Hi Poenskop,

I know there is a caravan park near the mouth of the river, I can give you a no (need to find it) for a guy, Peter Sumption, who will be able to help you with info, bait etc.

Will post it later when I get home.

Sure, no problem.

Would love to be there, but I've got an assignment due next week for the diploma I'm doing and I need the full weekend to get it sorted or I'm in deep k*k.

Hi Poenskop,

I found that no for you: 040 678 1032 / 082 259 1225 ask for either Peter or Lee.
Alternatively I have an e-mail address: sumpies@telkomsa.net
Peter is very knowledgable and should be able to help you with most of your queries.

I would advise to take your own chokka, ocky legs with you as that sort of stuff is scarce down there. Peter stocks sards and prawns as far as I remember.

Also be advised there are no shops there, so take what you need, you can get very basics such as bread and milk as well as SAB beer, but that's about it.

The river produces good grunter on swimming prawn, esp. if they're live. Try for Kob at night using a mixed grill, worked very well for me. :D
Try slide big baits off the main beach near the mouth for Raggies.

There are mullet in the river, look for a meander near the caravan park, thats a good place to throw for mullet. Just be careful where you store them overnight as our live bait bucket got nicked and there are "lice" in the river that make short work of mullet.

Hope that helps.

Another person who can be of much help about Hamburg is Roy Martin.  He has been a participant in the ORI and PE Museum Cooperative Tagging Programmes for raggies.  These programmes have been in operation since 1984.  (Check 2006 May Tight Lines, page 20).  I fished with him once in Hamburg, he is a fabulous oke and has lots of info to share.  His number is as ff: 043-743 5470 cel 0842502048.
