Hi guys,

Im heading off to Ponta Malongane next week and want to do some R&S fishing in the area.

A couple of questions:

> Do I need a fishing permit - I have a SA permit
> Hows the Ponta Malongane area for fishing?
> Is fishing at night relatively safe?
> Whats the best baits to use in the area?
> Can I get fresh bait in Ponta Do Ouro?
> What species should I target at this time of year?

Thanks gents.

Shikz

No permit required for R&S. I don't want to be a downer but I have fished Ponta and Malongane (lures) for the last 5 years or so during February and have caught one small Blackfin Kingie.We go up every year cause my boys fish the Racetech Jetski comp while I thrash the surf. Bait is available in Ponta though the age can vary from time to time. Wonderful place though.The locals catch a lot of half-beaks on the low tide.

Thanks for the reply Plugger.

Yeah I've heard that the area can be hit and miss, more miss though.

It seems that night fishing produces well, so that will be the game plan.

I will be fishing with bait and will be looking for both eds and ineds, I've heard that there's nice flatties and blackfins in the Malongane area, will give it a bash nonetheless.

For sure do some night fishing in rocky areas. ghostcrabs and sandlice work well, Dont forget the sardine and chockka combo for snapper and big stumps. If you can ask one of the ski boats for a Kawa kawa fillet (bigg ass bonitos) and slide that at night for a treat. anything from stingray sandshark, blacktip or the odd mata hari or kingy.

you are very safe fishing at night here.

during daytime an hour before high tide take the bass rod a couple of prawns and go play. plenty of pompano and small stumpies around to keep you busy this time of year.

enjoy Malboer

Thank you very much Malboer,

Very encouraging to read about the species.

I plan to fish the early mornings and late evenings.

Any tips on reading the water? preferred baits for the different species?

Do the ski boat guys sell their catch?

Do you know the rough pricing to go out on the ski boat - as in, join a crew that's already going? any recommended charters that I could speak to?

I can't afford to go out by myself :(

Charters very expensive in Ponta.

You could however ask to be set on standby. they will then phone you early morning and tell you there have been a
cancelation. much cheaper but no guarantee of spending time on the water.

Most guys wont sell their catch. but as bonitos are mostly not eaten by us they are given to the Ghillies. sure if you ask and explain what you want it for the okes will give you some. I just release them unless I want to use it for bait.

Look for rip currents on sandy beaches over here there is normally a sandbank with a deep channel in front. the rip opens out to sea fish just left or right of the rip.

Rocky points areas look for working white water next to a calmer deeper pool cast to the edge of white water.

Speckled snapper. southern pompano, cavebass (lantern) Stumpnose. Gostcrab sardine chockka combo.

Spotted pompano Prawn and chocka sardine and sand lice.

mata hari big full body sard or mackeral. and sard chocka combo.

Fish as light tackle as you are comfortable with. the water is very clean.

just don't slide a pompano for kings on light tackle you will get busted up.

Thanks for the reply Malboer,

very interesting, will ask the ski boaters for some bonnies, think that bait will get smashed properly on a bank on the pushing tide.

As for the licence, I am just going to make a stop at the maritime office and get clarity (for R&S) and let you guys know what they say.

I did some Googling and see that. R&S permit costs Mt400 ! I have never purchased one and I go to Maritimo with the boys when they get their launch permits. The guy there doesn't have the best bedside manner but every year he dismisses my question with a wave of the hand ? Got me worried now, the last thing I want is to break a law there.

Seriously even the officials on the beach who check the catches on the jetski said no. Well we are going up in Febtuary for the comp again and I'm going to demand one. Sounds a bit doff though.
