Thread: Richardsbay

  1. #1

    Default Richardsbay

    Hey guys,

    I'm going to be in Richardsbay this weekend (driving up Saturday and back on Monday). I've read the threads and it looks like Pelican Island and the blind canal are the places to fish.

    Is this still the case? Any other recommendations?

    Where's the best place to park cars and is it safe to fish alone (and leave cars unattended)?

    Lastly, anyone here who wishes to join me?

    cheers,
    Warren

    Hi Warren

    Have not fished Richardsbay for a while, but I usually fish the area around Pelican Island. Never had any issues security wise there, but I only fish during daylight hours. There is usually some sort of activity there, i.e. runners or paddlers, etc.

    If you have access to a boat try the harbour area towards the mangroves.

    Had some luck on blue/chatreuse/white clousers there.

    Have fun.

    Cheers

    Richards Bay harbour can really cook, and you can get a huge variety of species, even skates on fly.

    I will be spending alot of time in richards bay over the next 6 months. Anyone have more info to add re fishing there. I stayed in the Protea hotel in the waterfont there the other day and could see lots of skates swimming around during high tide from my balcony over looking the small craft harbour. . Nice little sand bank forming there during low tide and also saw lots of chases. Not sure what it was, but are you allowed to fish in there?

    Also anyone have some contact to rent a 3 or 4 bedroom house in RB for six months?

    If you're fly fishing as though you are 'in a contest', and the only objective is to 'catch fish' - you are missing the point .... and that is disappointing

    Hi Morne.

    I am currently residing in Richards Bay so if you are in the area I can go show you some spots...

    I have not fished small craft myself, but there is a lot of mullet and Perch in front of the restaurants there, people feed them bread sometimes. You are allowed to fish there, but not off the quayside or on the docks. I like to fish more secluded areas though, give me a shout.

    Cheers,

    Konrad

    I will be around. I may not be available during weekdays as I will be working through December. But drop me a mail (sure you still have my details) then we can make a plan. The Brassy's are going to be wild by December!

    Thanks Konrad

    I was there yesterday, but was a quick one day trip in and out from CT. Will be back there from Saturday till Monday, but will also be a work trip and wont have much spare time. We should be starting our project in about two weeks time and will then spend some more time there. Did I mention we will have a large barge anchored just of the breakwater? ;-) Was eying that thing yesterday wondering where I can cast from. :-)
