Hi everyone.

I need some advice please.

As I'm still new back to Cape Town, can you guys tell me where would be good to spin or throw topwater plugs at this time of year, and be bank accessible?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Thank you

JW

Hi JW

It depends on target species and how heavy you fish. There are decent estuaries within an hour for leervis and elf - Hermanus, Bot River and further afield De Mond. Bot River and De Mond also offer opportunities to throw into the surf for the same species, as well as throw paddle tails for kob.

Strand is an excellent spinning area in the right conditions - usually a strong SE wind. Lots of small leeries and some good elf from about November onwards.

Baileys cottage in Muizenberg is a good elf spinning spot (spoons mainly) when the SE wind howls, but it is a bit early in the year still.

Zandvlei in Muizenberg used to produce very good leeries but it has been poached and polluted to pieces and these days you have to put in many hours to get a fish sadly.

Then there are yellowtails, but that is a whole other discussion and to be honest I dont share info about them on these public forums because the few spots one can catch them are already overrun.

Good luck!
