Little Guy get his Dorado

Offshore Fishing Report – Durban – 2nd December 2018

Dad wanted his boy to get a good fish, water is still freezing cold and under 21 degC. 1st up was a nice Bonito, followed by a small Dorado which he fought hard on light tackle. Of all the things we were not expecting in that cold green water was a Marlin hook up with a Black of about 110kg but the little guy even with help could not hold it and it threw the hooks to the crews dismay.

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.\"
