Ugu South Coast Tourism has reported more sardine action, with netting taking place in Pennington and large numbers of gannets, sharks and dolphins have been seen pursuing the bait balls further north into Scottburgh.

Some Durban expert microlight pilots caught a birds-eye view of the activity. Noel McDonogh says it was great to see the ocean come alive.

"Many sharks were spotted thrashing the shoals. We saw a fisherman trailing fish with sharks trailing him. We spotted a Southern Right whale 1km off Scottburgh Beachfront near."

Brad Isaacson says the weather was permitting.

"A spectacular visibility in all direction. Sardine shoals were spotted off Scottburgh beach. Whales were breaching between Clansthal and Aliwal Shoal. 

"Bull Sharks over three metres were feeding off the sardines. Boats launching off the Scottburgh beach netting the sardines and a large shoal was caught."
