Grumpy’s fishing report

25 October 2019 | Fishing

Outdoor Centre • Grumpy Gramowsky

The ocean did not entirely produce nothing though, as Louis Fenaux went fishing at Mile 72 and brought ashore a thick lip, or “diklip” or “stoomtrein” in Afrikaans.

The fish was caught on octopus and released after a quick photo.

Longbeach produced a few galjoen, however the presence of seaweed was a bit of an irritation.

A few blacktail were caught at Vierkantklip.

Anglers are waiting for the bigger kob from up north. I guess they will be here quicker than the All Blacks on a loose ball. Having said that, the beaches have been a little less crowded and fished due to the Rugby World Cup.

Mossie Mostert from Walvis Bay tried his luck with mullet as bait at Mile 14 and was rewarded with a big, smooth hound shark which he released again.

I had the opportunity to go and fish in Angola. See some of the photos of Romano Gabrielson who caught a massive kob, Renier van Zyl with a beast of a short-tailed ray also called a black “pylie”. These were among the outstanding catches. Visit me for more juicy fishing stories about Angola.

Moray eels, pargo, sea pike, kob, blacktail and shad were amongst the suspects that were pulled ashore. Lots of species of sharks were also landed.

Catching shad on lures is a fantastic experience. Everyone should give it a go as these fish are tremendous fighters.
I hope the water calms down in the following week and that the fish will become bigger and heavier. Tight lines until next week.
