It has been extremely hot with temperatures up to 40°C. Sea temperatures have been in the high twenties which may be the reason why the fishing has been so poor. We have had the odd shad at Vidal and Mapelane but nothing much else. We had four anglers up from Cape Town spinning for kingfish and they blanked while the kayak boys who target species like dorado are also battling. On top of that it is very dry so there is little chance on the lake breaching at last after 11 or 12 years.
