JD - thanks for this, I have a few questions...

How close are the better fishing spots?

Is Cast netting (Obviously with a license) for Mullet allowed in the River?

Thanks

I know i am not JD but i have become very fond of TMR.I think it is a fantastic place and all the amnity's one need as an angler.

I can tell you from experience that the spots are just outside the resort itself.There is a top KOB hole as you exit the resort towrds the beach and to your left.Also the whole stretch produces some excellent catches all year round.The mouth is about a 15 minute walk fro the resort on the beach.

And yes you may net in the river i have on a number of occations seen the locals there netting,Oh! wait locals hmm well Reefman i think JD will have to confirm with the netting issue as when it comes to locals in most cases they dont have the necessary permits so im not really sure if it is allowed or not..

Cheers Riymos

Hi Reefman,

How close are the better fishing spots?

This will depend on what you are targeting and what conditions are like. Remember we are at the mouth of the Tugela River which is the biggest river in KZN. Depending on the river flow rate sandbanks ecs can change within a day or two. So its important to talk to locals to find out where most of the action is taking place.  Fishing success also depend on what specie you want to target. Very few locals target non-edibles, I am probably the exception to this rule. Other than that most good fisherman can read water well and know what bank formation to look for for whatever specie they intend to catch. Besides Tugela Mouth there are some other good spots within half an hours drive from us that might be worth visiting as well.


Is Cast netting (Obviously with a license) for Mullet allowed in the River?

A very difficult question to answer and I would not like to put myself on the spot here. All I will say is read what it says on your license. Does it specify anything?

In KZN when you purchase your castnet license, you are allowed to pick two rivers to net in. When you go to the licensing department they should be able to inform you of what rivers are still available, as there are a limited number of issues per river and netting in some rivers is band altogether.

And yes the Tugela is one of the rivers you can get a license to net in.

Hey Guys,

How about us organizing a social get together at TMR for a weekend.

Not neccessarily for a comp but just to fish and hook that monster.

What do you guys feel.

I don't know Where you got that info from GOJ, but I don't think thats correct. I bought my Cast net permit at Maphelane... no-one asked me to choose anything and I grilled the ParksBoard guys. When I got onto the beach, there's a big sign saying: "No Cast net use in the Estuary". Go figure!

There is nothing on the permit itself about choosing rivers and there's nothing in the Recreational fishing regulations either. There is a list of conditions about species, size and limits, but nothing else. It's apparently up to the specific Parks Board in the area as to whether Cast Nets are allowed or not.

So, if there ain't no sign, then it must be fine!

Reefman, the post office and satilite KZN Parksboard offices do not have the authority to specify rivers, the licence is for open sea.

Trust me, I go to the the KZN Wildlife regional office here in Durban to get all my licenses and when you walk into there to get a castnet license they will ask you if you would like to choose to rivers. They hold the register there. If you do not specify rivers the license is issued for open sea only.

Give em a call

Durban Office-Coastal Region:
Telephone: 031 274 1150
Fax: 031 205 1547

Now let me get out of here.

Good luck to all Sharks and Bulls (never thought I would be wishing the Bulls any luck) supporters this weekend.

No worries JD, I'm sure as long as theres no sign up at a venue, you could net in any river and plead ignorince if the p/board harass you.

Excellent GOJ - thanks for this man... yup, learn something new EVERY day! The Cast Net license is actually just an endorsement to the Anglers license, same as mud Prawn license and mollusc license - with so little info on it, I doubt even if Joe Soap KZN Parks board officer is even aware of this!!

You know thats what i love about SEALINE,you learn something new everyday.I have been wanting to learn how to use a cast net for a while now,and have never really gone out and found out the finer details.This post has helped me realise that i have to get all the necessary info before i go and just purchase a licence.

@Khani i think that is a great idea you can definately count me in.Why dont we have some sugestions as to when the guy's would be interested in going,Hopefully JD could lend a hand in updateing us with conditions etc etc....

This would help us to decide when i think.You know i have been to TMR a few times now and every time i leave i want to go back.In my opinion Tugela is still one of the jewls of our coast.I have seen some of the monsters that have been landed there and i for one would like the next one to be mine,So guy's count me in anytime...

Cheers Riymos

It sounds great and Sealine is welcome here anytime.

I will be updating fishing reports every Wednesday so that it gives everyone enough time to plan a trip if they so wish to. Once you guys are ready give me a ball park figure of the amount of guys and more or less then you guys plan to make this happen.

I will do what I can from our side to hopefully make it a memorable weekend.

Hey Riymos

I have 3 more guys interested in going, only problem is that the FA Cup final is on Saturday. Do you know if TMR has DSTV so that we can watch the game before we start fishing? If not then we will only be there after the game.
