FISHING REPORT - Durban - 25th July 2014.

FISHING REPORT - Durban - 25th July 2014.
Sea was not the best to day, but was also not the worst. We went out deep to the 300m depth looking for some Yellowfin Tuna with no luck. The only 2 fish I saw on the finder at about 250m hit our Rapala's, with one coming off almost immediately and we landed an Oceanic Bonito (Skipjack). we then came back inside and did some reef fishing which was frustrating as the finder was giving good showings but the fish were not that interested except for the Trigger fish of which we caught and released well over 20, they give a good fight and are fun to catch. We also landed a lot of Slinger of which about 12-15 were size, and some Soldier Bream. Whales were scarce to day but we did see 3 of them, we also saw a pod of Dolphins inshore on our way out and on our way back. When out at about 200m I saw a very large flying fish, at about 130m I saw a ray doing somersaults and at about 100m I saw what looked like very small Yellowfin Tuna jumping. Not the best of days but at least we got some fish.

  2. Forecast shows wind for the afternoons of Monday and Tuesday with the rest of the week being OK. The wind at the beginning of the week is SW which is often good for fishing until the current swings to SN. After the NE has blown for 2 days fishing will get tough. Friday looks like the most promising day to get good fish.
