Backline Fishing Trips in Durban, South Africa

Backline Fishing Durban | Backline Fishing Charters | Durban FishingBackline Fishing Charters in Durban

Backline Fishing by definition means fishing in the sea behind the breakers (waves breaking towards the shore), however in Durban it has a different meaning and it has commonly become known as fishing done in the sheltered bay in front of the Durban Beachfront near uShaka on the northern side of the entrance to the Durban harbour.

Due to the north and south piers of the harbour entrance and the Bluff mountain it has created a sheltered and protected area that generally has flatter waters and so allows the opportunity to fish in mostly calm conditions and experience the open sea without the bigger waves and currents.

On most days Backline is calm and sheltered but it can become rather choppy when the North East or East Wind (Beasterly Easterly) blows strong and the piers and mountain offer no shelter from this and on these days we will go and fish in the port to keep the trip comfortable.

Sometimes we may go just south of the harbour if conditions allow, usually it is not as calm in this area as it is not sheltered but under certain conditions this area can be calm and the fishing is often good there.

Note: Generally spreaking Backline Fishing is targeting small fish like Shad and Mackerel along with other smaller species on light tackle, on occasion we hook up something bigger and even sharks. If you looking for bigger fish rather book a Deep Sea of Mid Deep trip

Our Backline trip and Harbour trips are the same trip offered as Backline/Harbour, you can choose either or a mix of both and if Backline is too much for you we just go inside the port.
