Fishing the Umzimkulu River off Spiller’s Wharf yesterday afternoon, local angler Ahmed, pictured, hooked into a beautiful Leopard Ray. It took him a solid 10 minutes on ultra-light tackle.
Fishing the Umzimkulu is made very comfortable at Spiller’s Wharf. There are a choice of restaurants – Bela’s Mozambican themed diner is most popular.
There is safe parking, grass, chairs and 50 meters of river frontage to choose your spot from. This night there were 11 rods in the water, catching grunter and perch.
It costs R20 per angler to fish on the premises.
Many species can be targeted. Catfish, kingfish, grunter, perch, eels, rays, oxeye tarpon, rockcod, shad, garrick, rock salmon and even sharks!
