Grumpy’s fishing report

30 November 2021 | Fishing

Some decent fish were caught at Paaltjies this past week.

Landing the big ones is quite a tough feat and it was the more experienced anglers that reeled in some good-sized fish. Some of the fish brought ashore were quite big and weighed up to 15kg.

Baits such as sardines, chokka and octopus were used.

The fish were mostly caught in the vicinity of the whale carcass (round about the 2nd tripod area) towards the fence that borders Sandwich harbour.

The distance one had to cast was quite far so long rods did the trick.

On low tide, the anglers waded through the gulley onto the sandbank and then got extra distance in doing so.

Longbeach had some terrific action for the shark anglers with some decent bronze whalers being landed. Mackerel was the bait of choice.

Just remember, that area has a lot of crabs so one needs to put a lot of floatation onto the hook to keep the crabs from eating your bait. This can be avoided by firstly putting the float on and building the bait around the float. Also, bronzies have super sharp teeth so one needs to use steel to tie the hook on. Some of these bronzies that were caught this past week where well over 100kgs.

The fishing around the area of Swakopmund was up and down with some pan sized fish caught for the pan. Bennie se rooi lorrie was probably the pick of the week with the most quantities of kob being caught around that area.

Further north just north of Cape Cross right up to the Ugab river some good sized kob were caught and also the odd steenbras.

Summer is here, so remember to take your sun screen along when heading to the ocean. The sun also reflects of the sea which makes it even more likely for angler to sustain sunburn.

The conditions for the upcoming week look fantastic! Tight lines until next time.
