North coast still pro­duces good catches

Zululand Observer - Monday - - ZO SPORT - Richard Springo­rum

NU­MER­OUS species of var­i­ous sizes are thick on the bite all along the north coast.

Deep sea an­glers have been spoilt with good sail­fish, do­rado, tuna, couta and king­fish catches.

An­glers for­tu­nate enough to gain ac­cess to some pri­vate ar­eas on the lower north coast have man­aged to bat­tle some bomber snoek.

When tar­get­ing these beau­ti­ful species, troll fil­let traces and small lipped lures behind the back­line.

But make sure to have a flick stick close at hand rigged with a small spoon to fire into a shoal swim­ming past.

Rock and surf an­glers have had a roller­coaster week. Pom­pano have been mak­ing the rounds in the lower north coast re­gion.

Cracker shrimp and prawn baits have proved irresistible for this specie.

Lo­cal an­gler Lyn­ton Prem­lall landed this beauty on a re­cent shing trip
