Winter Fishing Durban in June by Mike Laubscher (7/07/2018)
Bottom fishing in general has been really good with some really decent size fish coming out, Shark activity has been very high and we have been taxed of a number of good fish over the month.
The last weeks Fishing by Mike Laubscher (5/31/2018)
After taking some time off it is back to fishing, the last week has seen the water temperature off Durban go cold with today being 21.6deg.C. The last few trips have seen nice days but the mornings are getting cold and chilly so one has to layer up

A tough day by Mike Laubscher (5/12/2018)
We went all the way past Umdloti and only managed 2 bonnies and then we started doing some bottom fishing up North and made our way back to Durban reef by reef. The sinkers were ice cold
Short Mini Deep Trip by Mike Laubscher (5/06/2018)
Strange current direction again today but the water was nice and blue compared to green yesterday. It is chilly in the mornings but today warmed up quickly. Water temperature is dropping as we head into winter now. We trolled just over an hour on our way to the reef to see if we could get a nice Tuna

We had a short light tackle backline trip this morning but the dredger was busy in that area so I decided to go on the South side a little deeper.
Some good bottom fishing by Mike Laubscher (4/29/2018)
no game fish but did see a Sailfish jump in the same area on both days.
Last trips of 40 something by Mike Laubscher (4/25/2018)
Our last 2 trips were half-day trips starting early morning and both days had a screaming reverse current making fishing very difficult even with nice flat seas. Mornings are getting chilly now and there is dew on the cars parked outside early every morning of late and so the signs are that we are well into autumn now and that winter is coming.
Tuna on the bite today - Great fun on light tackle by Mike Laubscher (4/15/2018)
The Tuna had their own plans for us and we had non-stop Tuna action for most of the trip with 14 hook ups and landing .....

Black Marlin 3-2-1 - Released by Mike Laubscher (4/09/2018)
What a day we had today, we launched this morning to look for a Marlin into a 12knot NE wind which just got stronger as the day went on until it peaked at about 28knots. Water was warm and light green. We headed about 70km out to our selected grounds
Sharks on Light Spinning Tackle. by Mike Laubscher (4/04/2018)
These are fun trips for a family outing just to enjoy each other outdoors and have a blast, not serious fishing
Dorado on the bite today by Mike Laubscher (4/04/2018)
The sea was calm and flat, like glass, it was too nice, it is the conditions we always dream about and when we actually get to fish these days which happen so seldom one has to change ones tactics to get more action on the lures
