Sundays River

Grunters are still being caught, however most of these catches are made by bait fishermen. I have not heard of any other catches being made in the last couple of weeks.

Swartkops River

Good catches of grunters are still being made on lures and bait.

Decent size kob are still being caught close to the mouth by lure fisherman.

Decent size garrick have been caught earlier in December.

Sporadic catches of skipjack are being made higher upriver.

Gamtoos River

Decent size kob are being caught close to the mouth.

With the river warming up in the upper reaches, I believe good catches of skipjack will be made in the next couple of weeks. A couple of grunter catches have been reported, however most of these were on bait.

Krom River

Unfortunately, I don't know of any catches being made in the Krom Rriver for the last couple of weeks.
