Report on 28 November OPBC Cape Bream Derby


Yet again Saturday turned out to be a peach of a day. Only 22 entries for the day. The bigger Bream were caught off Campsbay area in shallow water. A few boats ventured off to Robben Island for the elusive Yellow Tail. I had so many enquiries and request to throw in a prize for the heaviest Yellow Tail, and so I did. A good number of  Yellow Tail were landed. Pity that the majority were caught on boats that weren’t registered.
