St Lucia 2014

22 04 2014

Well to sum it up, what flipping good weather for the easter weekend. That being said, the next question is how was the fishing? Fishing wasn’t has good as as hoped but by no means was it bad either. From what I experienced fishing from estuary beach for the 4 days that I was there was plenty of wave garrick to keep adult and kid entertained, they were mainly around the 30cm mark but some rather big ones came out here and there. There was the odd shad here and there, mainly small but the odd size one would come out. I did see some nice skates and some smaller sharks also being landed. The last day I was there a few nice stumpnose came out, both the ones I saw were on chokka baits. That about somes up the fish I caught and saw being caught, but I was told there were some good size pompanoe begin taken by the umfolizi mouth, also was reported that some grunter were also caught there. I never got a chance to fish the Estuary this time, but am hearing some stories that some grunter of size are being caught there too. Camped at Eden park due to crowds at Sugar Loaf, and let me tell you, what a pleasure that Eden park is, nice and quiet. Oh yeah a little tip for the people going for the wave garrik, they are really close inshore, even a small kid can make the cast to where they are biting…just thought I would add that too. Guys the weather was awesome, the seas were clean, winds ver y low, what more could one ask for on an Easter Weekend break hey….
