Wahoo are around in fair number as is reported by spearos up and own the KZN coast. The blue water has been coming right close in often, last weekend the water was a toasty 25.19 degrees. Just the way the Wahoo and Billfish like it. Yep, with the Wahoo come the Sailfish, and the Striped Marlin. The stripeys around here this time of year come in shoals.! And we can expect the second showing of dorado anytime soon. Especially with the recent downpurs and resulting brown water line.
Over to Jason…
Diving conditions have been average this week with one or two day’s being excellent. Autumn fish are here with shoals of 10kg spannish mackerel around and wahoo putting in an appearance . Saturday a light southwest blows early switching to a light to moderate northeast later in the day with a negligible swell of 1.3m running. Sunday a light to moderate offshore blows in the morning switching to a moderate onshore in the afternoon with the swell running at 1.6m. So Saturday gets100 percent green light for a dive with game fish switching on as the onshore starts to blow. Fish of the week goes to Luke with a slab of a wahoo and club merit fish goes to Garrett with a bus Queen Fish. As always dive safe and straight spears.
Clean and clear diving conditions last week. For a change! Says spearfishing scribe Jason Heyne.
The diving conditions last week were slightly above average with good weather . Big queen mackerel and ambers are coming out. Saturday a moderate northeast was forecast and played out with a 1.6m swell running. Sunday the northeast wind was up early morning with a light offshore blowing switching to a light onshore later on with a 1.7m swell running. Viz was reported north and south. Club merit fish of last week went to Dylan with his 1st yellow fin tunny and fish of the week goes to Neil with his pending SA record amber! As always dive safe and straight spears.
Fresh news in from Jason Heyne featuring a helluva yellowfin weighing in at 27 kg! Considering the unideal conditions spurned by the cut off low weather phenomoenon we just been through, this fish is a huge hit! – Xona
“The diving conditions this week have been well below average. To top it off the coast was hit by a huge storm on Wednesday so diving this weekend is out unless you like diving in mud! Well done Dylan Koekemoer on getting club merit fish of the week again and Marcus on getting fish of the week a 27kg yellowfin tuna! As always dive safe and straight spears.”
Brusher reported by KZN Spearos. As well as the usual suspects, posts Jason Heyne from Durban waters.
The diving conditions this week have been below average with one or two good days. A huge low pressure system has moved in and the sea is literally on its head today (Friday). Brusher have started making an appearance and the usual suspects (garrick, snook, couta and daga salmon) are around. Saturday morning the south West continues to blow dropping off during the day with the swell running at 3m dropping off to 2m late in the day. Sunday morning a light offshore wind blows switching to a moderate north east later in the day with the swell running at 1.8m. Viz was reported south today. So it looks like Sunday morning may be diveable. Well done Peter Jacobs on getting fish of the week a very respectable garrick of 16.8kg! As always dive safe and straight spears
Nice selphie man!
To all like minded conservationists…pls sign against shark nets below…Tx
Jason Heyne checks in with his weekly spearing report – this week featuring some eagerly awaited for daga salmon. They are also here for sardines, and the big ones are often caught from the shore, right in the shallows! Just please be considerate with this fragile population. The big ones are our breeding stock, and we need them alive! Take your one for the season by all means – they are a very difficult fish to catch or shoot. But leave the rest for next year! TX Jason
“The diving conditions this week have been above average. Daga salmon have made an appearance in the shallows down south, big garrick up north and decent wahoo out deep. Saturday and Sunday a light offshore wind blows in the morning switching to a light on shore in the afternoon. Swell starts at 1.5m on Saturday dropping down to 1m on Sunday. Both days are looking top for a dive. Well done John on getting fish of the week a 24.5kg daga salmon on a shore dive. Good luck to all competing in the second day of natal champs tomorrow. Viz was reported north and south today. As always dive safe and straight spears.” – Jason
The big daga salmon have made their annual pilgrimage up to KZN, to lie in wait for the sardines
