Howsit guys, I hope everyone is well. I'm just reading through the old posts here and there is so much information it's insane. Remember when you started out and you weren't sure about something, you'd trial and error or ask the guys at the local tackle shop... and then came Sealine. I'd been fishing since I was a lighty but things I saw here blew my mind. I'm curious.What is the one thing that changed your game that you learned about here on Sealine? For me it was bait presentation and targeting specific species and knots... Basically everything lol.

Keen to see what everyone else has to share

Joh man there are so many excellent topics, it's difficult to choose just one or two. I always search Sealine before fishing new areas, this has been very helpful over time.
Otherwise when I got started out, the "pinned posts" on R&S also was very helpful:

http://www.sealine.co.za/view_topic.php?id=94317&forum_id=1

http://www.sealine.co.za/view_topic.php?id=81271&forum_id=1

Also lots of entertainment in between, fights over fish sizes etc etc.

I have learned a lot here about tackle , baiting and where and to target different fish species, but what really also enjoy is descovering loacations. When someone posts a location I have not heard of, I would google it to see where it is and view the images of the place. I have discovered some beautiful gems here in South Africa.To name a few like Victoria Bay, Duiwenshok, Koensrust. Magical places!!

For me its the lure angling section and the posts on casting. Helped a lot with finding the right line and leader. Was also casting like a mullet but doing much better now with good technique.

You should look at arcgis.com too for maps. Its free to register but most times the details is a lot better than Google maps. Also helpful as some maps were made at different tides as the Google maps - usefull to spot some types of structure.

Drag stops big fish, not capacity

To be honest. The amount I learned from this site is too much to mention here.

But those 2 lines will always stick with me. ( Especially for non-eds)
