Fishing in the Rain.
Offshore Fishing Report – Durban 26-01-2019
We met our clients this morning in heavy rain and gave them the option to go the next day but they wanted to fish, other than the rain the conditions were very nice and so the short 5hr trip got going at 06h00. We trolled out to the reefs to do some bottoms and hooked a Dorado on the way. Bottoms produced some nice reds. On the way back we hooked into a large Wahoo which really gave a great Arial display before biting through the leader. I am pleased that we are starting to see Wahoo as they have been absent from our waters so far.

Game fishing season in full swing.
Offshore Fishing Report – Durban 01-02-2019
Sunrise is getting a little later each morning and most days are hot and humid which is typical for February. We have had rainfall most nights and the result of this can be seen by the dirty water flowing out the port creating a strong colour line. Inshore waters have had cold green water and one need’s to get out to the deeper water to find warm clean water and so some travelling is required to get some fish leaving one with a shorter time to produce. On a short morning trip as we got to the clean water we had a Dorado (Mahi) hit a Rapala Xtreme and after a jump the fish came off. We then landed a decent size Yellowfin Tuna, had an on/off with a Wahoo and then landed a smaller Dorado which gave a fight of a fish twice its size. I think we will start seeing Wahoo catches reported soon and usually when the Wahoo are around we find good numbers of Black Marlin too. Time to stretch those muscles, and prepare for a Marlin fight.

Afternoon Quickie.
Offshore Fishing Report – Durban 03-02-2019
Sunday was one of those days that the forecast showed bad weather but in reality conditions were quite good. Then as we had packed up in the afternoon we had some people want to go fishing on short notice and so we obliged them and reset the boat and took them out for a late afternoon fishing session, there was not even enough time for a half day trip so it was short and sweet and we managed 1 Dorado (Mahi) which delighted this family.
Often unplanned trips on short notice work out well which reminds me of a trip last year under similar circumstances and we hooked into a Marlin within an hour from launch and back on the dock 3hrs from when we launched. So if conditions are good and you feel like going, just get on with it and go, you just might be surprised.

Great Day offshore on McFire.
Offshore Fishing Report – Durban 06-02-2019
What an awesome day today, we had a team building trip for the Blue Water Charters team along with a few friends to give McFire her maiden fishing voyage off Durban. For me it was just such a pleasure not to sit at the wheel and have a day off from skipper duty whilst Adam spent most of the day at the helm and he really is a competent skipper (thanks Adam). The boat is really spacious and even with 6 of us up on the bridge we were not cramped and with 14 metres of boat one could disappear to other parts of the boat for some solitude. Conditions today were fantastic with flat seas, warm blue water and no wind. We saw 2 Sharks during the trip, a Marlin swim by and 2 Loggerhead Turtles swimming together. Early morning we had a Dorado double up and it was Kurt and I fighting these fish, usually we are helping others catch fish so it was just so fabulous to be able to do this and be in a different role for a change. Next up was a smaller Yellowfin Tuna and this was on Erik’s turn and after a while we had a really big hit from a good size Yellowfin Tuna and Deon was on the rod to bring this beauty on board and claim the best catch for the day (Well done Deon). Things got a bit quiet for a while and we had a braai with some nice boerewors rolls (Thanks Imran). With full bellies and relaxing suddenly a reel went of and Heyne had the rod in hand putting a stunning Bull Dorado on the deck after some aerial antics (Well done Heyne). We then had another Dorado on and it was also a Bull and this one really jumped around spending more time in the air than in the water, sadly he came loose and we lost him. So the day ended with 3 Dorado, 2 Yellowfin on the tally and a bunch of great guys to enjoy the day with. Thanks guys for such a great day, was an absolute pleasure, it was really relaxing and refreshing. I think we should do this more often.

Dorado Fishing on McFire.
Offshore Fishing Report – Durban 09-02-2019
With a short 5hr morning trip, McFire headed out at 05h00 this morning into some nice conditions, fortunately the sea had settled nicely after yesterdays pumping NE wind and a light SW made for an ideal day offshore. There was not time to be wasted as a mix of Game and Bottom fishing was requested for today and so lines were set straight from port and before all the lines were out the first Dorado was on and after a good fight it was on deck sealing the mood for a good trip. There was also other Dorado that got caught and a Bonnie, a wide variety of bottom fish where caught, all undersize ones were put back. A very successful morning with a happy crew. Back on the dock just after 10h00.
