Welcome to KZN Fishing
Fishing Report - 25 April 2014
After a rather disappointing Easter weekend it seems like we eager fisher-folk have to still wait for better fishing conditions to arrive. However a few promising reports have come in from the KZN Coastline. It seems like anglers on the KZN Coastline are slowly getting back on track. The elusive shad has come back on the bite at most popular spots.
The famous Splash Rock in the Port Edward area has been rather quiet recently. Reports from the locals suggest that not much action has been recorded here except for a few shad in the early mornings and grey sharks in the evenings. Fresh mackerel throw baits have shown the best results when targeting these grey sharks.
Margate pier is busy with small shad with the odd decent sized one in between. The Parks Board are regular visitors here but guys are still trying to take undersized fish.
The Block in the Port Shepstone area has produced a few decent catches. Kingfish, shad and grunter make up the target list along this part. Sardine and cracker shrimps prove to produce the best results.

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.

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.

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.
