5hrs, 4 Countries, 3 Fish.

Fishing Report – Durban – 27.03.2018

We had an interesting group of guys today from 4 countries to attend a wedding. Belgium, Australia, UK. We launched at 06h00 for a short 5hr charter, by 07h30 we already had 2 x Yellowfin Tuna of around 5kg and had dropped one. Water was green but warm. I tried for more Tuna but nothing so we went out to the ledge and managed to find a Bull Dorado which gave a very hard fight and had stunning colours, by this time the NE wind had picked up to 20 knots and we had to turn and head back to shore to be on the dock by 11h00, the water got greener and dirtier the whole time, we had a big strike on the shot gun on the 50m but nothing stuck. We heard a loud bang and then saw a huge log pop out behind the boat, it must have been submerged as I did not see it; fortunately we were trolling at about 7knots so no damage.

After the trip we made the newly married guy kiss the Dorado so he can start getting used to those nights when he will have to share the kennel with the dog. LOL.
