Fishing Report January 2016

Captain Bramson’s Fishing Report

SHAYAMANZI II Captain Bramson Chihota

Coming to the end of 2015 was a difficult one as we saw heavy storms drive rain away and KZN being pronounced a drought stricken province! Also so many dams and rivers stopped flowing for the first time in more than 12 years, especially the Pongola river.Captain Bramson

With regards to fishing, it was the most memorable time of the year because we recorded the most and the biggest fish. The average catch was 20 fish per day per cruise, and the biggest was 4.5kg. Most of the fish were caught on the South Eastern end of the dam.

It proved the saying right that says “less volume of water more fish caught”. To all of you fisherman heading to Northern KZN, come to Shayamanzi Houseboats, to sit back and relax coz the fishing guides here know it all. Catch with Sardines or Rappalas and Spinners we know what is the best at that moment. Thank you so much, meet you here!

Planning Ahead

Fishing Season is still in full swing until the end of April and we still have a few days available. Valentines is around the corner! Or plan your Cruise Season holiday now. The dates for Mountain Biking cruises will be available by the end of February.

Spending time aboard, on the peaceful Lake Jozini, is the perfect way to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and soak in the peace and beauty of nature. Don’t delay! There’s nothing more frustrating than planning a getaway only to find out that there is no more space available.

So, book your family break, corporate teambuilding or celebration cruise now, or ring the buddies to plan the ultimate fishing excursion. Contact us on 034 4132299
