Whats been happening in and around Durban
« on: July 04, 2010, 03:40:50 PM »
I now see that Bennie has joined the new family and know he catches somes nice fishys!
So lets get a thread going of all your recent catches and the whats hot and whats not...
 
We have to start somewhere so lets get it going!
 
I know there were some snoek caught this morning at Westbrook and a mate got a nice tunny off the unhlanga barge!
 
A wise man once told me life is to short for ugly girls and cheap fishing tackle!

I spent the last week catching egg rolls in Shelly with some good mates!
I know there are Wahoo around as well as good numbers of Tunny and Snoek with a few sails in between. I've also heard some good catches of bek are coming out already, but unconfirmed!

Up Mtunzini we got a few couta up till last week, but gone dead now. The odd Dorrie and Kingy still around.
Moving our attention to the bottom dwelling species, they are full up as usual, with some nice size Rockod and also some big Cob.

Well,, according to the scale on the 'shag it was around 4kg, but I am sure it must have been closer to 24kg - you be the judge :)
