Grumpy’s fishing report

29 September 2020 | Fishing

The big kob have finally arrived!

I was flooded by reports this week of some big boys being pulled ashore. This time the fishing areas like Doep se gat and Horingbaai produced the magic. Canopy was also in the mix.

Most kob were being caught against the sand banks in these areas. Long deep casts did the trick with pilchards and baby squid being the baits that worked best.

Other areas that also produced were the likes of the Winston wreck and Skilpadklip. The Winston wreck also had a lot of spotted gulley sharks in the area.

Jarret Mouton and his dad Mario tried their luck at the fishing hole in search of kob. However, they got more than they bargained for with the sharks readily took their bait. Jarret managed to catch his personal bests spotty of 15kg.

Back to Doep se gat. The sandbanks are quite distant, with your cast having to be over 120m if you wanted to get a bite.

The fish were of a good size and were averaging 7kg with some over 10kgs being pulled ashore.

The north wind had a negative effect on the fishing. This wind usually makes the ocean a very clean colour and it affects fish bites. A better wind would be the usual southwester which brings colour to the water and with it the fish start biting again.

Having said that, the fishing should improve again in the next week.

Bennie se rooi lorrie again delivered its fair share of galjoen with Grys duintjie also adding some kob and galjoen closer to Henties.

The conditions really look favourable in the next week, so go and wet a line whenever the chance presents itself!

Tight lines, singing reels and bended rods until next time!
