Fishing at Bazley, Ifafa Beach, Umdoni Coast, KwaZulu-Natal

Fishing at Bazely and Ifafa Beach, Umdoni Coast, KwaZulu Natal

Bazley Beach and Ifafa Beach are situated either side of the Fafa River on the Umdoni Coast, part of the South Coast of KwaZulu-Natal. Bazley is on the north of the river and Ifafa Bech on the south and both consist of a few houses and a caravan park.

The railway line runs right along the coastline and development has been restricted to the landward side of the line. You will need to cross the railway line by foot to get to any of the fishing spots, it is inadvisable to fish alone.

Bait and limited tackle are available at Bazley.

Fishing spots

Bazley has two rocky peninsulas that are excellent fishing sports. Tesingane Point to the north requires a bit of a walk and can be reached ambling along the beach or the railway line and the other is directly in front of the resort known as High Rocks. During summer the likely catches are flatfish and Natal stumpnose and during winter expect to catch shad (elf), kob and Garrick (leervis).

Ifafa Beach, just to the north is Station Bay and is fairly good spot for shad (elf) and small pan fish. McGee’s Pool, a tidal pool surrounded by rocks. Your likely catches are: Shad, Kob, Garrick (Leervis) and Flatfish.  From McGee’s Pool it is possible to swim a live bait out into the deeper waters of Station Bay, larger Garrick (leervis) and Kob are possible targets as they both take live bait. Ifafa Beach also yields a fair number of Shad and Kob during winter and Stumpnose during summer.
