Hi
The Garden Route produced. I had lots of fun fishing sardine baits on light tackle in the rivers and sea (8ft in estuaries and 11ft in the sea). I always had a smaller rod, rigged up with lure, handy, but the goal was not to target fish on lure.
On sardine baits I managed to catch nice blacktail, shad and a small santer on the reefs (Kleinbrak area-Passie se gat) and size grunter and kabeljou in the river. I also got some leeries on my Heddon Zara Spook topwater, (sardine flavor) Abu Garcia Toby spoon and my first leerie on livebait. Most of the leeries were close to 40cm in length.

Only the grunter, which was around 56cm, and a few blacktail were kept for the pot.

Cheers

Two weeks ago in Witsand I hooked a baby leerie on the small Shiverstick, but he unfortunately got away. Shortly after losing the leerie I got a baby elf on my Toby spoon. This was close to the municipal jetty.

The previous day I caught two steenies between 40cm and 50cm on prawn. They fought hard and were released safely as always. Later that day I got a fat 47cm leerie on my Berkley J Walker lure. This thing seems deadly as I got plenty of follows from the juvenile leeries. It casts well into the wind and even walked side to side when the conditions became choppy.

They sell for R150-R170. I have a short holiday coming up and put this lure to the test. I'm bound to get a hit from a nice leerie.

:?Treble hooks should be BANNED...they are horrible things...Ive seen when there is a shad frenzy at a spot and okies are so in a rush to get the hook out and ascared of being bitten they just grab the lure and yank it out the shads mouth ..pulling jaw et al...especially if its undersized and then toss it back...WTF???...ALL my spoons have single short shank live bait 6/0 hooks and the barb is squashed...clean in and clean out...why short shank??..well when that kobbie shakes his head the weight of the spoon does not smash his mouth to pieces ..especially if its a juvenile....:)

has anybody noticed that the Sprat Stick swims up-side-down? If you look at the profile and weight distribution it is inclined to do so. Still catches fish tho'.

Moby28 I didn't notice the Sprat Stick swimming upside down at all. Have you fished it in the Hermanus Lagoon and what was the outcome?

Kenty I have replaced the treble hooks on all my spoons with Rockpoint singles, while my stickbaits have all been rigged with Mustad inlines in order to minimize damage to fish. Maybe I should also go the inlines root with my topwater lures.

Hi, there are a few massive shad in the Botriver lagoon. Not sure about the Hermanus lagoon. But I know that the locals are raping the fish stocks with their 'trek nets'.

Got this little guy on Saturday. My first leerie on a Rapala lure. Used the Skitter V. After I hooked him, three of his mates tried to take the lure from him. I also had quite a few chases on the Max Rap but no hookups.
