Hermanus & Bot River lagoons. Both these lagoons of course are closed and will be for some time because of the Western Cape drought. However, the fishing has been quite reasonable with catches comprising mainly leervis, with some kob and big elf.
De Mond: I have tried this estuary three times in the last month and come up blank every time.
Breede: Fishing has been good over the last month with the usual grunter, kob, leervis and white steenbras. It is probable that the Steenbras numbers are up in the estuary as they have moved in to the mouth to avoid the very cold sea temperature which has been down to 10° to 11°C.
Duivenhoks: Some good catches of kob recorded.
Sea fishing: Generally poor in the Hermanus area where earlier on we had some red tide.
