Henties Bay - Saltwater Fishing Report
With winter well entrenched now, the shark fishing has quietened down a little although there are still good numbers of bronze whaler sharks around. Spotted gully sharks remain abundant and the cow sharks are starting to show now that the water temperature has dropped.
The shore fishing for kabeljou and steenbras has been slow of late but the galjoen have more than made up for that in size and numbers.
The boat fishing, especially for the kabeljou, is outstanding right now and long may that continue.
Henties Bay Fishing Forecast:
The East Wind is blowing currently, and has been for a week now, and when that dies away, the fishing should pick up.
The sharks will become harder as the winter progresses but recent years has shown that they are still target-able right through the winter.
