Dorado (Mahi) Fishing in Progress – 2019 is in Action.
Offshore Fishing Report – Durban – Start 2019
2019 started with a bang, the Dorado (Mahi) are still here in full force, it’s been a great season so far. Now is the time we are expecting the Marlin to arrive and hope to add more to our catch reports.
Have a Wonderful 2019.
Bent Rods, Tight Lines, Screaming Reels and Bloody Decks to you all.

Dorado, Tuna, Monster Marlin, a Dropped Gaff and a Perch.
Offshore Fishing Report – Durban – 8 January 2019
A difficult report to write, it usually takes me about a week to get over a dropped Marlin.
The currents have been a mess with a complete circular system, out in the deep past 500m we have had a raging 4 not current from N-S, and inshore it has been screaming from S-N, temperatures have varied from 22 deg.C up to 24.5 deg.C and we have found clear green water, dirty green water, clear blue water and that purple water that makes dreams come true. So very tricky conditions.
Of all the things to hook up on a Kona, Nawty Girl hooked up a Black Perch.
On Fat Girl we were out looking for a Marlin, day 1 was awesome flat seas but no fish and we skunked, day 2 started choppy and then calmed down. 2 hrs into our trip we hooked up into a beast of a Black Marlin well over 600lbs, we saw it probably a female and the girth was incredibly wide, a really big fish. 50 minutes into the fight and 700m out she came leaping towards us and even on the plane we could not keep her tight and after 20 minutes like this she threw the hook. After that we hook up 2 Yellowfin Tuna which ended up as nice kebabs that evening and 2 Dorado, a Bull and a Queen. Kurt dropped the gaff on the Queen so we had to flick her over and he knew a knuckle rap was waiting for him at the docks. It was lines up after the Queen and when clearing lines a statistic with odds unfathomable happened, one of the clips from the leaders hooked the dropped gaff and we got it back.

Families with Kids having a blast Dorado Fishing.
Offshore Fishing Report – Durban – 13 January 2019
As a skipper there is nothing that satisfies me more than when we take kids out fishing with Mom and Dad and we get them hooked up into a nice Dorado for the first time in their lives. Many times it is their first experience at sea, and for me to see their shear excitement, and amazement when they hold on to that rod, sometimes with Mom and Dad’s help and the exhilaration when that brightly coloured beautiful Dorado comes on board totally makes my day. On both Fat Girl and Nawty Girl these Kids had a blast.

Dorado (Mahi) Fishing still great and some Tuna coming in.
Offshore Fishing Report – Durban
So far we have had a superb Dorado season, it started early with a big fish; pretty much we getting Dorado every trip. Yellowfin Tuna were scarce for a while but they are now starting to show up. Marlin have also been around. The current seems to have settled and we have some nice warm water so we expect Wahoo to show up anytime, they are late. The next 3-4 months are looking to provide us with some great fishing with Fat Girl, Nawty Girl and McFire ready for action.
