Although there was a lot of excitement when the Bot River lagoon breached this was at the Kleinmond side which is indirectly linked to the main lagoon and where the sand dunes are very low. However, the main body of water is on the other side towards Fisherhaven and here the sand dunes are much higher and it will need much more rain to before the main lagoon breaks through to the sea. The same applies to the Hermanus lagoon where more rain is needed before this lagoon breaches.

Otherwise, there is not much to report. The rock and surf boys did well with steenbras at Struisbaai and a 16kg kob was caught at Breede River which is unusual for this time of year as there is a lot of fresh water coming through and the main start to the kob season is October.
