Piscine view: A Haul of Yellowtail!
Spotted! A haul of yellowtail! (Seriola lalandi)
Where? Kalk Bay Harbour, Kalk Bay | Map
Loving SA yet? No!
Why not? Because we were caught by the local fisherman, obviously!
Highlight so far? Swimming freely off Cape Point, eating every smaller fish in sight.
Sore points? Ending up in an admittedly-delicious butter herb sauce at the Olympia Cafe.
Yellowtail is a staple of the Cape seafood table – a firm fish that’s meaty but not too heavy. It’s also a good fighter on the line, and features in many a southern African game fishing expedition.
