Welcome to KZN Fishing
Fishing Report - 07 March 2014
After a week of disappointing fishing the KZN Coastline is back on track with excellent conditions and reports some impressive catches coming through.
Reports from the Splash Rock area suggest that shad and bronze bream are still being taken. Bigger baits that were slide out resulted in grey and hammerhead sharks being landed. Brown rays have also made up part of the catches here.
The Margate area has proven to be drop shot haven at the moment. Plenty of reef fish and other bait fish have kept the light tackle enthusiasts happy. Catches of bronze bream and shad has slowed down here.
Another outstanding report from Amith on the lower south:
Sea was not great this past weekend but we still persevered.
Fishing Report - 28 February 2014
This week was certainly not one of the very productive weeks on the KZN Coastline, however when the weather and water conditions have been right, some decent fish were taken.
The Margate area has seen just a handful of gully fish being taken. The shad have been present on certain mornings but very little making the legal size. Those targeting bronze bream had very little luck while the stone bream have now taken top spot; there has also been black tail and karanteen on the bite.
The Port Shepstone area is back on track producing some decent catches.The Block has been throwing grunter and salmon while the Sandspit area has seen a few small flatfish being taken.
Report from Amith from the lower south: The sea was very unsettled over the weekend after the cold front that came through on Thursday last week. I tried my favourite spot at Izotsha River mouth on Sunday morning. The point was a washout so I walked 500m north along the beach and found a nice deep hole. I did manage a 0.5kg kob on a chokka and prawn combo. The fish was released after this quick photo.

No angler on the KZN Coastline can complain about the conditions and different species being taken along our coastline so far this year. Excellent catches have been recorded from the Transkei all the way to St Lucia. Plenty of big sharks are still being taken in the Transkei area. A few big kob have also been around the Poenskop area.
The Port Edward area has seen action mainly in the early mornings and afternoons with hammerhead sharks and a fair number of flat fish being taken. The ledges around Splash rock did throw plenty of gully fish for the light tackle enthusiasts. The evenings produced kob and grey sharks.

The KZN Coast is still experiencing excellent fishing all along its coastline. Excellent catches of various species have come through.
Splash Rock in the Port Edward area has fished well when the conditions were good. Plenty of brown skates and grey sharks were taken here, while the ledges all around have produced bronze and stone bream along with black tail.
It seems like KZN Fishing enthusiast Amith is having to splendid start to 2014. He had the following to report: I got a 16kg (153cm TL) Hound Shark on Sunday morning at Izotsha River mouth. Bait used was a small slide mackerel. The sea was a bit big and unsettled with presence of a major sand bank along most of the lower south coast. Luckily I found a channel at the river mouth to slide my bait.
