Grumpy’s fishing report

25 August 2020 | Fishing

Big swells experienced early in the week made for some decent galjoen catches.

The banks of Mile 106 were really productive, while closer to Swakopmund, Vierkantklip delivered some kob caught on white mussel as bait.

Other areas that were also quite hot were at the Zeila wreck towards Galjoenfonteins side.

Just south of the Zeila, Bennie se rooi lorrie also produced some fish.

The pump station close to the Saltpans in the vicinity of the Mile 6 area provided some galjoen and kob.

The bait of choice was white mussel. Kob generally prefer sardines but readily take white mussel too. Most fish eat white mussel, so it’s always a good bait to use should you want some dinner.

The ski boats also caught some kob right in front of the Platz am Meer mall. I spoke to captain Buks who confirmed that the young kob are biting.

Buks said he quickly filled his quota on his ski boat. Some boats launch at the mall and some at the Mole. It’s a kind of fuel-saving thing. The ski boats use the Mole to get to Vierkantklip and the Platz am Meer launch site to get to Mile 6.

The shark anglers have been relatively quiet due to the rough water. Calmer water should see some increased activity close to shore. Target areas would be the Jakkalsputz Bay at especially the 3rd toilet from the south. It provides the angler with thick and deep water which sharks love.

Another area to target bronzies is Mile 8, about 50m to the north of the parking area. Bait to be used could be any fresh fish especially the heads. Mackerel and yellowtail are the preferred baits for the toothy critters.

Predictions also look good for the upcoming week with calm seas all round.

Mile 32 to Wlotzkasbaken should be good areas for fishing.

Until next time. Tight lines!
