Mixed Fishing Bag. Offshore Fishing Report – Oct/Nov 2019 The water has finally started warming up and we have found water up to 23.5 deg.C, along with some patches of blue water. Game fish are still hard work to find but we have found more Dorado and some really big size Bonito. Bottom fishing has been consistent other than those days with a screaming current and provided great delight for some kids on our trips. I think after the series of upcoming westerly conditions and rain we will find the game fish arriving in better numbers and I expect the first Black Marlin to show its bill soon. With some really hot days the past few weeks we could be in for a very hot summer which will make for a good game fish season.

Big Wahoo, Small Marlin, Tuna and a ton of Dorado off Durban Fishing Report – Durban – 30th December Fishing has been great this season with good fish being caught on all trips, the Dorado have been thick with many being caught, there are also some nice Yellowfin Tuna about and finally the Wahoo have arrived, when the Wahoo arrive the Black Marlin are also around. Yesterday Fat Girl crew managed to land an awesome 1st Wahoo for the season weighing in at 17.5kg, and whilst they get much bigger in other parts of the world for Durban this is a good catch as they usually average 8-12Kg. With today not wanting to be outdone by yesterday the Fat Girl crew managed to hook up and release a small Black Marlin just past the south pier whilst clearing lines to enter port. This Marlin was a first for angler Giulio and so a huge congratulations to him. For Skipper Erik’s son Ruben who has been working as a deckhand for us during his school holidays it is his first interaction with a Marlin and he saw it chasing the kona whilst clearing lines and teased it to perfection to get the hook up and so a huge congratulations to him, how awesome for him and his dad to share a memory like this together. This Black Marlin is also the 4th Black that has been caught on Fat Girl in 2020 in the shallows between no.1 reef and the harbour entrance as we had 3 before the lock down in the shallows and just shows that one does not need to travel far in Durban to catch Marlin. I take this opportunity to wish all for 2021 and stay safe.
