Rocktail Bay Fishing

Whether your are an artificial lure fishing enthusiast, a fly fisherman or a papgooier, you will find good fishing at Rocktail Bay, Black Rock, and Bhanga Nek. There is a whole list of game fish that move up and down the coast and vast areas of offshore reef, home to bottom fish which come inshore to feed.

The secret to a good Rocktail Bay fishing trip is to be prepared with the correct tackle and bait. Here is a basic list of fishing tackle which you need for in your tackle box.

Strong monofilament / braid - min 30kg breaking strain
Steel trace - min 26 kg
Pliers & Split ring pliers
Assorted hooks, swivels and split rings
Bait board, Knife and cotton
Fluorocarbon leader
Live bait non return clips for sliding livies - bring a few!
Small hooks and thin monofilament for catching live bait
Live bait bucket with air pump for maximum pleasure
Grapnel sinkers for fishing over sand
Assorted sinkers for fishing off the rocks
Plugs and Spoons for early and late fishing sessions
Rod holders to use several fishing rods at once
A rod bucket for those big Kingies!
Sunscreen, hat, Long sleeves
Very Important - Bring good, completely closed, long fishing boots - the rocks are SHARP.

Tips:

Some of the roads have low overhanging branches which break rod tips off. When tying rods onto the roof, point the tips backwards to avoid damage to your rods.

Good bait - Crayfish, Red bait, ghost crab, mole crab, live anything

Rocktail Bay fishing accommodation



Rocktail Bay


Our accommodation at Rocktail bay is situated perfectly to use as a base to explore the northern Maputaland Coast. The closest beach to our accommodation is Rocktail Bay, a place which is famous for its excellent fishing, beautiful forests and endless beaches.

The southern tip of Rocktail Bay consists of a flat sandstone reef which is exposed over low tide. Bait fish shelter in the bay behind the point, attracting a large variety of game fish and other predatory species such as snapper and rock cod. Giant Kingfish are common here and one can often see them swimming in small shoals, hunting in the shallows. Rocktail bay is well known for excellent catches of big fish on artificial lures, live bait and on fly, you just have to get there!

On the map, Rocktail Bay lies between Lala Nek and Black Rock, also beautiful beaches and excellent fishing spots. Our accommodation is within a short drive of other famous fishing places, such as Black Rock, a little piece of paradise where huge Kingfish are regularly hooked, some landed.


Black Rock

Only 6km from our accommodation, Black Rock is easily accessible and perfect for a day trip, fishing, surfing or just enjoying the beach. Black Rock is a large sandstone point jutting into the ocean, its black colour caused by black algal growth on the surface of the rock. Black rock is the furthest point visible from Rocktail Bay.

Black Rock is a good spot for days when the south westerly wind is blowing, offering protection on the northern side of the rock. Game fish come into the bay where shoals of Natal Moonies, Tropical Halfbeaks, sprats and shad attract game fish such as Kingfish and King Mackerel. At low tide, Black Rock is a good spot for light tackle, and better with heavier tackle when the tide is high. Black Rock is also a good place to get live bait.

Of all the good snorkeling spots accessible from our accommodation, Black rock is one of the safest and most sheltered. Low tide is the best time to snorkel at Black Rock. Be sure to take a tide table along, it is essential for planning your days.

Lala Nek

From our accommodation, Lala Nek is also easily accessible by 4x4. Lala Nek is a very good spot for snorkeling and fishing and there is a lovely shady picnic site at the parking area just a short walk from beach. Look out for the Gold Banded  Forester in the picnic site, they are a rare butterfly, but we see them there often.
