Where and When to Fish
Richards Bay
South, Short and North Pier. This is extreme fishing weather and expect to find some more Santers/Reds/Soldiers in the Harbor and from the Piers. Santers seek saf haven in protected deep water bay's when storms are brooding over the deeper water. The are  small to medium size and a bottom trace line is needed with no. 2 kennel round hooks. Will take Squid and Pink Prawn. Get your bait en route from The Fish Zone in Davidson lane. They have good quality fresh bait at competitive prices.


St. Estuary
Changing wind directions and weather patterns is an excellent time to fish. Also adding to these favorable conditions is the fact that it is only three days after Full moon. With high tides early in the morning and late afternoon it compounds to these excellent conditions.  With the wind pushing from South and water flowing down the iMfolozi River one would visit the  Northern fishing spots at St. Lucia. Starting from the new beach all the way past marker no.4, The slides to First Rocks. Expected catches will be Salmon, cock Grunter, Pompano and spotted Grunter. Take a variety of bait and remember live bait will render more results. Get your mole crabs, buy some prawn and fresh sardine. Baby Squid should also be included.

Cape Vidal
Cape Vidal South and North of the bay. The N4 board all around to the light house will produce fish and medium to heavy Rock and Surf Tackle is needed. Small Carentee and Garfish from the bay will supplement your bait box. Remember no bait from the rocks north of the N4 sign.

Keep on Fishing - only take what you eat above the legal size and bag limit. Do not break bear bottles and clean up our beautiful places when done enjoying your self.
