The Port Edward area has seen plenty of grey sharks taken in the evenings while the early mornings are still producing shad. The Garrick has been few and far between but the bronze bream has been prolific on red prawn.
Margate is still giving the locals great joy with shad still being taken in good numbers. Plenty of black tails, stone bream and bronze bream have been taken along the pier.
The Port Edward area is finally producing some impressive catches. Shad has been prolific in both numbers and size. There is a slight concern from the locals with the lack of Garrick in the area, but plenty of decent sized kob has been taken in the evenings at Lucky Dip and has somewhat made up for the Garrick absence.
Winter is behind us and we can look forward to some warmer weather and longer days with more fishing hours. The South Coast scene usually begins to slow from around now, but it seems we are a little out of sync as far as the seasons are concerned and while the North Coast has been enjoying good “summer fishing” for a few weeks already there are no signs of things winding down on the South coast just yet.
The Port Edward area has seen plenty of Shad being taken. Kob has also been caught in between the Shad mayhem. A fair number of Bronze Bream and gully fish have also been caught. The late evenings have produced good results with some decent size Kob and Grey sharks being landed.
The 6th event on the KZN Fishing’s league calendar will be held this Saturday the 6th of September at Ansteys / Brighton beach. Registrations start at 10am and lines in at 11am. For more details and information, kindly log onto the forum.
Word from the lower South Coast is that Shad are feeding freely throughout most days. Bronze bream are also keeping anglers busy. Port Edward has produced some excellent fish recently, with some good sized Garrick around the 14kg mark. Plenty of Kob has fallen to live baits at night too.
Reports of the silver bullets being spotted in the Ramsgate and Margate on Wednesday turned out to be red eye and mackerel. These bait balls have caused turmoil amongst the fishing fraternity along the KZN coastline. Could a late sardine run still be on the way ?
Once again the Port Edward area has hit the headlines for all the right reasons. Splash Rock in particular has been fishing very well with Shad, Bronze Bream, Kob and Garrick being taken here, although the crowds may hamper angling as it has been packed with locals and visitors. Garrick are still being taken on live Shad that are being slid out, along with Kob at night.
