I fished this morning at Margate Main Beach off the rocks on the right. There were quite a few fishermen/women who I hae not seen before, all having fun - but not much action.

One of the regulars for 2 small shad at about 6:30

I went to the furtherest out position and threw a big sardine on a drift bait with a big top bung. I have learned that if I pull the bung onto the top swivel and secure it there like that, it leaves a longer drint line and I have better luck if the bait trails behind the bung like this.

Today was not my day, I had a few mediicre pulls but no strike unfortunately. Probably really small shad or nibblers. I am dreaming of a nice Kob or a vris Garick.

I just enjoyed the morning and the relatively calm sea. compared to the weekend, which was pounding.

We think that the fish have gone down towards Port Edward, where apparently, there have been some sardines spotted - so we are all hoping for some action next week.

I will go down again at 4:pm and see what I can catch for supper.

I might also go right to the first bay and throw for some Bronze Breem on prawn.

Come boy.....lets see you pull !!

Hi porkhead

I just want to know for interest sake if the fishing peer is still there. I was on holiday there that year when that big waves made havoc of everything. I still remember a few local fishermen asked me to sign a petition because that the municipality must fix the peer that was damaged.Just want to know.

Lekker visvang

Yea, the pier is there...off limits but they are busy rebuilding it.

I went down again this afternoon, threw 6 half sardines, just got robbed by nibbers.

I then threw about 30 shots with a spoon, still nothing; then threw a lure, still nothing.

A guy on a very light rig, got 2 small blacktails- but no shad or anything.

I got to go to Durban tomorrow, so I will go down very early for a few shots.

The water is looking better and I truly hope that the sardines come when the water is nice and calm.

Cheers all

Shane

Ijust broke down on my way to Durban and was stranded in Hibberdene. Both the Mechanic and the Owner of the pub where I waited are avid fishermen/women and they say that they are catching everyday.

Salmon and Galjoen are almost guaranteed.

Lets hope that the cold front continues and the sardines jump out of the sea and nto my bait freezer.

Yea baby..... !!

By the way...an excellent and honest mechanic on the South coast and a fellow fisherman is Dries. His number is 082 891 5022. He helped me out alot and even gave me a lift back to Margate. Big Thumbs up...thanks boet !!

Tight Lines !!

I am getting picked up just now and am fishing Hibberdene, whilst waiting for my car to get fixed.

There is a very slight wind, which is forecasted to pick up to a 7-9 knot South Westerly this afternoon.

Wave height is about 1.5m every 10 seconds.

Now I want one of those Salmon that the Hibberdene locals were bragging about.

I will try and get some pics.

Tight lines !!
