Offshore Fishing Report – Durban – 27 May 2017


Offshore Fishing Report – Durban – 27 May 2017

Saturday was cool weather and started out as a really stunning day and was stunning for most of the day with only a stiff wind that picked up later in the afternoon. Water temperatures have come down a little and are sitting a little over 23deg.C. There was a strong N-S current and although the water was not dirty it was not clear either. There was loads of Skipjack Tuna (Oceanic Bonito) around and they provided some great lighter tackle fishing fun for everyone on board; with a total of 9 landed and a few more lost. Bottom fishing was done at the end of the trip for a short period with some general bottom fish caught with nothing to write home about it was not so easy to get the lines down in the current out deeper.

Offshore Fishing Report – Durban – 19/20 May 2017


Offshore Fishing Report – Durban – 19/20 May 2017

Offshore waters are still nice and warm at 23.8deg.C and the weather has been superb, we had some short morning charters on both days and after some early Tuna and Bonnies light tackle bottom fishing got some nice results with some interesting species along with some slinger.

Offshore Fishing Report – Durban – 17 May 2017


Offshore Fishing Report – Durban – 17 May 2017

After all these heavy rains it was great to have sunshine again, we were expecting the water to be filthy but deeper out it was clean and the temperature was a surprising 23.8 deg.C.

Conditions were also great with flat seas and a gentle current.

It was only a short morning charter and we had 2 very unusual catches with 2 Bludger King Fish caught out deep trolling Rapalas, never seen this before. Perhaps they were lost.

In addition to the 2 King Fish, 4 Yellowfin Tuna also succumbed to the Rapalas making a good fish count for the day.

Fishing Report – Durban – 5 May 2017


Stunning conditions, but the water was green and water temps averaging 23.6deg.C, before heading out to the deep there was a stop for live bait and then these were deployed inshore and some nice Couta (King Mackerel) were landed. After that the deep was quiet with the exception of a sailfish that made itself known but showed very little interest after that.
