Tuna off the bottom

Offshore Fishing Report – Durban – 17-12-2017

We had a bunch of guys that wanted to go bottom fishing today and launched at 05h00 for a 6hour trip. Sea conditions were ideal for bottom fishing today with a 1-2knot S-N current and a very light SE wind, so light that one could hear a ship’s engines from 2 miles away. The sea was flat and glassy with temperatures between 23.5degC and 24.5 deg.C.

We trolled out to the reefs but nothing toughed the lures but we caught a lot of Bottom fish today of all kinds, even a Yellowfin Tuna took a bait of the bottom.
