Hi All

Please could I have your views (or better the facts) regards using live bait at Zandvlei. I'm very conservation minded and would not kill/remove a leerie ever - I mainly spin, but when using live bait (in other locations) I always use circle hooks to avoid gut hooking etc.

I understand that no gill net use is permitted - so any livie from Zandvlei would have to be line-caught (or more likely they'd be throw netted from elsewhere).

In discussions with some locals I've had conflicting views on using live bait BUT the local fishing tackle shops insist that live bait use is permissible, if obtained in the manner above.

Please can i have confirmation/thoughts on the facts of the law (or bye-laws probably more applicable) in this case?

Many thanks
