August Jozini Tiger Fishing Trip with Adventure Fishing Safaris
Early mornings were very cold but the days were hot, on Monday the wind was howling first NE and the SW, Tuesday was a spectacular day, Wednesday morning was stunning but the afternoon was terrible with a massive SW wind blowing causing very large waves.
Fishing was very hard and over the 2 days I think we only got about 10 fish in total, a few fair size ones and one or two dinks. Then on Wednesday afternoon when the huge SW began and the waves were rolling we had 2 good fish in a row, a 5.5Kg and a 6Kg.
I had to work really hard to get fish and we travelled a lot around the dam and covered a good amount of water.
I am pleased with that 6Kg Tiger as this fish sets a new record for my charters.
The birds are all starting to breed and although most the vegetation is still brown one can clearly see the beginning signs of Spring. I noticed two Ostriches which I have never seen around the dam before and these birds are really large specimens.
Got back on Thursday to get ready for a Tuna trip on Friday morning.
