Game Fish Grand Slam.
Fishing Report – Durban – 26.01.2018
The past week has had some very difficult fishing conditions with the water very cold and temperatures under 21 deg.C, along with green water and so we have not been lucky with Game fish which is so frustrating, we have been getting bottoms with a lot of Slinger being caught, I am surprised at the amount of Black Tail around. We managed a nice Tropical Yellow tail on light spinning tackle off the bottom on one trip, and also some nice copper bream on another.
Today was a vast improvement and the strong SW winds have brought us some warmer and cleaner water and it looks like things will start getting better. We had a short 5hour charter today with nice results, 2 x Dorado (A bull and a Queen), 3 x Yellowfin Tuna and 2 Oceanic Bonito (Skip Jack Tuna), so 3 game fish species in one trip making it a game fish grand slam and some very happy customers.
I hope the water conditions continue to improve.
