Saltwater Angling Scorching Spot
I cant name myself an knowledgeable on Mazzppa, however I’ve had success there long ago.
Mazeppa is a strange place……it can be Red Hot or stone dead….like many places in the Kei.
The nice thing is there are solely really three spots to concentrate on and one in every of them will probably be fishable in almost any conditions or wind.
To the left (North) of the cottages is Shark Point. A brilliant spot where you may get Garrick as well as large Sharks. It is not a straightforward spot to land large sharks (no spot at mazeppa is really). When fishing here don’t overlook putting a chokka bait in the white water right next to the point for a cob!!
Immediately in entrance of the cottages is the island. This place can boil with garrick and the best spot is about three/4 up the left hand facet where the waves hit the shelf and trigger a band of white water. For sharks you possibly can fish off the left hand aspect or straight off the entrance. When the sea is comparatively calm straight off the front is probabbly best and it is considered one of the best places to land giant sharks at Mazeppa.
You may cowl lots of water and place your self favourably, no matter 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. Look for working white water near the rocks, but, and generally it’s essential, try and position yourself as a way to just about forged over the working white water, one way or the other if the Garrick begins chasing the spoon (generally without you even realising it) within the blue water and comply with it into the more turbulent white, they are lots less shy to take it, must feel safe below cover of foam-water. If shad are biting abunduntly and all of the sudden cease, it would just be the time to begin throwing plug or spoon. TRITON-chisselnose in your chosen weight comes highly recommended, sometimes even an ouce or two below what you would really prefer to forged i.e 2.5 or three ounce max(dimension issues)
Dont underestimate how near the rocks these critters will really take a plug,a mate of mine has actually seen them get “stranded” on the rocks in their frenzy to chase aforementioned plugs.
To the south of the cottages is the Boiling Pot. Another amazing spot where you may anticipate nearly something in the ocean to rock up. Smaller sharks could be landed in the boiling pot itself but larger sharks need to be worked to the beach………Much easier said than accomplished!! This spot can also be excellent for cob and other edibles. Firstly I might put money into a 30 meter piece of rope. I believe the name is fairly self-explanatory,just in case you have to tie it to a stone island jas prijzen chiller and throw it out to certainly one of your get together in the drink.
Albeit dangerous it is extremely productive for kob / cape salmon at night and early mornings.
As the beach starts south of the boiling pot is the 1st river….this is not really worth fishing unless you need to drop shot for moonies and Stone so on!!
If the sea is just not being productive and you have a bakkie with diff lock or pref 4X4 you can drive out of Mazeppa and about 5kays out you will see a dirt road heading to the left. If you take this and follow it by the huts you will come to a trading store sort of thing and from there you will see a track heading down to the second river.
This is a little hidden gem and i beg you to please release all fish Stone Island Online caught. It is a tiny river but there are really nice cob to be taken. In case you get some dwell mullet you go the the spot where there is a cliff opposite you…you can’t miss it. You basically bounce your mullet off the cliff and it is in the deepest part of the river…(it is extremely slender here). You may catch loads of cob this way (3-8kilos)…
You can also have a great time with dropshot and rapalas.
