    Hi,

    You don't just pitch up at Kosi and get GT's, that's like expecting to win the lotto on you first ticket purchase. I am not trying to be negative, just helping you out as its not a easy task even for a very experienced angler. There are lots of other fish to bash though to keep you busy like the other kingfish species and numerous reef fish. If you want fish guaranteed, walk south from the car park at the mouth to the first fish kraals. There are lots of fish that to be added to the species list on light tackle(6wt is ideal) in those channels on a low tide, best is just as it starts pushing. Here you can fish any time of day, tides will be your only restriction.

    If you are looking for bigger fish then you need to spend your time in the surf near the mouth. But timing the tides plus sun rise and set is key for the best results, not easy if you stay outside of the park. Remember the water at Kosi is super clear and big predatory fish don't cruise about in shallow water with the sun high up. A night permit can be obtained if you want to fish into the night but it is not for the faint hearted, the Moz border is only a few kilos up the beach and the is a lot of foot traffic up and down bypassing the border post.

    Enjoy it!

    Hello

    At kosi mouth the best fishing is at night 2hours either side of high tide. You should fish rocktail bay and banga nek if you get a chance. Theres generally stuff there when kosi mouth is dead.
