It has been another bumper week of fishing in KZN. Anglers have experienced a variety of fish species, offering a mere taste of what’s to come as we approach the end of summer. Edible bait is becoming more prevalent, while sharks are finally giving offshore anglers a fighting chance. As for freshwater, trout fishing appears to be hot this week.


The recent Couta Classic Fishing Tournament saw a lot of decent Couta caught, along with a mix of other gamefish.

Summer fishing is starting to give way to early winter. This means switching to smaller, more natural-looking bait rigs and focusing on bait presentation over size.


The dams and rivers are fishing well. Bass are still the most popular catch, but trout are making their presence felt and carp anglers are having success as well.
