Kids and yellowtail

Struisbaai, Overberg - Saltwater Fishing Report
6 Mile Bank

With plenty of young yellowtail at Blougansie it was an ideal time to give the young ones a chance to hone their angling skills and experience the power of these tenacious fighters.

Awesome Charters were off to the warm deep waters at the southern tip of Africa and the yellowtail did not disappoint!

The kids had a ball with a few fish being caught trolling lures while some of the young ones got coached in using the superb Jigstar jigging outfits on board. Pretty soon each of them had a fish or two on the boat with proud parents looking on, having more fun watching the kiddos enjoying their fishing than trying their own luck on the yellowtail.

The photo session back at the harbour was a blast with the kids all proudly showing of their catches.

The good news is that bigger yellowtail shoals have started to move in as well and we are expecting a bumper fishing week after Xmas. Call Stef on 071 238 1000 or Nelmarie on 0828702783 to book your spot now.
