Grumpy's fishing report

Interesting week indeed, with few catches reported.

Brown water up north and clean water around Swakopmund - neither what the anglers want.

Yet that won't keep the optimistic anglers­ from testing their skill against our old foes.

Let's start with what I think is the most outstanding catch of the week. Wlotzkasbaken's very own Murray Lewis caught a monster kob at Wlotzkas black rocks (not to be confused with the angling spot at Jakkalsputz also called Black Rocks). Not only did he catch this magnificent kob, he successfully released it and managed to catch another nine sized kob in the same area. Murray is a seasoned ­angler and tallies his catches in a notebook. Years of info on paper and even more in experience. Well done, Murray!

Not to be outdone was Delbert Grobler who went fishing around Swakopmund's Mile 4 and Mile 6 area. He put on his favourite bait, namely white mussel, in search of galjoen. His light tackle outfit bent double and after a tug of war he was rewarded with a respectable 1.9kg galjoen. I hope it tasted delicious.

Kobus van Schalkwyk ventured to the northern fishing grounds, namely the lighter wreck close to the Skeleton Coast border. There he cast out his line and was struck by a ferocious, mean fighting machine, the sought after steenbras or “diklip”, as the anglers call them. This fish too was released unharmed.

The ski boat anglers are still catching respectable amounts of snoek, although it has become slightly slower. It will, however, pick up again and the season usually runs until January/February before the snoek ventures away into other feeding areas.

I am fortunate enough to be heading to Angola in search of some fish, so hold thumbs for some exciting catches. Due to the fishing trip, I won't be able to report on our anglers catches in next week's edition.

For those going angling, tight lines!
