Guests at the Umzimkulu Marina, Martin and his son Levis, joined us on a search for the elusive Geelbek Salmon, deep off Port Shepstone. With a bunch of freshly caught redeye sardines, with one real sardine in between – caught on Sabiki jigs, we got the anchor to hold only to find that the current was screaming again.
Whilst out there, the tuna came by in amongst the whales – one of them hit the plug a few times but never hooked up. So we returned inshore and with ultra light tackle, got stuck into a few bottomfish – 2 delicious Cavebass, a Scotchman and a huge Catface Rocked on a number 5 MYDO Baitswimmer. Using the large MYDO Baitswimmers for bottomfishing is proving to be very effective – especially with charters on the boat. The patented MYDO shape get’s your bait to the bottom with hydrodynamic forces aswell as gravity, behind it.
We shot a video of yesterday’s trip…
“A great day out deep searching for the elusive Geelbek Salmon, off Port Shepstone, South Africa. Eventually we settled for a brace of Cavebass, a huge Catface Rockod and a Scotchman (Red Stumpnose) caught bottom fishing closer in with ultra light tackle – good fun. The outgoing tide meant we had to be back earlier than later, and we still had a hard time getting back under the bridge…check it out!”
The crazy wobbly effect is how Youtube removed the shakiness…kinda cool hey?
