Breede River.

As expected it has been much quieter since the cold weather set in but for those who were prepared to persevere the odd grunter, steenbras and kob were still caught on bait and recently a flyfisher took 2 medium sized leervis.

De Mond.

Not much action in the estuary but bait anglers took some nice grunter and kob off the beach

Hermanus lagoon.

Also, very quiet with few anglers around. The water level is higher than in previous years so there is a possibility that the mouth will be breached fairly early this winter.

Bot River Lagoon.

Very quiet with not many anglers around.


A garrick/leervis being released.
