KZN Fishing Report Jan 2021 – the water is cleaning up!

KZN Fishing Report Jan 2021: Jonno and his Croc - officially the first couta of the 2021 Season

KZN Fishing Report Jan 2021 – the water is cleaning up!

KZN Fishing Report Jan 2021: It’s been a helluva end to any form of drought in this country after this rainy season!

And the plumes of stormwater runoff and erosion laden water have been extending for many miles up and down the KZN Natal coastline. And straight to sea. Luckily, this is a natural event that has been occurring since whenever and is vital to the balancing out od the oceans acidity levels. The runoff water carrying all that good stuff, is alkaline enough to do this vital job, every wet season each year.

Estuaries

The Sardine crew are the Umzimkulu Marina at the moment. And this is hard work, trying to catch gamefish, in such opaque water. Mostly by far, it is not pollution, but a pigment in the water, that comes from the mountains in the main catchment area. Its the same pigment that gives the Orange River its name. The two rivers start in the same area up top of the mountains somewhere. One goes south, one goes west. Same colour!

KZN Fishing Report Jan 2021

The water is also flowing strong and sometimes it is difficult making headway, after strong rains! And it takes a good week or so, to slow down.

However, this onslaught of freshwater doesn’t affect the bait much. Prawns and mullet can still be netted easily enough. And we did catch this very nice perch. On a live prawn. In the Umzimkulu. It was healthily released by Marco and his two kids, aboard Sick Day. In the brown, up at the big hole. Check the dense brown flowing water behind Marco jnr.

Eels and barbels, and of course huge mangrove crabs, love this water. Some eels are a metre long!

As do turtles! They swim right up into the estuaries to rid themselves of fresh water intolerant parasites. We have been seeing a bunch since we have gone stealth mode with electrics. And a no-wake zone has been re-established to stop the all-too-often collisions with marine animals using the estuary.

The following three rock salmon were hard won in extreme conditions. Way down south, in secret locations! These guys fish all night when they go. Putting in many, many hours. Being beaten by many, many, large, large fish. Until finally it all comes together like these three trophy fish. ALL released to fight another day. These fish have just about reached sexual maturity. After some more time in the estuary, they will get restless, and head on out to sea. To the deep blue up north. To meet up and spawn with the rest of them.

Rock n Surf

All about the brown water again. But, wherever its blue, the spearos have been getting out there and klapping it. So we know that the fish are there, and also just have to follow the blue water, like the spearos do – all their lives.

KZN Fishing Report Jan 2021
Tough conditions!

Difficult to work in these conditions. But the fish ARE there and we just have to work harder, and use smellier or more lively baits!

Other than a few giant kob being caught in secret that I know about, and a few garrick, it has been tough.

I saw a photo of an African Pompano caught off the piers at Durban.

Shad very sporadic and inconsistent.

Deep-sea

Dorado. Couta. Tuna. Yellowtail. And marlin!

Along the edge of the brown plume, a distinct line forms, and this attracts a lot of attention. There are boats having a fine time up and down this coastline, when weather permits. Every few days only! The winds have been busting all out all season. Along with the rain. Lightning. And thunder!

An amazing catch…

These two couta were actually taken on the 27th of November, in 2020! Making them the first two fish of the 2021 season by far! I wonder if anyone will ever catch another one (or two) before this date next year. I think we should offer a prize each year! And then I’ll try my best to win it myself ha ha. But with such good anglers on the water these days, it could be anyone’s next year (or this year still!).

Spearfishing

Well when you can dive down to 50m holding your breath, then you deserve every fish you shoot. This is Master Don Solomon and his mate Stephen Fraiser with some well-earned fish. These were all very recent when diving very deep to escape the brown has been an only option. Do NOT try this at home! Thank you to The Bear from The Master Matermen and Top Man, for the images.

KZN Fishing Report Jan 2021

Summary

So ok, we have just gotten through the worst of the brown water blues, and are flying through January as fast as possible, so we can then get through February, and into the good times. Sometimes it cleans up before, and then floods again, over and over. But by March it is plain sailing.

Fishing is our heritage – take a kid fishing!

Mackenzie Nel and her trophy catch and release GT in the Umzimkulu

Fishing is our heritage – take a kid fishing!

If fishing is our heritage, then best we take the kids fishing!

Because this might happen…this very past weekend!

Little Mackenzie promises that she will never, ever, stop chasing GTs.

