We have entered a quiet time of the year for estuary fishing. Up at the Breede the river looks good but the fishing is slow with only a few smallish grunter, kob and leervis coming out. Close to home the Hermanus lagoon is filling up with fresh water following the good rains we have had but there has not been much flyfishing done. Hopefully the rains will continue and the mouth will open again this Spring.
Offshore most of the boats seem to have moved up to the West Coast where there are plenty of snoek and some big ones also. At Hermanus Walker Bay seems to be full of baitfish which have attracted scores of porpoises, whales, sharks and birds and the real excitement recently has been watching a pack of orcas hunting the porpoises up and down the coast and within 400 metres of the shoreline.
