FISHING REPORT - DURBAN - 13-14/12/2014


FISHING REPORT - DURBAN - 13-14/12/2014
On Friday night I got the best catch of my lifetime when I proposed to Theresa and she said yes. On Saturday we were out from 04h00 to 18h00 so it was a long day, the sea started out ugly in the morning but ended up being a stunning day. We had a Sailfish jumping around in our spread in the late afternoon, we got a nice Dorado, 2 Yellowfin Tuna, 2 Oceanic Bonito's and a Kawa Kawa. The water was cold and green so a good day's fishing for lousy conditions. Sunday saw us going out at 04h00 in what turned into a horrible East wind, although the conditions were ok until about 08h30 it then turned nasty, and I made a judgement call to shorten our trip and return to shore and so our 12hrs trip became 7hrs. We saw Sunfish on both Saturday and Sunday, the Whales have left our shores until next winter. On Sunday we got a Dorado, a Yellowfin Tuna and then we hooked into a massive Bonnie that got taken by a big Zambezi (Bull) shark in view of all of us on board to our horror. Must say it was impressive to see that beast take out the Bonnie in one swift bite.
