Bot River lagoon

Did not Breach in the last 12 months due to poor winter rains. Have not fished there recently but I hear some fish have come out.

Hermanus lagoon

Also did not breach and was full of fresh water up to a Christmas. Since then evaporation has increased the salinity. This probably brought the Garrick on the feed and I have had two visits when I took 12 and 8 respectively throughout the day. There are also some shad around and they take better in the evening.

De Mond.

No news from this estuary.

Breede & Duivenhoks

These two estuaries have fished well with the normal assortment of grunter and kob plus garrick and some shad.

Offshore

With the gale force South Easters which have brought in colder water the yellowfin tuna have moved further out to sea at Cape Point.
