Good Reef Fishing, Game Fishing Slow
Offshore Fishing Report – Durban – 20 May 2019
On our last 2 trips the water temps have dropped below 21 deg.C, Sunday had light winds and small swells yet it was not pleasant with a reverse current directly opposite the swell direction making for a very close swell of around 4 seconds, Monday was nice and comfortable with flat seas even though the NE was blowing a bit. We struggled to find any Tuna and even Bonito have been scarce and we only got a few stragglers and strangely enough we got an Oceanic in the shallows on our way back on Sunday and these are normally caught much deeper out. Bottom Fishing was good and on both days we opted to go for bottoms, on both days we got a lot of Slinger and Soldier Bream and also some other quality fish of decent sizes like Englishman, Copper Bream and Rubber Lips.
