Dorado Account Opened.
Offshore Fishing Report – 16 October 2019
Better late than never, we finally opened our Dorado (Mahi) account for the season today, water is still cold and under 20deg.C. We had some Bonnie action on our way out and then we had 2 missed strikes, 1 on a Rapala and another on a Bullet and then finally we had a small female Dorado stick to the hook, I can see they not hitting hard as yet and the strikes are soft and gentle, but they are around and I will have a taste of some Dorado for dinner tonight, it’s been a while.

A Sailfish to commence the Season.
Offshore Fishing Report – 2 October 2019
The 2nd day into the Game Fishing season and we were still buzzing from the big Tuna the day before and things were quiet, we had picked up some Shad on the bullets (Yes out of season and they were put back) and also a few smaller Bonnies. There was a light rain and inshore was quiet so I sped up and headed out deeper, it was a short morning trip so time was against us. Once deep I tapped the throttles back a little and started working some previously productive areas and BANG the port corner went and I thought it was a small Striped Marlin as it took off, 30 minutes later we had a good sized Sailfish at the boat which we released and then made our way back into port. A really good start to the season and I hope it is a sign of good things to come. I have been expecting the Dorado to show up anytime along with some Black Marlin.
A Very Good Tuna off Durban for Fat Girl.
Offshore Fishing Report – 1 October 2019
Officially the start of Game Fishing Season and off we went with a strong SW wind and a screaming S-N current with water still cold averaging 20.5 deg.C. Within the 1st 30 minutes we had 3 reels screaming with some very large Bonnies and we landed 2 of them, a few more Bonnies after that and before we could blink we were out deep off Salt Rock with that strong current and made the turn to head back, on the way back we found some smaller Yellowfin Tuna and then for the grand finale we landed a stunning 30Kg Yellowfin Tuna which gave a good account for itself.
