Fishing off Durban this weekend

This weekend gave us cold green seas with a stiff NE wind on Saturday and a stiff SW wind on Sunday. When I saw the water was dirty I immediately knew that fishing was going to be tough.
On Saturday we had an incident that I have never experienced before when we ran over a giant Zambezi Shark (Bull Shark) of 500-600Kg. Was a big thud and the boat got knocked and then the shark breached behind the ...boat hooking into 2 of our rapalas giving the reels a good work out and we eventually lost the lures. The impact knocked one of our shaft seals completely out of alignment and this was easily sorted. Fortunately there was no Damage. For our efforts we were rewarded with a really good Yellowfin Tuna. Sunday was terrible fishing condition and we only had a 5 hr trip and we skunked.
