North coast re­mains a fish­ing hot spot

Zululand Observer - Monday - - ZO SPORT - Richard Springo­rum

LO­CAL an­glers have been thick on the salt tablets to re­lieve mus­cle spasms and cramps as a re­sult of all the ac­tion over the past week.

Deep sea an­glers have been spoilt with couta, tuna and snoek of great sizes.

This week saw the big­gest couta come out af­ter a dry spell.

This 26kg mon­ster was caught off Jex Es­tate, which has proved to be the hot spot of late.

For those who ven­tured fur­ther north to Sod­wana, fuel was wasted as the strong cur­rents have been taxing on the fish.

The rock and surf scene has pro­duced more ed­i­ble fish than ined­i­bles over the past week, with some nice pom­pano and de­cent sized shad com­ing out.

A num­ber of king­fish and dou­ble-decker speck­led snap­pers have also been on the bite.

Pom­pano and stump­nose have been landed with sea lice, with the oc­ca­sional brown ray and sand shark com­ing out on red eye sar­dine or chokka bait on the sand­bank.

Richards Bay an­glers Jade and Kevin Boy­der had a pro­duc­tive shing trip just off Richards Bay on Wed­nes­day