But the real shout out goes to Mackenzies grand dad Mr. Ant Nel, from Port Edward. For taking the time to take his grand daughter out on the water. Preparing and launching his stealth cruiser. For tying on her little green fluke. And steering her in the right direction. And for taking such an amazing video. That has me on the edge of my seat every time I watch it through. And for taking that incredibly cool photograph! And then for letting the trophy fish go back.

The video features Granddad coaching and guiding Mackenzie along as she grapples with this bad-mannered GT. At one point there is the inevitable tangle as the live bait rods got mixed up with the head shaking kingfish. And the video dips out a while. The blank screen with audio makes for a thriller movie type scene.

The fish might have gone 5 or 6kgs or more and put up a great fight. Mackenzie was huffing and puffing before she got the GT to the net and into the boat.

Where it was quickly photographed, and set free again.

Granddad has instilled conservation ethics in young Mackenzie right from the word go. The fish swam off irritated but spirited and having learnt not to pick on little girls!

And so with an inspirational story like that, take ’em fishing!

If fishing is our heritage, take 'em fishing!

Shimano Curado XG reviewed by Divan Coetzee

Divan Coetzee has no qualms with the Shimano Curado XG

Shimano Curado XG reviewed by Divan Coetzee

By: Divan Coetzee

Divan Coetzee gets to grips with the popular Shimano Curado XG. With its wider spool for more capacity and versatility. Take it anywhere!

‘I’ve never been a fan of any 200 size baitcaster, the logic behind my disdain is simple. Personally, I have very little use for a 200 size spool, the exception being larger paddletails and swimbaits, that’s where it ends for me. Allow me explain… a 200 spool has a width of approximately 27mm, the average 150 spool measures about 23mm. If you think that 4mm doesn’t make that much of a difference, you are very wrong! It has a profound effect on casting, particularly lighter baits. If the line guide sits in either corner of the frame during a cast, due to the spool width, the line comes off the reel at oblique angles which causes unnecessary and unanticipated friction, which results in an overwind on an otherwise perfect cast, hence the fact that I’ve only used them for heavier applications.

Johan has been asking me to do a review for sometime now, I’ve been putting it off for awhile whilst waiting for an opportunity to put it to work. The idea was to actually catch a few good ones, and not just cast baits all day. The Mrs and I headed off to some private water East of Middelburg, I took only the one setup to force myself to fish the reel all day without the temptation of my other setups.

The XG model has a ratio of 8.5:1 and has a line pickup of 91cm – its fast! Generally, reels with high ratios typically lack torque, but the micro module gear seems to alleviate the issue, to the point that I’d be happy to use the 7 ratio for cranking. The XG only kicks out 11lbs of drag, it’s still sufficient though.

The venue we fished offers a 2kg average, so I spooled up with 17lb fluoro, not conducive to good casting, but I wasn’t going to make easy for the reel to pass the review. It would most certainly perform better with a thinner diameter fluorocarbon or even braid. That being said, it would be silly to spool 12lb on 200 model. That’s what the 150’s and 70’s are for. I left the VBS braking system and external cast control on 50% as per factory setting, and just played around with the spool tension knob relative to the bait I was casting. The reel had no problem casting spinnerbaits, jigs and chatterbaits, it did not enjoy the lighter stuff at all… perhaps with some fiddling it could be better, but not to the point where it would be able to substitute 150’s.

The torque ratio caught me off guard, I did not expect the reel to be a winch, but I pulled several 2kg plus fish to the point that I felt sorry for them. This reel is a well engineered machine, every Shimano fan should have one! They come in 3 different ratios along with the DC model.’

Sep 2020 Bass update by Divan Coetzee

Divan Coetzee Largemouth Bass

Sep 2020 Bass update by Divan Coetzee

Sep 2020 Bass update by Divan Coetzee: This has been the first proper winter we’ve had in a decade. Normally around this time, Loskop and Roodekoppies would be past their prime. Rusties, Arabie and De Hoop would be on. And Witbank, Bronkies, Middleburg would be in the pre-spawn/spawning stage. 

The old folks knew best when they said: “You can’t catch a blerrie fish during months that don’t have an ‘R’ in it” (sic). I’m beginning to think they were onto something… we’ve been spoiled with the Indian summers of late, being able to target certain species throughout the year was a privilege. The seasons seem to be back in sync, the August winds were on time and hopefully the first rains will also comply. So effectively, everything is delayed by about a month. 

