Durban, KwaZulu-Natal - Saltwater Fishing Report

Fishing in the Rain.

Offshore Fishing Report – Durban 26-01-2019

We met our clients this morning in heavy rain and gave them the option to go the next day but they wanted to fish, other than the rain the conditions were very nice and so the short 5hr trip got going at 06h00. We trolled out to the reefs to do some bottoms and hooked a Dorado on the way. Bottoms produced some nice reds. On the way back we hooked into a large Wahoo which really gave a great Arial display before biting through the leader. I am pleased that we are starting to see Wahoo as they have been absent from our waters so far.

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.\"
