Jozini Tiger Fishing Trip – Mid November 2013
We left Durban in the early hours of the morning in heavy
rain to make our way up to Jozini, and when we got there it was still raining,
but at least not heavy like the rain we picked up on the road, we started
setting up the campsite in the rain and by the time we had completed the rain
had gone and the sun was out, from there on we had mostly blue skies and hot
weather over 36deg.C with exception for 1 day which was a little cooler and
Mornings sessions all had light winds and afternoon
sessions all had moderate winds, the water was warm and the dam levels at
around 80%. The top of the river section was already getting dirty from the
rains coming down the river and each day it moved closer to the bay area.
The fishing was good, and even in our first session we
had our 1st fish on board in no time and soon everyone was
comfortable with the fishing style and tackle.
We had many strikes that were missed in true Tiger
Fishing fashion, but we also landed a fair amount of Tiger Fish over the 4 days
with the largest fish landed being 3.0Kg.
It was very frustrating on this trip that we lost so many
big tigers in the 4-5Kg range; the fish were very aggressive and fought very
hard with many biting us off.
The whole area is green now and the wildlife is just so
spectacular, I just love fishing Jozini as nowhere else so close to home offers
one the opportunity of good fishing, game and bird viewing and off a boat its
always best as one can get much closer to the wildlife.
