Bot River & Hermanus lagoons:

These two lagoons have not breached for two years, but with reasonable winter rains this year let’s hope they breach by spring. Hermanus lagoon is still plagued by smelly weed, but there have been some large elf, leervis and kob caught on lures and live bait

De Mond: There are plenty of smaller fish in this estuary which is promising. Otherwise some good catches of steenbras, grunter and small kob have been made. Off the nearby beach a 7,8kg elf was taken pus some big steenbras and kob

Breede: With heavy autumn rains in the Swellendam area the river came down heavily and which put a damper on the fishing but since then anglers have been catching grunter, kob, leervis and some bigger elf but closer to the mouth.

Struisbaai: Some good yellowtail have been taken by the boats.

Stilbaai area. Good fishing with conventional tackle off the beach at Blombas with some good musselcracker and galjoen taken.

Cape Point & offshore. Very few yellowfin tuna around but catches of yellowtail continue and up the west coast they are starting to take the first of the winter snoek.
