"We should see a lot of sardine action on the Durban beachfront this weekend, if the trend continues the way its going now, with the fish moving north very fast," he said.

Govender said there should be sardine activity along the entire coastline.

He said it looks good for the next two weeks, but he warned that if the country were to experience another cold front, the fish could head back out to sea.

"For now, it's all looking good for the weekend," Govender said.
