Grumpy's fishing report
06 October 2020 | Fishing
Sure, the galjoen like the rougher water. A decent amount were pulled ashore and pretty much the entire coastline gave some delicious galjoen.
The better news is that after the full moon and springtide, the water will become calmer and after the strong three days of south west wind we can assume that the big kob will readily take the bait.
Personally, I will hit the beach just north of Canopy but other areas like Winston and Bakleigat should also work.
The ski boats are still getting snoek with the odd yellowtail also being caught. A fresh yellowtail is an amazing braai fish and as we all know, so is snoek. Lets hope that this season is going to be a longer one than the years before. Usually the snoek season will go all the way until February.
The ski boats are concentrating on snoek for the time being as they are heavier and easier to catch should one find the school of fish.
The shark anglers have been a bit quieter due to the springtide with heavy swells making the fishing a bit tougher.
But this is going to change quickly again and the rods should bend over double very soon.
With the big kob being expected, one can be quite certain that the sharks will be around too.
Generally the more northern fishing areas bring bigger sized fish to the beach. The likes of octopus, baby squid, sardines, pike and horse mackerel will do the trick.
Until next week, tight lines!
