The tiny silver fish were netted at various spots‚ including Umkomaas‚ Margate and Ramsgate.
Mike Anderson-Reade from the Sharks Board said there were three nettings in Margate.
Cameron Johnston of Salt Water Fishing SA posted: “We have just heard that 2 nets of sardines have been pulled at Umkomaas. Both nets were proper size and there are apparently game fish smashing on the backline. Typical for a Monday!”
Photographs of the shoals being netted were also posted on The Sardine Run Facebook page.
