Grumpy’s fishing report
20 October 2020 | Fishing
Barnett Geldenhuis, Robert Brand and Stokkies went camping at St Nowhere and quickly got stuck into some hungry kob after pitching their camp.
They landed some great size fish, with a total of 30 between them for the weekend - the biggest weighing in at 7kg, with the majority of catches being between 4kg and 5kg.
A good fishing trip indeed.
Flippie Scheepers pulled ashore a 20kg kob and Nols Diederick landed a monster of 24.5kg at Mile 108.
Some massive fish indeed. Well done to the anglers.
Henri and Henko Snyman went fishing in the Winston wreck area. They also each reeled in their allowed 10 kob of decent size.
Not to be outdone, Popeye closer to Henties Bay, also produced loads of fish. A little to the northern side closer to Sarah se gat and Grysduintjie, also did not disappoint with some decent galjoen and blacktail caught.
The spotted gulley sharks were also on the hunt with some being caught in the 20kg range.
Activity at Vierkantklip around Swakopmund was quieter, as the colour of the water became super clear. This is not the best condition to catch fish. The water colour should be a darkish blue for the fish to feed readily and the south wester wind usually sorts this problem out.
The ski boat anglers reported getting some kob at Mile 6 and Mile 14.
The snoek on the other hand are still being elusive. The time is just about right for them to come on the bite now.
Tight lines until next week.
