Put me onto these in Oct 2017 - all sight casting using 10ft rods - trolled around Dassen Island for first hour from about 6am and managed a snoek and 1 other yellowtail and then the birds started working so we chased after them and "hunted tail".  We managed 14 fish that day - 12 of which were all caught spinning...

Here is the link to Vic's latest profile with Dassen updates.

September there should still be some tail around the island (conditions permitting)

You may have to work for them tho.
