South Coast Tussle
The waters off the South Coast of Kwazulu Natal provide rich pickings as the migrating game fish arrive. Host Mark De La Hey with skipper PJ Botha target the Yellowfin Tuna to be found around the local wrecks, but although their jigs and live baits prove to be successful, their efforts attract the interest of some hungry sharks. By keeping on the move, they are finally rewarded.
The Zulu Kingdom
The changeable microclimate around Richards Bay means that Mark De La Hey has to change plans, but fortunately there is enough sheltered water to provide a day's entertainment, surface lures and poppers attract the Yellowfin Tuna and then with live bait he targets Garrick. But as the winds strengthen he has to head inland to Midmar Dam for a spot of bass fishing.
In the last few years the number of Yellowfin Tuna to be found in the waters off South East Africa has grown enormously, which is good news for Mark De La Hey, as he likes to catch them and then eat them. Here he shows 3 different techniques and styles of fishing that can be used.
Rock and Roll
As the large swells in January & February churn up the waters at Mtunzini, South Africa, it creates great conditions for rock and surf fishing from the beach. Mark De La Hey and friends offer up some great tips and advice on how to use fresh deadbait to catch large flatfish such as Brown Skate, Sand Shark or Diamond Rays.
Mark and the guys are in Mozambique where the annual migration of black marlin to their spawning grounds brings in many other apex predators. In this episode, Mark is targetting big sharks and soon finds a grey shark before getting into a huge hammerhead. Maintaining a good supply of live bait is crucial to keeping the action going, especially when you have several large Zambezi (Bull) sharks around the boat. Later in the show, Mark targets sharks from the shore and discusses techniques to hook and land them.
Mark discusses the importance of maximising fishing activity in weather windows as he heads out from Shelly Beach in changeable conditions. Despite the high winds, the guys use the sonar to find fish and then by using a burly trail, drift over them hooking into some nice yellowfin tuna before Mark catches a fantastic Green Jobfish. After returning to shore they head up to Durban making an early start as they head out again using livebait to tempt some bigger fish.
