A dusky kob that I tagged at Struisbaai on the 16th of December 2014 has been recaptured. Sadly the fish was not released for a second time.

The fish was free for 112 days, grew from 66 to 74 cm (8cm of growth) and was recaptured 10km due east on Struisbaai plaat.

I caught the kob using a silicone mullet, intermediate line and 9wt outfit fishing the rocky surf zone of Struisbaai coastline and it was captured on conventional gear, presumably bait in the sandy surf zone of Struisbaai plaat
