Fishing Tip – White Stumpnose

White Stumpnose is one of the main species that fishermen target when fishing Langebaan.

Although they take white mussel as bait, it is actually live prawn they like. Normally these prawn can be pumped at low tide, but lately it has become more difficult to get tally. The first thing that springs to mind is that the stocks are depleted due to over pumping by so many fishermen…well that`s not true. I have my secret places where to pump and even here they are hard to find. I wonder if there is a correlation to the availability of prawn and the feeding habits of the Stumps.. lately these Stumps don`t just grab the bait like always.

New Map of Langebaan Lagoon

Langebaan Lagoon Map


Langebaan Lagoon Map

The new map of the Langebaan Lagoon.
The idea originally started when we realized that many visitors arrive here with their boats but do not know where to launch their boat or to go fishing.

The map shows Fishing, KiteSurf, hobie- and wind surf areas as well as restricted areas on the lagoon.  On land it indicates hiking trails and other activities like horse riding and cycling. The map is 620×450 in size (about an A2 size). On the back of the map is interesting information about the lagoon, emergency numbers, fish sizes, etc.

The aim was also to produce a map that is of high quality so that you can frame it and put it up in your holiday home, guest house, restaurant or shop. Thus the map is available in folded maps for the tourist as well as unfolded maps on thicker paper which is ideal to laminate or frame.Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download
