Saltwater Angling Hot Spot
I cant call myself an skilled on Mazzppa, but I’ve had success there long ago.
Mazeppa is an odd place……it may be Crimson Hot or stone useless….like many locations in the Kei.
The nice thing is there are solely really three spots to focus on and one among them will likely be fishable in almost any conditions or wind.
To the left (North) of the cottages is Shark Point. An excellent spot the place you may get Garrick as well as enormous Sharks. It’s not an easy spot to land large sharks (no spot at mazeppa is basically). When fishing right here don’t overlook placing a chokka bait within the white water right subsequent to the point for a cob!!
Straight in front of the cottages is the island. This place can boil with garrick and the very best spot is about 3/4 up the left hand facet where the waves hit the shelf and cause a band of white water. For sharks you’ll be able to fish off the left hand aspect or straight off the front. When the sea is comparatively calm straight off the front is probabbly finest and it’s one in every of the easiest locations to land giant sharks at Mazeppa.
You’ll be able to cowl lots of water and place yourself favourably, regardless of the prevailing wind. Many a Leervis / Garrick have been caught off the island,especially on dwell shad. Leeries/Garrick have also been caught aplenty on plug and spoon from the island,largely off the northern aspect. Search for working white water close to the rocks, but, and typically it’s essential, try to place your self with the intention to just about solid over the working white water, someway if the Garrick begins chasing the spoon (generally without you even realising it) in the blue water and comply with it into the more turbulent white, they’re quite a bit less shy to take it, must feel protected underneath cover of foam-water. If shad are biting abunduntly and out of the blue stop, it might simply be the time to start out throwing plug or spoon. TRITON-chisselnose in your chosen weight comes extremely really useful, generally even an ouce or two beneath what you’d actually like to cast i.e 2.5 or three ounce max(size issues)
Dont underestimate how close to the rocks these critters will truly take a plug,a mate of mine has actually seen them get stone island light thermo cotton jacket “stranded” on the rocks of their frenzy to chase aforementioned plugs.
To the south of the cottages is the Boiling Pot. One other superb spot the place you possibly can expect virtually something within the ocean to rock up. Smaller sharks will be landed within the boiling pot itself but bigger sharks need to be worked to the seaside………A lot simpler mentioned than executed!! This spot is also superb for cob and different edibles. Firstly I’d put money into a 30 meter piece of rope. I believe the name is fairly self-explanatory,simply in case you must tie it to a chiller and throw it out to one among your party in the drink.
Albeit harmful it is rather productive for kob / cape stone island light thermo cotton jacket salmon at night and early mornings.
As the seaside starts south of the boiling pot is the 1st river….that is probably not worth fishing except you want to drop shot for moonies and so on!!
If the sea isn’t being productive and you’ve got a bakkie with diff lock or pref 4X4 you can drive out of Mazeppa and about 5kays out you will notice a dirt highway heading to the left. If you are taking this and follow it by way of the huts you’ll come to a buying and selling retailer kind of factor and from there you will see a track heading down to the second river.
That is a bit of hidden gem and that i beg you to please launch all fish caught. It is a tiny river but there are very nice cob to be taken. In the event you get some reside mullet you go the the spot where there’s a cliff opposite you…you cannot miss it. You principally bounce your mullet off the cliff and it’s within the deepest part of the river…(it is very narrow right here). You may catch a great deal of cob this fashion (3-8kilos)…
You possibly can also have an ideal time with dropshot and rapalas.
