My Daily commute to work, i see the netters hanging around Scottburgh, Pennington area, sort of like a midway point if they come out further North or South then its not a far drive. Nets were pulled at Winkle rocks and Toti rocks the weekend, also one or 2 nets further South.

Reports on FB was that a shoal was spotted in Bazley earlier. Close to shore.

How is this Sardine run comparing to previous ones? Looks very good from where I'm sitting in the Cape.

I would rate it as the best run in over a decade.


10 nets pulled on Sunday Pumula area, yesterday few more nets and today apparently Sards thick at the Illovo stretch.

The picture I posted with the columns in the foreground, the white water swirls in the shoal apparently were sharks.

It's the best run that I can actually remember... [suppose that's not a great recommendation...  :toppie: ] :rotfl
 but probably even 2 decades or so...  :dunno:

Small pockets  passing at Ifafa today. Whales just behind the back line. Shoals were getting eaten by some thing but couldn't see what. Probably sharks

Yep, if anyone follows Mick Clarke on FB, he gives updates throughout the day where and when it is happening.
