Bot River & Hermanus lagoons:

Both lagoons are full of fresh water and about 99% full, but the authorities prefer that they breach naturally so there has been little fishing done in these waters. We are waiting for one more good rain to trigger the breaching and if this happens we can look forward to some good sport.

De Mond: No news from this estuary but I predict that the fishing will improve shortly.

Breede: There was a very good flow through the system until a month ago. Nothing big coming out yet but there have been some modest catches of grunter and kob and even some elf. I believe we could be in for a good summer season

Cape Point: Yellowtail and yellowfin tuna are being taken, but no really large tuna being taken yet by the boats.
