Hi all

Im coming down to Umlangha soon and would like to find out besides some sea fishing which i will be trying for the first time are there any bass venues in that area that one can fish from the bank?

Hi Riaan, if you have small kids then you may want to go a little bit further North to Umhdolti because they have nice sea pool for the kids and there are some nice spots on the surrounding rocks to fish and would be ideal for a bass rod size? I find that squid is a good bait to use in the sea because it?s tough and stays on the hooks better? and sardine stinks? but I see the sea fisherman are starting to play with lures now and I bumped into a chap in my local tackle shop that was buying Berkeley lures for the sea? I have also fished for bait fish (when deep sea fishing they stop on a reef to catch smallies as live bait) with little hooks with a few pieces of feathers attached to them and for some strange reason the bait fish go for the hooks?

OK bass fishing from the side? now this is not as easy? both the private dams I fish on the side from are difficult to get permission for? I will be really interested to hear from the experienced boy here in KZN because I?m interested as well. You can of course fish from the side at Inanda? it?s not ideal but before I got my boat I fished there and caught bass.

Come on KZN boys? where can Riaan fish from the side in Durbs?

Riaan give me a call when you get down and maybe you can join us one Saturday morning on my boat on Inanda.

Thanks Robfisher

The fishing with Berkley plastics is a new craze called drop shot fishing. The local tackle dealer up here suggested I try it as it produces some good fish. When I come down I will definitely give you a shout

I live down the south coast and there is only one dam i know of that you can fish from the edges... Unfortunately, if u not a member, u have to pay to fish. There are also some boats and paddle ski's u can hire.... It is a bit of a trek from Umhlanga, but it is safe. Especially if u have small kids... Let me know if you want to go... we can make a plan to bet together.....

Hi Riaan, I haven?t heard of it before? but I found two web sites that take bookings for it? I?m not sure how up-to-date the info is? but if their spiel is anything to go by then you may just catch a fish or two there? I?m surprised we haven?t heard about it before?

Fishing -- Some of the best bass fishing in this part of the country! ? The visitors? book testifies of catches of up to 200 in one weekend. The beautiful dam covers some 8 acres and only catch-and-release is allowed. Guests have use of a small row boat on the dam.
