Good day Sealine

I know that Sealine has gone quiet but I really would appreciate you help.
I have either the 15th, 16th or 17th to fish for the day.
I have drop my boy at school at 07:00 and then only can I leave Caledon for a fishing session till about 16:30.

Now what I would like to know is.... Where do you think I should go and on which day?

I have chokka and some fresh Maasbanker I bought yesterday.

I can go pump prawn if I have to. Edibles would be favoured if at all possible.

Easterlies looks hectic.

Please advise.


Regards

If you live in Caledon, rather just go to Struisbaai, Brandfontein, Arniston.

If something happens and you caught in traffic or something, it may take you a while to get through to your boy. Not worth it. You dont want to rush. If you rush, you wont enjoy you fishing.

Also the times available to you, you will be fishing the dropping tide.

If you have the money, get in contact with this Stefan Oosthuizen. He know the area like the back of his hand. He does guiding. Maybe he can share some pointers.

Cool.
You can try suiderstrand too. (If I were you, I would rather try the back)
I have attached a PDF that could be of some help

Wow nice info, what are the favourable wind/ conditions for these spots, particularly Suiderstrand and how does one get to Die Plaat (Struisbaai)?

Not great mate, just small peckers around. But better than sitting at home. Thanx for the tips and advice though.

Bloks dalk is dit n goeie idee om n 9-10ft stokkie met bypassende koffiemalertjie met geweefde lyn saam te neem op sulke uitstappies. Stukkie witmossel aan n nr 2 Mustad Demon sirkelhoekie en "Vas Pappa"! Kleinvissie-vang kan vet pret wees.

Anybody have directions to Verwoed beach in Bettys Bay or any info on spots and preferred conditions in the area, preferably beach, not rocks?

Would like to try there for kob, please advise.
