Arthur reports that the sea fishing along the coast has been quite poor with a few small shad coming out and a few garrick in the 10 kg range at the Block in Port Shepstone being caught. However, recently there were two large pods of dolphins off Southport, about 200 meters off shore slowly moving south. There were also about 10 gannets diving on occasions. A few shad were also caught off the beach; the majority were undersize, but a few in the 35 cm range.

Regarding fresh water the club participated in the Matatiele Compo at Mountain Lake and by all accounts SCFA members did very well, taking the top 4 places, as well as the top ladies prize and one for the most fish caught. The winning fish, a rainbow cock weighed in the region of 2,2 kg. About 40 anglers took part.
