De Mond

I fished De Mond on the Spring.  The problem with this sort of tide in this sort of Lagoon is the amount of weed that gets pushed accross the flat.  I spotted one grunter and lined up perfectly for a shot when a massive weed pile washed directly in the path.  I ducked down to stay out of view until it passed and when I got up the fish was a few meters away and spooked.  Lesson- always keep your eye on the fish.

I walked and walked and walked the flat.  An area where I know Grunter were caught previously.  I went about walking the flat at low tide and marked the banks with the highest amoutn of prawn holes.  Its quite interesting to see where grunter have blown.  You can even see which tide it was on.  The area creates a teardrop in the direction of flow.  I saw more evidence of holes blown on the pull.  This could be that that was before the water left the flat and it just leaves a better footprint (the holes made during the push would have been covered by the time the tide has turned).

No Grunter anywhere when the tide came in.  I saw two fish the whole weekend.  I did get some anchovy oil and white bread and chummed for the mullet.  I found an area with water running over a small weed bank into a channel and began about setting the slick.  It was about an hour until the big mullet came in.  One MONSTER came through the slick but as I was about to drop my cast a seagull landed almost on it and stalked it.

De Mond is a seriously temperamental place, and just when you think you've got it down it throws a weekend like this at you.  I will go back for the mullet.  The big mullet.

I find Aqua Camo makes about a three meter difference when it comes to close quarter sigh fishing

It was however the Pergiree/Supermoon.  And it doesnt seem to be good for fishing.  That said.  Any freak movement of water/tide/moon never seems to be.

Keep going.

Loved to stalk grunter on an incoming tide at Swartkops, about 4/5 in the morning, sight casting mud prawn to them as they're tailing! Grunter are one of the most unknown, hardest fighting sport fish around, and they taste good!
