  Things are really looking up.  The Snoek are everywhere, the Yellowtail are congregating at Cape Point and even Geelbek (Cape Salmon) on a few of the reefs.   The winds we are experiencing at present are right on time and the whales have arrived in the bay.   These SW winds which have been with us […]

As I sit writing this report we have the first real, albeit late, of our winter storms raging.  Lashing the Peninsula with torrents of driving rain and gale force North Westerly winds.   I mention this because these storms are what will determine the success of the fishing this coming summer. The fishing has been regularly […]

Well winter suddenly arrived in the Cape.   One day we were catching loads of Yellowfin and Longfin Tuna and the very next day everything went quiet.   It was incredible to see how suddenly the very short Tuna season came to an end.   However short it was, the fishing was terrific.  This year we saw more […]

First off I must apologise for the lengthy delays between reports and with the large number of requests I have been getting for more frequent information, I’m going to give it my best shot to update on a weekly basis.   This may not be as be easy as it sounds after a few days on […]

  And we thought the weather at the beginning of the year was weird, well here in the middle of winter we have some of the most awesome weather imaginable.   It’s cold, wet and rainy in the UK and Europe (their summer) and we have stunning hot days, no wind and warm temperatures – guess […]

I had no sooner finished my last report when the Yellowtail switched on at Rocky Bank. We had about a week of excellent fishing with some of the better commercial crews landing in excess of 2 ton a day. Most of these fish were caught on the drift using a combination of Pilchard and Squid. […]

Thanks for prompting this report guys. It’s not easy giving a positive report when the fishing’s going through the longest quiet period I can remember. I get phone calls every day from my commercial friends, all just waiting and hoping for some good news. All I can put the absence of fish down to is […]
