OK.....It's no secret that SL is taking a tumble or dive - or the Nazis on here might disagree??? hold your horses, we know many members left, some are less active blah blah blah....a bit like watching paint dry at times.

OK, lets do this - for the new and old members, lets introduce ourselves a bit..........where you from, what you like to do, kids, where you live, what hobbies you got, are you collecting anything, you like reading what books / authors? Shit an endless list, perhaps get some thread rolling again, like back in the days, hundreds of posts a day man, for example okes looking a plumber, voila post it in the lounge, 5 minutes later the oke is sorted.

Yes, we had some assholes on here too, fighting and the ever correct protection rackets, but maybe they are gone now? Perhaps they will jump out of the woodwork now.


Our priorities changed, some moved on, we got kids, we have projects, some okes are fishing less - endless list again.... So, lets do an intro again, perhaps you have a great future fishing buddy living just down the drag from you?

To be honest I belong to Ultimate Angling too, also not many posts going about daily....what has happened?

Lets try, at least this is my shot and my last shot - I will be gone too.

I'm with you on both accounts.
Seems that's the way it's nowadays...there's other social media platforms and groups that have replaced the idle chatter here.
Although SL is still growing...it is doing it at the expense of others,some have chosen to move on and are not seen online hy eye much.

Can't poke fingers, no-one to blame really...let time take its course.

I am guilty too hey, but then again I have been channeling my energy and time towards my pozzy, so NO fishing, it was "hardcore" promise to myself - simple because I need to finish up, and target in reach - March 2017 done and dusted all in cash. So otherwise I have doing a little "Farming" too, more about that later, watch the space.... I will vleisboek you on that...

But, it's like if SL lost it's essence and oomf, of course okes move on, it's how it is. Now the flip side to this, will be ok so many dudes joining as you say, no initiative or really new threads mate, sadly the truth. Ok take for example how many "hits" this post had, how many newbies replied ZERO, but but but - they are quick to ask you a question or PM you a question....regarding a tip or issue. Not true Simon? Yes it is bra

How I use to enjoy those DIY posts,Bennie's lure making, the collections - all crazy - Loved it....

See Simon, I belong to some gun / hunting pages too....they also have an introduction system...here not - the oke sommer posts one way or sommer sells one way...LOL

Remember the lekka topics the okes use to post in the lounge!

Again, I don't say each and every bean & pea in the packet will be quilty, we all change, but it's up to the new generation on SL to participate too. AMEN

Hi my name is Dr. Hoff..I like to fish..I'm not really a doctor! Haha..just a fishing, sea, sunshine and fresh air addict..

Ja, I am a fishing addict..I gave up on the corporate life more than a decade ago to enjoy the fresh air and move with tides..I'm not rich, but I have free time to fish, my life is rich! It has been a tough ride also with many times not being able to sniff a tide..but the road less travelled has it's perks.

I also talk to birds for fun when not working or fishing or browsing the web.. Have fish eagles, fly-catchers, robins, swallows, white eyes, prinias, sunbirds, orioles and more that come to say howsit on the regular..Have a pair of flycatchers that harass me for worms a few times a day, the male a long-time resident of the garden, will eat out of my hand, the female is a newcomer but has quickly figured out life is good here but is still a bit wary. I talk to the birds at my fishing spots, one would be amazed to know how long these little guys live, 20 years is common, and how smart they are..and how persistant they can be, a bird is a little dinosaur and they don't take no for an answer when they want something. And the will take note of you, they're not doff at all and can remember you for years like dog can. My mates ma takes the cake though, her local wild birds fly in and come sit on her head during dinner to see if there are titbits for them, his bro has an account here..They all pull more fish than I dream of but that's another story..Birdfolk ja..It's a constant bird party in my garden..When I wake up at sunrise because the birds are making such a racket, then I know I must get up and pack the car and head off to the rocks..its gonna be a good fishing day.

I propagate indigenous trees now and do some consulting to pay the petrol and bait bills and used to farm mushrooms, cucumbers, chillies, marrows, all sorts..

but ja..I've said it before..We need free s#it, and does not have to big ticket items _seal1_ That is the best value advertising, when I ran a bar, the best and cheapest advertising was always to write off 2 bottles of tequila and then walk around hand out shots and get a party started!
Also some competitions to get people posting pictures and reports..and better fishermen etiquette and better care of stocks. People are loath to post too many details, which is cool, as often the masses descend, spoil a good thing and leave a mess. Advertisers could be approached to create a cost effective win-win situation..
We also need the knots and traces section fixed or redone..someone is running the site, and whether its making bucks or just getting by or running at a loss..someone has a real stake in whether the site is busy or not, can they not just fix this finally _seal1_ Not to ***** haha..for the newbies and others..
But ja..

also in my spare time, I catch tuna on my flyboard ;)

And also don't take the hits or views on a page too seriously, everytime you refresh your own page it gets viewed.

