LAKE JOZINI TIGER FISHING REPORT - 20-22 June 2015


LAKE JOZINI TIGER FISHING REPORT - 20-22 June 2015
Did a 3 day fishing and camping trip up at Jozini with a guest from New Zealand to hunt some Tiger Fish. Water was cold and crystal clear, the water levels were extremely low and the slipway was about 15-20m out the water making for difficult launching. Early mornings were icy cold, but along with winter conditions the game viewing and bird life was incredible, Buffalo, Elephants, Rhino, Hippo, Crocodiles, Kudu, Wildebeest, Ostrich, Jackals, Warthogs, Giraffe, Zebra and a host of other wildlife and birds. For me the highlight was an Osprey Eagle that took a Tiger fish directly inform of us and a Fish Eagle that we saw perch up close. The fishing was not as good as I had hoped and we only landed 17 Tiger Fish in Total and all were smaller sizes but not rats and probably dropped about another 100 fish at least. We had one monster hooked up but he came off. At the campsite on the last day during brunch the Warthogs came right up to us within an arms length.
