All things “fishy” in Hout Bay

The above picture was sent to 790Tv from Joe @ Body Solid in Hout Bay. That circle is a shoal of fish doing an amazing circular dance!

Here is a round up from the 2011 Tuna Derby in Hout Bay, taken from www.sadsaa.com:

Friday 4 November 2011 – Day Four

9 boats left this morning with reports of decent conditions in the deep. The 1st 4 boats unloaded 5 Yellowfin around the 45Kg mark and a number of Longfin.

Thursday 3 November 2011- Day Three

PM: Decent catches of Yellow and Longfin were made. Special mention to Tyler Loomes with his 91.2Kg Yellowfin (2nd place for the comp so far).

Condition for tomorrow in the South are looking hairy with 6m swells and associated winds but the West looks managable with 4m swells and light winds than the South.

AM: 24 boats set out this morning. At the 11am call up, reports of a few Yellowfin and Longfin had been received but generally a little slower than yesterday.

Wednesday 2 November 2011 – Day Two

AM: 18 boats left Hout Bay this morning. Conditions are a bit rough but early reports of a few Yellowfin have been received.

PM: Decent catches of Yellowfin and a few Longfin made it to the scales. Brain Meintjies landed a 93.55Kg and Steve Potter a 89.6Kg Yellowfin; the two largest of the day.

The Yellowfin ranged from the 40Kg mark with a few around the 78 and 80 Kg mark.

A great start
