Although it is unusual for this time of year there have been plenty of shad around, mainly off the beach at the bay at St Lucia. They tend to be on the small side but at least the season re-opened on December1. Further north people have been catching small GTs at Mission Rocks and Vidal.
Luckily, we have had good rains and the Umfolozi is running strongly and filling up the estuary through the channel diverting the water into the lake. However, there is a concern in that this brings in a large amount of silt. Hopefully the rains will continue as the mouth of the lake has been closed for at least 12 years.
