    So who has been fishing where? I fished with Grant yesterday at Strandfontein for sharks and rays and we both blanked! Eish man- the big bronzies are avoiding me like the plague!

    Of interest is that 2 weekends ago I launched at Gordons Bay and we ended up on various reefs in False Bay from about 04:00 till 12:00. And shyte we had fun! Lots of kob on maasbankers and elf and I even landed snoek on spoon while casting for elf! I could not believe it but they were obviously feeding just below the surface about 1km off the strand reefs of all places! Wish I had my fly rod...

    I'll be heading to Harmony Park in Gordons Bay at sparrows tomorrow morning to fish the incoming tide from the reefs. Apparently lots of Kob and Geelbek around at the moment. If any of you guys are keen to find a spot on the reefs with me, you are more than welcome. This is not one for the faint hearted, and I suggest you travel light. One misplaced foot could easily find you upto your neck in water.

    So how did the weekends fishing pan out for you guys?
    I lost my biggest fish ever today from the reefs. Time 9.15am, about half an hour after low, anchovy wrapped in chokka. Sudden pick-up followed by a short dash to the side, and then turning towards the horizon and turning on the taps, (about 4 revolutions per second against a stiff drag, one that I could just pull out with my bare hand) taking a good 100metres of line . The fish then went and sat behind a reef, so I gave slack, and then the head banging began, but the fish still didnt budge. After about 3 minutes i felt a bit of movement, so I put on the pressure and the fish then headed towards the horizon again and my hook trace knot decided that it had had enough and popped. Fish gone!

    I have no idea what it is that I hooked into there, but based on what I have just described,what do you guys think it was?
