Kingfisher report

2008-07-12 00:00

It certainly looks as though the sardines have finally disappeared from the KZN coastline as there are now no reports of any action along the Transkei and KZN coasts. "Breaking news from Riyadh." On Wednesday they received a call regarding a report that sardines showed up at Mamba Ally. This report was confirmed and that the sardines were passing Scottburgh point. Although no nets were taken the fish were within casting distance at some of the deeper points and a few sards were jigged. A few of the netters also confirmed this and apparently they will be out in force. We understand that the guys from ESA were there and landed a few nice size garrick. Expectations are high that a few nets will be netted before the end of the month which bids well for us anglers. According to the netters they presume that the sardines will more then likely show up along the Warner Beach or Amanzimtoti area Just whether they get close enough to net is another story. Conditions look good so let’s hope we see those silver bullets soon.

Fishing in the Transkei has also stepped up a gear with reports of garrick being caught in the Port St Johns and Poenskop areas. Live bait seems to be a problem at these venues and anglers are going to great lengths to collect shad at different spots and transport them back. The Lighthouse area has been producing some fine results of kob by anglers using spoons at night. The river here has equally not let anglers down and some steady catches of grunter and kob are being reported. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
