Bucket List achieved in one trip.


Bucket List achieved in one trip.

Offshore Fishing Report – Durban – 22 May 2019

What stunning conditions, flat seas, light winds and sunny skies which made for an awesome day. The water is still dirty and there is debris around, temperature is under 21 deg.C. I found no signs of Tuna or Bonito and so we stopped and went for bottoms and really got some nice quality fish with some good sized Slinger, Copper Bream, Englishman and Soldier Bream. Once we had full quota of bottom fish for all on board we trolled back looking for a Tuna and I went inshore over certain points that have yielded us good Tuna in the past, sadly there was no sign, not even bait fish and we managed 1 frigate Tuna. Immediately after we went over the last point the shotgun snapped and the reel was screaming and in no time we were into the backing and could not stop this fish, to make a long story short after slowing the boat down more than normal and a hard 20 minute fight we managed to land a small yogurt bucket much to our surprise. It’s not every day that one can land their entire bucket list in 1 trip.
