OFFSHORE FISHING REPORT - Durban - 12/03/2016

OFFSHORE FISHING REPORT - Durban - 12/03/2016
Fishing was tough this weekend with a strong reverse current and green water, we struggled to find clean warm water but eventually we managed to find some purple water at 27deg.C and picked up a really great Bull Dorado. We had a large Black Marlin on the outside rigger line he did a jump and threw the hook then he moved and hit the short corner and did a superb aerial display and threw the hook. We had a few on/offs and fish hitting the birds but it seems they biting short. Bottom fishing was not easy in the strong current but with big sinkers in shallow waters we managed some really nice slinger.
We came across a monster sized Manta Ray and is wing span was wider than Fat Girls 12ft beam. Amazing to see such a magnificent creature.
