Eatern Cape Update

Post by wille jan » Sun Aug 12, 2012 10:14 am

Well, the weather lately is terrable here in the PE.

The few chances we were able to get out, we got some nice Carpenters.
They are all over now in big no and big sizes avaraging from 1.8kg to 3.2kg
Here we wait for the Allos to bloom as an traditional indication of their most abundens.

Got some Yellow Tail in the Bird Island area.

The line fish are on and off, due to the drastic changes in pressure.

My barromater looks like a jo jo.

I am hoping for a good Geelbek season towards the end of Oktober, through to March.

Port Alfred is producing nice cob catches.

In the PE bay area, the rock and surf gays are also getting cob up to 25kg.

All our rivers has came down already and the sea is a muddy brown, allong the coast, near all the river mouths.

Our Commercials are suffering at the moment. Bearly scraping by due to the weather.

The rain just do not stop. one day of winter sun and the rest of the time is spent around the fire. Guess we will see a lot of
new borns in late summer. :D

ek dink dis nogal al wat n mens die afgelope tyd kan doen om warm te bly en nie n babelas te kry nie.
in my life God comes first, fishing second, fishing gear third and the wife and child have to fight between fouth and sixth