I'm also having so much fun watching the politics at the moment so less time spent here! That wild coast mining that was being bulldosed through is looking less likely now and all the dirty laundry is coming out, and unfortunately murders in this regard have still happened.But..The coal mines created corruptly in ecologically sensitive areas are all under review now or will be in the future most likely..The nuke plant that no-one wants looks further and further away to everyone except eskom and that is a lot better than the situation was..

I'm all glad and following that all..I've said it for more than a decade, the guys in charge are gangsters, straight up, if people only knew..now everyone is coming to their senses, thank god! If we had a wind turbine and solar on every roof in this country, and we reprocessed our sewerage and bio-waste for gas. fuel and fertiliser we would meet base energy and food demands, and it would be cheaper than any other option in the longrun. I was saying it in news comments a decade ago when it was still anonymous, it still just as valid except the price has come down drastically and new tech exists to make petrol from our poo cheaply and effectively, not just bio-gas..The future is here..vancouver is already building a city scale pilot.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-3907250/Is-POOP-future-fuel-Researchers-reveal-radical-turn-human-sewage-oil.html

I still think they must pre-filter all the atlantic seaboard poo and pump it out to sea like they do, but through huge high surface area bio-filters..like in a fishtank just on a grander scale and able to cope with the sea conditions there, and then that will start a cascade of nutrients to feed to shellfish, plankton and microbes on and around these new permanent off-limit FAD's which will feed the larvae and baitfish like mackeral (who'll just eat the poo anyway, bonus!) and pelagics..Good for fishing all round..

:) This is the lounge after all..

I'm a reptile man myself. My West African Gaboon adders are the pride of my collection.

I used to like photography, but these days videography is what interests me more. Going to buy a couple of Apple Motion 5 courses so that I can start with that.

Other hobby I have is making my Vibrolure pumpkin seeds.

Howzit Guys... challenge accepted ;)
i'm a relative newbie to sealine, as well as to serious r&s fishing - almost exactly a year since i got my first 14' set-up. in general i'm a quiet person, i'm also not nuts about computers and such so am not online very much - this combined with my relative lack of knowledge i do not post a great deal on sealine - generally there's always someone else who has better advice, which is mainly why i feel so grateful for this place - i've learnt SO MUCH here. but also, it's lekker to read / see other okes' stories / passion... and although there's some soap-opera vibes now and then, there's also a very cool culture here which i enjoy / appreciate. i also did not fully understand the culture / etiquette at first (and perhaps still don't) so made a few little mistakes like hijacking someone's thread by asking a question which accidentally took it in a different direction / seemed to ruffle his feathers, so i went even more quiet while i learnt to understand that side of it better.

i grew up in suburbia then lived and worked in the city for about 12 years before i moved out to "the country" about 5 years ago - now very blessed to be married to an awesome woman and live on a farm (luckily no kids yet, just two dogs / two cats), with a river and all sorts of cool flora/fauna, just ten minutes drive from Struisbaai (living so close to Struis it almost seems sinful to not be into fishing :P).

in the past i've been serious into several things, mountain biking, hiking, diving, partying, played bass in a few small-time bands, bonsai / other gardening, and a lot of "making stuff" - jewelry, simple furniture items, etc.
i read a lot, and somewhat to my own surprise i enjoy sci-fi novels the most nowadays, but good stuff - not the typical cheesy crap. a favourite author in this regard is China Mieville, another would be Ian M. Banks.

