Grumpy's fishing report
12 November 2019 | Fishing
The Cymot Corporate Angling competition held recently was a huge success.
About 50 four-man teams entered, which means 200 anglers were in action.
Fishing started at 6 a.m. on Friday and most guys fished in the Canopy area, and at Horingbaai, Winston and Mile 72.
The conditions were great, but the fishing was on the slow side. Most teams managed to weigh in their allowed four fish per day.
The fishing improved considerably on day 2 of the competition, with the winning fish brought in at Mile 72 and Canopy respectively.
Jacques le Roux walked away as the winner of the single biggest fish category with a kob of 9.540kg. Great fish indeed.
The team standings were as follows:
1. Team Klipdrift 24.115kg
2. Team Alumax 20.060kg
3. Team Amco Inv 17.790kg
The biggest fish winners were:
Blacktail: Charles Bothma 1.4kg
Galjoen: Kobus van Schalkwyk 1.505kg
Steenbras: Maritz 7.62kg
Kob: Jacques le Roux 9.540kg
Fishing in the vicinity of Swakopmund was a bit better last week with Mile 14 being the hotspot.
Plenty of 3 to 5kg fish were caught. Henry van Bosch even managed to better that weight with a kob of 13kg.
Blacktail catches were also reported along the entire coastline. Galjoen were also caught in a couple of days when the water was a bit on the rough side.
I can confidently say that some of the bigger kob have finally arrived. Canopy and Horingbaai were, as expected, the hotspots.
Alex Coetzee (77) caught a massive kob at Mile 72. Hats off to you for showing the youngsters how it's done.
Tight lines until next time!
