Fishing report

2008-08-02 00:00

Transvaal Ski-Boat club, fishing on Dream Catcher skippered by Mike Ross won the Shelly Beach inter-club Ski-boat compo fished over the weekend. Second place went to Durban Rod and Reel and third place to Makaria Blue. Makaria Red, Taratibo and Shelly Beach made up 4th, 5th and 6th places respectively. This was a 10kg line class compo. And apparently there were 5 marlin strikes during the compo but being limited to fishing the 10kg line class not much chance was had and all 5 strikes were lost. Top fish was a cuda of 20.80kg caught by R Hartley of T.S.C. with M.Ross also of T.S.C. boating a 19.30kg yellow fin tuna. R. Hand from Rod and Reel landed a 18.80kg tuna. Second top Skipper was Brendan Purin, with Piet Geldenhuis third top Skipper. Thanks Mark from Tackle Box, Shelly Beach, for the info.

On the subject of sardines, there are still quite a lot of big shoals that seem to be holding out along the Transkei coast so anglers should not give up and think the run is over. A change in weather and sea conditions could quite easily get them moving and surprise anglers on the KZN coast. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
