The last spring high tide was abnormally high with reports of the sea actually pushing into the little town of Port Alfred. The reason for the extra volume of water still however remains a mystery. Despite this the fishing has been constant.

The sea temperature is currently sitting around 18 degrees.

Flat rocks – Reports of some good blacktail coming to net. Majority of the fish were taken on the trusty “OO” fly and also the biscuit shrimp.

 Swartkops River – The last several weeks have seen some really good-sized grunter taken in the mouth area. Also, plenty of good-sized garrick and skipjack coming to the net. However, most were taken on bucktail.  See attached pictures.

Gamtoos River – Reports of some juvenile cob in the river system but some 8 – 10 kg kob in the surf have been taken. These fish were taken using live mullet.

Sundays River – No reports.
