Cool bro.........

I was going to do that but everyone you ask there about how far the ledges are, most of them said about 2km, so that puts you off straight away:(

By the way the bay you talking about is where the boats launch am i right

Hey Kingfish...

Moenie panik nie.

If you want your Kingie, you'll get it!

If you can wait, the sardine run in July down the south coast is a good bet.

Follow the reports, when they hit mid to lower south coast, book in to a place, somewhere around Turton for a week, and follow the sards. When you get them, use the Jig 'n Drop method. You WILL get one or a few sharks etc. (Or use a big red and white plug/popper).

If you can't wait that long, head up to Maputoland now (Jan to Apr is best Kingie season) and use your No.12 Fly rod (or normal tackle with live bait, poppers), at places like Kosi, Mabibi (Sibaya camping spot right at the north end of the Sodwana reserve area), Rocktail Bay etc.

If none of these options suit you, then fish South Pier to Cave Rock area with live Shad every day that you can, weather permitting) and you'll get one of the big Kingies that have been coming out now and then.

PERSEVERENCE!

Cheers

Mick

I agree, perseverance be the key to all success..... damn, me sounding like Dr Phillip now ::H

Yea Kingfish, MickJack be right. The sard run be an excellent place to try land a King. Although I also know a guy that can help you out with that dream. He does Mozambique trips to Milibangala. We both fished the area extensively before he started and 4 + years later its still pumping. Regular Kings above 25kg are caught and released almost every trip. PM me if you intrested.

Hey Volcom,

I am interested in this guy that does trips to Milli. Please supply some info and contact details.

Maybe some of our members can get together and make a trip.
