    I have caught a Bartail in the Ashmead channel Knysna in the late 1990's on a weighted squid pattern. We often caught these in the Kromme river, Eastern Cape, on bait and small liveys. When it comes to eating these, a Kingklip comes in second.
    Will try and take your word for that, but scheme you will have to do better here.

    They go by the Scientific name "Pseudocaranx dentex".... is that the same as Ushaka gave you Flippie?

    They seem to be taken on a relatively frequent occasion in the PE area....

    MC - did you eat the Flattie??? :-)
    Yes that is the same name they gave me (White Kingfish [Pseudocaranx Dentex) but they dont get ant bigger than 1kg here that whe have saw.

    Caranx =kingfish family
    That been said they call yellowtail kingfish in the rest of the world
    And call what we saffas call king fish trevelly

    What ever you do never confuse Fishing With catching Fish !!!!
    Fish Are Friends Not Food

    But your reasoning has a fatal flaw; it overlooks the fact that to comprehend it requires that one rub a few brain cells against each other. The heat thus generated produces the light that illuminates the fact, but alas, not everybody has the resource required to fuel the process --SG

    Nepps, I had Grunter for dinner :-)

    Conrad, I got it on the big flat just behind the Leerie bank in about knee deep water on a dropping tide.

    Conrad got his on the dropping tide too, fishing the drop-off with a big spawning shrimp.

    Put up a fair scrap too.

    I used to catch them in KZN when I was a kid. They are called sandfish there. Never seen such a big one though. The picture really doesn't do it justice.

    There were also hand-sized, banded Leeries in the shallows, which is nice to see. They weren't shy to chase a clouser the same length as they are!
