The lower south had very little to report with just a few decent catches taken in his part of the world. Those choosing to fish the covered gullies and ledges were rewarded with catches of Bronze Bream.
Orange Rocks and Potholes were producing fish at night but the strong winds have negatively affected catches of Kob. Port Shepstone showed similar results. Catches of Kob and Garrick have reduced significantly.
Fishing down South has dropped considerably over the past few days. Although last weekend did produce a few catches of note at Splash Rock. Bronze Bream, Kob and some big Black Tail made up for most of the catches. Those targeting the Bronze Bream off rocky ledges had most success with red prawn in foamy, white water. Those wanting to target Kob were getting the best results at Port Shepstone. Most of these fine specimens were taken at night.
Not far off at Orange Rocks the Garrick have been feeding freely but obtaining live shad seems to have been a major issue. Kob has also made an appearance along with Bronze Bream.
Shad along the South Coast have been scarce of late with only a handful being taken in the Port Edward areas. Poor water and weather conditions have been the major cause to the drop in this sort after fish. A few Kob has been reported to have been landed in the evenings at Splash Rock.
Orange Rocks through to Uvongo pier is still seeing action, with Shad still feeding. The number of catches has dropped from previous weeks but the fish are still around.
The lower South Coast has improved from last week with sporadic catches of Shad, Garrick and Kob has filtered through. Splash Rock and Lucky Dip produced most of these catches. Splash Rock this past weekend produced plenty of shad. Those targeting Bronze Bream were not disappointed, with some impressive catches on red prawn. Uvongo, Orange Rocks and Potholes did throw some shad in the mornings and some very decent sized Kob at night. Port Shepstone has attracted many anglers to its shores recently with Shad, Garrick and Kob being the main target species in this area.
Due to recent events that happened at Durbanville, it was decided by Management to change the venue for this league event to Sezela Mill Bay. A venue that proved successful in previous events held by KZN Fishing.
However the weather seemed to prove otherwise as all of us awoke to heavy rains on the morning of the event. This may have proven a deterrent to many anglers, but we still succeeded in having a considerable turnout at the event. Anglers began arriving at Sezela from as early as 4:30am and by 5:50am registrations were completed and the briefing finalised. Anglers began making their way down to their chosen spots, with the majority opting for the rocks at Mill Corner.
