@JVW - Janee, een dag vang 'n mens 7 spesies binne 'n uur en die ander dag trek jy ander mense se gebreekte lyne uit die water met die aas nog mooi heel op die hoek. :-D

@visjag - 'n Mens kan by die Pos kantoor by Stilbaai ook 'n pamflet kry wat die zones aan wys.

Die water is altyd plat en meeste van die tyd skoon in die rivier, lol

Ek kyk nou gety tafels en eerste lig Saterdag oggend gaan ek na 'n bank wat ek ken en die gety gaan perfek wees vir tailing grunter. Die probleem is die gety is by daai tyd nog te hoog om prawn te pomp (Ek kom eers Vrydag aand 11h00 daar aan)

Ek maak dit nou een van my doelwitte om Saterdag oggend eerste lig 'n tailing grunter met 'n plastic te vang... Ek het dit al probeer, baie disappointing uitgedraai.

Ek sal julle op hoogte hou met die preparation, ek het baie odds-n-ends vir bass en dan ook 'n paar GULP products, ek beplan om so hybrid gedoente tussen soft plastic en fly tying bymekaar te sit op 'n dropshot hoekie...

Ek het al hiervan gehoor en ek kan dit glo aangesien hulle Gobies eet (Dis 'n ligte amper half deurskynende vissie wat op die sandplate woon). Ek het al heelwat chases deur grunters gekry waneer ek met paddletails vang vir kabeljou.

Eks seker dit sal werk, maar om die bootjie te stop op die bank en prawns te pomp reg langs die spot waar ek vang is nogsteeds vinniger as om na die reef toe te ry en klipvissies te vang.

Ek was baie gelukkig jaar gelede met plastics en kabeljou. As ek weer Stilbaai toe gaan sal ek ook plan moet maak om die grunter te soek. Mens moet maar vroeg roer voor die ander mense vang, klein middag slapie vang en dan weer die skemer op die water wees. Dit is ñ baie lekker plek om te hengel.

Also coming here in July! but I'm not good at saltwater fishing, last time I came all I caught was a poisonous puffer fish :P So hoping to catch some Kob and Garrick by the sandy place between the bridge and the river mouth? Is that possible in winter? Will be doing the same thing as bass fishing except with these 13cm Storm WildEye Jerkin' Minnow shown in the pic, but pink top not purple

Don't know if you will get Garrick in the river when the water is this cold, but there might be one or two in the river that didn't have the guts to mission up to the East coast. I wouldn't ever target kob over the shallow sand banks you're talking about, especially in winter.

I found the kob very quiet in the river during winter, none of those large schools of small kob you get in summer, but only the few resident breeding bulls. They lay in the deep holes and they're a bit lathargic due to the cold water, but they still have to eat! If you're lucky enough to work your dropshot very slowly right past its nose you will get picked up, and boy, they do not like to be woken from their winter slapie!

Just realise that it's not really kob season so prepare to put in a crap load of time and except the fact that if you blank it's normal for winter... and if you get that big breeding bull, remember that it is a called that for a reason, so keeping it is not really honourable, even if it is legal...

Oh yea catch and release fosho! But dam winter even more bleak than I thought, should probably target the grunters like you then? Don't have plastic prawn things but these Kalins Salty Lunker Grubs [Chartreuse Salt & Pepper colour], will work for both grunters and kob? and using the worm thing with mustad size 1/0 bass hooks haha?? I dunno how else. And with a worm weight to make it scrub against the floor,
the worm thingies are about 4cm without the tail

I am  a bass fisherman myself, skills come come in handy for kob, but not so much for grunter.

You will get your best results with grunter casting real bait as far away from human activity as posible and waiting... when it gets nice and quiet, then you get grunter.

While you wait for the bite, pay attention to the river around you, wear your polarised glasses (even when bait fishing) to get to know the structure... (Wade in, don't be affraid to get wet). After a couple of times you'll be more familiar with structure, tides, water colour, water temperature, moon phase, etc... By this time you would've started to pick up on patterns like where and when the grunters tail (Usually a shallow bank) and then you may become obsessed to stalk and catch them... Then (and I'm talking about me now if you haven't realised yet) once you've caught a tailing grunter on regular bait (Not easy), then you want to try and catch it on plastic. Then you realise that they are very full of crap when they tail and plastic don't really appeal to them there and then... Then you try to find/buy/make ultra-realistic plastic lures especially for the tailing bank to see if that won't work (That's where I'm at now b.t.w), and on, and on, and on...

They do take plastics much more freely in the deeper channels where you target kob, try the McCarthey Olive& Pearl Jesrk Shad (4" - 6"), but remember their mouths are not as big as kob and bass... My thumb just fits into a size (40cm) grunter's mouth to give you an idea...
