The last month came with some good rain and some very intense thunderstorms.. Timing of these storms were like normal all mostly over weekends, testing the determination of visiting fishing groups to the area! Water temperature is currently sitting at 27″C.
Kosi bay mouth is looking beautiful at the moment! The main channel flowing into the estuary is deep and is only flowing to the south through the “aquarium”. This causes even stronger water flow through the mouth over the spring tide phases..
Groups visiting the mouth all got some good fish although no catches of big GT’s were made. Not that they were not around as we saw them smashing the shoals of mullet right by our feet.
Catches included a lovely 7kg River Snapper, a couple of decent sized Brassy Kingfish, Bigeye Kingfish, Pickhandle Barracuda, Large Spotted Pompano and lots of small Blacktip Kingfish.
Snorkeling in the mouth made it very clear that the shoals of huge Spotted Grunter are still around! We also had a great sighting of two Great Barracuda. Would be a special catch on fly!
1st and 2nd lake are still producing some amazing Spotted Grunter for the bait anglers. No reports came in on any caught on fly.
We also had some reports that reef 13 produced an exciting session or two! Worth the effort getting all the way out there!
The month ahead is going to be an exciting one! Remember when targeting GT’s at Kosi that it is most important to wear a flotation device when fishing off the rocky ledges or wading out onto sandbanks..
Happy festive season to all and good luck with getting that dream catch!
