Summer Fishing Season on its way

Fishing Report – Durban – 8th November 2020

Finally summer seems to be on its way with the water warming up, but still no Dorado which we are anticipating on any trip now, they seem to be late this year. Some nice Yellowfin Tuna have been around and a prolonged period of Tropical Yellowtails which usually make a short appearance just before the Dorado arrive but have been hanging around longer than usual and a first for us was to get a Tropical Yellowtail in the harbour. As always the Bonito have been around in abundance making great sport for all on board and exceptional fun for the little ones. Bottom fishing has been normal with a good few John Dory’s coming out.

Bio: I have been fishing since I was 5 years old in Durban and have fished many places around the world and in South Africa, but Durban is my home waters. I fished competitive for many years and I have been running my own charters since 2008 with 2 companies and 2 boats, fish a variety of styles and target a variety of fish species in both Salt and Fresh water, have many published articles in several magazines on fishing. Love nature and outdoors, Am very conservation minded and have a passion for birds. I am crazy about big Tuna, Marlin Fishing and Game Fishing, and also love light tackle spinning, am a total lure junkie. Represented my province in fly fishing for many years and am also pro staff for Rapala/Shimano. I want to write a book on fishing one day. 3 items left on my fishing bucket list, guess then a new bucket list will be in order. As a writer I have my own quote: \"I love taking people fishing because it releases their inner child, and in doing so keeps my inner child alive.\"
