Last Minute Inshore Fun – 5th April 2016
After a last minute booking we had a excellent day out at the point boating some yellowtail around the bellows on spinning gear.
We had a late start to the morning only leaving Houtbay at 7:15am, arriving at the point only to find the tail going crazy on the surface feeding on garfish. We drove up to the shoal throwing plugs, wax wings and max raps which the fish couldn’t leave alone.
A very good way to spend my birthday.

17 October Yellowtail and Bronze Whaler Shark
Cyril and his team from Fishing Adventurer, the tv series joined us for day one, some inshore action with the yellowtail and bronze whaler sharks. There was all-round activity the whole morning with the yellowtail not readily taking the lures, making for some tough fishing. However we did manage to find several still willing to take a spinner and then put some of the smaller tail and katonkel down for live bait for bronzies. We put down 4 live baits and had 4 sharks take the baits within minutes biggest about 2.7m long. So some great action, we were catching the shark on big barbless circle hooks making for an easy release without leaving the hook in the shark.
