Welcome to KZN Fishing
Fishing Report - 17 April 2014
It seems like good weather is expected for the Easter weekend. With the cold front that we experienced hopefully it should bring the fish back on the bite.
Splash Rock is producing some decent size shad but these are pretty scarce. Some bronze bream and other rock fish have also been caught. A few hammerheads and kob did make an appearance in the late evenings. The estuaries on the lower south coast are producing a variety of species including juvenile kingies, mullet, snappers, and perch.
Reports from Sandspit in the Sheppie area have seen grunter still around but the numbers have dropped due to the heavy rains recently. The shad have disappeared due to the dirty water. The non eds are around, hound sharks and flat fish have been caught but mainly towards Hibberdene and the Southbroom area.
Ifafa has seen a few yellowtail kingfish still being taken on live karanteen. The bait fish have been plentiful so garrick should be in the area soon. Depending on water conditions the shad have been present on most mornings.

The Transkei region has been fishing much better with the cooler water as many of the winter species are being landed. Hammerheads are proving to be the number one on the target list. A whole chokka or mackerel slid off most deep water points have results in decent sized hammerheads being hooked. Plenty of shad and bronze bream have also been feeding in the sheltered bays and ledges.
Angling along the Port Edward area improved considerably. A number of hammerhead and hound sharks have been landed in the Splash Rock area while Lucky Dip has seen some rather impressive cave bass and bronze bream being landed. Shad have been around on most mornings.
Fishing Report - 28 March 2014
Some excellent catches of both edibles and in edibles has been reported from all over the KZN Coastline. The slightly cooler mornings have brought the fish on the bite. This is certainly good news and many will welcome a bumper winter season.
News from the Port Edward area suggests that the Shad have been feeding in the mornings and late evenings but not many making the legal size. Black tail, bronze bream and a few rockod have also been taken in and Port Edward and Lucky Dip areas. Plenty of spinner sharks have also been around making themselves a pest as they were attacking any bait presented to them.

Reports from the Port Edward area suggest that the shad are feeding at first light. Kob and grey sharks are also feeding in the late evenings. It seems like the slightly colder water has brought the brusher on the bite, with one angler getting lucky and landing himself one.