Johan Wessels in the news again. This time a healthy bass!
Johan Wessels in the news again. This time a healthy bass!

Good catches are reported here and there, but the majority of the fish are still deep and staging. If the weather remains stable, fishing would improve drastically as the big females start to move shallow. It is of great importance to take care of the big brood stock females. Take your picture, put her back! With the respect and dignity she deserves! Avoid boxing fish to take pictures later.

Sardines at Scottburgh

Sardines at Scottburgh

Sardines at Scottburgh

For the second day in a row, there are loads of sardines being netted at Scottburgh main beach, down in southern KZN.

The beaches close by too. Pennington and Rocky Bay have seen plenty action too. Sharks in the shorebreak! Huge lazy sharks swimming slowly along scraping their stomaches on the sand they are so full.

This is our most recent official report, as put out by OJ Communications and UGU Tourism, and is illustrated beautifully by images from the air.

Click on the above link for a full sardine report.

This excerpt from the report above explains the perspectives that were achieved by Noel McDonogh from WOW Flight School…

“We’ve had great weather today with spectacular visibility in all directions,” said Noel McDonogh, pilot at World of Wings Flight School, who has been busy taking magnificent aerial shots of the Sardine Run activity. “We’ve spotted sardine shoals off Scottburgh’s Back Beach with many sharks trailing the fish, and whales breaching between Clansthal and Aliwal Shoal. There have been bull sharks, more than 3 metres in length, spotted among the fish; and a southern right whale seen just one kilometre off the Scottburgh beachfront.”

Right, so, there are more sardines at Scottburgh, being netted, right as I write this!

And the other beaches that have had sardine traffic through this year already, or are hotspots proven from seasons gone by are;

  • Port Edward
  • Ramsgate and Ski-boat Bay
  • Margate
  • St. Michaels
  • The SandSpit
  • Banana Beach/Pumula/Umzumbe
  • Pennington/Rocky Bay/Scotties
  • Umgababa

These spots all have easy access for netters and the public too.

We will keep reporting on the sardines at Scottburgh and surrounds. This is just the very start of the sardine run 2020 and it would be a great time to hit the coast right now!

Bring your shad stuff, and a bigger outfit for your live mullet or shad as the garrick and kob and other gamefish join the sharks and inedibles as they herd shoal after shoal away from the main body of sardines, into the shorebreak. Where we can get at them!

News from Zambia: Tigerfish Lockdown 2020

7kg tiger fish in Zambian Waters with FPS

News from Zambia: Tigerfish Lockdown 2020

Whilst I sit in Pretoria in Level Three limbo, barely surviving this incredibly brutal cold front – my colleagues in Zambia, at Gwabi River Lodge, are really rubbing salt into my wounds. Compounding my misery with pictures of incredible TigerFish caught over the weekend.” – by Mark Taylor-Memmory

Sunday 14th June 2020

Punctuated with needling comments like –

“Wish you were here,”

“Its 24 degrees Celsius,”

“Our cooler box is nearly empty,”

“You should have seen the monster Alan dropped by the side of the boat,”

And my personal favourite…

“That plus minus 2.5 kg gave me such a rev and then jumped and spat the hook!”

Three good size fish came out at the confluence of the Zambezi River and the Kafue river.

A 5.6 kg, 4.5kg and a 3.8kg.

It was a warm sunny day and not very windy, and when the Tiger did come on the bite.

They were serious!

But the man who get the accolade of “Give that man a Bells” is Muwinga.

One of our guides who took a client 20kms up the Kafue River in search of the Big one.

His gamble paid off and after a few hours of painstakingly fishing his area,

Success came to him in the form of a 7 kg beaut of a tiger fish.

A mature female Tiger Fish  who had been around the block a few times and evaded us all.

For this time of the year, these were incredible results for the day.

All four fish highlighted in my story ,were all successfully released for fellow fisherman to enjoy for another day.

The modest lockdown imposed by the Zambian and Zimbabwean Governments, for a month at best  certainly took a bit of pressure off the river and it was heart-warming to share in the good fortunes of the Fishermen, albeit with a slight streak of jealousy.

Having said that, as soon as Cyril pushes the green button for us to travel again, I hope to be at the front of the queue, trying to get a flight to Lusaka.

