Marlin off Margate Pier

Marlin off Margate Pier

Yep, it’s true…a Marlin from off Margate Pier.

But there is no truth to the rumour that many okes from inland were throwing konas from the pier today!

Although a very small fish, it is still a most noteworthy catch for a rock n surf angler.

The fish was tempted to nibble on a slide bait offered from off the pier. With a shad thereon.

Margate Pier was refurbished a while back and is most certainly one of the hottest surf fishing spots on the southern KZN coastline.

The release of such a fish is nigh impossible, although the extremely far casting angler did try. It was hooked in the gills with a treble. But even so. A noteworthy catch that really now puts Margate on the map for kona surf fishing!

The first and probably the last Marlin off Margate Pier.
