Good Yellowfin in rough seas

Durban, KwaZulu-Natal - Saltwater Fishing Report
Off Shore

We left the harbour at 04h00 into a 25 knot North Easterly wind, although the swells were not that big, it was very choppy. The wind picked up to around 30 knots later on; and then back down to 25 knots. Water was clean but cold at 22.7deg.C. The morning started with a S-N current which swung around to a N-S at around 08h00.

For our efforts we were rewarded with 3 good Yellowfin Tuna at 10, 11 & 12Kg

Whilst out in the deep we saw some small Flying Fish and a large Sunfish.
