    Not to get your hopes up. I did some research on the same. The findings boiled down to lots of hungry people mean lots of fish traps and lots of nets. For the most part anything caught inshore goes into the pot. There is good inshore, flats fishing in Mozambique to the south and several lodges run by South Africans. I also understand that Mafia Island, Tanzania has some potential GT fishing. I learned this thru literature from a resort on the island. Good Luck, Mike
