January Catches Channel from the "Kaskazi"


CHANNEL AREA
The first two weeks of January gave some strong winds and bumpy seas, but towards the end the weather and the seas calmed down giving many occasions to our fishermen to go out and enjoy their fishing; in fact many boats went out this months and reported good catches.
Surprisingly the Yellowfin Tuna are still around in the Channel in abundant numbers although their sizes are quite small, but many boats had good fun and managed to catch some especially the Juniors on Rose Bud;
Amongst the Yellowfin Tuna, they managed to pick up some Long Tail Tuna, which are quite unusual for our catches.
The biggest YFT this month was a 9.2 kg fish caught by Alistair on Rose Bud.
Also the Dorado are still around in good numbers, although their sizes are getting smaller and smaller and they are averaging around 3 to 4 kg.
Some odd Wahoo have been caught from several boats being the biggest one a 25 kg fish caught by Jason on his dinghy Puju.

The reef fish season has definitely started in the Channel.
Jason and Mady, managed to pick up some Giant Trevallies and several species of Trevallies together with other reef fish in general, included an Almaco Jack and Rusty Jobfish. They also managed to pick up a nice Giant Grouper of 47.1 kg on 80 lbs.
The biggest Gt in the Channel was a 32. 3 kg fish caught by Jason.

Only two Sailfish were caught this month both on Pollyanna, one of which was caught during the Vodacom Species Competition held on 24th January, this was a 26.5 kg fish and it was caught by Abbas.
The biggest catch in the Channel was Pollyanna (Jason, Mady, Hussein) with 172.9 kg fish in a day.

VODACOM FISHING COMPETITION On the 24th January we held a Vodacom Species Competition, in conjunction with a Junior Fishing Comp.
Unfortunately not all the boat managed to report a catch and some boats arrived late at the finish line.

The first Boat was Pollyanna with 84 points (Jason, Abbas, Spiros and Mady)
The second Boat was Visblick with 11 points (Johann and Anet Rheeder)
The Juniors on Rose Bud had a very good catch as well which would have made them qualify amongst the first three boats with 79.5 points, but their catches could not be considered for the final result because they arrived after the time limit.

The first Angler was Abbas (Pollyanna) 26.5 pts
The second Angler was Jason (Pollyanna) 14.5 pts
The third Angler was Anet (Visblik) with 11 pts

The best Lady was Anet (Visblik) with 11 points
The best Junior was Brandon (Flycatcher) 2.4 pts.
