Sand sharks, ragged tooth sharks, guitar fish and skates are currently keeping the rock and surf  anglers busy on the KZN South Coast, as we start 2019. Umzumbe, the Sandspit and the Block at Port Shepstone as well as Uvongo pier, Orange Rocks , Margate Pier and Splash Rock in Port Edward are still the favoured spots.

A few bronze bream, stump nose and pompano are also being caught, together with an occasional shad, but these are getting more and more difficult to find.

Offshore has seen dorado and tuna making up the majority of the catch, with varying degrees of success. On some days fishing has been brilliant, while on others, the boys have really struggled to get a pull.

On the fly fishing scene, bass are biting freely and prior to the recent rains, which muddied the Umzimkulu River, a number of very nice scalies were being caught.

 

The club programme for the next few months is:
