It has been blowing a North West gale with some rain and more promised which should make the trout fishers happy.

Hermanus & Bot River Lagoons

Both these lagoons closed about 3 months ago after breaching for the first time in about 5 years. They are currently too warm for fishing and let’s hope we have another wet winter so they breach again.

De Mond

This estuary was muddy over the festive season following some unseasonal rain, but it is clear again and has produced a few grunter

Breede River

Some really big grunter have been caught, some up to 7,8 kg. It has also been a good kob season with most ranging 10 – 12 kg.

Rock & Surf fishing

Steenbras have been caught off the beach at Struisbaai and Die Plaat near Hermanus.

Offshore.

It has not been a good season off Cape Point with very few yellowtail and tuna taken by the boats.
