Grumpy’s fishing report

22 September 2020 | Fishing

The fishing was quite exciting, with the kob having returned in their masses.

You can already see more cars hitting the road up north to Canopy and Horingbaai, the two areas that were on fire the past week.

Henri Snyman was one angler that made the trip. He got stuck into kob and caught his allowed quota of 10 fish per person.

The kob were of good size with most being in the 3kg to 5kg range. He was also rewarded with a massive steenbras of 15kg which he caught on sardines at Canopy.

Not to be outdone was Louis Fenaux from Henties Bay, who went fishing at Horingbaai where the kob landed were slightly bigger with some hitting the 10kg mark.

The guys fishing a bit shallower and using white mussel as bait, caught a lot of galjoen and blacktail.

Mile 72 also delivered some decent fish with a good variety of fish taking the hooks. One really didn’t know which type of fish would take the bait next.

Closer to Swakopmund at Mile 14 north to be exact, some kob were also pulled on to the beach.

Mile 32 also produced good fish with the odd barbell also readily taking the bait.

The ski boat guys caught lots of blacktail at Vierkantklip especially during the calmer times of the week.

Charter owner, Mark Hoffmann, spoke to me and agreed that the fish are coming in faster now during the warmer months. He says the snoek will also be around soon. I can’t wait to braai some over the coals shortly.

The shark anglers have also been busy and caught quite a few of the toothy critters.

The likes of cow sharks and spotted gulley sharks being brought ashore were at the order of the day.

Especially the spotties are targeted as they are super strong fighters and give you a run for your money.

Donavin Bezuidenhoudt went fishing with his mates and they caught quite a few sharks at Mile 8. They also landed a few bronze whalers for good measure using Atlantic mackerel to target these ferocious fighters of the deep.

A good area to target these sharks is at the Mile 8 parking lot slightly to the north. You will observe the deep, dark water about 50m ahead of you. There is a long reef to the left of the parking area that shields the deeper water.

There is a RASSPL virtual angling competition taking place this weekend.

The conditions also look outstanding for the week. So pack your fishing gear and head down to the ocean for some vitamin sea!

Tight lines until next time.