Stay safe everyone and see you on the River

Cheers

Sardines! It’s on – the Sardine Run 2020 has started

Sardine Run 2020 (c) Justin Klusener

Sardines! It’s on – the Sardine Run 2020 has started

Sardines! Sardines!

Up and down the KZN South Coast the cry can be heard reverberating down through the river valleys and out onto the beaches. Thank Goodness the Level 3 Lockdown status came about on the very same day the sardines hit the beaches. And the bottle stores opened!

It’s like a public holiday down on the coast right now!

People are trying their best to stay within the confusing set of rules as laid out by government. Some are allowed to fish. Others are not. The stories keep changing too. And the Gazette is actually a Gazelle as we all try catch up with it as it tears away further each day in fright. Speeches and convoluted statements will have to do for now. And most of them turn out to be fake.

Who do we believe?!

But ok, we are chasing sardines, and in amongst the excited shoals are the sharks and other monsters we are all so entralled with.

The smart people in charge of attracting tourism to the KZN South Coast have jumped ahead and produced the first Sardine Report of 2020. They have teamed up with the formidable crew at OJ Communications and camera legend Justin Klusener – to bring you all the fantastic news – that the Sardine Run 2020 – is well started, and looks to be a cracker. One haul was reported in at 1000 crates!? This is unverified but entirely possible.

At R1500 per crate, somebody is making money right now. But same as last year and the years before, by the time it’s September and the last shoals are still pouring through, the sardine become basically free. The most profit any of us can have right now is getting in amongst it and fighting those sharks off for a few baskets full of your very own sardines.

To admire, eat or use as bait.

The first Sardine Report 2020 is at this link…

New Shimano Stella is out!

SHIMANO STELLA SW 8000 HGC

New Shimano Stella is out!

The new Shimano Stella is out and available from the Fishing Pro Shop.

Announcement

“All the new stellas are now available in SA, we will have the range in store end of next week…

Pricing to follow on web by Wednesday and also huge specials on previous models.” – Divan Coetzee

Check out the following video by Shimano, featuring some epic material with monster bluefin tuna underwater and on the end of the line. There are many shots in the video that highlight that one super smooth attribute the Shimano Stella SW series has – that super smooth and over strong drag. Not once does the drag stick, and you can notice tiny increments of line being pulled at the exact right moments. The drag really takes things up another level helping compensate for those unruly seas and jerky skippers we sometimes have to deal with when chasing trophy gamefish.

Versatility is the name of the game at this level as you might need to cast a hundred metres to a boiling tuna, or drop a 6 ounce jig to the depths as you guage for that dogtooth that you just know is down there.

And, you can even take a Shimano Stella to the ultimate gunfight – a showdown with a billfish. Marlin included. The truth us, that these reels are so over-geared and over-engineered, that they can take punishment that was unimaginable before.

Like the blistering first run of an angry blue marlin. For rea…the guys over at FishBazaruto took a Shimano Stella or two to the Cape Verde blue marlin bite a few seasons back. Renowned billfish angler Carl Jankowitz went ahead with his bait and switch technique which worked flawlessly as they dropped back in complete confidence with the wide-open spool. Then all Carl had to do was close the bail and settle in for the fight of his life! A blue marlin on a coffee grinder! Full story can be read right here…

But mainly, you are going to invest in a Shimano Stella for those bad-mannered GTs, amberjack, and tuna. Like the doggie. The bluefin. The big-eye. The yellowfin. When these fish get over the 50kg mark, it would be best, if you were touting a Shimano Stella. And don’t forget those yellowtail down Hibberdene way!

SANTA MARIA 2020: BY CHARLES STEWART

Charles Stewart with his Santa Maria wahoo

SANTA MARIA 2020: BY CHARLES STEWART

Our yearly trip to Santa Maria got off to an eventful start when we launched at Club Navale in Maputo. During the December holiday the Triton had developed a problem with the steering system and this had been sorted out by the agents. After launching however, Stefan immediately realized that there was a problem. When steering Left, the boat turned right, and vice versa. We thought that we might have to go back in, but then noticed that the hydraulic tubes going into the cylinder had been connected in the wrong around. Fortunately we could change the pipes around, bleed the system and get on our way.

On our first day out, there were amazing shoals of baitfish. Eastern Little Tuna (also known as Jub-Jub’s) where everywhere… as well as Torpedo Scads and Rainbow Runners. We quickly caught a number of live baits and spent the next few hours swimming various live baits at different levels without success. The absence of big fish surprised us and we eventually called it a day.

