Howzit

Stocked up on sars on sun. Will def still be there. We caught from the peer using a handline with treble hook and a hand net. Filled two buckets quick quick went home with plenty! People were netting from the beach and giving people. Not the largest sards but millions of them. I've wrapped and frozen mine.

We got two bakke of sards at the melkbos slip the other day, my bait is sorted for the season now.Man those things stay fresh for long, I had some for 3 days unfrozen in the cooler box, with icepacks and they were still firm and juicy.

Has anyone been getting action on these sardines? We all stocked up BUT...

I've only been out twice with them and blanked everytime. I've been hearing from a few people that they have not had any action on those sardines?

Anyone else?

On a side note, although great we getting the SARDS, it just shows that our waters are warming as they usually migrate to warmer waters followed by the whales, hence them being in durbs!

That along with the rain we are experiencing so late in December kind of makes me feel uneasy!

Not quite hey,

Sardines prefer cooler water and follows the plankton that they feed on in the cooler water. They move to Durban with the cooler current that shifts up the east coast every year round about June / July. The sardines will only beach if this cooler water is trapped against the shore by the warmer current.

Then again - I am no scientist, so I can be wrong.
