Grumpy’s fishing report
09 June 2020 | Fishing
Danny Rhode was one such angler. He fished at Mile 12 and tried his luck working from the desalination plant back towards Swakopmund without success.
His last stop was Mile 12 where he got stuck into some great galjoen. Danny used white mussel as bait and landed a massive 50cm monster of a fish, or in anglers terms a “botterkop”.
Mike de Jager, who fished between the Mile 8 parking area and Wit Klippe, reported landing some decent sized galjoen.
Angling conditions for this weekend look great. One can expect some big steenbras to be caught in these calm conditions.
Mile 72 close to the fence also produced some fish. Anglers fishing with white mussel were adequately rewarded with blacktail, steenbras and galjoen pulled to the shore.
Decent fish were also landed at the area of the 3rd toilet south of Mile 72.
Even the Omaruru river mouth surprised with some size galjoen for the “braai” stand.
Kob were a little bit less abundant. However, this situation should change through the course of the upcoming week. Full moon tends to have a good impact on the fishing waters. This in turn is the cause of excitement for anglers.
The ski boats have also caught some nice kob, especially in the areas of Mile 8 and Mile 14. The fish they hauled in, ranged from just size to about 3kg.
The going was not easy for the shark anglers, with only a few spotted gulley sharks caught. It looks like the bronzies are a bit scarce for now. Rest assured, as soon as the edibles come closer, the sharks should follow.
