OFFSHORE FISHING REPORT - Durban - 2nd-4th January 2016

OFFSHORE FISHING REPORT - Durban - 2nd-4th January 2016
We started 2016 with an offshore fly fishing trip, it was a stunning day with virtually no wind and the water was warm and crystal clear, all we managed to get were small Dorado around the ships. The next day the NE was blowing a little and the day went well with nice clean warm water and we landed some nice Dorado. By the 4th the NE had started blowing strong and to my dismay the water had gone green and dead, there was no life there was not even bottom fish showing on the sounder, we saw no birds. We did see 1 hammer head shark lazining around and on our way back from the deep we came accross a Black Marlin sun tanning who had no interest in our offerings. Very frustrating. Am hoping the current westerly conditions and rains bring some life back to our shores.
