Deep Sea KZN South Coast
Port Shepstone is a fabulous fishing area known for it’s wide range of potential catches. It has varied conditions, mostly mild – and each season brings it’s own set of fish species to target.
Summer – billfish come through from November into February and then make another appearance in April/May. Dorado, king and queen mackeral, queenfish, kingfish, tuna, bonito…take our carefully prepared strip baits, live baits and lures.
Winter – salmon and garrick dominate winter months along the backline and shallower areas, whilst yellow fin tuna generally go up in size through the winter months. Yellowtail and Amberjack stay out on the deep reefs most of the time, but can be encountered shallower.
Our fishing system for the Port Shepstone area involves looking for live bait and getting the livies to wherever the fishing is. Live baiting is generally the most exciting and productive and they can be caught on yozuri style jigs, spoons and dropshots and trolling small rapalas and feathers. To compliment our live bait methodology, we use the MYDO range of Baitswimmers, Spoons and Luck Shot heads to ensure we work all the available water column. If the gamefishing is slow, anchoring and fishing light tackle for rockod, soldiers, slingers and the like is so much fun!
