Well the much anticipated first round of the KZN Fishing 2016 Social League is done and dusted, and what a fantastic day it turned out to be. Thanks again to all the participants, with this event attracting a record number of entrants.
Reports from the lower South suggest that there is some action in recent days with some Grey and Hound Sharks being taken off Splash Rock. Plenty of reef fish were also taken in the surrounding areas.
Locals at Ifafa have reported catches of stumpies and some impressive pompano. Stumpies seem to be feeding mainly on crayfish while the pomies were taking live bait. Brown skates and grey sharks have also been landed in the evenings. On a positive note, the locals have reported that live bait fish have been readily available around here.
Finally a Blast from the Past will hit the shores of KZN this Saturday. KZN Fishing’s Social League is finally back, with the first event being fished tomorrow at Toti. For all the league details and calendar log onto www.kznfishing.com
A few reef fish and a handful of Shad have been reported to have been landed. Some of the estuaries in the area are producing very good results.
The Margate Pier produced Shad on certain mornings, along with Blacktails and Stone Breams. The Ifafa and Mtwalume area has seen Karanteen, Pompano and Bronze Bream being taken. It seems like the Yellowtail Kingies have gone off the bite for the moment in and around this area.
The fishing report is back for 2016 and KZN Fishing promises to make this another memorable one. Once again the Social League is back with many exciting prizes. Please log onto the site for further detailed info. KZN Fishing extends its thanks to all the members that have provided much needed fishing information and pictures of catches during 2015. Let’s make 2016 a year to remember.
The lower south has had a rather slow start to the New Year with not many reports filtering through. Shad along this part of the coast have been surprisingly scarce for this time of the year. The Port Edward area has seen some action with bronze bream and some other decent gully fish being taken. The late evenings have produced a few hammerhead sharks off the deep water points.
The Ifafa and Mtwalume area seems to be a very promising fishing destination of late. Many Pompano and Kingies have been taken in and around these areas. For those of you that are opting to target these fierce fighting fish, heavier tackle is the route to take. Live Karanteen is also the preferred choice of bait for these fish.
Once again the KZN Fishing Social League is back with many exciting prizes. Please log onto the site for further detailed info. Remember guys you have until 31 January to register.
Reports from the far South suggest that the Shad are on a feeding frenzy there recently. Splash Rock in the Port Edward area is fishing very well. Catches of Shad, Grey Sharks and Blue Skates make up the target species here. Uvongo and Orange Rocks have shown similar results. Margate Pier has been throwing some decent fish. Catches of Raggies and Hound Sharks have also surfaced.
The Mtwalume and Ifafa areas are still fishing very well. Kingfish and Pompano have been taken in good numbers here. Reports from the locals suggest that live bait is most likely to produce the goods.
Not many reports have filtered through from the lower South Coast but the Bronze Bream are feeding freely as the water conditions are almost perfect for them. A few Grey and Hammerhead sharks have been taken at the famous Splash Rock. Shad have been feeding on most mornings with a few excellent sizes being taken.
Uvongo and Orange rocks have suffered a similar fate with some days where absolutely nothing is happening and others where some good runs occur.
