Garden Route Report
« on: January 22, 2019, 06:54:37 AM »
Spent the December holidays fishing the beautiful Southern Cape coastline from the Breede to Knysna. As sea fishing conditions weren't ideal I spent most of my time targeting grunters, kob and leeries in the rivers & estuaries. Managed to land +- 15 grunters, 3 leeries, 2 kob and 2 small elf in the week spent fishing, with the majority of them coming on surface lures and a few on bait. Any walk the dog style lure seemed to work well as long as the wind wasn't to hectic and the sun was low.


Here's a little video report of all the fish we managed to catch & release on camera. Hope you enjoy!

Thanks guys! Nothing better than seeing them swim off again.
Hopefully the fishing Gods bless me with a monster soon!
