Durban, KwaZulu-Natal - Saltwater Fishing Report
Mike Laubscher

Another Game fish Grand Slam on Fat Girl to the delight our mix of guests from Belgium, France and Holland.

With an early launch for a 5hr charter and were able to get some good fishing in before the big West wind hit Durban.

Water is warm at 25deg.C and reasonable clear.

Very early we hooked up a cute baby Dorado which we released to swim another day. It amazes me that even as small as it is, it is already a perfectly formed Dorado, and it always intrigues me the size of lure these little guys tackle.

Next up was a really nice size Wahoo, which gave a good fight.

On the way back in we had a double hook up with a Yellowfin Tuna and a Oceanic Bonito
