Good morning fishers of men.

This is my first report.
Firstly, thank you for a fantastic website forum and for making our lives much much simpler.

well I am a beginner at fishing and there's lots to learn in time, but fishing will teach you a great deal more than anything else in life.

That said I'm from Pmb, and the last few months we've been doing weekend trips to the south coast and local dbn including the wharf and blue lagoon. This past week my brothers-in-law and myself drove north to Eshowe for some business and after that we made a stop at the Tugela mouth spoke to a few locals and then proceeded to Tinley Manor. We quickly looked at the water and the wind was just about 5 or 6km. We dropped a line in the water roughly at about half 12.
We were targeting Shad and had also made a general trace for one of our other rods. After about 25 minutes and a few lost bites my swaarie felt a small bite on his rod. He looks at his brother and then sets the hook and next thing he comes to the rocks. I think and stand to be corrected that he pulled out a garfish. photo taken and then released the little guy.

I'm not sure maybe going off topic here but I need some advice about a reel. My third bro in law wants to buy a reel. He is dead set on Shimano and needs some advice picking a reel with a budget of R1000-R1100. If anyone can recommend or advise please do. feel free to give suggestions for other brands as well. coffee grinder though.

not sure if you've seen the Penn Battle or Penn Fierce range but they spec against some much more expensive grinders at a much reduced price. The drag system on the Penn Battle is unbelievably good.

Good morning LavaKas, your cousin's first fish looks like a stone bream and the second is a steenbras. I may be mistaken though. Nice catches.
