    Default Mbotyi Wild Coast

    Anyone fished this area? We are going there in December and I am hoping the mouth is open and that there is some ff opportunities. Anyone been there?

    I fished there about 3 years back. I fished pretty hard but I must confess my background is more freshwater. Caught very little. A few river perch under the trees with a popper (especially as it was getting dark) and a little kingie.

    Its a lovely spot, but fishing wise the estuary @Mbotyi is quite small & shallow, didn't have much luck there. I did get a couple of largespot pampano in the surf along the sandy beaches though.