We had heard that one of the other boats had been quite far South the previous day with some success. Traveling South the next day we didn’t  see any birds working and hoped we had made the right decision. The sea was beautiful, but we encountered no baitfish. We opted  to spend some time trolling and it wasn’t long before I had a strike on the Speed pro. A few minutes later we had a sleek Wahoo at the boat. A little while later, Stefan had a hookup and the fish took line at rapid rate. It was another nice Wahoo, bigger than the first one. We spent some time jigging the various drop offs in the area without much success.

The next morning, there was a light breeze and lots of birds around. They weren’t feeding, and like us they were looking for fish activity. At one point we found some birds working and decided to cast some spoons into the activity. Stefan had opted to throw a jerk shad minnow on a bucktail jig. The next minute he had a pickup and from the hookup I could see that this was a proper fish. The fish took about 200m on the light spinning outfit and then sounded. After about 20 minutes the fish was no nearer the boat and we had to encourage him not to apply too much pressure. Eventually the fish started to tire and he was able to lift him slowly. After about 45 minutes he had the fish at the boat, It was a beautiful Yellow fin Tuna of 18kg. We continued with the spoons and awhile later, after seeing no more activity, we decided to move to one of the jigging spots. On my third drop I hooked a fish that fought with a jerky, erratic motion. When I got it to the surface, I saw that it was a Rainbow runner. To me, this is one of the finest table fish in the sea and in my hurry to boat him, the hooks pulled through the fishes soft mouth and he was gone. Fortunately, a few drops later, Leon also hooked one which we boated and our delicious supper was secured.

We were out again early the next morning, but there seemed to be very little activity. There were a lot of small Couta close inshore, but we decided not to fish for them. Whilst travelling to one of the jigging reefs, Leon spotted something floating on the surface. When we got closer, we saw that it was a plastic bucket and there seemed to be some activity around it. Leon made a cast with the spoon and hooked  up immediately. We were surprised to see that it was a Triple tail (Lebotes). Finding this species far offshore was strange as usually they are found in and around Estuary and river mouths.

We caught some baitfish the next morning, but after some time decided to head to one of the jigging reefs. Last year jigging at this reef I got a GT of some 25kg plus, and we were hopeful to repeat. On about my tenth drop, I hooked a strong fish in about 40m of water. The fish ate the jig about 15m off the bottom, and I was determined to keep him away from the reef. For a few minutes, he would take a couple meters, and I would slowly win it back… all of a sudden, the fish took off running and pulled drag! Knowing that I would have to stop the fish, I jammed the spool and 50lb Japanese quality braid parted. That was a fish I would have loved to see.

The next day we spent time trolling for Marlin over the 400m to 500m mark without success. The next two days, not from a fishing perspective, were rather eventful! But that is a story for another time!

Azuma Timmy Horton Z Boss Crankbait by FPS

Azuma

Designed by one of the most featured crankbait guys of all time and B.A.S.S Angler of the Year, Timmy Horton, the Azuma Timmy Horton Z Boss Crankbaits deliver cutting edge performance that took over two years of testing and developing to perfect. Built with a hydrodynamic profile, the Azuma Timy Horton Z Boss Crankbaits are shaped like a sports car, which reduces drag and generates a quicker drop that allows anglers to deep crank all day with little fatigue unlike other hard pulling crankbaits. The identifying shape of the Azuma Timy Horton Z Boss Crankbaits also produces a tighter wobbling action, which triggers more bites from lure shy fish that have grown wary to loud, hard thumping crankbaits. 

Fitted with an advanced weight transfer system, the Azuma Timmy Horton Z Boss Crankbaits deliver extended casting distances that ensure maximum time spent in the strike zone. They are also armed with a pair of razor-sharp treble hooks attached with premium split rings, providing an improved hook up and landing ratio. Available in a selection of Timmy’s favourite colours, the Azuma Timmy Horton Z Boss Crankbaits provide a forward-thinking design that outperforms the rest of the crankbaits in your tackle box.  

The Z-Boss 20 Crankbait is what Timmy Horton used to set the Major League Fishing all-time single day catch record of 88lbs 10oz.

Pop into the Fishing Pro Shop at 5 Graeme Rd for anything bass that you might need to know. Resident pro-basser Divan Coetzee, and colleagues, are on hand and waiting to assist you with any challenges you may be facing with your bass fishing.
