Winter is behind us and we can look forward to some warmer weather and longer days with more fishing hours. The South Coast scene usually begins to slow from around now, but it seems we are a little out of sync as far as the seasons are concerned and while the North Coast has been enjoying good “summer fishing” for a few weeks already there are no signs of things winding down on the South coast just yet.
The Port Edward area has seen plenty of Shad being taken. Kob has also been caught in between the Shad mayhem. A fair number of Bronze Bream and gully fish have also been caught. The late evenings have produced good results with some decent size Kob and Grey sharks being landed.
The Margate pier is still producing plenty of Shad. The locals here are very pleased as the Shad run has been phenomenal this year. Not many Garrick have been taken but the great number of Shad has certainly made up for this. A few good Kob have come out here too.
Reports of the silver bullets being spotted in the Ramsgate and Margate on Wednesday turned out to be red eye and mackerel. These bait balls have caused turmoil amongst the fishing fraternity along the KZN coastline. Could a late sardine run still be on the way ?
Once again the Port Edward area has hit the headlines for all the right reasons. Splash Rock in particular has been fishing very well with Shad, Bronze Bream, Kob and Garrick being taken here, although the crowds may hamper angling as it has been packed with locals and visitors. Garrick are still being taken on live Shad that are being slid out, along with Kob at night.
Splash rock in the Port Edward has been fishing very well, with excellent catches of garrick. The shad is around throughout most days, while a few big kob were taken at night. A few grey sharks were also present at night.
The Sheppie area has shown positive results with excellent catches recorded recently. Kob has been feeding freely while the shad has moved in with good numbers. A few garrick has also been landed in the Sandspit area.
Port Edward has turned on the heat and producing by far the best results on the lower south coast. Splash Rock in particular has produced plenty of shad and in turn many have been slid out by those targeting Garrick. Reports suggest that shad have been feeding throughout most days. Plenty of bronze bream have also been taken around the rocky ledges.
The Sheppie area is still on track with some excellent catches being reported. Kob has been taken in good numbers at night while the Sandspit area is throwing shad and Garrick.
After a hectic 2 weeks which consisted of League 4 and the St Monica’s children’s day, the hype around our 5th League was rather blurred out as most guys were too busy to even consider chatting about it. Never the less, Sunday rolled around and we all met bright and early at the Clansthal main parking lot. The turnout was not as prolific as previous events, which was either a direct result of the huge sea that morning or the fact that guys were feeling the pain of this being a third weekend in a row of a KZN Fishing event.
