the entire coast line. For the sport fishermen this is a dream come true.

Jakkalsputz delivered spotties almost cast after cast and some other specimens too. Henry Loubser help a client to land a massive spotty on an excursion.

Ruschdeen de Klerk and friends went fishing and were rewarded with some excellent blacktail. White mussel did the trick as it often does with blacktail and galjoen.

Doep se Gat and Horingbaai provided a number of good specimen in the 3-7kg range.

The run still hasn’t started, however, and it should be the case soon though. The kob will then be quite fun to catch but stay in your limits of only two fish over 70cm or you could get a hefty fine from the fisheries inspectors on duty.

Badewanne and Patrysberg on either side of Vierkantklip provided some good crayfish too. Remember the limit is 7 per person per day. It's also a good idea to have a buddy with you in case of an emergency or in case of cramping up. The sea is sometimes harsh and unforgiving, so respect the ocean and you should be safe.

An Interclub competition took place at Mile 108. All sharks caught were measured and returned to the ocean immediately. Edibles were targeted too.

Speaking to a few anglers the feeling was that some big kob may just be caught in very calm conditions.

Tight lines until next time!
