Saltwater Angling Hot Spot
I cant call myself an skilled on Mazzppa, but I’ve had success there long ago.
Mazeppa is a wierd place……it can be Red Hot or stone useless….like many locations in the Kei.
The good thing is there are solely really three spots to focus on and considered one of them will likely be fishable in nearly any conditions or wind.
To the left (North) of the cottages is Shark Point. An excellent spot the place you can get Garrick as well as enormous Sharks. It isn’t an easy spot to land giant sharks (no spot at mazeppa is basically). When fishing right here don’t overlook putting a chokka bait in the white water right subsequent to the point for a cob!!
Straight in entrance of the cottages is the island. This place can boil with garrick and the perfect spot is about three/four up the left hand facet the place the waves hit the shelf and cause a band of white water. For sharks you may fish off the left hand side or straight off the front. When the sea is comparatively calm straight off the front is probabbly greatest and it is one in all the best locations to land massive sharks at Mazeppa.
You may cover plenty of water and position your self favourably, no matter the prevailing wind. Many a Leervis / Garrick have been stone island northampton caught off the island,especially on stay shad. Leeries/Garrick have additionally been caught aplenty on plug and spoon from the island,principally off the northern facet. Look for working white water close to the rocks, but, and typically it is vital, attempt to position your self as a way to nearly cast over the working white water, by some means if the Garrick starts chasing the spoon (sometimes with out you even realising it) within the blue water and observe it into the extra turbulent white, they’re so much less shy to take it, must really feel secure below cover of foam-water. If shad are biting abunduntly and immediately cease, it would simply be the time to start throwing plug or spoon. TRITON-chisselnose in your chosen weight comes extremely recommended, typically even an ouce or two under what you’ll really prefer to forged i.e 2.5 or three ounce max(size matters)
Dont underestimate how close to the rocks these critters will actually take a plug,a mate of mine has really seen them get “stranded” on the rocks of their frenzy to chase aforementioned plugs.
To the south of the cottages is the Boiling Pot. One other wonderful spot the place you may count on virtually something in the ocean to rock up. Smaller sharks will be landed within the boiling pot itself but bigger sharks have to be worked to the beach………A lot simpler stated than done!! This spot can also be superb for cob and different edibles. Firstly I’d put money into a 30 meter piece of rope. I think the identify is quite self-explanatory,just in case you need to tie it to a chiller and throw it out to considered one of your celebration within the drink.
Albeit harmful it is very productive for kob / cape salmon at evening and early mornings.
As the seaside begins south of the boiling pot is the first river….this is not likely price fishing until you wish to drop shot for moonies and so on!!
If the sea just isn’t being productive and you have a bakkie with diff lock or pref 4X4 you’ll be able to drive out of Mazeppa and about 5kays out you will notice a dirt road heading to the left. If you are taking this and comply with it via the huts you will come to a buying and selling retailer sort of thing and from there you will note a observe heading down to the second river.
That is just a little hidden gem and i beg you to please launch all fish caught. It’s a tiny river but there are really nice cob to be taken. When you get some dwell mullet you go the the spot the place there’s a cliff reverse you…you can’t miss it. You principally bounce your mullet off the cliff and it is in the deepest part of the river…(it is extremely narrow here). You possibly can catch loads of cob this way (3-8kilos)…
You’ll be able to also have an incredible time with dropshot and rapalas.
