Fishing in Hout Bays local waters
It is not often that my work takes me along one of the capes best scenic drives and on such a perfect day. I was taking a Cape Henry 21 drop keel to the CNC shop, as we will do the packing there.
The Sentinal as seen from Chapmans Peak drive, what a place to live and sail!
Looking down I saw these two trawlers, I thought they may be pair trawling, as they were so close to each other.
They are in fact inside Chapmans Bay, Hout Bay is to your right.
Fishing here means its very cost effective, as the off loading port is just out of sight and no more than five miles distant.
On my return it was easy to see they were tending their own nets.
Ring them in and suck them out.