i've been keen on fishing my entire life though - fresh water, handlines off the dolosse as a laaitie, scratching around the rocks with my ancient little 8'/ whatever.
but the last year or so i'm rather obsessed - the bike, canoe, guitars, air rifle, tools... - everything's just gathering dust lately as there's always traces to be made or something like that.
sometimes i think i should try to restore a bit of balance with my time / interests but it just seems impossible, and right now i just don't want to - fishing is so multi-faceted - so much that captivates / challenges me - the beauty of the fish one catches, the thrill of releasing them and watching them swim off, of learning so much about each species and becoming passionate about conserving them, yet keeping the odd one and feeling proud yet humbled to bring home a lekker meal that you didn't just buy at the shop, spending so much time in nature - going to places way off the beaten path that you'd never end up in otherwise, sometimes in the least pleasant conditions... spending extended time in one spot and seeing the change / incidental activity over the space of several hours - getting a taste of the natural rhythm and cycle of things. and going at the strangest times - eg. in the middle of the night, clambering over the rocks, seeing all the amazing creatures out and about that are normally deep in their holes / burrows during the day.
Then there's the attempt to learn to understand / interpret the tides / wind and waves in order to catch more, something i have a long way to go with but love focusing on.
and the technical side - gear, knots, reel internals, different lines and their properties, the list goes on and on... - i've always enjoyed working with my hands, just private / as a hobby as well as in several of the many different jobs i've had - jack of all trades master of none - carpentry, silver-smithing, welding, general diy, stripping and assembling machines/parts - be it electric, petrol, pneumatic... and ja, kind of unexpectedly fishing offers a great deal of stimulus in this direction too..
then there's the challenge of developing skills like casting better.
and stuff like the planning that goes into a big trip - watching conditions, prepping gear optimally to have all you need / carry as little weight as possible, and spend as little time prepping traces/etc at the water, selecting / collecting the best bait.
and fishing buddies, and chatting / theorizing about all this stuff over and over..
and i've only just scratched the surface! - just got a spinning / drop-shot setup so that's a whole new facet to learn / explore, and also just just starting to look beyond edibles after my first run-in with a large shark a couple of weeks ago - he bit me off but only after a good little fight - the power was just incredible!

everyone should have a healthy pastime that offers relaxation / fresh air / exercise / excitement - i'm just glad i chose fishing because it's the best! :-P
my wife has complained at times that i'm never home / too focused on fishing... and fair enough, i've gotten better but there've been times i took it too far. but even when she's complained she's often ended with saying something like "oh well, at least i'm more into that than something like sitting in the bar drinking and watching rugby all the time".
but i think she got her first proper taste of what it's all about yesterday and can now understand why i love it so much - it was my birthday so she had to do whatever i wanted, so of course i took her fishing ;), and she hooked a steenie of maybe 50cm on my little bass rod - after a really good fight (from the fish as well as from her - i had to talk her through it but she did incredibly well) she lost it right at her feet, just as i started moving to grab the leader - naturally she loved the excitement of the fight, and was really upset about losing it (just like any fisherman), even last night she was like "can't believe i lost that fish". but now she's keen to go again, so that's lekker, just got a few strict conditions, namely that it can't be too cold / windy, and no way will she touch red bait EVER, hehe (i told her that's ok - gallie season's over anyways, and i wouldn't want her to try take on a cracker quite yet!).

so ja anyways, i should get back to work - already got to stay late tonight.. Serra - thank you for the post / inviting us to do this. i hope it works / helps give SL a bit of a kick start. tight lines!

Aqua - i love the first pic of the puffy - how the head is sharp but you caught the movement of the body - incredible.
and Dr Hoff - you seem a very switched on guy, a lot of what you said resonated - the more people think that way the better / the sooner we can get this country moving in the right direction, as it deserves.

That's not a puff adder, that's a common egg eater. They rub their scales together to create a hissing sound. He probably used a slow shutter speed to create motion blur.

Mens moet so nou en dan op sealine kom rondkrap en kyk wat vang die manne an. Nou die thread wat ek net moet op comment.

Visvang bly my nommer een stokperdtjie, hou my uit die kwaad en geld min.

2001 het ek en my pa twee metaalverklikkers gekoop en dit kompeteer goed met die visvang. Al ons finds gan in n vertoonkas in die kantoor. Volg my op Instagram om van my finds te sien #fishingthe2oceans.

Ek woon al van 1999 in Struisbaai en het my visvang geleer by Oom Adrie (Oorlede), Oom Rupert die twee ooms het hul fietse ingerig om te kan ry op die strand en van n belman vang kon jy hul niks vertel nie. Jasper is die plaat se steenbras en kabeljou koning en mag mar n plaat galjoen plattrek in die eerste brander. Harry, Mike en Blom was my fishing partners toe ek begin kompeterend vang het en het my al hul die rots en strand truuks geleer.

Salt Fishing South Africa and the era of instant Facebook Posts is upon us. But its just not the same as logging onto sealine and making a nice post about your fishing session or helping a newbie with a simple question.

You meet awesome people on sealine that influence you not only in your fishing careers but also your day to day lives.

long may it continue
