A mixed bag of fish­ing

Zululand Observer - Monday - - SPORT - Richard Springo­rum

FISH­ING over the past few weeks has been like a chess game, with an­glers hav­ing had to be very strate­gic to find the fish and test what’s work­ing to get a bite.

Deep sea an­glers have had a mix bag of edi­ble and ined­i­bles on most days once they found the shoals.

Bronzies, crack­ers and kob have made the catch list this week.

The off-shore fra­ter­nity on the other hand have ex­pe­ri­enced great fish­ing at ma­jor spots all along the north coast.

Snoek have been greedy, giv­ing an­glers a de­cent fight.

Trolling fil­let baits just be­hind the back­line has been the most pro­duc­tive at all spots.

Keep a spin­ning rod on hand, as it is a lot more fun catch­ing these beau­ties on a spoon rather than a fil­let.

De­cent tuna have also come out on all the usual meth­ods, with other va­ri­eties also not dis­ap­point­ing.
